Love the oldschool blackforest cake

Hanis Cafe & Bakery, the sister of Han's Cafe, a casual dining concept well known over the years for its Asian and Western dishes. I decided to write about them today because I want to rave about their blackforest cake.

Being a lover of blackforest cakes, it is not easy to find the "authentically-flavored", childhood type blackforest cake in local context - fluffy and full of whipped cream, with dark cherries within the cake layers. If there is one thing Hanis / Hans is consistent about, it is the Blackforest Cake (SGD$4.20), something I would always order when I am at Hans. Yeah, eat your heart out, but I have always enjoyed their blackforest cake - very affordable and retaining the originality of my childhood memories. You know, those blackforest cakes sold at your estate bakeries, the kind your parents would order and collect three days later or buy over the counter? The blackforest cake here tastes like that exactly - spongy and fluffy in its thick chocolatey layers, loaded sinfully with loads of cream on top and in between layers, filled with juicy tarty black cherries, topped with chocolate shavings and bright red maraschino cherries. I could probably eat the entire cake (the small one) but I know I won't.

Food's okay but oh the horror of finding a seat

Han's food is value for money.. But at this outlet it's extremely difficult to find a seat- why? Maybe it's because there are students all around taking up tables studying with just a cup of coffee.

I have nothing against hardworking students studying for their exams outdoors (I myself am one too, although I study at home). But I think that during peak hours the management should tell them nicely to leave, to free up space for customers.

My wife & i often dine at this Cafe. Our favourite dishes is from the local menu which has quite a number of local cook food like "fry sliced fish with young ginger","fry salmon with green/red pepper", "fry beef with young ginger" & the dishes is served with rice. Moreover the cooking is not oily & is delicious. Also you can try the quality pastry or cakes. Pricing is reasonable(no GST & service charge). The place is spacious & comfortable.
