Holland Village is known as a cluster of restaurants which has a mix of different cuisines. The newest addition to the area is MU Parlour – a cafe serving desserts, burgers, and cocktails. Prices range from $4 to $6.50 for a dessert, while you can get their ‘gourmet’ burgers for $13 to $16.
It is easy to miss MU Parlour if you are not paying special attention to the shops on the second level. It’s the kind of place that is introduced through friends’ recommendations. And this is exactly how we came to know about it.
MU Parlour has a very pretty and cosy space. We fell in love with it the moment we stepped in. It is the perfect place to hang out, read a book, and watch the world go by.
As usual, we had a hard time trying to decide on what to order as everything was very appealing. In the end, we chose to share a cheesecake, a mint chocolate cake and a lemon tart.
One of the first things that caught my attention was that the passionfruit cheesecake ($6) does not have a crust base. I do not know about you, but for me, a cheesecake is not really a cheesecake without crust. That being said, we enjoyed MU Parlour’s version as it was very pleasant. The cheesecake was compact, smooth, and not too sweet. I would order it again when I go back.
We were hesitant to get the tarts because we saw that the filling was separated from the tart base. But being a fan of lemon meringue tart ($4), I decided to get it anyway. True enough, it was run-of-the-mill, and we did not finish it.
We also tried the mint chocolate cake ($6.50) – a very dense chocolate dessert which has more ganache than cake. I love the praline base, as well as the combination of chocolate and mint.
Besides the ones that we had, MU Parlour also has other desserts like blackcurrant chocolate cake ($6), coffee chocolate mousse ($6.50), and black forest cake ($6).
For those of you who frequent Holland Village, you should definitely drop by MU Parlour for desserts and coffee. Remember to say hello if you see me there.
