What's a trip to Robertson Quay without a visit to Laurent Bernard? For a chocolate lover like me, that would be pretty aimless actually! I do wish sometimes that I could enjoy my dessert in the comfort of the café, but the "no photography" policy on its premises has kept me out. For now, my delicious treat and camera can only stare defiantly at Laurent Bernard from afar, as seen from the light green tent in the distance.
Holding this box in my hand was like holding a casing containing the Holy Grail. I kid you not. I've been wanting to eat this lovely little slice of heaven for a very long time. And finally, the moment has arrived.
Chocolate Tart: 5/5
Indeed, it was perfect, and judging by its contents, it could very well be used as an aphrodisiac. Cake, tart, whatever you want to call it - this is the best of its kind that I've eaten so far. Of course, while the hazelnut-chocolate praline cakes like those from 1 Caramel and Checkers Deli are more spongy, as a tart, this one is more crisp and crunchy with three layers of distinctive tastes and textures. And what made this chocolate tart a wonder really is its deliciously smooth dark chocolate. Oh so good.
It has taken me a long time to find my one true love, but I'm happy to have finally found it.
