Marshmallow Tree, Tucked in a Quiet Sunset Neighbourhood, Telok Blangah

The Marshmallow Tree Cafe at Telok Blangah is not far away from the VivoCity Shopping Mall. It has a pretty accessible location as it is closed to the Circle Line Station and the bus stop. From either the bus stops or the MRT station to the cafe, there are covered walkways, no worries either rain or shine.

I like the idea of cafe in HDB estate, especially in the quiet mature estate.

The decor is very homely. The ceiling is painted blue with patches of clouds while the floor is laid with patches of plastic grasses. The feel is that the cafe is out in the green, next to the wood.

It has a large communal table, in the form of a log, in the centre of the cafe which can seat about fourteen guests comfortably, good for large group. On the table, there it the iconic Marshmallow Tree. There are a numbers of cushioned-chair as well giving the cafe a comfy feel.

I was looking at the cakes at the counter and spotted the lychee chocolate cake, I thought it was unique. At the same time, I wanted the chocolate caramel slice as well, a glutton displayed. The cafe served some sandwiches, quiches, cakes, muffins and macroons. Their best sellers are chocolate truffle and chocolate mint cakes.

The lychee chocolate has two distinct layers with lychee mousse on the top layer and the bottom being the chocolate truffle. I tried the lychee mousse first and felt that the lychee taste was very subtle, taste like citrus. The chocolate truffle was rich in chocolaty taste. No wonder both their best selling items were chocolate cakes. Next, I ate the lychee mousse together with the chocolate truffle. It was truly magic, the lychee taste was brought out and I could taste the fragrance of the lychee. It was an amazing combination. But somehow both the taste remained indepedently, they don’t blend together.

For the coffee, cappuccino, it is decent. It has a relatively good body. It tasted a little sour and a little bitter at the same time. The milk foam is a little cold. It would be great if they could have the foam and the coffee at the same temperature. Oh ya, and it is so thoughtful of them to accompany the coffee with a roasted marshmallow.

The food and coffee offered were decent, not great. I like especially the ambience and decor of the cafe. With the music playing in the background I felt very relaxing. In a nutshell, I like it.
