Chocolate souffle from BakerZin

Hmm... In BakerZin's opinion, Souffles is one of the best French inventions in the kitchen. It seems like apart from the warm chocolate cake, BakerZin prided their Bailey's Irish Cream souffle and chocolate souffle as BakerZin's range of delightfully flavoured souffles taste like heaven on earth but 15 minutes wait is required since they bake it a la minute but guarantee it's worth every secnd's swet anticipation.

Each serving costs $10.80 (excluding 7% GST and 10% service charge) and with a minimum spending of $20 and charging it to Citibank credit cards will entitle a 15% discount.

Soft, fluffy and totally to-die-for, BakerZin's chocolate souffle is baked a la minute and not to be missed. Enjoy it with a sensational scoop of Sumatra white chocolate ice-cream for that extra oomph!

Fen's comments

Hehe, for those who are regular on this blog will know why I have ordered this. It is always easier to make a back-to-back comparison and thus was a dilemma for me since I wanted the warm chocolate cake.

I have only tried chocolate souffle from Max Brenner, Laurent Bernard and Pastry Bar, thus making this the 4th.

Max Brenner's seems to be a warm chocolate cake so I won't include into my comparison.

Laurent Bernard as claimed by some of the food bloggers seems to be one of the best but Yuan felt that the chocolate is alittle burnt and does not justify the trip to Portsdown Road while Crystal (one of my ex classmate) felt that souffles could be puffier, but love the dark chocolate sauce inside... Overall, not the best souffle she've tried, but still quite gd. To me, the winning factor about Laurent Bernard's chocolate souffle is the sauce that came with it and according to Ice, they used Araguani cocoa in their souffle. The only setback is that it is very expensive ($16.50++).

Pastry Bar, on the other hand, was too liquified one-third of the souffle's base so it tasted better when it has cooled down.

So, for BakerZin... I thought it was the cheapest best alternative among the entire lot I have tried. I am okay with its chocolate content. Light and fluffy with its base soaked with chocolate and the ice-cream that goes with it is not overly sweet but sufficiently rich and smooth. The only thing that disappoints was that the souffle sank before I took a picture so the presentation was not as beautiful as the previous few. I think I will stick to eating a souffle from BakerZin since the serving and pricing is reasonable.

Yuan's comments

This is a simple chocolate souffle. No fancy ingredients, just chocolate and some nuts on the top. I liked the texture of this souffle - light and fluffy. The only disappointment as Fen pointed out was that the souffle sank before it was served.
