Dazzling Café @ Capitol Piazza Review

Dazzling Cafe Matcha with red beans Honey Toast
Dazzling Cafe 蜜糖吐司專賣店 is a cafe/dessert restaurant from Taiwan, and opened it's first stall in Singapore Capitol Piazza (Clarke Quay / City Hall MRT) this year. It's popular for its 'instagrammable' honey toasts - "Serving Traditional Honey Toast with a modern twist". Basically it's ice cream stacked on top of golden toasted bread with generous portion of cream poured over. It is commonly frequented by celebrities and socialites in Taiwan and has been crowned as "A Celebrity Hotspot."

Back in June when we went there at 11:45am and a long queue has already formed up for it opening hour at 12pm. Waited for about 45mins to be seated - it was hard to tell if the food only tasted good because we were so hungry after the long wait. The place is elegantly decorated in soft pastel colours, suitable for birthday celebration (entire 2nd floor available for booking) or an all-girls high tea gathering.

Prices at average about $20++ each for both desserts and main courses (risotto and spaghetti), so we ordered one each to try.

Truffle Fries
We started off with Truffle Fries (250g per serve) - $10.90. Although lacking in presentation, the fries are really covered with truffle flakes and oil. Decent for truffle lovers - 7/10 

Truffle Risotto  Picture

Truffle Mushroom Risotto with Freshly Shaved Truffles - $24.90 (320g per serve) is simply awesome~  You can see the truffles slices, and the thickness of the risotto, complimented with a dash of sour cream. Each mouthful is bursting with truffle taste. I would even say this is better than their famous honey toasts. Just blogging about it makes me wanna eat it again - 10/10 (must try!) 

Truffle Mushroom Risotto with Freshly Shaved Truffles
The truffles taste is so flavourful, it actually made the truffle fries taste like normal fries. So if you u are ordering this, probably give the other appetizers (buffalo wings or sauteed mushroom or dazzling platter) in the menu a try.

If you are more of a noodles person, do try their chef recommended dishes - Mentaiko Spaghetti in Cream Sauce or Black Truffle and Wild Mushroom Spaghetti next time.

Dazzling Cafe Honey Toast
Finally, the Matcha with Azuki Beans Honey Toast - $19.90. It comes with red beans, ice cream, matcha cream, cream, toasts, topped off with a matcha macaroon. Beautiful presentation, not sure where to start? It's ok, the waiter / waitress with come over to gracefully dissect this ice cream from the honey toasts after you're done with the photo taking. 

Taking off the ice cream will reveal that there are little cubes of honey toasts inside for you to dip into the ice cream. Overheard the waiter telling the table beside us that the cubes are of different shapes for each kind of toasts - to make things more interesting each time you open up a toast.

The verdict - I really liked it! Kelvin was not a fan though, he thought the bread tasted like normal bread. But I thought it went really well with the cream. Maybe it's just against his manly ego to admit that he liked it haha. Anyway the toast is really filling, so it can actually be taken as a main course. We were glad that we only ordered 1 toast, the matcha flavour was quite refreshing and not too sweet so we managed to finish it. Those with a sweet tooth can try the dark chocolate or hazelnut chocolate honey toast  - 9/10 (worth a shot)
