So last Friday after class, I took a bus all the way to Sunway Pyramid to meet up with my besties from high school! We decided to have desserts for lunch because its not every day you can meet up with a friend who thinks the same way as you do.
I liked the design of Caffe Bene, with its rock walls, and comfy cushioned seating. However, the seating area was limited, just a small corridor for the air-conditioned area, And a slightly-wider-than-the-corridor outdoor seating area. My friend & I had to stand for a while after making our order as there was not seats available.
Honey Bread (Garlic & Cheese) RM16
Toasted honey bread with garlic butter & cheese topping.
Taste wise, I thought that it was pretty normal. It wasn't really impressive and I thought that RM16 was way to steep for a simple toast like this :/
Would've been better if they'd substitute some of the cheese sauce with some melted cheese.
Feeling unsatisfied, we decided to try out their signature dessert- Bingsu. Perhaps it'd fare better?
Cookie & Cream Bingsu RM10.90 (S)
Bingsu is a Korean shaved ice dessert, usually topped with fruits & condensed milk. It is an extremely popular dessert in the South Korea. I've actually never heard of it before so I was quite excited to dig in!
On first glance I thought that this desserts looked impressive! The portion too was huge!
However, the Bingsu didn't really hit the spot.
The shaved ice was coarse in texture and it tasted like ice. You'd have to eat the shaved ice with the whipped cream/ice-cream (not really sure which was it) which was tad milky to my liking or the shaved ice is just..well ice! Thought that the cookie crumbs topping didn't really fit the dessert too as it tasted a little out of place.
I didn't really enjoyed the desserts there. Perhaps due to the difference in preference. Perhaps the Koreans love their desserts that way?
And because of the limited seating, we didn't get to devour our desserts slowly as there were too many customers, waiting for us to finish our dessert to "prowl" for our seats.
On another note, service was pleasant =)
Value for Money2
Keep it up!
