better than awfully chocolate
If you didn’t fancy Awfully Chocolate’s standard chocolate cake like me, you might prefer Chocolate Origin. Chocolate Origin has a richer and denser chocolate cake and mousse filling, perfect for those who love their cakes really chocolatey.
I personally prefer the dark chocolate cake to the standard one, simply because I don’t like my chocolate too sweet and I feel that you can taste the chocolate flavor more intensely that way. Another favourite of mine would be their famous lava cake. The cake layer was moist without being mushy, and the lava was warm, thick and subtly sweet. I didn’t fancy the ice cream that came with it though. I felt that it was too icy and artificially flavored.
Overall, Chocolate Origin beats Awfully Chocolate’s standard chocolate cakes hands down, and I recommend chocolate lovers to go give it a try.
Willy Wonka Chocolate River
The chocolate lava cake was really like a miniature chocolate volcano waiting to erupt. Sinking my spoon into the centre, chocolate began to ooze out and the spoon just rocketed into my mouth in a second.It was just divine. The chocolate was warm and moist as it slid down my throat. It felt as though I had just gulped a mouthful of chocolate from Willy Wonka's Chocolate River. It was thick and I loved the feeling of the chocolate trickling down my throat. Plain it may be, the vanilla ice cream complemented well with the lava cake as it helped to abate the too-much-sweetness of the viscous chocolate.
Delectable lava cake
If you love chocolate lava cakes, then Chocolate Origin's lava cake is a definite must-try. Their lava cake is to-die-for; absolutely heavenly.
It is also quite affordable, at about $5 for a cake (if I recall correctly) and it leaves you quite full. I would only recommend this as a dessert if you did not have a heavy meal before because the lava cake can be quite filling, especially if you don't share it with anyone. I shared it with a friend and we happily wolfed it down within fifteen minutes.
As far as lava cakes go, Chocolate Origin really does a brilliant job, and I highly recommend it to everyone.
It's more awfully chocolate than Awfully Chocolate
I think I'm able to roughly gauge the cocoa content of chocolates and chocolate desserts without looking at any labels because, whenever I eat something that is rich in cocoa, I sneeze, and quite violently too. So the more violent my sneeze, the higher the cocoa content of the dessert.
And, after my first bite into Chocolate Origin's chocolate cake (I can't recall the exact name but it was just a standard chocolate cake), I think I nearly sneezed my inside out. It's full of rich, bitter cocoa goodness and I'm pretty sure it had more cocoa than Awfully Chocolate's standard chocolate cake. I have a feeling a chocolate aficionados will enjoy Chocolate Origin more.
Lava in a Cup
I am a total fan of lava cakes. so i was delighted when Chocolate Origin put up a Lava in a Cup banner! It was a little awkward when i was so excitedly wolfing down the lava cake right at the cashier area (which was also a walkway for basement 1 passer-bys) because there was no seats available. the lava cake tasted good, nothing exceptional about it except that there were additional layers of cream and vanilla icecream which added different textures to it. the price was reasonable $5 somewhere between average to slightly below average. overall, it was a lovely to-go lava cake.
Best chocolate cake ever!
I first tried Chocolate Origin's dark chocolate cake awhile back when I was at Changi Village with my family. The word 'chocolate' on their lit signboard that evening drew me in immediately. I rushed over to the counter and saw the luscious chocolate cakes on display, and I knew I had to try them that day. I called my family over to ask them if they would like to buy a cake to share, and they agreed almost instantly. We ended up buying the dark chocolate cake, more bitter and less sweet than the milk chocolate one.
It certainly lived up to my expectations and did not disappoint! The cake was rich, creamy and smooth with mousse like consistency. The cake in between the layers also was soft and spongy-just the way I like it.
The cakes were reasonably priced for the quality, taste and size of cake that you pay for. Awfully Chocolate certainly does have a worthy competitor, and I'd have to say Chocolate Origin's cakes might be even better.
The Choco-Holic’s Answer to Sheer Bliss
I’ve always been an ardent fan of Chocolate Lava Cake, but always found them a tad too pricey, averaging $8 to $15.
Imagine my joy when I came across Chocolate Origin, where the lovely folks do not compromise quality for affordability. At just $5, It’s a sinful but-oh-so-addictive, delightful combination. Warm, (very) moist chocolate cake with oozing lava placed on top of thick and creamy vanilla ice cream! I make it a point to buy one whenever I’m at 313!
They sell chocolate cake too, but the Lava Cake’s definitely the star.
My only gripe was there it’s just a stall with no seats, so you either need to hold it and eat while walking, or try getting a seat at food area.
Feeling skeptical? Try their free samples and you’ll realize why I’m a fan.
awfully chocolate, you have a competitor!
I was shopping in 313 when the word Free Sample caught my eye.. I know how singaporean right. I decided to head down to chocolate origin to get a free sample of their cakes.
It is good. Maybe even better than awfully chocolate. There is no cake in this 'cake' but more of moose textured rich chocolate in the shape of a cake. Too much of it would give you a sore throat, I promise you that. A small slice would do so if you are a quality over quantity kind of chocolate lover, this place is perfect for you. They also have a small cup of chocolate lava cake with icecream about the size of your palm and the cake is a totally different cake from the sample. It's a rich dark chocolate cake and if you are not a fan of dark chocolate, it may be too bitter for you. However, the combination of the chocolate lava and icecream was perfectly done-how can chocolate and ice cream go wrong, right?
Better than Awfully Chocolate
Chocolate Origin is a good fight for Awfully Chocolate. I first came to know about this shop when a friend posted their Lava Cake on facebook. It looked delicious and so very tempting. Basically it is a warm lava cake popped over vanilla ice cream and is sold at $5 each.
$5 for a dessert like this is reasonably priced to me but I was a tad disappointed when I visited the 313 outlet last week. My friends and I ordered 2 Lava cake and one was barely warm and so it tasted just blah – normal chocolate cake. The ice cream at the bottom was also way too frozen. So we ended up eating the cake first than the ice cream. What a pity as it would have been great if we can have warm melted chocolate + cake + ice cream all in a mouthful.
I also asked to try their cakes and I though their cakes were WAY better than Awfully Chocolate as the texture was richer and smoother without that jelly-ish mousse like thing that Awfully Chocolate cake have. Between the original cake and the dark (slightly bitter) cake, I prefer the former which is also cheaper (6 inch = $29). Will definitely come back again for the Original cake
Tried their lava cake
Even though I work at B3 Somerset 313, near Chocolate Origin, I have never noticed their shop as I decide what to eat during my hour long break I somehow always skim over their small nondescript shop even though I must have walked past them countless times. It wasn't until my friends decided to buy their chocolate lava cake that I found out about their existence.
I was not blown away by the tiny cake that cost about $5. It came in a cute cup with the warm cake and the cold vanilla ice cream in two separate layers. It was good initially but you'll start to get sick of the taste after a while. If you love chocolate lava cakes, you can try this, but it can go both ways.
