Sinful Choc Gelato Mudpie

Now, doesn't that look totally tempting, absolutely sinful, makes you want to quit the diet and just indulge?

After dinner at the newly refurbished Marina Square, hubby and I were looking for a place to have a cup of coffee and we chanced upon this outlet called CHANGING APPETITES (known also as CA). They have a fairly good range of western fare, burgers, pasta, seafood combos etc but unfortunately, having just had our dinner, we couldn't really order any of the main courses. BUT what caught our attention were the promotion photos of their gelato mudpies on the wall at the side of the outlet, which looked really tempting.

So like fish being drawn by bait, we were pulled in - we flipped right to the dessert section of the menu and they got us, hook line and sinker! The gelato mudpies are CA's specialty and they have them in various flavors, but I only had eyes on the one they called "CHOC-A-LOT", basically a layer of chocolate chip gelato on top of another layer of chocolate gelato doused with rich chocolate fudge and a dollop of whipped cream, and before I forget, a lovely biscuit-like crust at the bottom. Hubby and I shared this concoction and it didn't take us long to wipe the dish clean (in fact, a bit embarrassed that there was very little evidence of fudge sauce left on the dish)! How I wished I had more tummy space (and less of the guilt, please) to try the tiramisu gelato, the green tea concoction, the chocolate chip with marshmallow, lavender honey ....

Kiwi-Pop CA also serves some fairly interesting drinks and sodas. We ordered this one called the "KIWI POP" - a soda drink with kiwi fruit flavors, slices of kiwi fruit and a scoop of lime sorbet. Quite refreshing, especially after that Choc-a-Lot.

This place bears another visit, and maybe the next time, I'll remember not to eat before I visit.
