Lovely place for lovely dessert

Try the baked alaska, its good. The ambience is very nice as well, secluded location and the place is cozy and relaxed.

average brunch food at rochestor park

hotos and more:  http://andmorefood.wordpress.com/2013/05/10/one-rochester-buona-vista/ 

if you’re looking for brunch options in this area – I’m going to have to point you to graze. this place was really rather meh, with uninspiring food and an ambience that made nothing of its gorgeous surroundings. if the other places around here are packed up, then perhaps you could come here – but otherwise I’m not sure there’s any point.   on hindsight (which this is, of course), there was nothing really wrong with the place so much as it was pretty boring. it isn’t very expensive, the food wasn’t bad – serviceable, really – and the place wasn’t run down. it just felt like it had so much more potential to be fantastic! but alas.   the eggs florentine came with its requisite runny yolk and sufficiently smooth hollandaise on toasted crumpets, with a side of dressed salad, and my caesar salad had romaine and a poached egg. I did like the poached egg – but I had taken up the option of chicken, and that came as minuscule pieces that did nothing for the salad.    the desserts fared a little better, with stronger flavours and more impression of skill. the soufflé was sufficiently risen but held no clear hazelnut flavour; I give them kudos for a decent chocolate ice cream though. the platter of three desserts weren’t too bad neither: the sticky date pudding was a better rendition than at jones the grocer, the praline a deep and not-too-sweet slice. I thought the pannacotta was the weakest – I can’t even remember now what it was.   that’s the problem with the meal – it was rather humdrum. I certainly didn’t dislike it – I wouldn’t raise any issue if someone suggested coming here, but I almost definitely wouldn’t be coming back on my own. not too expensive, and we were stuffed at the end of the meal – there’s conceivably a mild recommendation hiding somewhere in this if you’d like one.

Cafehoppingsg | Delicious creative desserts

Tried a Valrhona Dark Chocolate Bomb. I love the hazelnut praline in the centre but the berry sauce was too sour and overpowering for me.

I love the strawberry shortcake. Really lives up to its name as being the signature cake of 1-Caramel.

1 Caramel @ Rochester Parkhttp://alvinology.com/2011/07/17/1-caramel-rochester-park/

I am not a big dessert person, but I find myself enjoying everything I was served at 1 Caramel during a food sampling session with a group of omy.sg bloggers for their brunch and dessert selections.

Credits go to food blogger, Justin Pereira for the detailed descriptions of each of the dishes, which I got off his blog post on 1 Caramel. You can read the blog entries written by the other bloggers who attended the sampling session to get a variety of views.

We started with the Traditional Eggs Benedict with Smoke Salmon ($14). I like my egg runny and enjoys how the yolk burst into colour when one splice open the egg.

With the menu :)

Yummy Cakes!

Cakes there was awesome! Esp the chocolate hazelnut praline ($5.50) and the strawberry shortcake ($6.50). Another two ordered was the alaska cake ($14), with icecream on top and brownie below and Malteasers Cheesecake ($5.50) which tasted pretty normal.

The hazelnut praline was the bomb, i dunno what was the ingredient used. But the texture and the thick choco was *thumbs up*! Worth the $5.50!

Strawberry shortcake was gd, something less sweet and fruity to neutralize the jerlat-ness of the hazeline praline!

Ambience was nice we were seated outdoor at lvl 1 had a garden feeling, very chilling. However they were setting up tents for some events, so not gonna giv it full marks~

Service was fast, staff was friendly probably cause we were there on a weekday at ard 4pm, there were only like 2 customers? hahas We were also allowed upstairs to take a look at the display of cakes and kitchen at lvl 2.

Would def visit them again, the price of the cakes was def alright with the ambience and settings they had. But hopefully less distractions with the setting up of events next time i visit.
