Green Pandan Cake / Kueh Lapis
Introduction

Bengawan Solo was founded in 1979 by Tjendri Anastasia, originally from Indonesia. Anastasia's interest in Indonesian delicacies continued in the little home kitchen of her HDB flat.

Her home-made specialties even made it onto the shelves of some supermarkets and emporiums, albeit produced without a food manufacturing licence.

When officials from the Ministry of Environment finally caught up with her and her unlicenced food production, she was warned and instructed to stop her home baking business.

We ordered a cake to celebrate dm's birthday. I asked for a cake with less cream and the staff recommended me this chocolate hazelnut cake ($37.8 per kg). I have to admit that I was rather skeptical at first because this cake looks rather simple. It looks elegant, but not as 'delightful' as other fruit cake. However, I was pleasantly surprise after taken a bite of it. The cake was soft, and rich in Nutella taste which I love. The amount of cream was just right, the first time ...

Kueh dadar $1.20 has the lack of pandan fragrance but the proportion of coconut fillings and thickness of the kueh dadar skin was just right. The pandan cheese roll $1.20 had a strong cheese taste (the fillings) but it was not smooth enough. The pandan roll was soft and moist.

Iced avocado

I had a bowl of iced avocado today as the weather was really hot. There were black sugar and condensed milk as toppings. This dessert is made up of shaved ice, chopped avocadoes, grapefruits and red beans. This is priced at $3.50 which is acceptable. This dessert is good to quench one's thirst especially on a hot day. I like how there is a dining-in area allocated for bengawan solo although the area is quite cramped but it allows diners to dine in and enjoy their desserts.

Other than Pandan cake and Kueh Lapis, Bengawan Solo also makes good and delicious Swiss Roll. I had bought this Swiss roll with strawberry jam. The cake texture was soft and fluffy. There was vanila cream and strawberry jam in between the roll. The cake tasted sweet and buttery, the vanila cream tasted slightly salty. The strawberry jam slightly sweet and sourish.  [Review from mobile]

It totally comes to my surprise there is actually a cafe inside bengawan solo and yes they are selling chendol! I was looking for somewhere to sit down, relax and chit chat after some walks around the shopping centre and we noticed that Bengawan Solo do provide seatings. Without further ado, we went into the shop and take a look. There, we decided to order some kuehs and chendol. Food From what I know, Bengawan Solo cakes and kuehs have a high standard and it wont disappoin...

This is my first time trying out the pandan cakes from Bengawan Solo. Priced at $1 per slice, it is quite expensive, considering $2 can get an entire sponge cake from Giant or Shop and Save, of course at a lower 'quality'. Anyway, the cake is very fragrant and quite springy to the touch. I thought it is very soft and tasted fresh - not those stale cakes which have been left out for a long time. I could also taste coconut, in fact, I taste more coconut than that of pandan. Overa...

Bengawan solo always reminds me more of cakes and kueh, and my idea of them are pretty restricted to such. Thus, i was surprised when i went to the outlet at west mall and realised that they do sell ice desert like chendol! I just had to try that out. The chendol is, by far the best that i had!! Seriously, do try it out if you happen to pass by! The coconut milk is thick and sweet, and expect the rest to be like normal chendol. They have also substitute red bean with kidney bean...
