Tiramisu should not be their core item

Having been to The Tiramisu Hero for brunch once, I decided to give it another go today, since *Charmaine picked it anyway (out of all the cafes here in Lavender area). It was still every bit as pretty, and there are still these adorable accessories for sale.

We were very full from our lunch, but girls being girls - merely ordering just a pot of hot tea just wasn't enough (initially that was our agreement - just a tea or coffee). *Charmaine had the Tiramisu (SGD$7.50) in a jar, original flavor. She commented that it tasted merely like "chocolate and cream" at first bite, but then commented that the flavor grew on her as she continued to progress through her dessert.

I decided to go for the Tiramisu (SGD$7.50) in a jar - the strawberry flavor. As usual, there was no detected coffee aroma, just sweet cream and strawberries (I felt like I was eating S&C literally), though the texture was light and fluffy, lovely in its own right. I just wouldnt consider this a tiramisu place.

They also have these amazing pre-mix Hot Chocolate with Marshmallows (SGD$4.80) goodies for takeaways - all one needs to do is to add hot water or milk to enjoy a delicious cup of hot chocolate. *Charmaine bought a couple to try - I shall ask for her review soon.

not that good

I guess I had high expectations for the tiramisu here, since it's touted as their specialty. The choices are limited and the taste isn't outstanding. I'm enthusiastic about tiramisu and I try it at different places whenever I can, but this one falls short. Nice ambience though.

Perfect Tiramisu-s for beginners!

Just went to get the tiramisu-s from this raved place and was kind of a dissapointment... :< Been really hyped up for their tiramisu-s since they are so highly raved but to my dissapointment, they fell short of my expectation. :/ Overall it was good in the way that it is easy on the palette for beginners in trying out coffee desserts. But for advanced or people that prefers heavier, stronger coffee flavour in their desserts, I would recommand them to customise?

Review;

The Original:

Coffee Flavour: 1.5/5; perfect for beginners

Moist-ness: 4/5; just soaked enough for the coffee to flow out as you bite into it

Sweetness: 4/5; lovely amount of sweetness in every bite 

Alcohol: 1/5; could barely tell that it existed in the dessert :x

Overall: Perfect for beginners

~~

The Matcha:

Matcha Flavour: 4.4/5; a close 5, minus 0.5 cuz' the matcha mascapone was quite little :(

Moist-ness: 5/5; perfect soaked fingers that complimented the entire jar

Sweetness: 5/5; kids would down it so quickly

Alcohol: -Not Applicable-

Overall: Perfect if you want to share with little kids! 

~~

Didn't managed to stay for the dine in cuz' it was so crowded [it was a Sunday afternnoon, wrong timing xD]

Staff was really friendly and the ambience was great, would love to go back to really try out their food and other flavoured tiramisu sometime. Would most definately give the customised version a try since it allows me to give more flavour to my tiramisu! 

Though the tiramisu wasn't bad, I would most definately say that it isn't that value for money considering it's small portion. Nevertheless, I enjoyed my jars just the same! :)
P.s. The jars are really cute!

chefchef curry baked rice and tiramisu

Finally get to try out The Tiramisu Hero Cafe. It is situated somewhere behind the lavender area along a row of shop houses. A very cosy cafe with modernized look. Look at those green carpets that welcomed us! The interior has prints of their signature cat comic all over the ceilings or on the high walls. They have a corner selling some exquisite accessories.

decent choice of food, might not have too many choices within one category but they do have quite a variety of food choice from pasta, pizza to baked rice etc. Can take a look at http://thetiramisuhero.com/cafe-menu-2/ for the complete menu. Top up i think around $5 to complete your meal with soup + garlic bread, iced lemon tea and a dessert. The mushroom soup is creamy with bits of mushrooms. Garlic bread is well toasted, crispy and aromatic. But edges of the garlic toast may be a lil hard.

and the two mains we ordered were – AGLIO OLIO ($14,90) and CHEFCHEF CURRY BAKED RICE ($12.50), top up $2 if you want cheese to be added.

Aglio Olio: The pasta is a quite dry and overall the dish is a lil oil, probably due to the bacon also. Prawns were succulent nevertheless. I’ll find this dish quite average.

Chefchef Curry Baked Rice: Rice baked in chicken curry. To my surprise this dish is actually quite nice! Its a lil combination of japanese and indian curry cause when you eat you have the feel of eating japanese curry but as you know jap curry aint spicy, but this its a lil spicy as if spices were added. Also, it’s topped with chunky potatoes and tender chicken pieces! Yums.

Desert from the set was brownie top with icing sugar and drizzled with chocolate sauce. Very chocolatey. We also ordered one of their Chocolate tiramisu to try.

Chocolate Mommahero ($7.50): Feels very different, first time eating tiramisu without espresso and alcohol. It feels as in i’m eating chocolate cream puffs! Guess it’s just so so for me.

But overall, staffs were friendly and service was good.

Tiramisu Cuteness

A really quiet place that specializes in tiramisu.
We decided to try the original & matcha tiramisu. In the mommahero portions which came in cute jars. I have to say that the presentation of the tiramisu is adorable. 
The matcha tiramisu taste better than the original tiramisu. The cream was fluffy and nice. It was just the right consistency. We finished the matcha tiramisu easily while we could not finish the original tiramisu. We found the original tiramisu too coffee-y. Maybe true tiramisu lovers will enjoy it but not use.
