Chef Yamashita Cakes, My Kind of Sweet Heaven

If you are looking for a cafe to look pretty while enjoying your sweet cakes sitting comfortably on a sofa, look no further and make your way to Patties & Wiches at Ngee Ann City in Orchard Road. Patties & Wiches actually specialise in burgers and sandwiches but it also serves cakes made by the famous Japanese Patissier, Chef Yamashita. My friend and I could not decide what to eat so each of us ordered one cake each. My choice fell on the classic Mt Fuji while my friend opted a slice of Mille Feuille.

How did the cakes fare? Let's start with the Mille Feuille (S$6.80). Chef Yamashita's Mille Feuille comes with raspberry jam on top tof the layers of puff pastry, layered with fresh cream, sliced strawberries and pineapples. There is a whole strawberry sitting nicely on top of the top crust of the mille feuille. We can taste the crispiness of the flaky layers despite the generous use of the fresh cream. Taste wise, the combination of fresh cream, flaky crust and pieces of strawberry works wonderfully together without being too heavy on our palette.

Let's move along to the next cake on our plate, the Mt Fuji. Mt Fuji is a type of Mont Blanc cake. It is made with a generous amount of chestnut cream with chocolate sponge and chestnuts. Inside the cake, there is a piece of something taste like sweet potato. I prefer Mt Fuji compared to the Mille Feuille but my cake buddy prefer different.

It is unbelievable but it is true that girls always have some space left in their stomach for another type of dessert. We tried the mango cream puff but unfortunately the cakes fare way better than this mango cream puff. Such a letdown.

Oh well, let's end the lovely cake date with another pretty shot of my favourite Mt Fuji.
