Mocking Tales – Be Amazed by Dungeons & Dragons, Fires & Potions
Ye olde ye olde! Step into a time long gone at Mocking Tales. Decked out in medieval décor, the café transports diners back to the middle ages.
The dishes are all cheekily named to resonate with the theme of the café. Look forward to The Nest of Phoenix (320B), Dragon’s Fire Breath (420B) and Inferno Mountain (480B).
Although we only tried their desserts, the café also sells savoury food, such as the Holy Crab (380B), which sees a deep fried soft shell crab perched on top of a waffle, and accompanied with sour cream sauce and tomatoes.
The Inferno Mountain is a video-worthy dessert. As the waiter brought out the unassuming cone of chocolate, we thought nothing of it. The next thing we know, he’s setting some alcohol ablaze, and pouring the flaming liquid down the chocolate cone, melting away the decadent chocolate and revealing what lies beneath – a treasure trove of ice cream balls. We were greeted with vibrant hues of electric blue, pastel lavender and creamy whites, which were the three different flavours of ice cream – cookie monster, lemon sorbet and milk.
We also had the Dragon’s Fire Breath, which was basically a cloud of cotton candy hiding a sweet banoffee tart, a scoop of milk ice cream and a pool of triple sec inside. The Dragon’s Fire Breath was sprinkled with cinnamon powder, before it was torched. Similar to the Inferno Mountain, this dessert would add value to the ‘gram for its pyrotechnic displays. However, I prefer the Inferno Mountain to the Dragon’s Fire Breath, purely because I enjoyed watching burning alcohol slide down the chocolate pyramid.
Mocking Tales is a great café to lounge a lazy Sunday away. Be blown away by the intriguing details, and awesome mystical design. Pick up some of the props, and start a gentleman’s “duel” with your friends the knight’s way, and remember to snap tons of pictures.
