Dinner at Au Chocolat at MBS

Met up with some friends to see the iLight Festival at Marina Bay. We had dinner at MBS first before checking out the various outdoor Light Art installations. We're back at Au Chocolat as they have a revamped menu.

Two of us ordered new items from the menu while one decided to have her fave dish again. As usual we ordered sides to share.

Truffle fries $15++, one of our fave dishes from Au Chocolat, was drizzled with generous amount of truffle oil and served piping hot...delish!

I wasn't extremely hungry and decided to just have sandwich and picked the new Pulled pork sandwich $20++. To my dismay, the serving turned out to be huge!

I got a foot-long toasted bread with pretty well marinated pulled pork meat, topped with coleslaw. Taste pretty good but portion was just too big...I was unable to finish it!

Homemade garlic herb pesto pasta with prawns $25++, another new item in the menu. My friend picked the Bow Tie pasta over the other choices of linguine and penne.

The dish came with 8 huge pieces of succulent whole prawns. The pesto sauce was pretty tasty and bow ties were done al dente, my friend was happy with her pick.

Boeuf bourguignon $28++, my friend's fave dish. The chunky slow cooked beef cheeks were very tender and well flavored. Serving was generous as usual.

As we were quite full from having the main courses, we decided to just order one dessert to share for 3pax.

Nutty crunchy French toast $20++, we chose a really sinful one from the Toasts & Pancakes section. We got two thick slices of french toast bread coated with crispy cornflakes, topped with choco hazelnut cream, sweet banana slices, choco fudge sauce and sprinkled with choco pearls.

The cornflakes coated bread was very well executed, with crispy flaky exterior and soft and warm center. The hazelnut cream was yummy and pairs well with the sweet banana. This dessert dish was nice but a tad too sweet for our liking.

As the restaurant has stopped serving complimentary ice water (2 months ago), we ordered several drinks to wash down our hearty meal.

My fave was the Sprite float w/ strawberry gelato $10++, the strawberry gelato contains bits of real strawberry in it, very nice!

I think we overspent on beverages!
