Patisserie Sadaharu Aoki (2007-05-16)
One of his shops is close to KL's office, so we stopped by so Samuel
could grab a signature cake of his before bringing it back to the
office to devour it. Since I am not really into cakes, I got a
Dacquoise. I've never seen it before and I suspected it's like a
macaron with a twist.
The Trio that Samuel got is a log-shaped cake made up of different
layers. I didn't copy the names of each layer but there's some
chocolate, ganache, apricot coulis, dacquoise and feuillantine pralinee
that's stacked and buried inside the cake.
My Dacquoise tasted like the classic macaron. In fact I
couldn't discern a significant difference between the two except their
shape. The cookie in the Dacquoise was light, delicate, crispy
and crumbly with a slightly chewy texture inside. The stuff
(Yeah, no idea what exactly it is and certainly no idea what it's
called) sandwiched between the cookies wasn't too sweet with a very
Samuel and I liked our treats but they were a bit expensive. I
suppose we deserve a treat ocassionally, don't we?
