Awfully Chocolate (East Coast)

Awfully Chocolate has always occupied a special place in my heart. Once upon a time, whenever we celebrated anyone's birthday in the tutorial group, someone would always drive to Awfully Chocolate and get a cake. We have tried All Chocolate ($25.80 for 6"), Chocolate Banana ($28.20 for 6") and Chocolate Rum & Cherry ($29.60 for 6"). Till today, I'm not sure whether it's because of the joyous celebrations that made me love the cakes here. 

Oh but the annoying thing is that they don't sell slices of these cakes separately. 

So, we settled with the Super Stacked Chocolate Cake ($6.50) together with single scoop of Hei Ice Cream ($3.80) as recommended by one of the servers. Layers of warm dark chocolate fudge together with dark chocolate ice cream. Wouldn't have minded a stronger chocolate flavour in the cake though.

On their website, they state that it's "perhaps the darkest chocolate ice cream around" although I'm not sure how that true is. This is precisely the kind of thing you would classify as comfort food. However, I wished for something that matched its look- If I were going to see layers, I wished I could taste all that layers too, like a kueh lapis! Not sure if it's feasible for moist cakes though.

While it may be slightly overpriced, the excellent service makes up for it. The moment we stepped into the shop, we were asked whether they could help us with anything. When we took a seat, this guy came over and recommended the above together with some other desserts we could choose if we weren't looking for chocolate desserts. It was as though he knew the menu at the back of his hand. And then, came the girl who gave us the cake who was extremely friendly as well. While the cake may be above average but not the best chocolate cake around, the service has to be one of the best I've experienced so far.
