Going around on social media of the late are photos of Churros and Souffles, which are all hard-to-find desserts in Singapore. After some research, we found out that the photos come from Butterscotch, a muslim-owned cafe in Bukit Merah that replaces now-defunct Le Bon Vivant.
Mains are served here, but who could resist from the variety of desserts tbey serve here? We could not resist from Churros which we had been craving for some time. For those who prefer stiffer Churos, this is the one for you. The Churro were rather thick but crispy. Coated in cinnamon powder and sugar, it gives a sweet yet spiced flavour. A chocolate dip is also paired with the Churro, though we found the sour aftertaste not to our liking.
We also ordered a Butterscotch Souffle, and it comes coupled with Salted Caramel ice-cream and the same chocolate dip from the Churros. The souffle was jiggly and custardy as we dug our way to the bottom of the pot. As much as we did not like the chocolate dip, we did not really enjoy the Salted Caramel ice-cream as it was a wee bit too salty for us.
(Red Velvet Cake)
Initially an excitement, the Red Velvet Cake also turn into yet another disappointment. While it held up nicely, it was missing of sponginess and turned out to be pretty stiff. It is also undeniable that it is a cake, but it tasted just like any normal cake despite all the cream cheese which was bland.
I can’t remember which blends were they using, but the Flat White became rather milky at the bottom. Not my cup of coffee.
No doubt the desserts here are great, but I am a bit skeptical on their other offerings here, as well as the various items that come with the main dessert. The safest option would be to come here for Souffles or Churros instead of cakes and coffee; at least it would make the trip more worthwhile.
