I stumbled upon this bakery by accident and as a sucker for anything desert, I decided to give this a try. I was clueless and have no idea on what to order as everything looks delicious and tempting. The counter girl was nice enough to assist me and help me to decide. She's suggesting the famous strawberry shortcake and I decided to give it a go.
To my personal liking, I think the cake is a little dry and tad too sweet. My friend bought their chocolate cake and it tastes much better compared to mine. The sweetness is just right, with soft sponge and it's just great. I will definitely buy this on my next visit.
Unfamiliar with the brand Rive gauche, I was curious when my relative brought in this cake to a party. Safe to say, I haven't forgotten the name ever since that night 2 years ago.
Gosh their cakes are one of the classiest I've seen and tasted! I especially love their Strawberry Shortcake and their Mont Blanc, possibly two of the best cakes I've ever had the pleasure of tasting. Whatever the filings of any cake, I've found that Rive Gauche one are very smooth and go down easily.
I'm only hoping that they come out with more flavours for me to dig in to!
