As promised, here comes my review on MADbites Cafe which is located inside the Peugeot Showroom of Gadong roundabout. I have always wanted to go to the said cafe but I couldn’t find any companion to go with as not all of my friends have a thing for sweet desserts. Not that I am a huge fan of sweet desserts but I have always wanted to try out new things. So after my dinner with Seng Yee and Kaylie at Sushi Tei the other night, we went straight to MADbites Cafe for desserts.
It took me quite long enough to figure out exactly the location of MADbites Cafe. But thankfully, I wasn’t the one driving to the said cafe the other night. I was kinda lazy to drive the other day so I had Seng Yee to be my driver of the night. LOL!
So, here comes the pictures of the cafe as well as their desserts …
MADbites Cafe is located at the far end corner of Peugeot Showroom. The dining area was well equipped with comfy chairs or sofa. The ambiance was cozy in my opinion. They don’t have loud music on play, hence making catching up session pretty comfortable and relaxing. I don’t like cafes which have music blaring loudly from their speakers as if they are opening a karaoke lounge or maybe a pub.
Fresh Fruit Tart | B$4.80
The filling was made out of custard cream. I quite like the texture of their custard cream. It was smooth and light. The taste of custard was not too strong and it came with a little bit of milky taste. The pastry itself was not stiff and not overly sweet as well. I am not a huge fan of pastry myself but this was good enough for my liking.
Macarons | B$10 for 6 pieces
I am sure everyone know what are macarons by now. Macarons originated from France and for those of you who doesn’t enjoy sweet desserts, this may not be something that you would like. I myself is not someone who could stand overly sweet desserts well but I still gave them a try. A piece of macarons is B$2.00 but you can get them at B$10 for 6 pieces. We had Salted Caramel, Minty Chocolate, Coffee, Orange Chocolate and Blueberry.
My personal favorite among them all was Coffee. At first, I was extremely interested with their Salted Caramel but it turned out to be extremely sweet for my liking. Hence, a big no no for Salted Caramel to me. B$2.00 may sound steep for a piece of macarons. But if you notice carefully, the size of their macarons are bigger than any other bakery selling macarons.
Malibu Sunrise | B$4.00
Cappuccino | B$3.50
On the side note, MADbites Cafe is offering 20% during this Ramadan season but macarons are not included in the promotional discount deal. If you had been wanting to try out MADbites Cafe, why wait?
