A Hidden Find

If you have been thinking about dining in a bistro with an tranquil ambience without paying a bomb, Buttercake Cream at Sunset way may fits the bill. Hidden in the neighbourhood estate, Buttercake Cream Business's tagline - let the magic begin had really brought up another level of dining experience amongst the neighborhood eateries.


Shop Front

 One can actually choose from their Alfresco Dining or to have a table in the shop. While I had chosen the latter, the ambience did not fail to disappoint. It was cosy under the warm lighting with decorations well prepared for christmas somehow, triggered the festive season mood in me especially when I saw those hanging christmas ornament balls.

Alfresco dining was not bad either, one can enjoy the serene view of the trees settings which I find it rather unique considering dining in a neighbourhood.

Counter
Furnishing in the shop was simple with painted brick walls and cement screed flooring. Environment was relaxing given a different feel with the reflective mirrors and bright hanging ceiling lamps included.
 Seating & Ambience

Cocktail of frizzy soda, lime and bitters.

Their Sauteed Mushrooms had prepared the seasonal button mushrooms with wine, herbs and onions.

Filled with buttery fragrance, this dish is served with 2 crispy garlic toasts, a definite appetizer to kick start the upcoming tantalizing dishes!

While Pan Seared Cod Fillet was not available, I took the salmon Steak as an alternative. The Char Grilled Norwegian King Salmon was served with baked potato in creamy seafood ginger sauce topped off with some bacon bites. A portion of sauteed vegetables were also available under the slab of delicious salmon
  Main - Salmon Steak - $16
 
Grilled to golden brown, crispy at the exterior and moist internally. How can I ever resist?

Potato was wrapped with aluminum foil with with top exposed. The skin of the potato literally tore off easily without much effort and the potato was soft.

Tiramisu is a definite must try over here. The cake was rich, soften with every bite that melts into your mouth. Every layer of the cake was well defined. Simply exquisite!

The decorations on the plate was also meticulously prepared with some colorful icing. Look at the heart shape on the Tiramisu, the love of the dessert had been well expressed!
Cost: $5.50

After taxes (Service Charge), our total bill was $60.94. Patrons are able to save up 7% off the total bill as GST was omitted. However 10% of Service Charge are still required, such amount paid for their attentive and friendly service was worth while. All in all, with such pricing and its environment, I dont mind having more return trips to Buttercake Cream.
