Chalk Farm usually doesn't disappoint but some of their recent offerings have resulted in misadventures.
I was surprised by the Pandan Cake with Red Beans. Well, more shocked than surprised. It was dry in a unpleasantly dense manner and the tasteless cream did nothing to salvage the cake. A softer sponge and heavier handfuls of azuki beans would easily redeem this sorrowful cake.
Like its name - Black & Gold Sesame Cake, this is a rather polarizing cake. You either love it or you don't. It kind of grows on you but doesn't. I think most of us can't really decide if it's worth the mind games - I probably won't get it again.
