Today’s post is about desserts and coffee at an Italian restaurant, Brunetti Tanglin Mall. We did not know about much this restaurant, but it had the most obscene display of desserts. Cakes of all shapes, gelato, cookies, macaroons – all types of desserts we can think of was there and in abundant quantities. There must be a million calories of sweet things in the display case. We suggest you flip through the photos below very quickly, or you might gain weight just by looking at them.
So after all that browsing, we ended up with these three items – a profiterole ($8.50), two biscotti al pistachio ($1.90 each) and a small cup of ice cream ($6.50).
The profiterole looked amazing in the display, with the chocolate sauce solidifying over the giant cream puff. This was a substantial item, best shared by two or three people. In terms of taste, it was not as good as it looks as the cream was quite heavy. The chocolate and the pastry parts were good.
The best item was the pistachio ice-cream. This was what an Italian gelato should be – rich, flavourful and creamy. We suggest not sharing this with anyone. Tell your friends to get their own.
The biscotti was something unusual. We have not tried such a thing before and did not know what to expect. They look like soft munchy objects but were in fact hard biscuits with a sweet gel-like interior. The gel was very sweet, in fact too sweet for our liking.
All that sweet stuff is best eaten with some strong coffee. Coffee at Brunetti Tanglin Mall did not disappoint ($5.5 for black, $6.5 for cappuccino). Brunetti does also serve regular food, but we were too engrossed with the desserts to check our their menu. We do however have a picture of Brunetti Tanglin Mall’s high tea deal on weekdays.
