We were excited to check out Zest Pâtisserie, a newly opened patisserie in Connaught Avenue, Cheras. Highlighting modern French technique of pastry making, diners can expect to find fine, dainty French cakes here as well as good quality coffee and tea.
Their menu consists of 12 different cakes, all beautifully crafted. We were told that they make the cakes on the premises daily using Elle & Vire butter and cream as well as imported Callebaut chocolate. Cakes here are priced between RM13.80 to RM15.80. To be honest, we had a difficult time deciding which cake to go for, as they all looked so pretty and delicious in the cake display. In the end, we settled for Fantaisie and Le Royale as well as a cappucino for Hubby.
The Fantaisie (RM13.80) features coconut mousse, passion fruit cremeux and matcha dacquoise; this is a fairly light cake with coconut as its dominating flavour. The Le Royale (RM14.30), one of their bestselling cakes, is made up of hazelnut feuilletine, chocolate mousse, chocolate cremeux and chocolate sponge, guaranteed to be a hit with chocolate lovers. I really like that our two choices were not too sweet yet they satisfied our sweet tooths. Hubby had the cappucino, followed by a Hazelnut Latte, which he commented was good. The coffee came with a cookie each, which had great texture and very tasty. They use RGB coffee here, and for tea, they serve Harney & Sons tea.

We were served a complimentary taster portion of Kaffir, a cheesecake infused with kaffir lime zest with a digestive base. I really enjoyed this for its tangy flavours, will consider getting this on our next visit. The pastry chef also kindly offered us another complimentary cake, Earl; this Earl Grey milk chocolate mousse cake was feathery light, and had a mango cremeux centre. We will definitely be back to try their other cake selections.
Thanks Hubby for the early birthday treat! #babysumobirthdaymonth ;)
