My partner spent $90 on breakfast from Born to Bake Greek Patisserie Cafe on UberEats this morning. This is what she ordered.
This wrapped-in-foil delight is the Kreatopita ($10). It consisted of meat mince in puff pastry, however there were parts of the insides that was straight dough. For this, it loses a point. A further point is lost for the price.
This Salmon Roll ($14) with smoked salmon, capers, baby spinach, red onion and cream cheese actually came with surprise avocado. Sadly the avocado was very hard and not ripe at all. The flavours were not extraordinary. It is also quite expensive. Not again.
This Chicken Schnitzel Sandwich ($14) with lettuce, tomato and a spicy mayonnaise sauce is as described on the shipping manifest. Unfortunately ours was quite unbalanced, as it seems they ran out of ingredients to extend the salad beyond half of the roll. We therefore had one side that was yum, and one side that was just dry chicken with no salads. I saw that soon after we received our meal that they had marked this particular sandwich as out of stock on the UberEats app.
The Moussaka ($14.50) was cold. How am I meant to eat this?
(UPDATE: even warmed up in the oven it was not very good)
The Bougatsa ($7.50) was a yummy dessert of filo pastry around a warm custard filling. Quite good.
This Amarena Black Cherry Tart ($4) was a nice treat for $4. The black cherry was yummy but I wish there were more.
The Salted Caramel Tart ($9.50) was pretty standard. Not bad, but $9.50?
The Orange Cake ($9) was unpredictably huge. Very dense. The densest. I didn’t really like it that much.
My partner made a sweet and kind move on my birthday to order me a repeat of our previous adventure.
The fruit tart ($7.50) was actually really nice. I loved the variety of the fruit as well as the custard filling and pastry underneath.
The strawberry cheesecake ($7) I wouldn’t order again.
The Amarena black berry tart ($4) you have heard about before.
Though they may have been born to bake, the operators of Born to Bake made some strange choices , like surprising us with unripe avocado and a cold moussaka. While they may be born to bake, I was not – I didn’t expect to have to bake my own food after it arrived.
