Mezza9 Deli @ Grand Hyatt Singapore

25 February 2010


Desserts as the third and final feature of this mini series on Grand Hyatt Singapore. Well who knows, there may be more to come on Hyatt in the near future, but till then here's just a brief look at some of the little sweet treats on offer at the Mezza9 Deli.

Fruit Tart


Overall, I found this passable. The base's crust was a bit too hard, but at least the custard inside was smooth and eggy, the way I like it to be. No comments on the fruit slices though, they weren't exactly sweet to begin with.

Strawberry Shortcake


The cheesecake was a little bit too dense, and the awfully simple way that the jelly and fruit layer is placed on top (comes apart from the cake easily too) makes this quite ordinary and uninspiring.

Chocolate Crispy Cake


Of course, who can go wrong with the typical hazelnut praline cake, and here Mezza9 delivers on expectation and doesn't disappoint as well. I liked the way the thin sliver of dark chocolate complemented the milk chocolate mousse in the centre, and of course how these smooth textures balanced the crispy hazelnut feuilletine base.

While the cakes here at Mezza9 Deli are great for takeaways, you can always have it in the comfort of the Martini Bar with some drinks to go along with your sweets. As a word of caution though, if you're somehow inclined to order their "mini burger" ($9++), be prepared that it comes in an awesomely tiny (single) portion, the type where it should normally come in a trio than by itself.

Service
Excellent.

Price
$4.00 for the fruit tart
$6.50 for the strawberry cheesecake
$5.00 for the chocolate crispy cake

Something for you to think about. (Re:Conversation) I miss the innocence of your blog when you first started. (:

Yeah, about what we talked last night, at least I did some soul-searching and I'm sure I don't want my blog to go down the wrong way as many others.

This is not about fame, but about love :)
