Indulging @ West 57th Street Cafe, Sungai Wang Plaza, KL



A lot of tributes have been written up about this chocolate banana cake hence out of curiousity, I tracked down this tiny cafe opened by Malaysian designer, Zang Toi just in front of the Malaysian Designers section in Sungai Wang Plaza. Although they serve local food, pastas and sandwiches and humongous looking banana milkshakes, I was determined to just try the Chocolate Banana Cake (RM8.50 with ice cream) which I have heard so much about.

It's composed of four layers of chocolate cake interspered with freshly sliced bananas. A scoop of vanilla ice cream completes the whole ensemble with lots of chocolate fudge sauce. The cake layers are fudgy and moist making it pure indulgence or perfect to get over a broken heart.

4 layers of chocolate cake? as in proper chocolate cake, or just chocolate sponge? doesn't sound hard to replicate eh...

Looks good.
(It also looks fattening but it's ok to sin once in a while, right?)

People had been complimenting the Zang Toi's cafe, but it didn't really attract me much. However, with the picture that you post here, I'm definitely going to give it a try. Picture speaks itself. Thanks

meiyen - it's so yummy!

fatboycakes - chocolate cake. I'm sure you can recreate it. The texture looks like yr flourless choc cakes.

J - yeah, too much sinning recently though.

chris - I saw quite a few people there so I guess the food is ok. Must go try their savoury items one day too.

wyejon - what a coincidence, I guess this wkend, your friend will be trying the cake out?
