D'zerts Cafe at 30 Jalan Pari Burong - Revisited with family

The Occasion - Revisit D'zerts Cafe in 2014
I brought my family - Bob, Graceful Gracious Grace & my MIL to revisit D'zerts Cafe this year to savour the delectable desserts at D'zerts Cafe at 30 Jalan Pari Burong, tucked away in the eastern part of little island Singapore. 

D'zerts Cafe is helmed by Chef Lemuel Tay & his dad Mr Tay Yong Seng who is an Engineer by training. Tay Yong Seng and Lemuel Tay is a father and son partnership on D'zerts Trading Pte Ltd - the company that operates D'zerts Cafe at 30 Jalan Pari Burong. Tay Yong Seng used to be an Electronic Engineer with SingTel for 25 years before he left to set up YS Travel with his wife, organizing tour packages to Batam, Malaysia, SE Asia region for SMEs, corporate companies, families, church groups, grassroots organizations. 

IT trained Lemuel Tay worked as a Chef with the Navy for four and a half years before he decided to strike out on his own to pursue his passion and love for creating and developing uniquely different, out of the ordinary pastry and desserts.

(Note *Not much has changed except that the Resident Chef featured in my feature write up for D'zerts Cafe when they first started in 2013 - Pastry Chef Yvette, has since left D'zerts Cafe to start her own Cafe called Hatter Street at 212 Hougang Street 21.**) 

Today D'zerts Cafe is growing strong with their regular customers coming in by the dozens, mostly families with kids, young couples on a busy Sunday afternoon, simply to savor the new menu & delectable desserts served here at D'zerts Cafe. 

The Ambience 
Decorating the entrance of D'zerts Cafe are wooden crates stacked neatly in staggered layers with fresh herbs & spices growing out of them - this makes for an edible garden and renders D'zerts Cafe pretty self-sufficient.

  • Pasta such as Aglio Olio, Linguini with cream sauce & mushroom or chicken,

Tucked away next to the gelato counter is the merchandise shelf where D'zerts Cafe retails Tupperware products.

Take a peek at our Dessert Panacea to satisfy our sweet tooth during this lovely sunny Sunday afternoon:

Mocha - warm brew with beautiful foam on top, and a dash of chocolate syrup at the base. 

Creme Brulee - lovely silky smooth, creamy texture & a melt in your mouth consistency with a mildly sweet lightly eggy flavor, and a crisp caramelised top scorched cover. I am an avid lover of Creme Brulee & is pretty adamant that a great Creme Brulee must be smooth, creamy, eggy & mildly sweet. D'zerts Cafe certainly makes one of the more unforgettable ones. 

Mango Passion - top layer is a lightly sourly tarty mango gelatin layer followed by vanilla mousse layer, resting on a thin Josconde layer followed by Mango mousse resting on final Josconde layer. All of D'zerts Cafe cakes come with a Josconde Sponge which has almond nuts blended into the sponge to give it a nutty taste.

Can't decide whether to drink Matcha or Latte, yet want to have your cake and eat it ? Well you can have them both in a cake at D'zerts Cafe. The Matcha Latte - made with green tea from real green tea bags that are extracted by lightly steaming the green tea, and the extract is then blended into mousse. The layer of Matcha mousse is thicker than the sponge and has a melt in your mouth texture that taste like green tea. All of D'zerts Cafe cakes come with a Josconde Sponge which has almond nuts blended into the sponge to give it a nutty taste.
