Elegant cakes and pastries, probably the best desserts at Bonifacio High Street. And now there's more to The Cake Club than desserts...
The Cake Club serves some of Diamond Hotel's savory bestsellers from its Lobby Lounge, more than enough reasons to start your evening at The Cake Club. Comforting dishes using the best and freshest ingredients, with a wide selection of wine and tea to go with your meal, not to mention The Cake Club's signature desserts. All in one place.
Inside The Cake Club, the signature cake and pastry creations greet diners, including their popular homemade ice cream and a selection of fine chocolates from Royce. Here, you'll need a game plan and resist the urge to just dive in for dessert. Easier said than done, but the savory dishes are worth holding back on dessert.
Start with the GM Salad, with pan roasted mushrooms and fresh baby greens with a flavorful shallot vinaigrette and served on a crisp Parmesan basket. The fresh greens, sharp dressing and crisp Parmesan combine for delightful flavors and textures. A refreshing starter, and just a preview of more good things to come.
Porcini Mushroom Crepes with Parmesan and Emmental cheese drizzled with a light cream sauce. The nutty mushrooms with rich cheese is another flavor combo not to be missed at The Cake Club.
Baked Salmon with a Mediterranean crust on a bed of richly flavored saffron risotto, a light yet filling meal that's great with a glass of crisp white.
The saffron rice is flavorful, and this alone makes this dish a winner. The subtle flavors of the delicate baked salmon is enhanced by the rich cream, and the saffron rice completes the dish. A spoonful with a bit of everything releases distinct flavors that just blend well together.
Sato-San's Mentaiko Spaghetti, a rich pasta dish with spicy cod roe and dried seaweed with a cream sauce. The deceptively simple dish packs some serious flavors, with the rich cream, seaweed and cod roe combining for some awesome flavors.
Then, the heavy hitters arrived. The Cake Club's Roast Chicken, tender and juicy slow roasted chicken with haricot verts, mushrooms and potatoes. A comforting dish, and one that clearly reminds you that slow food still rules. The juices of the moist and tender chicken play well with the mushrooms and potatoes, with the haricot verts adding a nice crunchy texture in every bite.
This. Slow Roasted Beef Belly, fork tender beef with honey roasted baby carrots, brown rice and a side of horseradish cream. A favorite at Diamond Hotel's Lobby Lounge, and also a bestseller at The Cake Club. The tender and juicy beef belly is rich, with just the right mix of fay for that extra flavor. Add some horseradish cream for a little kick in flavor to cut through the richness of the beef, and some honey roasted carrots for a pleasant sweetness, perfect.
Pair your meal with wine from the Sommelier Selection to complete your dining experience at The Cake Club...
...or perhaps some Hediard Tea after dinner. And for dessert, there's no better place than The Cake Club. See some of The Cake Club's signature cakes and pastries, and wine pairing suggestions in my previous post at http://dude4food.blogspot.com/2013/08/sommelier-wine-flights-at-cake-club.html.
