It’s been a few days since my last post and much has happened since then. Well, by “much” I mean I’ve moved from an apartment back into a house, did some unpacking and am slowing getting used to driving new routes to and from the house. Anyways, after all this packing and unpacking, I am now dreaming of some great Chocolate cake by Cherubin following my virtual trip to ISAO.
I love chocolate, I love dark chocolate. I love chocolate that isn’t too sweet nor too creamy. I love Lindt dark chocolates. They’re the best.
There are a lot of bakery shops in Bangkok with all types of cakes to suit your style, but one that is especially appealing to me though is CHERUBIN. It’s located on Sukhumvit 31, right next to ISAO (reviewed in my previous post) and is a cute little bakery with roughly 6-7 tables. It’s quite spacious and there is an adorable little corner inhabited by a number of teddy bears. (I know I’m a little old for teddy bears, but there is just something about them that make me all soft inside. ) It has a clean, sleek atmosphere yet there are also two soft couches and some teddies here and there to make you feel cosy and warm.
They have a great menu of cakes, with the main ingredient all being chocolate. (Yes, they specialize in chocolate so if you are a chocolate lover like me, you’d love it.) With over a dozen kind of cakes to choose from I was at a lost and so I had to try their best recommendations. I had the “Nuts About Chocolate, “the “French Chocolate Cake” and “Caramel Monkey” both were just wonderfully delicious.
The Nuts about Chocolate was a two-layered soft chocolate sponge covered with chocolate and almond nuts. The chocolate was just the way I like it..not too sweet, not too fudge-like and had a delicate choclate taste. The French Chocolate cake was also good for those who like warm chocolate cake where the centre just melts away with each bite. This too wasn’t so sweet and the slightly salty taste was good. I also had the Caramel Monkey which, of course, has bananas inside it, with some cream and a light coat of powdered chocolate. Hmm… it was good.
To go with these cakes, Cherubin offers a variety of hot chocolate, ice chocolate, teas and other drinks. If you have tea, the pot is refillable with hot water so you could share it with a few of your friends.
Price-wise it is around 100-120thb ($3-4) per piece and you could spend a good hour or so there just having some chill out time or relaxing with good friends.
Mind you, it has only 2 parking spaces so I recommend walking a little and using the BTS. Get off at Phromprong station and walk to Sukhumvit 31. It’s on your left once you enter the soi. It’s a nice little walk.. you pass by Villa Supermarket and other little shops.
I hope you enjoy the cake! I don’t have it at the moment, but just writing about it takes me back to its wonderful taste. 🙂 Hmm..I will have to start baking once I’m settled in with the big oven.
