S$4 Molten Chocolate Cake
This is from a while back. Right after our feast of Istimewa Nasi Padang, my friends told me of a cheap but good molten chocolate cake just around the corner.
Turns out it's from Cilantro's Bukit Merah stall, which seemed to be enjoying brisk business from the lunch crowd. Here's one table that seems to be sampling one of each of their desserts.
The chocolate cake takes a while to be prepared. Portion is dainty and comes sprinkled with chopped pistachios and icing sugar. I felt the exterior was a bit dry and I would have preferred more molten chocolate oozing out. Yes, one can't expect much for the S$4 (US$2.80) price, but at a coffeeshop, S$4 can also buy you a full meal. It also seems that quality can be erratic according to my friends who eat here regularly. But in general they find it still good. Kudos to Cilantro for trying to bring higher end items to the heartland.
