Though it was a tough call on what to try and what to skip, the degustation began with tiramisu with kahlua shot. This layered dessert is going to be the hero for people(like myself) who love coffee and wouldn’t mind a lashing of liquor in their dessert.
Though I prefer my desserts to be chocolate/coffee predominant, surprisingly, I had falled in love with the velvety and rich mango peanut butter cheesecake and the unusual pina colada cake which was sprayed with white chocolate and had a surprise centre(what was the surprise centre? You’ll have to try it out to know).
I’ve had a lot of red velvet cakes before, and a few of them have turned out to be great, but the one I had here was very different from all the others. Named NutSoRed velvet cake, this cake had a deep crimson color in contrast to the snow white creme cheese, and was loaded with nuts.
However, the most interesting thing that I tried was the cola macaron. Black colored macaron caught my eye and my palate with the usual combination of cola and chocolate. While the coffee macaron would be my all time favourite.
After trying all this, I couldn’t help myself but to go back to my staple needs, chocolate. Had the creamy and soft triple chocolate mousse. A layer of milk chocolate,white chocolate and dark chocolate over a thin chocolate cake base. But the entire limelight was stolen by the oh-so-chocolaty Textures of chocolate, their signature dish. A piece of chocolate cake with a surprise centre of oreo biscuit, covered with chocolate glaze and crunchy corn flakes, and topped with a swirl of chocolate. Choco much ?
This is the to die for dessert for all the chocoholics out there.
Overall, my visit to this labyrinth named Shahpur Jat turned out to be a success, and a major role was played by Sugarama, a place where you would want to come for self indulgence and fill yourself with guilt that wouldn’t really matter when you dig into a sweet surprise.
Ps- a few desserts looked way too good to be eaten. So until I get into my devil mode, the review for those shall have to take a halt.
