My two cents:

If you are looking for a cool place to impress your friends (or girlfriend/boyfriend), this is the place.

The ambience of the eatery takes you far away from the moment that you step foot in; you'll feel cozy and relaxed and with the interesting variety of drinks available – such as their Piña Colada Breakfast Shake and Vodka Peanut Butter Shake – it wouldn't be long before your guests start telling you "Hey, good intro of a place! Thanks!"

The eatery offers all-day breakfast to mains suited for lunch and dinner, as well as cocktails and affordable $6 happy hour side-snacks to go with your jugs of draft beer. Needless to say, Mr & Mrs Maxwell's also offers a flaming selection of desserts that you wouldn't want to miss.

The desserts featured in this post have all been recommended by the staff of The Club, and with utmost honesty... these are the coolest desserts that I have ever seen!!

I am a huge fan of flambéd food, and with that... I have high expectations too. Nothing sucks more than when you see a food being flambéd and you go.. WAH!!! And then, none of that fine liqueur used managed to get seeped into the food. The whole point of flambé is not just for aesthetic purposes but also for the subtle taste of alcohol such that with each bite that you take, it is like... edible alcohol.

I was so glad when I took a bite each from their Baked Alaska and Crêpe Suzette, and I could taste the alcohol used swirling around my tongue lightly.

The Baked Alaska was something that I had never tried. Who bakes ice cream?! I didn't even know that ice cream could be baked, but it was a pleasant surprise! The first mouthful was smokiness from the charring, the soothing texture from the ice cream, sweetness and slight stickiness from the cotton candy, and on an ending note the after-taste of the liqueur used during the flambé.

I have immense respect for soufflés because they are so hard to bake and have them rise. So you can imagine my wow-ed expression when I was served their Grand Marnier Soufflé which stood so tall, and when I dug my spoon... the inside of the soufflé was still soft and moist! This is (hands down) my favourite dessert of the mix.

Crêpe Suzette is a french dessert consisting of crêpe with a sauce of caramelized sugar and butter, orange juice and zest, and served flambéd with orange liqueur.

*Zest: A food ingredient that is prepared by scraping or cutting from the outer, colorful skin of unwaxed citrus fruits such as lemon, orange, citron, and lime, for the adding of flavour to foods.

This is my first time trying Crêpe Suzette and I am going to be on the look-out for it if I am ever in France. Unlike your usual crêpe which might be extremely sweet, this one leans towards being more citrus-y with strong hints of orange liqueur. I like the added zest because it gave an added definition of flavour and fragrance to the crêpe.
