The Cake Club by Diamond Hotel at Bonifacio High Street

Thursday, May 03, 2012

Dining at The Cake Club by Diamond Hotel at Bonifacio High Street in BGC Taguig is like getting in touch with one's childhood dream of entering the world of saccharine treats, yet, with a mature and sophisticated flair.  An addition to the posh line of restaurants at Bonifacio Global City The Fort, particularly Bonifacio High Street, The Cake Club by Diamond Hotel is set to offer sublime dishes and delectable desserts meant to satisfy discerning palates. 

While signature cuisines and delicacies of Diamond Hotel served at The Cake Club are proved to be noteworthy, it is the line up of their best selling cakes that take the spotlight.  And to complete the ultimate sweet experience they give to their customers, The Cake Club also offers luscious homemade ice cream of different flavors!

Our recent dinner at The Cake Club Bonifacio High Street was a saccharine overdrive which left a big smile on my face even days after.  Having tasted 10 of their best selling cakes and 10 best selling homemade ice creams after a hearty dinner was the best kind of initiation to any club there is.

The night started with a dinner right before the feast of desserts. The menu for main dishes I find rather limited, but knowing how serious Diamond Hotel is when it comes to their food, I know it is a good line up. For starter everyone shared servings of Truffled Fries which aroma and taste lingered on our nostrils and palate in a very pleasing way.  I had Caramelized Onion and Goat Cheese Tart Salad which can be considered a meal in itself for someone who has small appetite. And since I am not one of those who possessed small appetite, I had Lamb Burger, a Moroccan spiced lamb patty with feta, Parmesan cheese, and Harissa yogurt for my main dish.

After the savory dishes were devoured, the ride to saccharine overload begins. Everything on their pastry selections looks tempting enough to want them all at once. And that was what we just did.

Le Royale, is a signature cake of Chef Pang Kok Keong made of Valrhona dark chocolate mousse, almond meringue, and hazelnut crispy.  It's name couldn't be more apt since this cake's luscious and rich taste is so luxurious to the palate.  Reputed to be the richest and cheesiest in the metro, The Cake Club's Baked Cheesecake is their signature cheesecake known to many.  It is dense, rich, and cheesy which made it to my list of favorite cheesecakes.

The Cake Club's Frasier resembles to that of Strawberry Shortcake although way better.  I love the use of fresh strawberries combined with the rich and creamy component of the cake.  Supermoist Chocolate Cake is another best selling cake of The Cake Club.  It is very different from the usual chocolate cake because the structure composed of mostly chocolate ganache which isn't overwhelming at all.

Mont Blanc is one of my favorite among the selections. Made with fresh chestnut paste, Chantilly cream, prunes soaked in dark rum on almond tart. It is the type of pastry that I wouldn't mind eating with my afternoon tea. The taste of the chestnut paste and the cream blends perfectly well, and the hint of rum on prunes gives it interesting flair.  When we were told that Danielle is sugarless cake, I couldn't believe it. Made with white chocolate and raspberry, it was the best sugarless cheesecake I've had by far.

If I were to describe The Cake Club's Ispahan, I would say it's a beautiful cake with playful and sneaky taste. Bite into it and you would instantly recognize the raspberry taste on it. Dig further and you will be greeted with the lychee that contributes to the flavor, but the lingering taste is what I find rather hard to recognize at first taste. Not because there's not enough of it, but because its taste is so sneaky, meant to just flirt with your palate while devouring it, but at the end, it is the taste that lingers playfully on ones palate.

Cecilla is The Cake Club's version of Buko Pie made by Chef Robert Memphin. Its taste is very luxurious and mild at the same time. The Buko is not overpowering and the cream lends a beautiful taste that made this pastry worth trying.

Another addition to my favorite is Vanessa. Pistachio Macaron with fresh slices of strawberries. It is beautiful to look at and pleasing to the palate. The blending of the pistachio cream and the innate sweetness of the berries was simply sublime.  St. Honore Ube is named after French patron saint of bakers and pastry chefs, Saint Honor.  If you are the type who enjoys purple jam, this one will surely satisfy your palate.

Each mini cake is priced at Php250 while the big sized is at Php1,500. The Cake Club's famous Ube Ensaimada is also available at Php120 a piece.

Our Feast!
Aside from the cakes we also get to feast on different flavors of homemade ice creams.  They have wide variety of selections such as Genmaicha (green tea with roasted brown rice), Black Sesame, Taro-Jackfruit, Melon, Supermoist Chocolate Cake, Baked Cheesecake, Azuki (Japanese Red Bean), Mont Blanc, and Apple Pie. Of the many flavors we have tried, it was the Black Sesame, Apple Pie and The Baked Cheese Cake variant which I find rather pleasing.

The Cake Club Ice Creams are priced at Php150 per 2 scoops, Php350 a pint, or Php1,000 for half a gallon.

The cakes and the ice creams we have feasted on were enough reason for me to go back at The Cake Club, not to mention the other interesting dishes included on their menu. The first time I have tried GN's Salad was during the time we visited Hotel Diamond's satellite restaurant Astralis located at Rockwell. It's one of the salad I wouldn't get tired of eating because of its distinct taste and crispy Parmesan basket holding the greens. While I love the Caramelized Onion and Goat Cheese Tart Salad I had, GM's is also worth having again on my next visit.

I was able to taste their Slow Roasted Beef Belly which fellow foodie Mhel shared with everyone and I love it.  The meat was very succulent and it hinted of how it hoarded flavor during the roasting period.

Since I am big when it comes to crepe, I find Porcini Mushroom Crepe interesting. It composed of Porcini Mushroom, Parmesan and Emmental cheese in light cream sauce.

US Angus Beef Burger is already interesting and tempting in itself, but it's the red colored bun that makes it rather different from every other Angus Burger I have ever seen. My friend Roch told me that it was good so I would probably try this next time.

Another dish I find interesting is the Mediterranean crusted Baked salmon with saffron risotto. I have been enjoying eating risotto lately so I will definitely go back to try this one as well.

Baked Salmon (Php455)
Aside from savory dishes, pastries, and ice creams, The Cake Club carries Royce Chocolates, fine selections of wines, teas, and coffees hailing from France. These products are strategically located at both side of the front section of the restaurant, and in between is the cake bar where the beautiful cakes were displayed and adored.

The Cake Club by Diamond hotel offers the best of both world. From good savory dishes to sublime desserts, one cannot go wrong dining here if good quality complete meal is what you are looking for.  It can be a good place to meet up family, friends, and colleagues for a wonderful bonding over great food.
