Al Borgo

Diplomatica – A puff-pastry like cake, alternating layers of pastry skin and custard, drizzled with sweet chocolate. It was a rather unique cake, as per Al Borgo’s usual fanciful desserts, but it wasn’t exactly one of our favourite ones. The custard wasn’t too sweet, hence it didn’t make us that sick after finishing the cake. The chocolate dressing however, was rather sweet. The puff pastry skin was very tough and resistant to cutting/biting. The entire combination of chocolate, custard and puff pastry skin reminded us of eclairs.

Chocolate Cake

Chocolate Cake – A cake with alternating layers of mousse-like chocolate and sponge. The entire cake had a very strong taste of orange, and upon tasting the sponge and chocolate separately, we figured the orange taste came from the chocolate.  The sponge was very moist and seemed like it had been thoroughly soaked in sugar syrup. The entire cake was rather soft and moist.



Profiteroles -The profiteroles were filled with cream  and drizzled with chocolate sauce. There was nothing too fantastic about the profiteroles, but there was a rather strong eggy taste in the cream, which we didn’t enjoy.
