Posts Tagged ‘Mousse Cake’

I was quite excited when Choco Coo Cafe opened in Coquitlam earlier this year. There are not many dessert/cafe options in the area, so it’s always nice to see another addition, especially seeing all the beautiful photos on Instagram. I was intrigued.

So one weekend evening after dinner with a bunch of friends, we all went to Choco Coo for desserts.

It wasn’t a super hot day, so I ordered a hot Green Tea Latte. Check out the cute bear latte art! haha it looked a bit sad/grumpy/mischief depending on how you look at it, and it took me awhile before I finally decided to stir it in! The latte was light and frothy, yet rich and creamy, with a right amount of matcha flavour. I tend to like my drink hot, so I found this to be just on the luke warm side.

Trafalgars Bistro at Trafalgar and West 16th has always been our favourite. It’s been our go-to place for Valentine’s Day, anniversary, birthdays and any special occasions in between. We were always impressed by the desserts, which were supplied by its sister operation, Sweet Obsession, located right next door; but it was only until recent days that we finally stopped by Sweet Obsession for some sweet treats.

On two separate occasions, we tried four different desserts. First, the Lemon Mousse Cake was creamy and had prominent lemon flavours. It had a good mousse to cake to lemon curd ratio. The lemon layers could be sourer but the flavours were well balanced. This was refreshing and very enjoyable.

On the other hand, Chocolate Hazelnut Zuccotto was just decadent. It reminded me of Ferrero Roche with nutty hazelnut flavours. The chocolate chiffon cake was light and airy, the hazelnut layer was a bit loose, but all layers combined made it a rich and creamy cake.

The Bittersweet Chocolate Buttercream was another rich dessert. (more…)
