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!
