Chocolate soufflé at Max Brenner

Chocolate soufflé (S$15 exlcusive of 7% GST & 10% service)
Can't find the original description from the online menu

"Warm chocolate cake with a melting dark chocolate. Served with vanilla ice-cream, fresh strawberries with warm chocolate sauce"

Fen: The very first thought that hit my mind when I ate this was, "How does the warm chocolate cake of BakerZin taste like?" The texture is soft and rich, not too sweet and the centre core is moist with chocolate. However, I have heard of hypes and "professional" criticisms about a perfect soufflé and frankly speaking, I have no clues of how a good one should taste like. From the definition given by wikipedia, I thought is a soufflé should be a light and fluffy dessert that "blow up" or more loosely "puff up" so I am not sure is this the expected taste.

Those that are expert in baking or tasting soufflé, feel free to comment.

Personal I found this cake similar to most warm chocolate cakes in the market. However the chocolate drizzle they used is unique. Typically most cafe uses Hershey chocolate to drizzle around the plate but Max uses a different chocolate which tastes better.

finally i get to taste this souffle..
not that fantastic
or maybe the chef on that day wasn't having good mood..
though the chocolate was a better quality, the chocolate inside did no melt out like other warm chocolate cake does
was kinda harden..
nothing special overall
