Go for the dessert - mudpie

From the name of the restaurant, I would have thought that this is a dessert place. You will be surprised by the huge selection of savoury and cooked food on the menu. The menu was pretty huge and I have to take sometime to decide what to order.

From the starter, I had the Spicy Hot Wings ($8.95). The spicy hot wings was deep fried to a nice crispy exterior. The batter was not too thick and the wings were juicy and meaty.

The Spicy Marinara Spaghetti ($17.95) topped with seafood was pretty well cooked with beautiful flavour that came with a spicy kick.

The interesting orange colour bread was slightly toasted, crusty on the outside and soft inside. Stuffed with delish garlic mayo, pork lettuce, tomato, onions and cheese, the Garlic Pork Sandwich can be a bit messy to handle but it was a very delicious sandwich.

The Mud Pie is a must try here. There are 8 different flavours on the menu. I tried the Seek Asylum ($15.95) which comes with macadamia ice cream, mocha, almond ice cream with cookies and Baileys Irish Cream. The Baileys Irish Cream was not too overpowering with the interesting play of bitterness complementing the sweetness of the ice cream. Coupled with the fragrant and nutty bites of surprises with each scoop of the dessert, this is one of the best mudpie I have ever tried. I definitely will be back to try the rest of the remaining seven flavours.

Good Place for Dessert

My friend was invited for a food tasting session and I just shamelessly tagged along :)  They called themselves 'The Dessert Asylum", and they are indeed good for their desserts.

We ordered two desserts, one is Spike D, which is Durian cake; the other is To-By or Not To-by, which is ice cream with rum and raisin, etc. 

The Durian cake has a very plain look, like a Chinese man-tou covered with chocolate creams, but then the first bite already captured my heart.  The fresh durian flavour filled my taste buds and it lingered around.  It had the smooth texture.  

To-By or Not To-by has a very philiosophical name, and it gave you a punch!  The Irish cream that they use would make your taste buds wake up!

I recommend you have the Durian cake first, then the rum & raisin ice cream.  If you reverse the order, both will become tasteless and the great sensation is gone.

Located at one of the most popular malls in the East, Parkway Parade, Toby's The Dessert Asylum is a one size fits all eatery. Together with it's laid back, vibrant and playful vibe, Toby's do offers a large array of Starters, Mains  and Desserts. During my trip here, we ordered Toby's Deluxe Burger ($16.5), Baby Back Ribs ($19.95) and Chicken Thigh ($15.95). No doubt food served were of quality, however, I find the price a little steep! Thankfully, I had vouchers to offset my bill! On the other hand, Toby's do offer set lunch too!

What to Eat
Bingsu ice shavings, sweet rice cakes and toasts invade the cafes here. Not typically offered in traditional Korean meals, desserts are served only during special occasions as refreshments, but in Singapore, the tables are turned
