Loola’s by Awfully Chocolate Esplanade Singapore

Loola's Souffle

Awfully Chocolate is a familiar name for chocolate lovers. Who can resist their famous dark chocolate cake, and the signature ‘hei‘ ice cream?

When I heard from my friends that the folks at Awfully Chocolate have started a new restaurant, Loola’s by Awfully Chocolate, I was excited for two reasons. First, it is located at the beautiful Esplanade with a great view of the Marina bayfront line.

What caught my attention, though, is the array of desserts at Loola’s – with most of them not available at the regular Awfully Chocolate stores.

If you are looking for a place to satisfy your sweet tooth, Loola’s by Awfully Chocolate is worth a try.

On the dessert menu, you can find sweet temptations like chocolate mille crepe, hazel crumble, brownie, cupcake, chocolate tart, and churros. While the desserts are not exactly cheap – most of them are priced between $12-15 – I appreciate that they are well-made, and given that Loola’s has a very nice ambience, it is a price that I am willing to pay.

Besides serving desserts, Loola’s by Awfully Chocolate also has savoury food and you can get starters like capellini with truffle oil dressing ($15), crab cheese souffle ($18); main courses such as braised beef shortrib ($32), pan seared pork belly ($28), and Hoegaarden mussels ($25); as well as all day breakfast items like French toast ($18), egg benedict ($20), and egg white omelette ($22).

Brownie

I went to Loola’s twice and I had the chance to sample quite a few desserts. The Loola’s brownie ($12), a very moist and dense rendition, was one of the better brownies that I have enjoyed in recent memory.

Lemon Yogurt Cake

I am a big fan of anything-citrus, so I was happy to see the lemon yogurt cake ($12) on the menu. A generous slice of citrus infused moist cake with lemon cream cheese, and accompanied by a scoop of dark chocolate ice cream. It is an ideal afternoon cake. I’d have it with a cup of coffee.

Loola's desserts

The chocolate tart ($12) has a rich and deep chocolate filling in a nice and firm cookie base. It is further elevated by a scoop of good vanilla ice cream. You can’t really go wrong with chocolate and ice cream.

We also had a pear tart – part of the daily dessert menu (the items rotate on a regular basis) – which is decent, but nothing to write home about. Another dessert that you must try is Loola’s dark chocolate riser ($14) -  a dark chocolate souffle with vanilla bean emulsion.

I especially like the fact that Loola’s by Awfully Chocolate opens all day, and it is very quiet during non-peak hours from 3-6pm. Definitely a place to stay as long as you like, order a few slices of cake, and chat for hours with your friends.

I would probably go back for their savoury food, but if you beat me to it, do leave a comment to let me know which are some of the must-try dishes.

i was there more than a year ago n had their salted veggie duck soup and roasted chicken. both were great. the soup was unlike what we expected…it had a westernized twist. and the chicken was o so tender juicy yummy. not sure if the menu has change since though.

what’s that in the first pic?

The savoury items are pretty good as well. I would actually recommend the mushroom on toast and the souffle egg. It was a delight. However, the egg bunny is a good go to as well. :)

Tried the French toast and sausages, mushroom and tomatoes, both are good.
The bread of the French toast is soft and flurry. The eggs is creamy and the sausages are savory.
Tried the dark chocolate riser for dessert, it’s rather average in my opinion.
Will definitely patronize them again for the hoegarden mussels.

Do you have any tips on most recent places to enjoy best patisseries in Singapore? Strawberry shortcake. chinese custard tarts and black pepper crab please? Tess
