Although the array of cakes at the entrance looks tempting, our second order was Banana and Mango Crumble, which we thought it might be a refreshing alternative.
So far, I have come across a couple of streusel-topped desserts with only 2 leaving a deep impression, namely the Strawberry Vanilla Streusel Cake from the Line @ Shangri-la and Granny Smith & Aloe Vera Crumble from Mykii. What makes these 2 good is the light and crunchy strusel toppings with a good mix of fruits.
P.S. cafe has its crumble warm, not overly sweet and of the right texture. However, the mangoes were sliced too thickly and were pretty fibrous, thus the fruits fails to have the "melt-in-your mouth" effect.
Don't ask me about the bananas, I was talking to the duty manager when Yuan finishes the entire dessert so I didn't get to eat the bananas.
Anyway, during the conversion with the duty manager, I understand that this dish has received a number of feedbacks particularly the use of mangoes. P.S. cafe wanted something different from a conventional apple crumble and thus they have sticked to this recipe and have been pretty well-received.
The Banana and Mango crumble is really a unique combination for the adventurous. However I must warn readers that mango really isn't suited for a crumble. Mango is simple too smashy when baked. Further I really dislike the spice taste on the crumble.
