Sinfully Good

3 Inch Sin is a chocolate dessert cafe that specialises in, as the name of the store suggests, 3 inch sized molten chocolate cakes. And believe me nothing is sexier than pure decadent chocolate oozing out of the 3 inch Original Molten Cake which we ordered. At $6.50 per ramekin, this warm chocolate cake was simply heaven on earth. Choosing to pay an additional $3.50 for a scoop of Sea Salt & Caramel ice-cream was the best decision we made on our part. Simply lush.

The menu also offers other flavours of molten lava cakes which makes this place so unique- lemon, hazelnut, bitter orange and mint just to name a few.

This brownie certainly brought us to Cloud 9 at a bargain of $4.50. Made with the finest dark chocolate and freshly roasted nuts, it has been a while since I have enjoyed such a moist and fudgey brownie.

The Dark Side at $6 was a sweet pastry tart filled with dark, velvety chocolate ganache. Smooth and creamy, each mouthful was delightful and rich. Loved the balance of the dark chocolate against the sweetest of the pastry base.

If you do not want an overload of chocolate then Lost In The Blackforest  may just be your thing. Dark chocolate mousse with kirsch soaked cherries and a generous topping of chocolate shavings on, blackforest cakes were never this alluring and tempting. Priced at $7.50, this 3 tiered chocolate sponge cake is a gem.

3 Inch Sin has definitely won my vote in satisfying my sweet tooth. With their affordable prices and relatively wide variety of chocolate cakes, this unassuming dessert cafe certainly gives many higher end dessert boutiques a run for their money. I do hope that 3 Inch Sin is here to stay.

Chocolatey Goodness!

For the full review, please visit The Cinnamon Sheep (:

Located in an isolated corner on the second floor of Cluny Court is a rather tiny café which has become a household name as it is known for having one of the best Chocolate Lava Cakes in town.

Oscar Wilde once said, “I can resist anything except temptation.” Such an appropriate quote for the decadence and indulgence which awaits ahead. Stepping into 3 Inch Sin is like stepping into dreamland as you take a long sniff of the distinct and unmistakable aroma of warm chocolate wafting through the air. This smell, is the smell that no one can resist – the smell of rich chocolate decadence – simply irresistible and tempting.3 Inch Sin does not have much desserts/cakes to offer unlike many other dessert-oriented places and that’s what makes them different and all the more better ( in our opinion) because they specialize in freshly-baked warm Chocolate Cakes with different playful and unique fillings. Warm Chocolate Lava Cakes are what they’re known for. It’s their specialty, and they do it the best.The Warm Chocolate Cakes are served in 2 sizes – the standard 3-inch (and hence their name) for $6 (+$3 for a scoop of Ice Cream) and 3 mini ones for $5. The flavors offered for the mini Warm Chocolate Cakes are: Original, Mint, Bitter Orange, Coffee, Hazelnut, Raspberry, Peanut Butter, White Chocolate, Lemon, Baileys and Cherries Jubilee.

Wanting to try a range of their flavors, we went for the Mini Molten Flavors and opted for theOriginal, Peanut Butter and Raspberry. It was a long 20 minutes wait full of anticipation and excitement but it was all worth it as the aroma of the freshly-baked warm Chocolate Cake was like a punch in the face when it finally arrived.A nice crisp chocolate exterior coupled with warm molten interior bursting with flavor and utter goodness was simply heaven. While some had reviewed and said that the Mini Cakes lacked/had too little molten gooeyness in the center as the cake is too small, we beg to differ as all of ours had an incredibly rich molten center that oozed out once we cut into the cake.

Among the 3 flavours that we sampled, the Raspberry Molten Chocolate Cake was the least preferred as we felt that the tart berry flavor together with the rich chocolate flavor was just a rather odd combination.

The Original Chocolate Cake was simply perfect and cannot be described as our mouths were too full of chocolate to say anything other than MMMMMMMMMMM. It was all about the rich intense chocolate flavor bursting in your mouth, and more chocolate, and even more chocolate than you can ever imagine. Period.

The next favourite was the Peanut Butter Molten Chocolate Cake.

The Original Chocolate Cake was hands down perfect and beyond description. It was all about the rich intense chocolate flavor bursting in your mouth, and more chocolate, and even more chocolate than you can ever imagine. Period.

Following the best was the Peanut Butter Molten Chocolate Cake. Elisa has never been a big fan of Peanut Butter but this was a wicked combination which will give anyone on this planet a sense of utter satisfaction which hits you right inside. The thick gooey Peanut Butter was in no way overpowering, but instead it gave the entire cake a whole new dimension.

In our opinion, Chocolate Lava Cakes have withstood the test of time. They used to be the craze a couple of years ago and we would think that every place which had the Chocolate Lava Cake on their menu was simply the best, regardless of how their other foods taste like. But now, almost every restaurant have them on their menu. Nevertheless, people still order a simple Warm Chocolate Lava Cake as it is clearly and definitely a perfect option for pure indulgence.

3 Inch Sin is no doubt a hidden fine. If you’re a crazy chocolate lover like us, here’s your place. Prices are more than reasonable and service was great. More cake varieties are served over the weekend so we’ll definitely be back soon!

One of the Best Chocolate Fondant's in town





3 Inch Sin  specializes in freshly-baked warm chocolate cakes with surprising, playful fillings like orange, coffee and mint. Located in a secluded corner of Cluny Court with locals only acknowledging the sheer presence of Relish and Simply Bread, 3 Inch Sin could be certainly described as a hidden find. Not feeling very satisfied from my dinner at La Petit Cuisine, I headed to Cluny Court to satisfy my craving for Chocolate Fondant. I had initially wanted to sample the three mini molten lava cakes but the menu there had been revamped to the extent that solely three inch lava cakes would be sold. After much pondering I opted for the Original ($6.50) with an additional scoop of Vanilla Ice Cream ($3.50)

When the lava cake arrived, the aromatic flavor of the freshly baked fondant was simply irresistible as i excitedly plunged into it. The exterior of the fondant had a nice crisp and crunch to it while the fluffy and moist interior was bursting with chocolate goodness. The warm molten chocolate lava being rich and flavorful was extremely pleasant on the palate and complemented by the homemade vanilla ice cream which was passable.

With more than its reasonable prices also with its excellent chocolate fondant, it is no wonder why 3 Inch Sin has become a household name in having one of the Best Lava Cakes in town, and I sure can't help but agree. Compared to the one I had at Max Brenner along with the price factor, a return to 3 Inch Sin is definite.
