Mention Mad about Sucre and immediately, you would think of dreamy, gorgeous-looking cakes and decadent desserts.
Although they have a one-page selection of savory items (i.e mainly smoked salmon and tarte) on their menu, regular patrons wanted something more substantial and when we knew about their pop shop concept (a concept of featuring temporary food items), we decided to give it a try.
*update: on 16 Feb 2016, they have launched a Spring collection of cakes, desserts, lunch and dinner menu.
Instead of calling it cocktail, this floral teatail comprised of sparkling mineral water, gin, Cointreau, wild blossom honey, lemon lychee and elderflower. While it was bursting with strong notes of lychee and elderflower, it was just a tad too sugary on our palette.
This unassuming-looking plate of tofu and pea sprout was extremely flavorful. The silky tofu was served cold (much to our delight) and the raw pea sprouts were a medley of vibrant green. The miso dressing had the right amount of acidity and sweetness that complimented the whole dish really well. In fact, I was super inspired to make this at home.
It was not hard to imagine why this was the crowd favorite amongst the diners. The pasta was perfectly seasoned with an apparent hint of rosemary. With the right amount of garlic used in the aglio olio and king prawn grilled separately, this was my favorite dish of the night.
The flesh felt right off the bones and the Cajun marinade penetrated deeply into each ribs. It did reminded me a little of hoisin sauce.
Word has it that the chocolate truffles were so good that 2 European embassies (they can’t say which ones) have ordered them as Christmas gifts. According to the friendly and chatty service staff, no sugar has been added to any of the 70% chocolates from Mexico, St. Dominique and Venezuela. Verdict: They were indeed not very sweet at all and if you are a chocolate connoisseur, you would seek delight in tasting the robust cocoa notes from each component of the dessert. My personal favorite was the Dark Chocolate Dome.
We left the place with satisfied bellies and kudos to the service staff (didn’t managed to get his name) who changed our cutlery before each courses, I thought that was a very nice touch for a casual café.
Mad About Sucre is located at Teo Hong Road (adjacent to Bukit Pasoh), so parking there (especially on weekends) could be tricky. You could always park at The Pinnacles and take a 5-min light stroll over to the café.
We paid in total $109.60 for this meal for 2 pax.
