Whisk Expresso Bar & Bake Shop, Empire Shopping Gallery, Subang Jaya

After lunch at Four Seasons, I was craving for some desserts. I have read good things about Whisk Expresso Bar & Bake Shop, and it was conveniently located just a few shops away from Jaya Grocer.



The cafe is rather small, but very cosy and quaint. Luckily for us, the place wasn't packed (apparently it is very packed during the weekends). Whisk offers both sweet and savoury bites, but I was just interested in getting some desserts.





Being a weekday, there was still a large selection of cakes available. Since I've read many rave reviews about the Red Velvet Cake (RM11.90) here, we decided to try this. Apparently, this cake is one of the bestsellers at Whisk. The cake was moist enough but I would have preferred it with a thicker layer of cream frosting.




The owners love macarons hence the reason for introducing them at Whisk. The macarons here are so popular that they usually run out by late afternoon. We were able to sample 3 different flavours; pistachio (pale green), blackberry (purple) and pina colada (beige). The macarons were light and airy enough with a crisp shell and chewy filling. Off all the flavours, I liked the pistachio the best. The other two flavours did not have any distinct taste. The macarons here are pretty tiny, and sell for RM2 each. They also have large macarons at RM5.50 each.



Service: Good.

  3. Been there once to try out the famous Red Velvet. Their coffees are pretty good too. I like the place but it is kinda small which is virtually impossible to get a seat during weekends.
