Lazy Saturday Set Lunch @ Pamplemousse, Dempsey Hill
I was famished as this was my first meal for the day so I dug into the the warm and soft bread roll whilst waiting for our orders to be served. We had ordered the 3 course Set Lunch @ S$32++ as the description of the dishes were mouth-watering!
I love Salted Caramel and so I was absolutely thrilled when our server informed us that the Dessert of the Day was a Chocolate Banana Cake with Salted Caramel Ice Cream. Though I am generally not a fan of desserts, I was certainly eager to try the Salted Caramel Ice Cream here. It was divine especially when slathered onto the flaky, crumbly and buttery filo stick. The Chocolate Banana cake was a good mix of dark chocolate with bananas but if I had to choose one or the other, the Salted Caramel Ice Cream would be it. The Salted Caramel Ice Cream here is a Must-Try!
The set comes with Coffee or Tea. After eating so much food and drinking quite a bit of champers, I had to get a caffeine fix for a pick-me-up before my shopping expedition. I apologize for the blurred shot here. The coffee here was strong, which was just what I needed, and the Madeleine (a small sponge cake baked in a shell mould, traditionally from the Lorraine region in France) was a sweet companion for the bitter coffee.
The food at Pamplemousse is generally well-executed and though it is not particularly distinctive nor outstanding enough to create a buzz in the competitive food scene, it is honest food and worth a try. I like the attention to detail from the whipped butter, the attentive service, to the liquid hand soap from Savon de Marseille (Soap from Marseille) fragranced with Pamplemousse (grapefruit fragrance). I think C and I will be back soon to try other dishes!
