You know that little voice inside your head during a run that tells you to not push yourself anymore, to stop this self inflicted pain? I listened to it. I stopped. I brought 4 slices of cake. Life was good again. Finally got the push to go to Dolci Galleria after seeing the devil of a voucher offering 4 slices of cake, coffee and a bag of biscuits for $20. I like coupons.
Tiramisu – Made with mascarpone cheese and rum, sponge fingers soaked with espresso coffee syrup and Kahlua ($5.80)
Velvety panna cotta split into layers of earl grey tea and orange. The subtle earl grey tea hit the spot although I couldn’t taste the orange (may have been used to enhance the earl grey flavour ;)).
Earl Grey and Orange Duo – Earl Grey panna cotta layered on sweet navel orange panna cotta ($4.80)
A sugar hit to the blood please! Dense chocolate mud cake with a soft mousse layer made every bite melt in your mouth. Dark chocolate ganache covered the cake, tying everything together with it’s lovely bitterness. A cute little macaron-shell with a chocolate filling decorated the top – a little cherry on top me thinks.
Chocolate Truffle Cake – Belgium dark chocolate cake with dark chocolate mousse covered in chocolate ganache ($6)
The green tea layer by itself was very sweet with a hint of cheese. For me green tea should be bitter with a lingering sweetness – don’t think the mark was hit here. The red bean cake was dry and when this was combined with the green tea layer only a bland red bean flavour resulted.
