Tiramisu – a blend of cheese, crème and coffee
Before entering the cafe, they have a riddle on a chalkboard displayed at the entrance. If you get the correct answer, 1 glass of ice tea on the house! But only one try per table. We totally had no clue so we didn't try answering least we embarrassed ourselves, hahas!
It feels quite homey and comfy. The waitress talked to us, recommended flavors and was constantly refilling our water. I ought to admit, their service for a cafe is great. This is the first time I've felt like I was taken care of in a cafe because most of the cafes are self-serviced.
They have different sizes for the tiramisu, ranging from Mini Hero ($3.50) to Buckethero ($27). We got the Mommahero ($7.50) size because Mini Hero sounds pathetically small (tiramisu in a cupcake).
This is an interesting concept because tiramisu has always been sold either in alcoholic or non-alcoholic flavors. This is the first time i come across a place whereby I can either customize or choose from a wide range of flavors (e.g. milo, horlicks, cinnamon etc).
Well, I think the taste is nice but not that wow-this-is-all-the-hands-down-in-the-world nice. The lemon lavender flavored has a sweet smell but the lemon taste is more dominant. The matcha is not bad, sweet but not too sweet but the original is still the best. The chicken wings are just average, nothing special about it:/
I thought it is a bit pricey because it is not that big but then again, the materials and ingredients used may not be cheap. You are allowed to bring back the jars and the kind waiter offered to wash them for us to prevent a stench.
If you haven't tried it yet and crave for some out-of-the-box tiramisu, this place can be in your options list.

tiramisu in a jar
I was very lucky to be gifted this tiramisu by one of my friends. The tiramisu was stored in a jar with strings tied to it. I have never seen had cakes in jars! I have seen it online on Instagram and food blogs and I was so excited to try this cake. The whole design of the jar was really appealing. When I opened the jar, I could smell it. The smell of tiramisu that no one can resist. The cake was moist and had a strong alcohol taste and you could tell that they do not skimp on their ingredients. As the cake was gifted to me, I did not know how my friend customized the cake to be. But I guess she ordered it with a high alcohol content and moist cake. I reallly like the tiramisu and the whole spoon-digging-into-cake thing that was going on. It is really hard to find good tiramisu as it is one challenging dessert to make so I am glad that The Tiramisu Hero saved the dessert world!
The nice packaging and high quality cake makes a good gift as well. I am sure the receiver would be happy to receive this cake, provided that he or she does take alcohol and coffee! I browsed their website and saw that they have little tiramisu cupcakes as well. How cute! I would definitely want to have this cake again and would not hesitate to order it myself and for my friends.
A very interesting and creative concept for tiramisus. I never thought that tiramisus could come in so many different types. The Tiramisu Hero specializes in many different types of tiramisus which include cupcakes, whole cakes and their trademark tiramisu in a jug.
I ordered the NoonaHero which is a huge serving. It can easily feed an entire family of 4! And for just $17.50, I think that it is extremely valued for money! When I collected my tiramisu, the lady who served me was very friendly and prompt as well! It didn't take long for me to collect my tiramisu and head back home. I could not wait to sink my spoon into the jug and try the tiramisu which looked so good!
As good as it looked, the tiramisu tasted superb! The wetness level was just right and the sweetness level was just right. I ordered level 1 for the alcohol level, sweetness level and wetness level. I actually preferred it more if the alcohol level was higher. Nevertheless, it has been a long time since I last tasted something so good. Would definitely head back for more!
