It has been years since I last visited Parkway Parade and it looks like the place has undergone some revamp with more eateries being added to the shopping mall. I have not known of the existence of Toby's The Dessert Asylum at level two until my recent visit to Parkway Parade.
From the name of the restaurant, I would have thought that this is a dessert place. You will be surprised by the huge selection of savoury and cooked food on the menu. The menu was pretty huge and I have to take sometime to decide what to order.
Spicy Hot Wings 4/5
From the starter, I had the Spicy Hot Wings ($8.95). The spicy hot wings was deep fried to a nice crispy exterior. The batter was not too thick and the wings were juicy and meaty.
Spicy Marinara Spaghetti 4/5
The Spicy Marinara Spaghetti ($17.95) topped with seafood was pretty well cooked with beautiful flavour that came with a spicy kick.
German and Cheese Bratwurst Dawg Combi 3.5/5
Served with salad and garlic rice on the side, the German and Cheese Bratwurst Cheese Dawg Combi ($16.95) was one of their house special. The sausage was huge, firm and tasty. The huge servicing portion was definitely value for money.
Garlic Pork Sandwich 4.2/5
Bean Me Up 2/5
I did not enjoy the Bean Me Up ($12.90) parfait that comes with 2 scoops of vanilla ice cream, red bean, chendol, drizzled with gula melaka and coconut cream. The combination tasted weird and I regretted ordering it.
Seek Asylum 4.8/5
The Mud Pie is a must try here. There are 8 different flavours on the menu. I tried the Seek Asylum ($15.95) which comes with macadamia ice cream, mocha, almond ice cream with cookies and Baileys Irish Cream. The Baileys Irish Cream was not too overpowering with the interesting play of bitterness complementing the sweetness of the ice cream. Coupled with the fragrant and nutty bites of surprises with each scoop of the dessert, this is one of the best mudpie I have ever tried. I definitely will be back to try the rest of the remaining seven flavours.
