Walking past this place always make me want to grab their cakes and pastries back! Everything just look so nice at their display! I am glad that my colleague actually bought my birthday cake from this place which turn out to be incredibly yummy! I am always a fan of strawberry shortcake, and I have to say that their strawberry shortcake is probably one of the best that I ever had. The cream is so fresh and the cake is fluffy, definitely worth the price you pay!
Rive Gauche means left bank in French and the river in question is of course the Seine in Paris.
After trying several cakes from two stores in the mall and finding them totally unsatisfactory we decided to head to the basement for this takeaway stall.
The mont blanc ($6.50) was light with a distinct taste of chestnut. The cake consisted of vanilla sponge layered with smooth chestnut filling and whipped cream then finished with chestnut cream and a piece of Japanese chestnut.
The saint jean ($6) featured the same vanilla sponge which was moist and airy. The savory caramel chocolate and butter cream came together to create a salty-sweet flavor while slivered almond added some crunch to the creamy cake.
The macha swiss roll ($3.80) had fresh whipped cream and homemade red bean rolled in a Jasmine flavored macha sponge. The sponge was light and soft while the fragrance of tea shone through very well. The red bean filling in the centre wasn’t too sweet and it’s a great complement to the macha flavor.
The guanaja ($6.50) consisted of bittersweet chocolate mousse between two layers of chocolate sponge and a bottom layer of crispy biscuit. Topped with rich chocolate ganache and crunchy nuts to add texture, the cake was absolutely satisfying.
