Ah Teng's Bakery Smile Aug 10, 2012

Categories : English | Bakery

A warm-looking interior greeted my eyes upon entering Ah Teng's Bakery. The aunty (staff) was really friendly and
provided excellent service to us, customers. Although the place looked messy, it was messy in a positive way, which
gave me a sense of being welcomed to a home. Tsa always ordered coffee or tea. This time was tea, and I was quite surprised that they served TWG English Breakfast tea bag.
Tsa decided to order the cheesecake to try which surprised me even more. Since when he eat cheesecake? The
cheesecake was nicely shaped as the exterior looked rather smooth as compared to elsewhere (more pleasing to look at).
I liked the cheesy texture of the cheese and found it quite normal while Tsa found it too heavy for him. I was so glad to
be offered all the plump, juicy and sweet blueberries as Tsa did not like fruits! (The size of those blueberries were about
the size of 10 cent coins!) Besides the cheesecake, Tsa also ordered the kuih lapis. It comes in 2 flavours, pandan and original. This was the original and it tasted really tasty although it was only mildly sweeten. I think Ah Teng's Bakery baked it themselves. As for me, I decided to try out their carrot muffin crumble. The crumble was crunchy and sweet which my sweet tooth loved! Munching into the muffin itself uncovered chunks of thin carrot strips, raisins and walnuts. The balance of the muffin was great and there was no one time when I felt that the flour was too much or too plain. (If you preferred soft muffins, this would not be your liking.) Upon seeing that Tsa ordered a cake, I decided to pick one too. I decided to try out the chocolate banana cake which was the last slice on the display. The layered of sponge, cream, banana and chocolate were nicely stacked on top of each other, making it looked compressed. I found that the sweetness of the chocolate balanced out the other layers itself. The banana was slightly mashed and looked a little blackish which I tried not to be bothered by its colour. The bad mistake I made was not ordering a drink and the sweetness of both desserts almost suffocated me! (Exaggerated a little)

Swj ordered the champagne grape snow ice, which he mentioned that he tried this a couple of times before. At first, I
also set my eyes on this dessert but decided to change my choice. (I sometimes wonder if my purpose of eating a
dessert was to enjoy or for photography.) The ice was infused with the strong and sweet flavor of grapes. Grapes went
well with grape snow ice (same taste merged well) and I found those agar agar balls served no purpose besides spoiling
the dessert itself.
As for me, back to square one! My comfort flavour of green tea with red bean snow ice. I enjoyed the mild bitter taste of green tea with the red beans. Actually those red beans were too sweet and I hoped they used azuki red beans instead!
As for Gbk, he wanted something hot after coming out from the freezing cinema. A bowl of thick black sesame paste was
comforting enough for him.
Kjf and Lzw ordered the same dessert, which was a bowl of peanut tung yuans. This was something I would not
appreciate (exclude the tung yuans) as I disliked most peanuts. Not quite sure how many tung yuans were given
though and I really had a hard time trying to make this picture clearer and more pleasing to the eyes!

Lks ordered a slice of Classic Marble Cheesecake. It was indeed a rather huge piece, a nice slab of cheese ready to make
our mouth sticky from all that cheesyness.
I ordered the Milky Choc Mousse with Raspberry Coulis. The outer coating of 'brown sand' was not perfect, with many
uncoated gaps around (I photoshopped it to make it looked better). Anyway, it looked atas, with dried up chocolate
staining on the side of the plate itself. Adding on with a twirl of thin chocolate and berries at the side. As for the cake,
pratically chocolate mousse entirely, was creamy, light and it was a decent dessert. However, I could not detect any hint
of red tea which was stated in the menu. (Too mild I supposed)
Wcy decided to indulge a little into something sinful too, and ordered the Cappuccino Cheesecake Dream. I thought that
the chocolate sauce at the base was quite messy and it spoilt the overall appearance. The chocolate ice cream with its
cocoa streusel went quite well with some cream (not all the cream!) and the cappuccino cheesecake.
As for Wll, she decided to try the Perfect Pairing which I had tried before. However, this version was slightly different
from what I had experienced back then. The cheese was served defrosted and felt like soft cream cheese instead of my
frozen solid one which I had trouble eating.

We decided to share this platter of Tako Skewer & Mentaiko Hotate. Just nice they came in fours and each of us got to
have one and enjoy without having a headache of splitting the food into parts. The sotongs were average and a little
unfresh. The sauce was quite diluted as it was almost as if there were no sauce. As for the scallops, the outer was
slightly crisp, with grainy texture. It was not creamy as I have expected it to be.
Wcy had the Crispy Oyster & Shimeji Spaghetti. I did not exactly try the oyster as I totally dislike it (I did try the crispy
batter). I think it was the batter that made the oysters looked plump.
Wll tried the Mentaiko Spaghetti with Salmon Tataki, which I have tried before. The egg with its bright orange centred
looked as tempting as ever. As a fan of salmon, I could not take my eyes off the smooth pinky flesh with spices lined
along the top of the slices. Anyway, the sauce had more of the seafood taste as compared to the previous pasta above.
Another pasta dish which Lks had ordered, recommended by Wll. It was Seafood Aglio Olio, dry but flaring hot (I think
to me only?). Scallops and prawns was all it had.
As for me, I had Beef Steak on Crispy Puff Pastry. The beef was almost well done when I requested medium rare. Luckily
it was not stiff but still tender or I would surely complain about it. I felt that the beef and puff pastry made a really
strange combination and I ate them separately. (Why the sauce made my beef looked so reflective??) The chunks of
potatoes tasted not to bad and I ate the salad without the sauce.

Gbk ordered the 'Listen to your heart' tea, which was a combination of fruits and flora. Not sure why he wanted to drink tea from a dessert outlet. (Must be the name of the tea that attracted him.) Beside the tea, he had a scope of Black Russian ice cream. It was an obvious alcoholic ice cream from its name as a cocktail had the same name. Not sure if the bitterness was
from the chocolate or from the alcohol. He did not really seems to enjoy his bitter choice!
As for me, I had a double scope. One flavor was the Lychee Martini which I was totally addicted to. It has a creamy texture with a slight hint of alcohol and mild lychee flavor. Every spoonful felt rather soothing and refreshing to me. The other flavor was Butterscotch and Pecan. (Another white ice cream) It was too sweet for my liking and it contained bits of nuts. The really bad thing about double or more scopes of ice cream in a cup is that if the flavors crash, it spoils the taste. Both Gbk and my ice cream came with a small glass of palate cleanser. It was Passion Fruit Sorbet that was quite sour and it helped to wash off our ice cream taste that lingered in our mouth. I accidently toppled the glass as the base was rounded. Luckily nothing spilled out as the sorbet was still in its icy form.
As for Lhy he had Wild Strawberries ice cream in a chocolate cup (I forgot the exact name). His dessert arrived and it
really made us laughed! It looked really gay, pink ice cream in a little distorted chocolate cup, with a strawberry resting
on a pile of cream on the ice cream. A supposing wise choice for females who wanted to act feminine. The wild
strawberries flavor tasted just like any other ordinary strawberry flavour. I guessed he got scammed by the extra word
'wild'!
