Fredo Galaxy –  A mini cake, cookie and pastry shop hidden in Tanglin Halt. Fredo Galaxy offers a rather wide selection of cakes, tarts, pound cakes and cookies. We tried 2 cakes – Chocolate de Tart and Blueberry Cheesecake.

Chocolate de Tart

Chocolate de Tart

Chocolate de Tart ($4.50) – The Chocolate de Tart was rather huge, around 3.5 inches in diameter. The filling was a chocolate ganache (thickness of around 1 to 1.2cm), which had a fudge-like texture. It was towards the bitter side, and was made of pure chocolate. The tart crust itself was very crispy however taste wise, it was very bland. We were honestly very impressed with the standard of the chocolate tart from Fredo Galaxy. The chocolate may not be of high premium quality like that at Laurent’s, but the chocolate standard wasn’t that bad. It was still rich, smooth and velvety. For this quality, serving size and price, the Chocolate de Tart from Fredo Galaxy is definitely one of the best chocolate tarts we have had.

Orange Blueberry Cheesecake

Orange Blueberry Cheesecake ($5.80) – While the Chocolate de Tart was a winner, the Orange Blueberry Cheesecake was a sore disappointment. Well firstly, there wasn’t any crust. We were guessing that the chef was attempting to incorporate the crust into the cheesecake itself, as we spotted several darker brown chunks embedded within the cheesecake. However, the darker brown (colour similar to oat crackers) chunks had a texture no different from the rest of the cheesecake. Taste wise, there wasn’t any differentiation as well. The cheesecake was rather crumbly, lacking in the unique distinct stickiness of cheesecake. It was more like a moist and dense sponge. There was a characteristic tinge of sourness in the cheesecake, but the taste of cheese was rather mild. Improvements ought to be made towards the cheesecake.
