It was after a disappointing lunch meal for my best friend’s birthday where we decided to try out a new cafe nearby that is French inspired turns out to be no where near French. Quickly move away from the depressing meals and decided to give another try to another cafe which have quite a good feed back which 2 streets away is this Softcore Molten Cake Co which is famous for their lava cake.
Easily locate them as their signage is big enough and just right at the junction where I am coming from.
Pretty nice and simple cafe where we just love the simple interior with huge white wall and underutilized mezzanine floor. As a dessert cafe, it sure does give you nice vibe on it.
Another set which is pretty well known in their menu is their natural tea where you can choose flavors from the air vacumm jug.
Little did I know that they serve food now as we were like, we should have come here for food instead.
There was a choice of set for their Molten Cake Set @ RM 21.90 serve with their molten cake from the flavor selection and comes with a tea or coffee. Of course we will pick onto the set and not to miss out their Milkshake where recommended by many that visited here. Tried their Honey Walnut Milkshake @ RM 15. Certainly for the price that we are paying, I must say their quality and amount of ingredient the added in is pretty generous. Every single sip I can bite on the little fine blended chunks of walnut and to finish the whole thing myself with 2 desserts I am fully sugar high after that. Best to pair with their premium tea or best to share.
For coffee we chose Cold Vietnamese Coffee. Fell in love with this coffee upon first sip. Loving it with its robust flavour yet not too acidic, not only that, as I love the little burnt coffee bean aroma at the end of it. Pack with flavour and highly recommended!
Love how they presented the birthday wordings and by far its one of a better food presentation that I have come across. Loving it.
This is Dark Chocolate Molten Cake – Belgian Dark chocolate, strawberries, blueberries, homemade cherry jam and dark crumble. Love how all the elements is being combine together that create a multiple layer of flavours in it. Perfectly done with Belgian chocolate ozzing out and taste it with bitter warm end, with sourness from strawberry, mild sweet from vanilla flavour and dark crumbles pairs it well with a little sandy in your mouth. Mint taste give the final aroma of it.
Since the big hype of salted egg over bread, this chef cleverly come out with their seasonal item which is Salted Egg Yolk Molten Cake. For a start it gives us the impression will surely be weird in taste. It certainly proves us wrong where first bite will give you confusion yet the later of taste slowly evolve. Its a great combination of flavours where salted egg yolk create the creamy milky yet salty end for you, pair with their own fried honey cracker to add on the little fresh sweetness to it and vanilla ice cream to balance it out. I would advise it is best to share.
On another occasion, we came back again to try out their mains and desserts, could not share on the mains as the picture file corrupted. We had fish and chips, truffle fries (which is pretty alright) and their ribs. I would say their mains is worth value for money as the portion is huge! Would want to come back for their brunch next.
As for this round only manage to safe this 2 pictures which is their Green Tea Molten Lava cake. Nicely presented with special marinated lime at the side.
My first portion was not done right as the chef spotted it and immediately swap a new one for me. As for this round, the green tea lava indeed do ooze out and one thing I certainly love about this which is the green tea flavour had been much tone down that suits to my liking and with the whole flavour combination do take a slice of the lime to create a mild sweet juice in your mouth. Interesting combination.
Indeed its a impressive dessert and worth to give it a try.
No doubt this place is topping in my list for molten cakes and will sure back for another round for their food menu which looks pretty impressive.
I believe is pork free.
[update: 25/2/2016]: I guess their soft core quality is dropping along with their Vietnamese ice coffee. I have return many times after this blog post is up and found out that there is pretty huge inconsistency in both their mention items. I hope that they can pull back their quality up. (changed their rating from 8/10 to 6.5/10 now as the inconsistancy is pretty drastic)
