A family run cafe, L'Atelier TiramiSu has opened its door at the basement of The Central @ Clarke Quay. L'Atelier TiramiSu which means the The Tiramisu workshop sells only 1 type of cakes, Tiramisu. Baked freshly daily at the cafe. L'Atelier TiramiSu is probably the only Tiramisu concept cafe in Singapore. Hidden in the basement of The Central, it easiest way is to find the cafe is to take Exit F of Clark Quay MRT station.
Don't be mislead that the cafe sells only the usual Italian dessert of caffeine, mascarpone cheese and cocoa powder. At L'Atelier TiramiSu, they have infused exquisite flavours to the classic taste of tiramisu creating a perfect blend of exquisite and traditional. Currently L'Atelier offers 4 different flavours in the Classico, Lychee, Dark Cherry and Matcha. Interestingly, L'Atelier TiramSu's tiramisu is made using the Bain-Marie method and laced with different liqueurs.
Dark Cherry Tiramisu 4/5 and Classico Tiramisu 4.2/5
The Dark Cherry Tiramisu (slice $6.80/pc, cake $48) is laced with a combination of orange liqueur and cognac. It has a strong alcohol bitterness that was nicely balanced with the sweetness of the cherry. It has a much stronger flavour compared to the other 3 tiramsu I tried. This will be well received with those that like their tiramisu to have a strong liqueur content.
If the dark cherry is the north pole, the best seller Classico (slice $6.80/pc, cake $48) will be the south pole. The classic tiramsu was light, smooth and creamy coupled with aromatic coffee soaked layers. By the way, the coffee used to make their tiramisu is from Liberty Coffee beans.
Matcha Tiramisu 4.5/5 and Lychee Tiramisu 3.8/5
Matcha Tiramisu (slice $6.80/pc, cake $48) may not be new but the version at L'Atelier TiramiSu is laced with dark rum. The sweetness of the green tea soaked biscuit together with the creamy lightness of the cake was a delightful enjoyment.
While the others enjoyed the fruity Lychee Tiramisu (slice $6.80/pc, cake $48) which is laced with Lychee liqueur and vodka, it fell just short for me. I thought the liqueur content was a tad too much. It shadowed the refreshing fruity lychee flavour I was expecting. Nevertheless, that is one of the reasons why there are different flavours to suit each individual's palate.
For those that cannot decide which flavours to go for, you may want to check out the Sampling Set ($15). The sampling set offers you a glimpse of each flavours before deciding whether to get a slice or the whole cake. Each cake measures 7 inch.
Camomile Honey 4/5
To complement with the delectable tiramisu, L'Atelier TiramiSu also offers a selection of beverage. For caffeine lovers, the cafe uses a blend from Liberty Coffee. Non-caffeine drivers can try a range of Latisaniere Teas imported from France or Arizona Teas from America. We tried the Latte ($4.50) and Camomile Honey ($3). Drinking the Camomile Honey Tea is like doing a science experiment in the lab. First you pour the tea from the 150ml beaker into the glass of ice cubes made from the tea. Then you add the syrup from the 50ml beaker to the glass.
L'Atelier TiramiSu is more of a takeaway shop with its small seating capacity of 10-12 people. If you decide to takeaway, the packaging comes with an elegant black and red box which is also appropriate as a gift.
