Do a quick Google search on chocolates and you will probably find Wimbly Lu either on that list or topping it. Known for their array of chocolate desserts, ice cream and waffles, Wimbly Lu first started off in a quaint neighbourhood of Jalan Riang and now has 2 other outlets in the heartlands of Singapore.
Located just a few doors away from Chye Seng Huat Hardware Coffee, the outlet at Tyrwhitt Road is definitely more accessible as compared to the one at Jalan Riang and the café boasts a cosy decorum that has been remodelled from an old shophouse.
We headed down on a rainy Friday afternoon to seek refuge from the rain as well as to indulge in some sweet treats, to which we were not disappointed.
Once we stepped into the café, our eyes were immediately fixated on the display of lovely chocolates and cakes, which definitely got us drooling then.
Retro lamps, mirrors, and dim lightings lend a casual yet modern charm to the place and we couldn’t wait to try the beautiful desserts that they have.
We got ourselves 2 desserts to share and the first that came up was the Jey’s Nutella Pie (S$6++). Filled with a silky smooth Nutella spread across a soft hazelnut crust, this wonderful dessert slides easily down your fork and every bite you take bursts with rich and creamy Nutella goodness that simply melts in your mouth.
Next came Clare’s Sticky Date Pudding (S$5++), which is essentially a moist sponge cake made with finely chopped dates drenched in a sweet toffee sauce and served warm.
A bite into the soft sponge cake filled with toffee sauce makes you feel as if there is a marriage of flavours happening in your mouth–the sweet toffee sauce complemented the fluffy sponge cake without being too overly decadent.
