So I am still on the quest of looking out for a nice good earl grey cake which led me to Rive Gauche located at Suntec City. There’s 2 layers of sponge cake with a caramel crunchy biscuit filling topped with earl grey tea flavoured cream and chocolate mousse – not too bad I must admit.
But my love is still with All Things Delicious, presented it’s in simple form.
There’s been a recent Bingsu craze right here in Singapore, not that I’m complaining, but with such stiff competition, I’m not sure what’s the best? Having came across these on a friend’s Instagram page plus they have newly opened in the west – no better reason for us to try!
Injeolmi Toast – $5.90
I first tried Injeolmi when I was in Korea a few years ago and fell in loved with the chewy texture and nutty flavour. The ones served at Nunsaram which was incorporated with the toast was equally packed with flavours. Though the toast took longer to prepare, but so glad it was worth the wait. Crispy on the outside while it’s hot and chewy on the inside with every bite filled with big mouthfuls of injeolmi. I like how generous they were with the fillings and as seen, almonds and cranberries were no less. I would suggest to finish it while it’s still warm because when we left ours aside and it had hardened by a bit.
Green Tea Bingsu – $13.90
(I think there was an opening special price as we had it at Westgate which was a new location)
The ice shavings were very smooth and finely milled which made it easy on the pallet. With a good mix of sweetness from the milk and red bean with the slight bitterness of the green tea, I am totally sold over how much these bingsu’s have been raved about. Special mention for the ice cream which left a faint aftertaste which we could not make out what it was, of course it was a nice lingering flavoured with every bite. I honestly thought I could finish up one of these all by myself, but trust me, the portion is huge enough for at least 2-3 persons.
Of course, this is for friends that goes out of the way and is always ever gamed enough to try new places with me. I might not have mentioned this enough, but you people mean a lot to me.
My recent trip to Thailand saw me having one of the best cakes in Bangkok and I was blessed to have Kaew bought them for me. I do feel that Coffee beans by Dao is a little underrated as it has really good selection of cakes yet doesn’t get much attention (online). Upon further research about them, I realised that it’s fairly popular with the locals too, which is always a good thing.
(L) Thai Tea Mousse Cake and (R) Chocolate Meringue Cake
Special mention to that Thai Tea Mousse Cake which was a show stealer – irresistible piece, as I am a huge fan of cha-yen (typically known as thai ice tea), this mousse cake is packed with every ounce of flavour yet maintaining it’s light and fluffiness. I could eat this all day long and not get bored of it!
As for the Chocolate Meringue Cake is a moist cake filled with fluffiness. I am very selective when it comes to the chocolate flavoured items but this definitely got my attention. A cake that has a different layer with each bite.
White Strawberry Cheesecake
To satisfy that sweet tooth, the flavors are rich and it’s worth that calories! Nuff said, I can never resist a cheesecake that comes my way!
Thanks Kaew for thinking of me and I am always thankful for your hospitality each time I visit Bangkok, this time is no less!
What I’ve read from reviews mentioned that the deserts offered at PAUL Bakery (Singapore) can’t be compared with the taste of what is offered in Europe (Not like I’ve been to Europe anyways), but on my end, I thought the the selection and quality was good. The macarons was not bad while a friend liked the fruit tarts more, to each to his own taste. But overall it was a nice experience – nothing like a good cup of aromatic tea, macarons and the smell of fresh baked pastries lingering throughout the cafe while you unwind after a long day.
Drop by if you’ve not done so, who knows you might fall in love with the interior too, well, at least I did!
