Best Molten Chocolate Lava Cakes in Singapore


I always thought our first post should be about chocolate lava cakes – food that really knows how to comfort our soul, we have been having at least one every month. In the past 11 months or so, we found 4 that we truly like. Today, we finally found our 5th favourite lava cake, making our Top 5 list complete! 🙂

In (almost) no particular order:

1. Brill Cafe

We have been in two minds about sharing this hidden gem with the rest of the world. A cafe with a relaxed, homely feel, it serves as a a quiet respite away from the bustling crowd at Orchard. The chocolate lava cake is heart-warming and very decently priced too.  (Only 1 out of about 10 times, we were disappointed as the chocolate wasn’t quite molten lava – We brought this to the attention of the service staff who promptly offered a second serving, which was done just right!)

2. Steakout

Tucked at a corner of old-school Victoria Hotel, Steakout serves a good hearty plate of steak and chicken (with baked potatoes and onion rings and other good things..) – Best eaten hot! What we didn’t expect was how good the chocolate lava cake was! We were told that it was because of the 60 percent cocoa. Did we mention its decently priced too?

3. Five & Dime

Everything tastes good with salted egg yolk – its like a cheaper alternative to truffle. So how can we resist Five & Dime’s salted egg yolk chocolate lava cake? Yes, that’s the picture you see up there. A place that needs no introduction – we suggest you call to book a table. (Adopting gaming terms, we say salted egg yolk is a cheat code – so maybe that’s why we’re sub-consciously only listing it as number 3.) .

4. Arteastiq Boutique Tea House

Yes, this is the place at Mandarin Gallery, which allows us (who are not so artistically-gifted) to do a little bit of art jamming. The chocolate lava cake was surprisingly good and had (what we think is) molten green tea chocolate! The menu strangely did not mention that it would have green tea – Hope it wasn’t a mistake 🙂

  1. Congrats on the birth of this blog! I really enjoy the post about choc lava cake! It is well written and the picture makes it even more tempting. I say that most cakes are so deceitfully made – that it justifies any amount of calories a girl may put on! I have not been to any of cafés suggested – so it’s something that I need to try when I get back! 😜🙊

    Please keep the posts coming! I’ll be on the look out! 😉
