We came for some sweet treats for an afternoon tea. I had passed by this restaurant many many times and had wanted to try their gelato in so long! This time finally had the good timing to try it out! There were 3 sizes of gelato at different prices. We ordered a Regular at $58 which meant 2 scoops. Small meant 1 while Grande meant 3 scoops. There were not many flavours to choose from: cream, chocolate, hazelnut, mango and raspberry, with the latter 2 being sherbet. Unfortunately they didn't have
There were 3 sizes of gelato at different prices. We ordered a Regular at $58 which meant 2 scoops. Small meant 1 while Grande meant 3 scoops. There were not many flavours to choose from: cream, chocolate, hazelnut, mango and raspberry, with the latter 2 being sherbet. Unfortunately they didn't have any more chocolate so we picked hazelnut and cream.
Hazelnut and Cream Regular Gelato at $58
The cream gelato actually tasted more like vanilla and it was ok. We liked the hazelnut gelato more as it was really quite rich in hazelnut and the flavour was pretty natural. Yet I fancied the hazelnut soft cream at Dalloyau more! The gelato was ok but I think they could have been more dense and more smooth. The waffle cone was ok, crispy but not particularly outstanding. A pass given the price.
Baked Cheese Cake with Fruits at $45
Apart from ice-cream, we also tried a piece of cake. Amongst the many pretty sliced cakes, we chose this Baked Cheese Cake with Fruits. It was a smooth but dense and thick cheese cake bottomed by a layer of probably oatmeal cookies and topped by some seasonal fruits. The seasonal fruits included strawberry, raspberry, blackberry, mango and kiwi. We really loved the texture and flavour of the cheese cake which was so dense and thick yet still smooth. The oatmeal cookies base enhanced the texture of the cake. There was some white cream between the fruits and the cheesecake. Overall a pretty high quality cheese cake indeed! I liked it! Cost of $45 definitely justified by the quality!
There were three tables each with 2 chairs just outside their restaurant which was a self-serviced area so that you could sort of eat-in without any additional service charge. The restaurant staff voluntarily offered to serve our cake on a paper plate when they knew we would be eating at the self-serviced area.
