In one word: Delilah
A strange one word summary you may think, but let me explain. Luckily I didn't go too far out of my way to get this vanilla slice, I was in the area and had read a good review on Cafe Lucchini and in particular their vanilla slice. Needless to say, when I saw, purchased then attempted to eat said slice, the famous Tom Jones song resonated through my skull. "Why, why why?" How could anybody think this is good? I should have known from its pale and slightly sad appearance that this slice would be all cream and tasteless...and indeed it was. A nondescript and vanilla-less cream spurt out the sides when bitten and the pastry tasted like cardboard at best; dry and flavourless. After a couple of sorry bites I threw the rest away and counted my blessings that I only spent $3.80 and no more on it. My final thought...How can a vanilla slice be so called if there is no vanilla in it?
