Mangoesity

Mango lovers will certainly be delighted to be overwhelmed by so many variants of mango desserts. In addition, this mango-themed bakery actually guarantees its mango to be sweet and will do a 1-for-1 exchange if their mangoes are sour.

They have quite a fair bit of selection with 12 of them being featured on their poster.

As I was there before noon, there was 7 mango items and I gladly take-away one of each to share with my family members. In general, the desserts are priced between $2.80 to $4.80. At the point of purchase, there was a 20% discount. So, $24.30 for a total of 8 mango desserts.

Mango Millefeuille - $4.80

Mango Millefeuille ($4.80), my parents' favourite for the generous slice of mango. The sweet juicy fruit fits pretty well with the crisp pastry.

Mango Gelée Cake - $3.80

Mango Gelée Cake ($3.80) said to be Mangoesity's best seller, comprises of mango gelée, chantilly cream, sponge cake and fresh mangoes. The overall combination is refreshing with emphasis placed on the sugary sponge cake. Sliced mango and mango gelée finish the taste with a nice juicy punch.

At the point of my visit, there is a 15% discount for pre-ordering of whole cakes and the pricing is attractive.
400gm - $15.80 $13.40
600gm - $23.80 $20.20
1kg - $39.80 $33.80
2kg - $79.80 $67.80

Mango Pavlova - $3.80

Mango Pavlova ($3.80) turns out to be Yuan's favourite. This meringue-based dessert is not overly sweet and the idea of using a crispy meringue as a tart shell to house a generous serving of fresh mangoes makes this the most creative treat among the 7.

Mango Tango Cheesecake - $3.80

Mango Tango Cheesecake ($3.80) is slightly disappointing when compared to the rest. It has an oreo-base tart shell paired with cream cheese (flavoured with orange juice) and fresh mango. Don't be misled by the lonely mango ball placed on top of the creation as there is a generous slice of mango sandwiched within the cheese cake.

Mango Chocolate Tart - $3.80

A slight variant to the Mango Tango Cheesecake ($3.80) but instead has a thicker bitterish chocolate shell.

Mango Panna Cotta - $2.80

I didn't get to try the last two desserts but my sister described the Mango Panna Cotta ($2.80) to be light and not cloying.

Mango Yogurt Cheesecake - $3.80

As for the Mango Yogurt Cheesecake ($3.80), my sister summarized it with a nod in her head.

Pretty impressed by the variety this shop has put up and the effort the shop has placed to ensure the mangoes to be fresh and sweet. Definitely recommended in our humble opinion, particularly when a good mango creation is so hard to come by. Apart from the mangoes being fresh and juicy, my family members pointed out that the mangoes aren't fibrous.

Wow good discovery fen. I love a good mango cake. The Mango Gelée Cake and Mango Yogurt Cheesecake look good.

I still haven't got down to trying Ritz Carlton's mango mousse cake.

I went last year when this place first opened. Must say that my experience was not as positive as yours. Gelee was too dry and sweet; mango cheese was quite weak in taste. Perhaps it's time for a revisit :)

Ice: Indeed it is but the crowd isn't there when I pass by the shop last weekend. :(

I have not tried the Mango Yogurt Cheesecake but the Mango Gelée Cake is not too bad, given its price tag.

If you don't mind, I can share the Ritz Carlton's Mango Mousse Cake with you. Not sure if the hotel can pack it in slices for me. :)

PY: Hmm... The sponge is definitely on the denser side, not the light and airy ones like what the Japanese bakeries have.

Hopefully, the revisit will not disappoint.

On the contuary, the mango tart that I had today was so sweet that Yuan and I gave up in finishing it.
