No. 9 Praline Feuillete from SomethingToGo

Little did I know that this is a drive-through gourmet deli, so in a way, this is a place to call, order, drive-in and go.

Something To Go @ The Regent

I didn't have a detailed look of what is available on the shelf but SomethingToGo has a pre-order menu which allows ordering at least 1 hour in advance and delivery charges ($50) will be waived for orders above $300. The selection offers is pretty comprehensive ranging from Breakfast, Italian, Continental, Asian Summer Palace Specialties and Salads. For the menu, it is easily obtainable upon request via their email.

Shop Interior

Apart from the wide selection of freshly baked breads, savouries and cakes, it also has a retail section selling fine jams, dried fruit and specialty fudge.

Cake display

Didn't know that their doughnuts are popular but I have to admit the cakes display look lovely and the selection is pretty decent, ranging from chocolate, fruits, tarts and surprisingly durian mousse.

Outdoor dining area

Anyway, SomethingToGo has an outdoor dining area. However, given the hot weather in Singapore, the food purchased from SomethingToGo can also be enjoyed at the Regent's Tea-Lounge but the price will be different from the one on their menu. Also, at Regent's Tea Lounge, they serve afternoon tea, a 3 tier set served with sandwiches, scones and deserts on weekdays and high tea in a buffet style on weekends.

Praline Feuillette

My reason for visiting SomethingToGo is obvious, as the Sunday Times has listed their Praline Feuillete to be one of the 50 yummiest cakes. This cake was described to be "Smooth, spongy and soft, all these textures come together delightfully in this cake where chocolate mousse is layered onto a chocolate sponge with a crunchy hazelnut base".

Chocolate mousse and hazelnut praline is one of the most common combination found in hotel bakeries and patisseries; and most of the time, this combination is neutral enough to be received by the majority. This is definitely one of the better ones I had but depending on one's location, Privé bakery café and The Patissier are pretty good alternatives too.
