One of the places we managed to drop by on a whirlwind weekend was the very newly opened Whisk Cafe in Tiong Bahru. The latest addition to the backyard groove of this sleepy neighbourhood, Whisk specializes in sweets and coffee, all made in-house. We got the recommended carrot cake, passionfruit and earl grey macarons, and a lemon tart to share. Of the three my favourite was the lemon tart – a smooth and substantial curd sufficiently tangy in rounded lemon flavour, with a good proportion of meringue to go along. While the tart crust could have been more buttery and a little larger in size, I really enjoyed the curd enough to feel quite satisfied. Also appreciated how packed the carrot cake was with candied fruits and nuts, all guests to a cinnamon party sandwiched between smooth layers of cream cheese icing. The accompanying coffee was sizeable and good, pairing well with the sweet treats. We also managed to chat a little with owner-chef Tricia, who should be very proud of her beautiful space at the corner of Seng Poh Road. Do drop by if you’re in the area – it’s a worthy competitor to the other cafes in town.
