Much like its name, The Dark Gallery shines a spotlight on dark chocolate featuring a range from bonbons and chocolate drinks to ice cream and mousses.
Meet one of Millennia Walk’s newest tenants, The Dark Gallery (TDG). Opened since early July, this quaint dessert café sits in the middle of the ground floor, amidst the hustle and bustle. Designed in an open concept, TDG is great to rest your feet with a cuppa or just for people-watching. Gather your friends and family as you get down and dirty with all things dark chocolate.
One of their signature drinks, TDG’s chocolate cube hazelnut latte ($9) comes as a set of frozen chocolate cubes, steamed milk and a portion of fragrant hazelnut espresso. Assemble it yourself and watch as the chocolate cube melt to give all chocoholics a little taste of heaven—that is to say, chocolate heaven.
For the diehard chocolate lovers, go for The Chocolate Rhapsody ($18), which comes with three scoops—one each of TDG’s signature dark (80 per cent), milk (36 per cent) and white (32 per cent) chocolate ice cream. If that’s not indulgent enough, it comes on a bed of crunchy chocolate ‘soil’, velvety chocolate smooth, crispy chocolate meringues and a cacao tuile.
Or get the Frozen S’more ($7.50), which is a large block of 80 per cent dark chocolate ice cream coated with graham cracker crumbs and then encased in a thick layer of homemade marshmallow. Torched tableside, this gooey delight is a must, to satisfy the chocoholic in you. Plus, it makes for a good photo.
If you’re spoilt for choice—like us, we recommend The Single Origin Chocolate Pastries Platter ($12). Try a variety of intensities as each pastry in the platter is made using a different dark chocolate. Expect two bite-sized 64 per cent Madagascan chocolate macarons; a chocolate ganache tartlet made using 66 per cent Ecuadorian chocolate; 70 per cent dark chocolate from the Dominican Republic used in the homemade s’more; and a trifle with a dark chocolate mousse made from 72 per cent Venezuelan dark chocolate.
