Choc a Bloc, Singapore

Choc a bloc has been around for some time and gives the more established places such as Lana and Awfully Chocolate a run for their money.

As you can spy from that little circular perforation which previously held a candle, this was a actually a birthday cake for a friend who prefers dark chocolate. As such, I opted for the Americano Choco Truffle at 35SGD.

This stuff is rich, very rich. Do not expect a wimpy fluffy sponge cake with a cheap excuse of a chocolate fudge on this. This tasted like a rich, thick mud cake. The sort of thickness that would give your knife some resistance. We ate this cold from the fridge but I think it would have tasted better if slightly heated for the fudge to melt and go abit softer. A heated slice with some citrus sorbet by the side maybe?

The main branch at Bedok only sells whole cakes but if you're in the mood for just a slice, you can get them with beverages at their "Milk Bar" outlet at Cuppage Terrace. It's best that you have a few people to help you finish a whole cake because as tasty as it sounds, it does get you stuffed pretty quick.

angie: I'm really a big fan of old school stuff and have been patronizing lana's since I was a kid but to be honest, I'll have to say this beats lana's. Bearing in mind this is really thick and rich unlike the fluffy sponge cake and jelly-like fudge you get at lana's. To each their own I guess.

Freezy: Try it for yourself and you'll know haha.

I've been to the Milk bar before to find it close at around 7pm. Any idea what are its opening hours? Have u tried their mom's fudge cake? I heard its their best

shionge: The cake is worth it. After all why waste all that exercise? Haha.

YD: They do close pretty early, definitely not an after-dinner joint. Best to check out their website on the exact hours. Mum's fudge cake is good too, it's a lighter cake overall.

Zhengning: It tastes as good as it looks but just be warned, the Americano is VERY rich.
