Michelin star chef William Ledeuil created the desserts and also trained the culinary team here. William Ledeuil’s accolades include 1 Michelin star for his Paris restaurant Ze Kitchen Galerie and being named Best Chef of the Year 2010 by Gault et Millau. For Carbon, he created gorgeous plates of desserts intricately assembled with multiple elements exhibiting different textures, flavours and colours.
For example, behold the Red Lipped Flames (红唇烈焰, 88RMB) with frosted pink balls of salty foie gras mousse, red wine and sakura jelly glistening like ruby red and pale pink gemstones, a scoop of raspberry sorbet and a black truffle chocolate truffle ball. That little ball will wake up your senses and rock your perception of chocolate. We usually have the earthy aroma of truffle in savoury dishes, so it’s a marvelous sensation when it’s combined with a rich dark chocolate.
Vanilla Crystals (水晶香草, 78RMB) was light and transcendent. It offered surprising discoveries in a combination of crystal grains of clear lemon jelly, mini globes of kiwi fruit, cucumber sauce and vanilla ice cream.
Blueberry Jelly Tart (果冻蓝莓塔, 48RMB) is a visually stunning dessert with large, plump blueberries suspended in a clear mint jelly over a graham crust.
Desserts will change depending on the seasons, with fruits and berries in summer and soufflés in winter.
Also take your time to browse the take-away dessert display because they are beautiful works of art. Whole cakes, such as Hazelnut Opera Cake or Sakura Cheesecake, can be ordered for between 238-348RMB for an 8-inch cake.
There is a variety of breads available, like baguettes, croissants, chocolate and almond croissants, pretzels, Hokkaido toast, etc. Breads are baked fresh daily from their own factory using yeast they ferment themselves. During the opening period promotion, if you dine-in at the restaurant after 7pm, you’ll receive 2 free breads of your choice. After 7pm, bread is also buy-1-get-1 free.
Look for more to come from Carbon, as there are big expansion plans in the works. In Raffles City mall alone, there will be 2 other Carbon restaurants coming soon.
