Caramel Cafe-> Tom's Palette

Caramel Cafe
100 Beach Road
#01-50/52 Shaw Towers
note: Close on Sundays.

Banana Chocolate cake with scoop of Vanilla Ice-cream
- Choc & Banana is 1 of the great combination of flavours that the market is introducing and growing big on. The Banana Choc cake over here is done very well.
With the cake being moist and the banana melts in your mouth but not being too heavy or wet on the cake. Vanilla ice-cream gives a temporary wipe from the boastful flavour and creating a desire and lust for that sinful choc

Strawberry Shortcake
- not a fan of it. Gives discredit to strawberry shortcakes.
nothing commendable about this. In fact, it is a waste of bucks for anyone purchasing it.

Dark chocolate with Himalayan Pink Salt
- This gets the thumbs up and Yumz from me. Interesting is the word that rings in my mind. Savoury follows suit on the next thought of it.
Yet another great combination out in the market of combining chocolate with salt.
But they do it well over here, im normally not a fan of Sweet+Salted taste in 1, however this gets the green light from me. It may be the salt they use. Unlike seasalt, this has a subtle tinge of saltiness and is really fine in texture. It rolls the flavour of tinge saltiness and bittersweet chocolate into 1. Nice!

Cream Cheese Carrot Cake
- Carrot cakes are my number 1 love for cakes. I would Not say the 1 here is Ubber Fantastic, but it is good enough to meet my expectations.

What better place to jump into a Whimsical land with the company of Sweets for my tooth?
Great place to hang out for a Lazy afternoon and chat with friends.

not recommended for a huge group though as seats are limited.
But a 4 man gang will fit in snugly.

next stop:
Tom's Palette
100 Beach Road
#01-25 Shaw Leisure Gallery

Their Apple Pie is a Must-try. If you love Cinnamon, this will have you licking the paper cup clean. However, if you run away fro mthe mention of Cinnamon, than you should run away from this too.

Also tried their Rum & Raisin and Horlicks.
The Rum & Raisin is ok, but gets gelad. I stopped at the 6th spoonful of it.
The Horlicks is terrible for me, it has a taste similar to coconut and I am an enemy to Coconut. I stopped at the 3rd spoonful of it.

I will not recommend people to specially go down to Shaw Towers to try out Tom's Palette, but if you happen to pass by, U Can consider trying their Apple Pie or taste test the other flavours which I have yet to try.

Perhaps it could also be Udders, Island Creamery and Ice-Kimo that has pulled my standards up for ice-creams
