Cakes Galore in Fa Ying by Rama V

Things are getting sweeter at Fa Ying these days.  Recently they have brought in a cake counter and you can now enjoy some delicious home-baked goodies if you are tired of the usual Thai desserts.  Not that those are not good… I’m saying if you feel like having some cakes and tarts for a change, the selections here are worth trying.

Banana Cake Supreme (RM12)

The triple-layered Banana Cake Supreme with a topping of Caramel Ganache is deliciously moist and soft.  Unlike some other places which offer either a very dense cake or a super light airy sponge version, this one here is a perfect balance.  I like the soft texture which is full of real banana goodness.  The one minor gripe is that the caramel topping is a wee bit too sweet and a touch of sea saltiness would be perfect.

Chempedak Tart Tartin (RM10) 

The Chempedak Tart Tartin has chunks of the fruit embedded in it with a crusty top that’s smeared with caramelised chempedak coulis.  The texture here is dense and very aromatic, thanks to the chempedak.  Ask for a cup of hot tea to go with this – simply divine.

4 C’s – Carrots, Citrus, Cream Cheese Cake (RM14) 

The 4 C’s – a cake compacted with carrots and walnuts, slathered with cream cheese and pimped prettily with thin strands of citrussy orange peel. If you love healthy carrot cakes, this one’s for you.

Green Curry Chocolate Cake (RM12) 

Then we have the much-touted intriguing Green Curry Chocolate Cake.  I had read some teasers on this cake prior to my visit and I had visions of a chocolate cake with dollops of green curry embedded in it somewhere.  Well, in reality, it’s less dramatic than that and there’s certainly no blobs of green curry in the cake… it’s actually more refined and sedate.  Four moist layers of chocolate cake sandwiched with cream and ganache – sublime layers which are not too sweet.  The green curry flavour is very subtle and I’ll let you go try this and figure out where those flavours are embedded.  And … ohh, I love the crunchy toasted macadamia nuts scattered on top!

Walnut Brownies with Vanilla Ice Cream (RM12) 

The Walnut Brownies with Vanilla Ice Cream was just average, for me.  I’d go for the other cakes anytime.

While we were there, we tucked into a plate of Fried Glass Noodles with River Prawn and a bowl of hot tangy spicy bowl of Tomyum Noodles filled with sweet succulent seafood.  The glass noodles were done well, not oily and still retained a good measure of slippery bite.  The tomyum has all the flavours in the right proportions and intensity.  It was a great choice for a light dinner on a cool evening before stuffing our faces with cakes!

    I felt that their dessert list was a bit limited and I’m glad to know that they have more choices now!

    We were just there last week, but didn’t dare to try the Green Curry cake despite the insistence of the waiter. Went for the deep fried mango sticky rice instead. Maybe we will have to after your post! haha.
