Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Lunch at Lotus

Ello everyone! I had a massive sugar overdose at Lotus on 2 April cause it was the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Lunch by Dan Hong!

I thought it would be savoury dishes with 'wacky sweet elements' but nooooooo~~~its sugar all the way! WHOOH!

The place was decorated with colourful candy, pretty flowers and crazy liquid bubbling away like it was in a mad scientist's lab.

Quirky science meets candy<3

Oh how much I drooled over the menu...

'Russian Spyder'

Coke spyder with Vodka and Kahlua hehe. The wimps (and kiddos) went for the lemonade with icecream option.

Blueberry Inspired by Violet Beauregarde

Our eyes could not peel off the bubbling apple consomme with dry ice. Such awesomeness! It was then gently poured around our blueberry sorbet.

Ohhhhhh~look at the blue colour leaking off into the consomme.  After a while, the whole puddle was blue. It also dyed our tongue, teeth and mouth blue.  Soon, the entire restaurant are all laughing at each other and being the cam whore that I am, took snaps of myself.

Blue Tongue!

Ice Cream Sandwich

This is not your ordinary ice cream sandwich. Yummy chocolate brownies sandwiched two fat scoops of peach ice cream and a layer of fresh strawberries. To make that even more awesome, it was then sprinkled with pretty pink tart strawberry powder. 

'Golden Eggs'

Look at that roasted milk chocolate go! I don't even know how you can roast milk but it sure tasted awesome with a hint of salted caramel taste.

Dehydrated chocolate meringue, mango puree and roasted white chocolate river. mmm...We hassled the waiter to find out what they did to make a pretty skin for the mango puree and it is a very complex culinary process called 'spherification'.

Look at the pretty little golden ball. Put the whole ball in your mouth and you can feel a 'pop' sensation just like a caviar except your mouth would be filled with yummy mango puree. :D

Chocolate and Mandarin 'Surprise'

Super creamy chocolate ganache with mandarin fizz and mandarin jelly.  The 'surprise' was hidden pop rocks underneath the chocolate ganache.  It was a combination of smooth chocolate and little fireworks bouncing in my mouth.  So awesome! The mandarin fizz reminded me of those fizzy Lifesaver candies in a much creamier form.

Oompa Loompa Ice Cream Sundae with 'Chocolate River'

Ohhhhh~chocolate river! I thought it would be like Heston's chocolate water but sadly it  wasn't :( but oh well! This one is still very awesome.

There are many elements on this dish: pandan ice cream, chocolate chip cookies, honey comb, pretzels, peanuts, marshmallows, raspberry sauce and hot chocolate fudge as the river.  It really kind of resembles the overwhelming feeling when the children first saw what's inside of Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory.

By this time, I really had trouble breathing due to an overdose on sugar and not to mention that I'm super full.  Miss. S is crazy and finished off everyone's plate with indications that she can eat more...much more...

 Take home goodie bag!

Oh yay! Everyone gets a goodie bag filled with, yups, more candy!

At first, we discussed about going to KFC and try their double down to 'neutralise' the sweetness but after all that food, I could barely even move.  The double down has to wait.

Hello there,

I have a question for the webmaster/admin here at www.sugarpuffi.com.

May I use part of the information from your blog post right above if I provide a link back to this website?
