Have you heard about red velvet cake? This cake has been the topic of discussion in numerous blogs that I read. Is this cake super duper delicious? Curiosity got the best of me, so off we went to Empire Shopping Gallery one fine weekend (way before I gave birth) to check out Whisk Espresso Bar / Bake Shop. Words have it that this place sells tasty red velvet cake. Besides cakes, the Whisk also offers other dishes. It is just perfect for us spending our teatime there. This little café has a warmth cozy feeling to it. The staffs are friendly and courteous. However, the seats are limited due to it small space. We ordered a few items on the menu.

After tasting the red velvet cake, I personally find it just so-so. It tastes good but for me not super duper delicious. So, I don’t understand what the fuss over it is all about. Hubby and my two kids like it though. One thing that put me off is the coloring. It is a bit too much as both my kids have red teeth after eating the cake. Maybe I should try this cake at other places first before giving up on it.
On the other hand, I like their bagel and pizza. The bagel reminded me of my university days. My first encounter with bagel was when I was in the US. I tried it, liked it and still do. I like it more with cream cheese and hummus. In the States, there were flavored bagel such as pumpkin, strawberry, nutty and many more. Along the same line, Whisk’s thin-crusted pizza is also appetizing even though it does not come loaded with variety of toppings.
