Our coffee ( Latte and cappuccino) arrived very soon. With a whopping $68(?) , my cappuccino tasted nothing extraordinary. Rather, the chiefs had greater passion on desserts and pastries.$385 bought us 5 different cakes, the signature scones and 2 coffee.
Having not tried any remarkable scones before, i had been online earlier and made up my mind to give the signature scones a try; and they worked out! The lightish golden brown on the outside weren't particularly attractive among all the pastries and cakes but the unique butter smell was remarkable.Unlike those crumbly scones in other restaurants, these ones were still presentable when you halved it. The scone itself was so moist and fluffy and they did match with the rose petal jam.
Although i was pleasantly full, i still had the urge to try a bit more. I then ordered raspberry and apricot Mousse and Opera. The mousse was a successful surprise with a light sour taste of raspberry cake and bits of apricot at the bottom. It wasn't filling and it made a good "appetizer" before the Opera. The Opera tasted good and especially appreciate the semisweet chocolate on top crispy chocolate base . Yet, the numerous layers tasted no difference to me... maybe i was too full at that moment...
The american cheesecake and double chocolate cake my friend ordered were tasty as well. The cheesecake was rich in texture with thick moist crusts at the bottom. Again, i couldn't tell much difference between opera and double chocolate cake given they both had strong chocolate taste. ...
we ended up sitting there for 3 hours....
This cafe is no doubt a delightful addition to the world-renowned mandarin oriental.
