The birthday cake of my childhood was always Savoy’s taro cake. The birthday cake of the last couple years, however, has been from Black Star.
I will try to avoid burdening you with yet another review of Black Star’s famous watermelon strawberry cake. Instead, I will describe to you two less popular cakes.
The dragon cake was low in taste. Didn’t hit the spot.
The pistachio lemon zen cake was quite sweet. Didn’t hit the spot.
The black sesame yuzu cake was good. Not pictured, but we had a whole one last year.
The Japanese chicken curry pie was surprisingly good for a non-Japanese store, but quite expensive at around $9. I enjoyed the cripsy pastry and weird star-like shape.
The custard flan is delicious, lake a large Portuguese tart. I’ve had one every time I’ve been to Black Star over the past few months.
The rose-scented vanilla and strawberry and watermelon soft serve takes a cue from Black Star’s famous strawberry and watermelon cake. It is delicious, albeit a bit too sweet. A must try, especially with its dark chocolate waffle cone.
This Summer S’more, exclusive to the 2020-21 summer season was good! I loved the flaky croissant pastry and the filling of almond and vanilla custard creams. The marshmallow itself was not essential to the piece.
This slice of blueberry pie was also beautiful. The blueberries were huge and so juicy. So good.
4/5 – Custard flan good. Watermelon strawberry stuff good. Most things good. Not cheap.
