Food: 2AM Dessert Bar

Given the chance to treat yourself something, and if ever you're craving for "fine dining" desserts I have a place to recommend guys! Located along the street of Holland Village, 2AM Dessert Bar which opened again in 2007 is the best place for late night dessert treat. 

I love their interiors that looks so sophiticated and high class ambience but still comfortable to dine in. You can select whether you want to sit on the glass window area with tables or can even have a spot near the bar to watch how your dessert is being done. 

We ordered a bottle of wine Moscato D'Asti while browsing on the best dessert on the menu to try. The menu is categorized under Classic or Contemporary Dessert. Special part of it was the add on menu options like Dessert Degustation, Ice Cream, Sweet Waffle and Savoury Dessert. Life gets harder when it comes to choosing the best one ;)
