Cedele by Bakery Depot #1
#03-28A Raffles City Shopping Centre
“Our Food, Goodness You can Trust”, so proclaimed Cedele.
Zhi Peng and I met up for lunch at the newly opened Cedele outlet at Raffles City. Opened in a secluded corner of the shopping mall, the café was quite deserted when we made our way there. Having been to other outlets of Cedele several times, I noticed that the menu has some new additions, especially in the desserts section.
The Grilled Chicken Avocado Brie Sandwich ($14.80++) is served with lettuce and tomato on fresh oat bran bread and with a side salad. Instead of brie, I requested for the homemade coriander pesto as a replacement.
Traditionally, pesto is made with pine nuts, basil and olive oil. This homemade pesto is equally good made with coriander and I like the finely minced garlic as they provide a bite and enhance the aroma. The chicken is also succulent and juicy as it is not over-grilled.
The Sea Bass Lovers Sandwich ($15.80++) comes on wholemeal bread and a side salad. Even though the sea bass is grilled on the spot, both of us agreed that it is either not very fresh or not made to order as there is a fishy smell.
Nevertheless, I still enjoy the sandwich as I’m not overly bothered by the fishiness. Like the previous sandwich, I replaced the mayonnaise with the homemade pesto which tastes great with the sea bass. To some extent, it also helps to mask the fishy smell.
The Blueberry Maple Cake ($6++) is a moist whole wheat cake that is baked with layers of maple syrup frosting and topped with fresh blueberries. Organic unrefined sugar is used. Both of us find that the frosting tastes suspiciously like cream cheese frosting but the manager assured us that there is no cheese. I’m still quite skeptical as it really tastes like cheese and not maple syrup.
Made with whole wheat flour, this cake is also denser than regular sponge cake. Overall, I think it’s quite nice if not for the cheese-like frosting.
