SweetSpot, Singapore

SweetSpot is located at the flashy Marina Bay Sands hotel, opposite Ku De Ta, the "finest entertainment destination in South East Asia". Right.


SweetSpot has a wide array of pretty-looking treats. Their macarons, mille-feuilles and sacher tortes didn't quite appeal to me, so I opted for something more down-to-earth: a chocolate and hazelnut cookie.

At $2.80 a piece, this is considered expensive by Singapore standards. And boy, was it a waste of money after taking the first bite. The cookie was limp and lifeless. It tasted as if someone had left the lid off the cookie jar for too long. The cookie wasn't freshly baked.

 Sad cookie.

Happy salesman.

After this experience, I don't think I'll try any of SweetSpot's other offerings, no matter how pretty-looking they are.
