Chocolate Origin has been known for its extremely chocolate cakes, and they have only 3 products in its shop – The original chocolate, dark and lava cake.

E.clat Gourmet Canteen – New F&B Canteen with All Day Breakfast

I am probably the first to write about this very new E.clat Gourmet Canteen. You may wonder what “E.clat” (pronounced ‘a-kla’) is – Not a long choux French pastry, but French meaning “great brilliance, as of performance or achievement”. Great performance for a canteen?
