What I liked about the Le Petit Souffle menu was that it was brimming and skipping with cats.
How do you like it meow?
Admittedly out first visit to Le Petit Souffle (Century City Mall) was redeemed only by the catty menu.
It warranted a second visit because the parfait was not available (tsk, tsk) and it was my priority over the souffle. Hence, we had no choice but to settle with the (slightly delayed) souffle par-tay.
The Valrhona Guanaja Souffle (adorned by my cats), sank after a few minutes of photo ops. I never had the chance to dig in to its full-bodied souffle grandeur. It tasted like the lighter sister of the angry lava cake.
The Matcha Valrhona Ivoire Souffle came heaps of minutes later. Either they whipped up a second batch or forgot all about our green order.
We were not much of a fan of the Frozen Souffle (Souffle Glace). The citrus hints just overpowered the Vanilla Bean, and the flowers did not help calm the raging palate.
Luckily, visit #2 gave us a chance to sample the savory treats.
My heart goes to the Vegetarian Soba Pasta which was the opposite of the overpowering vanilla bean-citron souffle. It was light yet hearty and still paved the way for dessert. And look at the mushrooms! Love it!
The Squid Ink Rice was a carby feast for anyone who wanted an adequate balance of rice, seafood and egg. It was too filling for one, and a pleasant to-share dish since sharing the black teeth makes lunch even more spectacular. =P
Last but certainly not the least, finally, the Matcha Parfait makes it appearance after lunch!
This is what matcha desserts ought to be made of! Perfectly creamy yet matcha-filled, this one was worth the wait. Those Pepero sticks were an added bonus too!
A bit on the pricey side, but this little cup is sure to make the trip to Le Petit Souffle worth the traffic, the wait and the 2nd chance.
