bookmark_borderDark Chocolate Ice Cream By Awfully Chocolate, VivoCity

Well… the name of the shop; Awfully Chocolate, says it all. It’s a place with simplistic design / layout that sells limited but awfully good desserts that are made of… well, chocolate! Unlike any other chocolate stores, this particular one started out as a cake shop but grew over the years to serve more than just chocolate cakes.

Awfully Chocolate

Their menu is pretty much simple and straightforward. To give an idea how simple the menu is, there’s only one type of ice cream; Dark Chocolate Ice Cream, sold by them.

Dark Chocolate Ice Cream

Forget about Baskin Robbins and Haagen Daz as this is it. This is the one you should go for. Rich and full flavour, it’s probably the best dark chocolate ice cream I’ve ever tasted. Best of all, it’s surprisingly not as sweet as I thought it would be.

Now that I’ve tried their ice cream, I can’t wait to sample their awfully rich Super Stacked Chocolate Cake – six freaking layers of chocolate fudge in it!

bookmark_borderDinner At Marche, VivoCity

One will be spoiled by choices available to them when they are asked to pick a restaurant / cafe to dine in VivoCity, Singapore. Well, I know I will be. However, having said that, I already knew what I wanted to eat when I was there during my recent visit (to Singapore).

Marche Singapore

Heard and read about it, Marche is famous for its open-kitchen concept as well as the freshness ingredients used for their food. The restaurant is rather easy to find as it is located at the top floor of VivoCity shopping mall. Design wise, it exhibits relaxing environment and one can enjoy the outside view (from inside) while dining in the restaurant.

Unlike the one (franchise) in Malaysia, each patron will be given a smartcard. Pretty high-tech, eh…

Guest Card

My friend and I decided to share the things we ordered. And long story short, here’s what we (or more like me only) took…

Garlic Bread

Seafood Pasta

The garlic bread was pretty good as there was decent amount of garlic butter spread on it. As for the seafood pasta, the cream-based sauce was too thick / rich as though it was more like a gravy. We liked it but after a couple of mouthful of it, we felt like we had enough of it. The seafood was fresh though…

Ribeye Steak

French Garlic Pork Sausage

The rib eye was cooked to perfection while the sausage was slight salty but good.

Fried Calamari

The fried calamari / squids were good as well although the batter was falling apart.

Spanish Seafood Paella

The only big letdown was the Spanish Paella. Somehow or someway, they overcooked it till the point of burning the base of the pan. Each and every spoon we took tasted like we were eating carbon. It left a bitter taste in our mouth and we didn’t bother to finish it. On the other note, I was really tempted to order their Pork Knuckles to give it a try but on second thought, it’s a lil too much / big and we were stuffed at this point..

Crepe with Chocolate Ice Cream

For dessert, my friend took crepe with one scoop of chocolate ice cream with fresh strawberries. The crepe was thin and light while the ice cream was rich and packed with chocolate chunks.


All in all, apart from the burnt Spanish Paella, the food was good. I love the concept of the restaurant as well as the wide variety of food they have. The front staffs were friendly while some of the cooks / chef were not-so-friendly on that night. The price is kinda steep and hence, it is definitely not an everyday meal for an average joe (like me). And last but not least, it is definitely better than the one in Malaysia. ‘Nuff said.
