for photos and more reviews, visit http://thelittlemomentsofmylife.blogspot.com/ perhaps i should start off with the dessert first and explain what 'torte' is. haha i thought it was just some classy name, but apparently it is a kind of dessert! a torte is a (SUPER) rich flourless cake, and is really really dense and chocolate-y. a few mouthfuls of the Signature Torte ($3.50), and you'll start to feel the weight of it already. top it off with a cold creamy ice-cream (+$1), and it balances out the taste beautifully. i would still advise you to share it though. trying to finish one yourself will probably ruin the whole experience because you might just get a little sick of the taste after awhile.all the desserts are SUPER RICH, SUPER CREAMY, SUPER SWEET. haha take the challenge and try them! (:torte produces its own gourmet chips ($3.50) - yam & sweet potato if i remember correctly! these are painstakingly shaved by the assistant chef everyday and deep-fried freshly for consumption. the result is crisply thin slices of chips with an interesting sprinkle of seasoning, and are positively addictive, yet they feel somewhat less sinful than your average potato chips.i thoroughly enjoyed the shrimp dumplings ($7.50 for 10pcs). all the dishes here are made in-house from scratch, so there is none of that packaged nonsense you grab from the supermarket shelf. the shrimps are uber fresh, and encased in a crisp crackly casing. the soy sauce that comes as a complement simply brings the flavours together nicely. absolutely LOVED the buffalo wings ($7.50) here!!! for once, chicken wings which are generously drenched with the sauce. how many times have i tolerated a skimpy amount of sauce which is barely enough to cover the meat. at torte, every single inch of the chicken is covered in a thick layer slightly sweet barbeque sauce. it is accompanied with a dollop of blue cheese which was surprisingly not bad! the addition of savouriness to the dish further enhanced the flavour of the chicken.we tried the sliders - which are mini burgers that are super cute!!! haha. the beef with bleu cheese ( $9.50) had a rather strong flavour of blue cheese, which i still couldnt really appreciate, but i loved the soft onions inside which lent a sweet dimension to the burger.i enjoyed the beef with guacamole ($11) sliders! it seemed like such a healthy dish haha. oh yeah, it came with a generous serving of fresh salad as well! continue reading

Had lunch with colleagues there on Friday. They ordered the Basa fish with wedges and I had the Salmon belly with Arborio rice. My colleagues find this just so-so, they said the fish tasted like it came out from a freezer.I love my main, salmon was cooked just nice, a little soft and tender, and the sauce that went along was good. Texture of the rice was a bit like risotto, soft and chewy at the same time.I had bought their Lemon cheesecake and chocolate torte to try at office the day before. The cheesecake was really good, light and not too sweet. The torte is very chocolately and can be a little sweet for people who dont enjoy sweet stuffs. continue reading

For full review: http://makeyourcaloriescount.blogspot.sg/2012/09/sg-torte.htmlHidden in a corner of SCWO (Singapore Council of Women's Organisations) at Waterloo Street, we were surprised to find this secret hideout almost full. We managed to occupy the last table available at about 8ish on a Friday night. Most were there for their rather affordable mains and of course, the torte for which their cafe is named after. Torte is usually a multi-layered cake made with buttercream, mousse, jam or fruits. Its unique taste lies in how it is made with little or no flour, giving it a dense and smooth texture. Famous for its chocolate torte, I thought it must be worth a visit even though I'm not a fan of chocolates. Afraid that we would get too jelat with just the chocolate torte and after finishing a rather fiery dinner, we decided to complement it with this chilled creme caramel, hoping to douse our tongues that were on fire. I was rather alarmed to see it being served in such small portion and it looked rather ready-made. As you can see, it's just the pudding at the bottom drizzled with gula melaka at the top. A rather fuss-free serving method I suppose. There wasn't a tinge of caramel taste in it, unlike the traditional kind which would have a layer of caramel poured into the base before adding the custard. The caramel sauce on top was also substituted with gula melaka. The custard was a tad hard (imagine the agar kind of hardness) and the gula melaka lacked its coconut fragrance. The thick sauce became overly sweet for our liking and it would have been better if it wasn't so dense. It felt like thick sugar syrup drizzled over hardened custard pudding.The presentation of desserts has always been important to me as desserts are usually my form of indulgence. I was shocked that the chef told us as a matter-of-fact that the ice cream had slipped and simply placed it on our table after that, serving the next table the exact same dessert with the ice cream intact. The ice cream was also very melted, and as we peered over the next table, it looked almost the same.I shall not be biased, so beyond the presentation, I was actually quite interested to find out what a torte tastes like. Digging into the rich chocolate portion, it was extremely smooth and tasted just like a slightly harder version of pudding. It wasn't served warm as what we'd expected but I supposed the chilled version goes better with the smooth velvet texture of the torte. It was rich, yet not overpowering nor overly sweet, and didn't have the bitter taste of dark chocolates. It won me, the non chocolate lover, over and I thought this was one of the rare chocolate desserts that I actually enjoyed. It really depends though, as my friends thought it was a little too rich for their liking. I thought it went really well with the ice cream, though it would have been better if the ice cream wasn't on the verge of becoming milk shake right upon serving. It was very soft throughout, probably been placed outside for quite a while before it reached our table, or the fridge wasn't working very well.I'd probably return if I have chocolate cravings since this is a rare place where I like the way it was prepared. Service wise, I thought they weren't quite up to it as we were quite lost with their cues. After asking us to take a seat when we wanted to have a look at the menu inside and order immediately, they took quite a while to reach us and even the payment took quite a while. I'm still quite anal about the attitude towards the messed up presentation of the torte too, but taste wise, I would still recommend that you give their torte a shot. continue reading

Torte is a nice break from the busy Orchard life. Tucked inside the SCWO at Waterloo Street, this place is slowly getting the attention it deserves (even without so much publicity) because of the food. Owner and head chef, Jason Ong, is always there to make sure that his restaurant serves good quality dishes. I went there for dinner last Friday -- and I ordered the Roasted Chicken thigh with potatoes and salad. There weren't a lot of diners there, since it is still a hidden gem, and order was served in less than 15 minutes.My chicken was generously drizzled in peppered sauce. As such, the taste was absorbed down to the bone. It was also cooked very tender and as soon as my knife touched the meat, it easily fell off the bone. As for the potatoes, they were a good replacement for rice. Salad was also fresh provided a healthy aspect to my meal.You can't really leave Torte without trying the desserts. After all, Chef is known for his desserts. I ordered the Chocolate Torte and my gosh-- it was one of the best I've tasted. It wasn't too sweet but it was very rich. It was drizzled with chocolate sauce and sitting on top is vanilla ice cream. Two thumbs up!! continue reading

This is my second visit to Torte. Torte is one of the cafes around the area that serves rather cheap lunches. Although it is a one-man restaurant (Jason is the chef, waiter, and boss), food was served within a reasonable time when there weren't too many customers. Tried the chicken this time round - your average chicken with some spices, and comes with many little potatoes (there were much more potatoes as I did not want the greens that comes with it). Service was good. continue reading
