The Dark Gallery: Amazing Chocolate High Tea Sets Only At Great World City

The Dark Gallery 3

Looking for the perfect place to impress your beloved on your next date night? Join The Dark Gallery for some fun and experience diverse chocolate creations at their newest outlet in Great World City

The Dark Gallery 4

The Dark Gallery has a sweet surprise with the opening of their newest and largest store at the newly-revamped Great World. The new store will include three different concepts by The Dark Gallery—a cafe, a retail store, and a dedicated dine-in salon with exclusive plated desserts as well as savoury dishes.

The idea behind the salon is an expansion on the brand’s philosophy in crafting artisan dark chocolate desserts. The menu features an exclusive variety of new dessert sets and customers can also enjoy two lovely high tea sets.

We started with the Dessert Degustation Set (S$39) which takes centre stage at the salon which includes a three-course menu with different textures and complementary elements.

The first course named Choco-Misu is The Dark Gallery’s take on the classic tiramisu. The sweet creation is a mixture of 75% Tanzanian Dark Chocolate Mousse, Chocolate Espresso Sponge, Mascarpone and Cacao Streusel.

The finished product is a rich and decadent chocolate tiramisu which I absolutely loved. The cream was luscious and smooth, balancing out the potent chocolate perfectly. The biscuit on the top, however, wasn’t the best addition to the tiramisu in my opinion, because it was slightly hard to bite into.

Next up is the mid-course, where customers can choose between the Chocolate Souffle or French Toast. The Chocolate Souffle is made of 66% dark chocolate souffle, pure vanilla ice cream, chocolate sauce and chocolate “soil”. Instead of that, I decided to go for the French Toast—which I definitely don’t regret choosing.

The French Toast was made with fluffy brioche bread and alongside was a light sea-salt butterscotch ice cream. For a bit of tartness, there’s also a side of fresh berries and the maple syrup tops it off with sweetness.

I’d say that this French toast is the best I’ve had because of how light and soft the bread was. I’d definitely recommend getting this for the second course!

To end off the set, I was treated to a whimsical Omakase Dessert Box. Within this dessert box, there were four separate bite-sized chocolates and I was advised on how to consume it in order to fully appreciate each and every sweet treat.

Start off with the Ruby Cream Pop, which is made without any artificial colouring. The ruby hue comes solely from the ruby chocolate. Each bite had a fruity, berry-like flavour that was really different from the regular bitter or sweet chocolates. The inside of the chocolate ball also a lovely smooth yoghurt cream cheese mousse.

The next chocolate treat was the Canele which I was slightly disappointed with because it was rather hard and difficult to cut or bite into. However taste-wise, the Canele had a lovely vanilla flavour as well as a sweet caramel outer layer that I liked very much.

For a more Japanese touch, The Dark Gallery also included Sesame Nama Chocolate, a chocolate coated in white sesame seeds. This had a great roasted flavour balanced with a mild sweetness.

To end off, I had an Earl Grey Lavender Macaron which was rather sub-standard and had sadly flattened due to the excessive moisture in the filling.

The other set that customers can indulge in is the All Day High Tea Set for 2 (S$65) which is undeniably great for sharing. This set includes both sweet and savoury treats that are bound to tantalise your taste buds.

The mini stand comprises two savoury bites as well as four other mini sweet treats.

For the savoury side, we have the Egg Mayo Sandwich. Sandwiched between two fluffy pieces of bread is an egg mayo spread that I feel that it could use more mayonnaise. As for the Mini Spinach and Mushroom Quiche, it was soft on the inside with a slightly crunchy tart exterior.

The sweet portion of this stand had the same Ruby Cream Pop which was my absolute favourite. 

The Marble Loaf with Earl Grey Chocolate Namelaka on the higher stand, to the left of the Ruby Cream Pop was slightly dense but balanced out with the cream atop it. There was also a Nut Crunch Bar made of almond and hazelnuts set beside the mini loaf which I really enjoyed because of its mixture of soft chocolate and crunchy nuts.

My favourite was the 68% Bali Dark Chocolate Banana Tart which was absolutely rich and decadent. I knew I would definitely have asked for more if only I could.

Other than the stand of the mini stand, you’ll get an ice cream waffle set to share. This includes a scoop of chocolate and vanilla ice cream, with berries and candied nuts to place atop the crispy and light waffles. The waffles were airy and crispy which paired perfectly with the rich ice cream.

For drinks, each customer can choose from an extensive list of beverages but what I’d personally recommend is one of the JING tea blends, an exclusive collaboration with The Dark Gallery. 

I tried the Earl Grey, which was somewhat of a palate cleanser between the sweet treats and the savoury bites. 

The Dark Gallery 5

If you’re a tea fan, you’ll definitely enjoy the different loose leaf tea brews which include Sencha from Shizuoka, Vintage Imperial Pu Er from Yunnan, China and Alishan from Taiwan. All of which will be served in a pot to complete your high tea experience!
