I ended up in Puchong today, had some last minute shopping – home related items to purchase at SSF. Once that was done and over with, I started craving for some dessert, something sweet. Torte came to mind. I’ve been wanting to give it a go for some time now but travelling to this side of town solely for the dessert? Unlikely to happen. It simply isn’t convenient, costing me almost 25, 30 minutes from where I am based but yea, Torte has always been there at the back of my mind with their Russian inspired cakes.
Russian inspired cakes?? That piqued my interest. I had no idea how it was suppose to look like or would it taste like the usual cakes we come across at cafes here.
Torte is located in a business/retail park at 8 Kinrara. If you are driving, you can park in the basement car park provided. Do keep in mind that the residence and retail parking lots are located near each other but with separate entrance. If you end up at the residence part, its no biggie – with some minor reversing, you’d soon find yourself in the right direction. The parking rates are 2 ringgit for the first hour and 1 ringgit for each subsequent hour.
For those of you who prefer public transport – good news. It is less than a 2 minute walk away from the train station, Kinrara of the Sri Petaling LRT line as well as the Rapid KL bus stop.
**** This dessert cafe has wifi and a number of power/plug points. If you are in the area, it makes for a good place to sit down and get some work done while indulging in some desserts.
** Pelmeni is Russian style chicken dumplings. Vareniki is potato dumplings and Kachapuri is Russian cheese bread.
Pradzichny, 14 ringgit + Matcha Latte, 10 ringgit
I suppose this really is how Russian cakes looks like, with multiple layer. I Googled ‘Russian Cakes’ and yea, from the looks of it, it does come with many layers. Sort of like crepe cake except where crepe cake are a combination of many thin crepes, the cakes served here are made up of thick layers. Have you guys eaten Twix before? The chocolate bar by Mars? Yea, a layer of thick chocolate with another layer of gooey, sticky caramel – yup, when I had my first taste of Pradzichny, my head immediately when “Twix, Twix, Twix”. I loveeeeeeee Twix and so, you’d be able to imagine my delight indulging in this cake. It was thick from top to bottom. It was gooey, chocolate-ty, pleasantly sweet and simply decadent.
I liked the Matcha Latte here. It wasn’t overwhelming in Matcha which was awesome because there was just a lil bitterness. The drink as a whole was milky and foamy, not too sweet. I liked it.
