7adam is a art gallery cum restaurant, housed in a black and white colonial building. Hidden atop a hill at Adam Park, 7adam is quietly situated away from the hustle and bustle of life, allowing the visitors to soak in the artistic atmosphere while enjoying modern bistro fare.

Chocolate souffle ($12) – The Chocolate souffle arrived with a fragrant chocolatey baked aroma. Breaking apart the slightly crisp, dry but fluffy top surface revealed a molten chocolate centre! This surprising scene, not expected of a souffle, got us into huge delight! The chocolate wasn’t too sweet, tasting of bitter Valrhona chocolate. Beneath the smooth viscous molten chocolate laid the spongy regions. The sponge was moist and equally rich, which we enjoyed as well. The Chocolate souffle was accompanied by sliced oranges and vanilla ice cream. The nuts beneath the vanilla ice cream added a nutty fragrance and taste to the good ol’ plain vanilla. What we appreciated was the fact that the bitter Chocolate souffle was well paired with the sour oranges and sweet ice cream. The entire presentation and pairing of individual items were well thought out as each item complement one another in terms of taste. This definitely played well to our palates.

Chunky peanut chocolate mousse, caramelized ($12) – The Chunky peanut chocolate mousse looked just like a slab of chocolate fudge. It sat prettily atop some crushed peanuts. These crushed peanuts did add a crunchy texture to the chocolate mousse, but what was inadequate was its freshness. The chocolate mousse was dense, rich and slightly sweeter than the Chocolate souffle. It was not as creamy as typical mousse and had a texture akin to chocolate fudge. There was a slight tinge of peanut taste in the mousse, but not that strong and obvious enough. Accompanying the chocolate mousse were slices of caramelized bananas. The caramel was on the bitter side, which balanced out the sweetness of the chocolate mousse.
