Chocolate DeSténation

Chocolate DeSténation

Chocolate DeSténation is one of the eateries located along the Discovery Walk at 313@Somerset and adopts a al-fresco dining concept. Finally, there is dine-in areas to enjoy DeSté's creations.

Discovery Walk at 313@Somerset

For now, there are several promotions namely the dessert degustation set @ $14.80+ (daily from noon to 6pm) which includes a pastry of your choice, one chocolate bon bon, a scoop of gelato and coffee / tea.

Alternatively, enjoy a 1-for-1 Hot Chocolate on Tuesday or Ladies Night on Wednesday for a 1-for-1 Chocolate Cocktail and Wine from 5pm till late.

Piedmont Pave`

A little disappointed that their signature Candle is no longer available in individual portion and the other that stirs my curiousity is Piedmont Pave`, a combination of chocolate sponge, cream, crunchy praline and Piedmont hazelnut cream. Once again, the component that caught my attention was the gold-dusted chocolate topping. Apart from that, the entire combination of cream and sponge reminds me of a regular cream cake found in neighbourhood confectionaries. Don't get me wrong, I guess this is an effect of eating cream and cake instead of chocolate mousse.

Nougatine & Rum

Due to the hot weather in Singapore, eating this (Nougatine & Rum) gelato is almost like drinking milkshake. It has a strong milk taste and very mild alcohol content. Sweet in Fen's opinion. One thing we notice, the gelato in the freezer seems to be in molten state, not sure if the temperature is not right or it is meant to be served in a half watery state.

Chocolate Hazelnut Frappe

I was rather disappointed by this Iced Chocolate Frappé (Note that the drink is not part of the set) considering that I have just drank Chocolate beverages from Jewels and Laurent in the past 5 days. This drink in my opinion tasted closer to chocolate milk from the supermarket with some chcoolate shavings as decorations.

I have only tried the italian garden from deste, it's nice! However, I have issues with how their cakes don't look very 'neat':P
