Pastry: Thickish and soft, middle layer soggy 4.5/10
Presentation: Well proportioned, tall construction, lacking finesse 6.510
Value for money: $5.50 - medium/large portion, filling but forgettable 6/10
Overall score: 5.8/10
My assumptions for the slice were that the pastry’s slightly thick and pale complexion may have resulted in soggy, flavourless pastry. I was right. The pastry lacked firmness and the entire middle layer was so soggy and compacted that it was better without it. The heavy whipped cream was fine, but the custard itself ironically lacked creaminess and vanilla content. If eaten blindfolded you might be hard pushed to guess what the custard was. The portion and components had potential, but the ingredients and execution lacked.
