After our satisfying dinner at Huat Kee, we rounded things up by going to Max Brenners @ Esplanade for fondue. My gf’s sister had wanted to try the Chocolate Soufflé, but there weren’t any left, so we settled for 2 fondue sets to share. Fondues, as you know, are as exciting as the dip items that are served, which in this case, wasn’t really anything out of the blue.
Each fondue set came with a small saucer of melted White Chocolate, melted Milk Chocolate and melted Dark Chocolate served over a small flame to heat the liquid chocolate up. Dip items consisted of Marshmallows, Strawberries, cubes of bread and Bananas. The Dark Chocolate was nice and thick without being too sweet. The Milk Chocolate was acceptable but a little too milky for my taste. The White Chocolate was way to sweet for my taste and tasted a little creamy. The unanimous winner for the night was the Dark Chocolate, with everyone voting in favour of it.
At $20+++ for 1 fondue set (serves 2), I feel it’s quite a rip off. But I’m a sucker for chocolate, so I don’t see an end to me visiting such places, or Max Brenner for that matter – if they buck up on their slow service that is.
