Chocolate Origin opens at 313@Somerset
Café setting: There are only three products sold at this two-branch chocolate chain — Changi Village and now 313@Somerset — the original ($29–$174), dark ($36–$216) and lava cakes ($5).
What to eat: These halal-certified cakes are not sold by the slice so gather up a group of six for the smallest six-inch cake (original $29, dark $36), or 36 people for a 12-inch (original $174, dark $216). The original melts in the mouth, though is a little rich for us to handle; we stopped at one slice. While most commercial cakes have thick layers of sponge, Chocolate Origin’s stands out with a higher percentage of chocolate mousse made with Belgian dark chocolate with no extra sugar, colourings or preservatives.
The latest addition is a warm lava cake served in a cup ($5): vanilla ice cream fills the bottom half of the cup, while molten lava cake is on top. This rich and subtly sweet treat is an ingenious dessert-on-the-go — hands down one of the best desserts we’ve had in a long while.
