ANANAS Bar Brasserie – 7 Sweet Sweet Sins

Posted on Updated on

At Ananas (18 Argyle Street, The Rocks) you’d be having a mysterious extra EXTRA stomach for desserts, that allows your stomach to physiologically make room for one two or seven sugary sweet dishes. In between an episode of sugar rush hour a fancy cocktail to accommodate the sweet madness is only reasonable. Ananas clearly know how to make a statement with their desserts despite the name being French for ‘pineapple’. With their desserts being more playful then others, this French affair is becoming very common at The Rocks, especially the dessert department. When Amy from Milkteaxx , Isaac from ifat, Simone from SimiLicious, Lillian from Weekend Notes and 2 extra guests decided to pig out together one fine evening, it was only fair to also have a sweet treat after dinner. The only reasonable explanation for us to order 7 desserts is because there was 7 of us… 😀 Ananas (1)

Hands down for Ananas 4 Ways ($16) – A refreshing dessert that showcases 4 different ways of ananans: coconut mousse, air dried paper-thin pineapple slices, sorbet and pineapple jelly cubes. This is what I call a deconstructed pina colada on a plate . A very irresistible dish that will make your day seem like a trip to the beach. With the display of vibrant colour of yellow, this sweet juicy delight literally knows how to distinct itself from the rest of the other desserts on their menu. I was very impressed of its flavours as it didn’t taste artificial and is perfect for those who have winter blues. Ananas (2)

I then focused solely on eating Vanilla Cheesecake Mille Feuille with Exotic Sorbet ($16) because it was too good to miss. My taste buds thank Ananas for the pipped vanilla cream, crispy French pastry, exotic sorbet and jelly cubes. This cheesecake serves a delicious contrast of sweet vanilla and scrumptious conclusion with the fruity sorbet. Ananas (3)

The Pineapple Yogurt Popsicle ($9) got me tripping. I just couldn’t get enough of the pineapple yogurt. If you thought the natural pineapple flavour of the popsicle couldn’t get any more wicked then you practically haven’t tried anything yet. Cover that ice-cream with pink or yellow pop rocks and that my friend is what brings back childhood memories.

Drown your autumn blahs with Snickers Revolution ($18) – A very well deconstructed tempered cylinder shaped chocolate casing  filled with creamy peanut butter ice cream bedded on crushed chunks of salted peanuts. Sitting right next to to delicate chocolate bar was milk chocolate ice-cream. Such a magnifique plate I had second thoughts of ordering this again for myself this time. I swear, it looks simple but it’s one sick twisted dish that surprisingly not overwhelmingly sweet or salty. The flavours are consistent with a nice smooth texture of milk chocolate. Ananas (6)

I got to figure out how 7 people ate this fine Trio of Ananas éclairs ($18) – The way the pastry chef’s presented this on stone board is very creative and clearly highlights the 3 éclairs by chef’s selection. Well-sized éclair made with choux dough filled with either salted caramel, lemon meringue and dark chocolate. The idea of deciding which éclair tasted the best is cruel because all 3 tasted DAMN GOOD! A well balanced of sweet and salty flavour. Really appreciated the intense taste for each éclair and the little squiggly marshmallow line on top.

Give yourself a chance to be all caught up with Green Apple Variation ($14) – Be impressed with champagne foamgreen apple sorbet and apple crisp slices. One very imaginative dessert that is pretty impressive. The sliced apples are crispy and effervescent with a sweet, tart flavour. The glossy green droplets have a hard flesh that makes an excellent choice for this dish. Now I am not so sure if an apple a day keeps the doctor away…not so sure anymore… 😛 Ananas (9)

Strawberries are a must-have when it comes to dessert time. It’s good to know Ananas offers Strawberries & Cream ($18) that consisted not just a barrage of strawberries but droplets of cream bedded on a cylinder meringue topped with a transparent sugar disc with garnished sliced fresh strawberries. The waiter then slowly pours room temperature strawberry coulis over the dish, adding a combination of red river infusion with bright, sweet aroma. An absolute popular fruity treat that provides a floral sensation with a crispy, tart finish.

Ain’t no doubt I was so strung out on the The Cinematheque ($17)–  A mix of Zubrowka, elderflower, apple , lime, mint and  lychee. This cocktail knows how to illustrate a cool touch with added crushed ice and fresh scent of garnished mint.

Get your caffeine fix with the delicious goodness of Salted Caramel Latte ($17)– One sip of this will get you buzzing. It’s a big mouth twist with all the angostura, salted caramel, vanilla and espresso. Thinking of all that bitter sweetness sounds just perfect. Not your usual morning cup of ordinary coffee because its infused of alcoholic mixture but a thumbs up for an aromatic lift. ananas-mini (3)

Make the most of your dessert stomach at Ananas with their exquisite desserts and indulging cocktails. This ain’t going to be the last time you see me at Ananas because the problem with me is that I am too deep involved with each and every one of their desserts, that it’s playing with my emotions. It’s really got me wanting more. I give 5 stars for romantic atmosphere and sexy unique presentations of their desserts. Ananas know how to easy someones mind for late night sweet treats as it has become a craze for the people who don’t sleep so early at night. Ananas (13)
