The Creme de marron was full of chestnut goodness but the Creme Chantily was in short supply and I wished it could be significantly less sweet.
Fortunately, it's another chestnut sweet, the Okada Roll ($8), was rational on sugar. The core was pumped up with light chestnut cream and one could inhale whiffs of eggy aroma in the pillowy sponge.
The Matcha Cake is a simple construction of green tea mousse, azuki beans and sponge. Nothing much fanciful but sends a calming effect as you plunge your fork through the soft layers and deliver a bite into your mouth.
While Okada Coffee is renowned for its chestnut sweets, there is also a few old-school dine-in only desserts like the "Hot Apple Pie" ($12). Like all the other pastries, this is also hand-made in Japan before being air flown and baked fresh in local kitchen.
This apple pie boasts a golden rich puff pastry crust that locks the moist apple filling without turning soggy. At its most ethereal state right out from the oven, it is topped with a generous scoop of vanilla ice cream and drizzles of blueberry sauce that gives it a pleasant tartness.
Sweets aside, notice that cup of coffee at the side of the hot apple pie? It's Brazil Santos Chocolate ($8.50++), a special blend of the signature Okada coffee containing a subtle acidity which I truly appreciated. It isn't any of those hot chocolate but a good solid brew with a nice bittersweet taste.
No wonder it is called Okada Coffee.
