The Peak

The Peak

The Peak ($7.50) was, according to the waitress, a chestnut cake. The base of The Peak was a buttery sponge layer, following that was a layer of chestnut and vanilla mousse, topped with a layer of chestnut paste. The Peak was a very light cake. The top layer of chestnut paste was richer in flavours, with a sweet chestnut covered in sourish gelatin sitting at one end. But overall, the taste of the chestnuts didn’t stand out and it was a rather bland ordinary sponge cake.

64% Toffee ($6.75) – A chocolate tart in the shape of a cube. The chocolate-flavoured crust was rather tasteless and lacking in a buttery fragrance. The interior fillings consisted of 2 layers. The top was a dark chocolate ganache sitting on a thick layer of toffee. Surprisingly, this tart wasn’t cloyingly sweet, perhaps due to the bitterness from the chocolate which balanced out the sweetness from the toffee. The tart was also topped with chocolate mousse cubes, which was similar to the chocolate ganache but slightly more creamy.
