Dome Bakery serves up ‘Fudging Good Brownie’ with the lava fillings and other baked goods such as lava muffins, pound cakes, and cookies.

“It’s a good location”, the owner CH told me as I was leaning over the counter to make my order.

I looked down the South Bridge Road stretch and it seemed to make sense.

With the close vicinity of the Chinatown and Tanjong Pagar, it was the chosen place for this once-a-home-based-business bakery to have started their first brick-and-mortar shop.

Other new cafes in the hood include Rough Guys Coffee, September Coffee and afterwords Café.

Patrons may take away their sweet treats of choice, or choose to sit at the small dine-in area of tall chairs and counters which can fit four people.

With limited dining space, I would personally have considered bringing the baked goods, all in takeaway style packaging, to the nearby parks (if the Singapore weather allows).

Their ‘Fudging Good Brownie’ menu features a good mix of molten goods.

This includes the Smoked Sea Salt Brownie ($6), Cookies & Cream Brownie ($6), Peanut Butter Pecan Brownie ($6), Dark Chocolate Brownie ($6), Raspberry Chocolate Brownie ($6.50), Biscoff Cookie Brownie ($6.50), and Matcha Macadamia Brownie ($6.50).

You can buy six for $33 too.

Before I took a bite of the Smoked Sea Salt Brownie ($6 per piece, $33 for six), cutting into the inner molten chocolate was a spectacle in itself.

The brownie parts were dense, gooey and moist, what I would dream of a brownie to be, while the sauce it contained was a chocolate sauce which was not too sweet.

I could taste much of the smoked sea salt flavour throughout the item, which contributed to a very salty-sweet contrast.

The Raspberry Chocolate Brownie ($6.50 per piece, $33 for six) was a surprise as well. Not one for berry cakes, I found this to be well-calculated in flavour.

Besides having a bright pink streak of molten ruby Belgian chocolate which was sour, there was a play with the balancing of sourness from the raspberry sauce and the molten chocolate lava sauce.

It wasn’t overly sour, nor artificial as raspberry items somehow go.

Take a look at the nice packaging too with Domey (their mascot on the logo) who turns up in different outfits on their social media during the festive season.

Other offerings include Dark Chocolate Muffins ($6 per piece, $18 for four), Black Sesame Streusel Pound Cake ($3.80 per piece, $28 per loaf) and Butter Cookies ($12.50 per packet, $22 per two packets).

Another item possibly worth trying was the Dark Chocolate Muffins ($6 per piece, $18 for four) which was moist, cakey in its muffin part, and its gooey centre oozed chocolate sauce.

The combination was decadent and not too heavy.

Their coffee comes in Black ($4), White ($5), Chocolate (Mocha) ($6) and Dirty Matcha ($6.50).

Non coffee drinks include Matcha Latte ($6), Chocolate ($5.50) and Premium Teas ($4 for a cup) in English Breakfast, Chamomile, Green Tea, Peppermint Tea and other seasonal teas.

Dome Bakery’s Iced White ($6) was intriguing as their coffee has plum, chocolate and milk tea notes, with rich flavour to break through the milk used.

You can have your coffee and some non-coffee drinks iced (add $1), with an extra shot of coffee (add $1) and with oat milk (add $1).

I walked away hoping to come back soon for their decadent, crafted baked goods, well-balanced in flavour.

Dome Bakery is a spot for a post-lunch dessert on a work weekday, or a weekday drop-in as it closes at 6pm.
