Food for Thought is a quaint little cafe situated close to the National Library along Victoria Street, and if you're in need of a cosy place for a sugar fix, this is it. There's something warm and inviting about this cafe and I like how everyone is so friendly in here. While me and my peers from school were here just for the desserts, I also hear that they whip up a pretty good meal too. Maybe I'll give it a try someday :)
Mango Cheese Cake: 4/5
"Non-baked cheese cake on a caramel crusty base topped with a mix of fresh cut and pureed mangoes." This cheese cake is nice - it wasn't too thick nor was it too sour, and having the bits and pieces of mangoes around the cake was just lovely.
Oreo Cheese Cake: 3.25/5
"Non-baked cheese cake full of crumbled mini oreos with an oreo cookie base." The oreo cheese cake on the other hand was just alright, or would I say, typical, of most oreo cheese cakes. I thought the one from McCafe (post coming up next week) was a wee bit better.
Chocolate Banana Malteser: 4/5
"Moist chocolate sponge layered with bananas and chocolate mousse, topped with halved chocolate maltesers and a delicate dark chocolate coating." Mmm, I like this - rich, sweet and chocolatey. Some of the girls found it a little too rich though, guess my threshold for chocolate is much higher!
Old Southern Red Velvet Cake: 4.5/5
"Three layered cherry cocoa vanilla pound cake slathered all over with a lemon cream cheese icing." The ladies' favourite, and with good reason. Maybe because it's pretty, or maybe because it's mysterious - would you expect this to taste like chocolate? Sure, the menu tells you there's cocoa, but when you take a bite of the cake, you would probably expect something more... cheery or strawberry. A mix of both really.
Nutella Chocolate Cupcake: 3/5
"Every Nutella fan's little friend, a small bite of hazelnut chocolatey goodness." I found the cupcake to be very ordinary, and quite dry after a while too. May I suggest someone comes up with a Nutella lava cake, the kind that spills warm and wet Nutella from the middle? Ah, that would be splendid.
Butterscotch Peach Crumble: 4.75/5
"Golden crumble crust filled with peaches, raisins and roasted almond slices in a bubbling homemade butterscotch sauce, topped with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream." Aren't you feeling hungry just reading the description - well, I am! My hurriedly taken photograph could do no justice to this sweet little gem. This was really really good because of the fresh and generous serving of peaches as well as the distinct flavour of the mildly burnt butterscotch. The ladies were going "ooh" and "aah" on this, and we were delighted to see that the crumble was really bubbling when it arrived. Pair it up with a scoop of cold ice-cream and it's all heaven :)
Very good, warm and friendly.
