Celebrated dessert restaurant reveals sleek new interior and refreshed dessert & cocktail program
December 1st, 2014
Since its opening in 2007, 2am:dessertbar in Singapore has attracted considerable local and international acclaim for the imaginative dessert creations of its founder, the renowned pastry chef Janice Wong. Showcasing her unique, cleverly conceived and skilfully executed desserts, 2am:dessertbar has enjoyed remarkable success and has set the benchmark in Singapore for innovative and engaging culinary experiences. Adjudged as “Asia’s Best Pastry Chef” in both 2013 and 2014 in the San Pellegrino’s Asia’s 50 Best Restaurant annual awards, Wong has continued to challenge culinary preconceptions with her innovative and tantalising combinations of savoury and sweet.
After a recent makeover, 2am:dessertbar has re-emerged with a sleek new interior and a refreshed and expanded menu that includes an all-day Savoury menu of small and big plate dishes, complemented by an enhanced, Japanese-inflected, cocktail program. And the further exploration of the dessert experience that has led to edible art installations at pop up events world-wide has now been incorporated into the dining experience at 2am:dessertbar. From marshmallow coated walls and chocolate painted table tops, to edible isomalt sugar “coral” decorations, diners are immersed in a uniquely intriguing experience.
Included in the expanded new menu are selections of desserts including chef Wong’s renditions of “Classics” such as the Chocolate Tart with blood orange sorbet, salty caramel. And listed under “Contemporary” desserts are popular creations from the previous menu like Red Miso Caramel – mustard crumble, miso yuzu foam, mustard yuzu meringue; plus new creations including Hojicha Sesame – Tofu parfait, hojicha custard, pear vodka sorbet. Other menu highlights include the 6 or 8 course Dessert Degustation, and a High Tea set menu for two – with optional glasses of Billecart Salmon Champagne. An enlarged selection in the Savoury menu – with selections of Small Plates and Big Plates – provide all-day nourishment and delicious accompaniment to the drinks service.
Also updated are the opening hours at 2am:dessertbar – now open between 3 pm and 2 am Tuesday to Friday, and from 11 am to 2 am on Saturday and Sunday. With limited seats at both the main bar counter facing the open kitchen, and at the high tables and new booths, evening bookings are highly recommended.
