Upon seeing an elderly woman purchase a whole Ganache Earl Grey cake mentioning it was all for herself, we knew we had to try it. To our surprise, it wasn’t too sweet and all its flavors were so subtle we had to search for the ‘earl grey’ and ‘chocolate’ part — and this subtlety was what kept the forks going. The whipped cream (which was more milky than sweet), the thick chocolate ganache, the earl grey cream, bits of nuts and, finally, the crispy tart crust all come together to create a balance. Upon leaving, you might want to grab a few of their freshly-baked golden breads piled up in the center of the shop, as well. We think it’s safe to say that Chef CHO is doing something right, and the number of people filling up the pastry shop might be one evidence.
