Strawberry shortcake from Riders Cafe

Having tried a handful of Japanese-style strawberry shortcakes which uses sponge cake base and Chantilly cream. Riders cafe serves the American version. Fresh cream, custard served with butter cookie, strawberry and crunchy Caramel Crumbs.

Strawberry Shortcake

Unlike the Japanese's Chantilly cream, the whipped cream served in this dessert has a certain degree of "weight" and one may reconsider finishing this dessert on your own. The bottom layer of custard provides a refreshing after-taste and the overall combination is good.

Overall, this is a very refreshing dessert, somewhat similar to eating yogurt with oatmeal.

Try Wild Rocket's strawberry cheesecake with maple walnut ice cream, it's on Relish dessert menu too. Presentation is similar to this one but ingredients very different.

That one is my all time favorite dessert, I could just climb Mt Emily just for it.

Ah... Did an internet search about Wild Rocket and Relish. Think I will drop by Relish since Yuan has a liking of burgers...

Wow, a dessert that will make you climb Mt. Emily, guess I will have to put the SDP @ Marmalade Pantry on hold and try this one first =)

Thank you for the recommendation...

I would say the portion is 1/3 fresh cream, 1/3 Custard, 1/3 crumbs. Not forgeting they have one delicious piece of butter cookie :)
