Room for Pudding – still maintains that you should expect the unexpected. We don’t provoke for provocation’s sake, but try our best to satisfy you with a dizzying array of tastes, temperatures, textures, tipples and tunes.
Our restaurant is centered around an oval dessert bar where our pastry chefs prepare and plate artistic bespoke desserts, while customers sit around enjoying wines and cocktails. The guests get to interact with the pastry chefs while they create their magical puddings.
Our pudding menu consists of 22 desserts with daily changes. We focus on seasonal cocktails that pair with many of the puddings.
Our wine list serves to match both cheese selections, puddings and desserts. We offer an interactive, casual and friendly service to customers that want to pop in for dessert and drinks after having dinner elsewhere or for guests who want to have a cheese and full dessert experience.
The food is served by our chefs, drinks are directly from our mixologists and the bills are settled directly with our hostess.

VINTAGE WINE & CHEESE
A gastronomic delight, where food shopping traditions become a journey of adventure and delight. On your walk through the food emporium, you will meet the greengrocer and select fruits, vegetables and herbs, as the grocer gives you thorough insight into all the fresh produce. All vegetables are presented in old wooden boxes with all the freshness and quality. Grade A produce at it’s finest, away from bland meat and poultry in supermarkets. Here you meet artisan butchers, who help you select your perfect meat. The butchers tell you about the origin of the meat with certainty, its age and the most natural method of slaughtering. Aged meat refrigerators allow the meat to hang and mature, making this a butcher shop of note where each piece of meat is carefully selected before being prepared to the highest quality. Spend an hour shopping here and experience the soundtrack of pumped music, dim lighting and a concierge assigned to whizz you around the shop when you enter and as you enjoy sampling bread from the bakery, meat from the butcher or the cheese from the large cheese counter.
You will have the luxury to buy artisan pizzas, all kinds of pasta and pasta sauces from the Italian kitchen. Asian kitchens will allow guests to take sushis or small ready-to-eat platters, duck-filled spring rolls, Asian tapas, a variety of dipping sauces, ramen and noodles. Our artisan bakery will offer thirty types of bread, and the breakfast counter will serve the finest Italian coffee, pain aux chocolates, quiches and a whole host of other dishes. Michelin quality desserts and cakes with a French touch, such as cream brûlée and lemon tart and home-made ice cream and macaroons will be served at the confectionery. Our fishmonger will assist you with your fish and shellfish choice, debone and deshell it for you so that you can just enjoy the fun part of cooking. This food emporium will take you back to an era before the modern supermarket, where you just grab and go. This will be a tranquil farmer’s market meets artisan experience, a place where the whole family can tag along.
Take a break while shopping and enjoy a coffee or wine tasting of the many samples on offer throughout the store. You can also grab a cookbook from our ‘Books for Cooks’ section and pick out a few recipes for dinner, or visit our ‘Chefs Playground’ where you can pick up one of our favourite chopping blocks, pots, pans, cooking utensils and chef knives.
