Cafe: Blackflower Patisserie
Location: Shop 5, 37 Ultimo Road, Haymarket
The new Passionflower chain, a little sweet cafe located in the heart of Haymarket! After our little adventure to Gumshara, our sweet tooth was calling and we had walked passed this cafe on our way and had decided we shall pop in after.
There was a vast variety to choose from, or maybe it just seemed like I wanted to try everything!! But realistically, we could not – how sad.
|Cheeseburger Macaron $3.20|
Well, with the macarons – it was basically decided what we were going to have for sure! The cheeseburger macaron probably sold to us more over the fact of its looks than anything. I watched as Candice tried and eagerly my question slipped out, “does it taste like a real cheeseburger!?” And her initial response? A laugh.
“Silly, it’s not Zumbos macs!” I must say, that answer kind of made me feel disappointed. The texture was perfect ~ The shell was chewy and mmm~~~ excuse me while I reminisce that texture! However, to me, it was a little too sweet. So, for reference – the flavour is basically ... chocolate! J
Candice had allowed me to make the choice on what cake we could try, I was honoured. But seriously, it was not an easy choice ... I wanted to try so many!! But I settled for an orgy. Oh, sorry – let me reword that ... I settled for the orgy cake.
|Orgy Cake $6.50|
I don’t know about you, but I have a love for Asian cakes because of the light and fluffy sponge and (as unhealthy as this is) the dollop of cream in between and around. However, the sad part is – it never feels heavy to eat! And this is exactly what brings out the orgy cake texture, a modernised Asian cake. A fusion cake! The miso was rather subtle, possibly too subtle that I had missed it. But mmm~ to that salted toffee.
|Salted duck eggs and chorizo quiche $7|
We got a take away quiche for Candice’s brother. But being a growing boy, he managed to gobble it down in no time. But allowed me time to snap a quick shot! J They even have a cute way of packaging the quiche in a paper bag. Yes, we were impressed by a mere paper bag ...
I hate it when I get sold by packaging and marketing ... knowing full well that is exactly how they want to win us over. But I can’t help it at the same time! HAHA!
Until next time,
