Since doing a pastry course, I have been on a lookout for good dessert places. It gives me a chance to discover new flavors and get ideas on new combinations. It also provides a way for me to learn dessert plating techniques for free.
When I was in Bangkok recently, I visited different cafes to give their desserts a try. One dessert place which got me curious was Mr Jones Orphanage. I have seen it packed with people. I wondered if it was the cakes or their cool design that attract customers the most. After visiting a local attraction at a mall nearby, my sister, a friend and I have thought of giving it a try. So we went.
My sister ordered camomile tea. We were surprised how huge the portion was. It was good for 2-3 people.
She also had blueberry cheesecake. It was decent enough.
I thought of sharing tea with my sister as I knew she wouldn't be able to drink it all up. I changed my mind when I saw passion fruit sponge on the menu. The tartness of the cake would go well with chocolate milkshake. Nice combo. And that's what I decided to get.
A friend had some fruit shake called Made of Love. He loves berries which was why he ordered this. This one was too rich even for him.
