Deli @ Goodwood Park

11 JUL 2009

Wifey’s recent purchase in DFS Galleria got us a $50.oo discount voucher for any of the F&B chain by Goodwood Park Hotel… and that brought us to Deli… What better chance to try out one of the 50 yummiest cakes in Singapore – the durian mousse cake…

We were pretty much mesmerised by the wide selection of goodies… with many durian as well as non-durian cakes, puffs and tarts… After some feverish calculations, we decided on a whole range items, paid up and headed to grandma’s for a little afternoon delight!

As take-aways, we were given frozen durian cakes and puffs… which probably helps to prevent them from going bad… We were told we have to give it 30-45 mins to thaw before consuming… which equates to the trip to grandma’s… Just nice…

When we finally reached, we set everything up for a “mini-photoshoot” before digging in… I will just give a short note and rating for each of the cake, tart and puff…

Chocolate Fudge Cake ($6.00; Overall Rating: 6.75/10): Springy sponge, nice chocolate fudge thats not overly sweet…

Coffee Pecan ($6.00; Overall Rating: 5.5/10): Didn’t taste quite as good as I expected… Perhaps it is not good as a Take-away…

Midnight Double Chocolate ($3.00; Overall Rating: 6.25/10): Love the way it was presented… Only had a small bite of this and remember a lingering bitterness… Otherwise, it was average…

Mango Tartlet ($7.50; Overall Rating: 8.5/10): This tasted as good as it looked… Flooded with chunky mango cubes, topped with a single raspberry with traces of blueberry beneath… Together with the slices of almond and crunchy pastry, this is absolutely fantastic!

Pandan Durian Cake ($8.00; Overall Rating: 8/10): Layer of pandan and durian together with the coconut shavings which added depth equates to an excellent piece of cake. A rather generous slice for $8.00 too!

Durian Mousse Cake ($8.50; Overall Rating: 9/10): I can see how this got onto the 50 yummiest cake in Singapore. This is indeed a great durian mousse cake… Every bite into the smooth rich durian mousse was as if sinking my teeth into the real thing… Simply Heavenly!! Apparantly, 1 KG of this Durian Mousse Cake cost $53.00, and I think that is quite reasonable!!

Durian Puff and Durian Hazelnut Puff ($2.20 each; Overall Rating: 6/10): Looked excellent… but it was a little disappointing… I think the puff became overly soften due to the thawing of the frozen durian mousse, which was still pretty frozen towards its core even after more than 1 hour…

The assortment of durian puffs really looked enticing! Will have to give it another try, and eat it fresh at Deli!

Hmmm… We will have to revisit this place again soon with fellow durian lovers: Mom and Bro as they missed out on this session… Personally, I believe the Durian Mousse Cake and the Pandan Durian Cake is enough to make the returning trip all worthwhile!!

 

My Final Rating: 7.75/10

Address:
22 Scotts Road, Goodwood Park Hotel, Singapore

  1. Wow, nice collages with Goodwood Park Hotel as the background.

    The chocolate fudge cake looks so good but I didn’t recall seeing it on my last visit on Saturday.

    Is the coffee pecan a puff? Looks interesting since coffee cakes aren’t fantastic (except tiramisu).

    I thought 45min of thawing is not enough, I was hugging my durian sponge roll for 10 minutes after a 1 hour journey and the core is still frozen. If I am not mistaken, I thawed the durian mousse cake for more than 2 hours and it was heavenly =)

    Thanks for the compliment Fen 🙂
    Chocolate Fudge Cake was quite all right… and when I went back yesterday (19 JUL 2009), I did not see it on display too…
    With the Coffee Pecan, it was puff-like… though I didn’t quite like it as a take-away… Might give it another try if I get to eat it fresh…
    Our slice of durian mousse cake and portion of pandan durian cake thawed out well by the time we started digging into it… ~45-60 mins… just not the puffs… Definitely must try these puff fresh or make sure they thaw out well… I have a feeling the puffs should just be eaten fresh as the freeze-thaw process will take away from its original texture…
