Then, I spotted The M Plot, which on first glance may not give you an indication what they are actually selling.
They actually serve up Macarons, and offer many types with creative flavours.
The unique flavour selection is inspired by Asian food cultures, and you can find anything from Salted Egg Yolk x Curry, Thai Tea, Purple Yam, to Lychee x White Chocolate.
By adding say a hint of curry leaf into the classic sweet dessert, they hope that customers can have a surprising outcome. As though there is some roller coaster in your mouth.
Also available are cakes such as Chocolate Mango Mousse Cake ($8), and Grapefruit x Cheese Tart ($8).
I was curious about their “Big Macaron” ($8.50), which comes in flavours of Raspberry Rose Lychee
Rose, Chocolate Hazelnut Praline, and Black Forest.
The Black Forest turned out to be quite delightful, of 60% dark chocolate based, with a layer of premium Madagascar vanilla beans ganache, topped up with sour cherries and finished with classic chocolate flakes.
There were components of both desserts in one. You get the crispiness on the outside like a macaron, and chocolate-cherry touch of the black forest.
The ordering area is downstairs, while dining area is upstairs. While the space may seem small, it is cozy enough with pop culture artworks around to add some character.
