I celebrated valentines day at canele because they had a V'day special. I had salmon whiles my boyfriend had ham & cameralised onions pancake for dinner. The pan fried salmon was cooked to perfection with the skin being slightly charred yet the insides with still a shade of rosy peach. The 2 pan fried scallops sitting beside the salmon offset the dish as they were tasteless.

The camralised onions with smoked ham inside a huge pancake was delicious though a little hard to eat. The dressing matched excellently with the salty sweet dish. The set included an artisan tea which was very light tasting and a delicious opera cake. For the price it was definitely worth it.

The first impression I had of Canelé was of 'wondrous'. With a posh interior, it was as though I had stepped food into a cosy little cafe in Paris or Italy. The staff there were extremely helpful and patient, explaining which were more popular amongst the crowds. I, myself, isn't a fanatic for macarons as they're too sweet for me (I'm more of a bittersweet person), but I've heard of great reviews from a couple friends who loves macarons more than anything in this world. Apparently, they are 'as heavenly as heaven, and earthier than TWG'.

The cakes that they offer are wondrously delectable; the chocolate melts right in your mouth, and the last thing on your mind would be the calorie overload. There's always the guilt ridden wondering if it was really worth blasting thousands of calories on a slice of cake (or two. You can never stop in Canelé). Well, I just have to say something: Go for it. You wouldn't regret it, after-all, Canelé isn't called as one of the best dessert places in Singapore for nothing.

The prices aren't exactly cheap, but they're not exorbitant either. Prepare to bring at least $50 if it's on a date with your (girl)friend; you wouldn't want to be embarrassed with an empty wallet. Don't worry, I promise it's all a bang for your buck.
