Oh oh oh, Christmas spirit is not dead! In some shop, you can feel it! And particularly in this German bakery called Wendel that i spotted on a hungry girl’s website and that i wanted to try. We went there to eat some cakes: delicious. It’s more the ” homemade” type, so don’t expect refined pastries, but you have delicious good cakes including rhubard pie, apple pie, marbré, chocolate cake, rasperry chocolate crumble, vanilla crumble, opera, ginger bread, Stollen, banana cake… You also have a wide range of real bread and bretzels.
Their marbré is really good, tender (happy butter!), and their chocolate cake not heavy at all despite its look. Actually i don’t know which one i prefer between Lalos and Wendel. Maybe Lalos is more refined and with a little stronger chocolate taste and a little bit drier, and this one is softer. So it’s not really the same. I love them both. Rhubard pie is not strong enough in rhubard for me, i usually like the bitterness in it, but here the pastry was to thick for it and with nuts so the rhubarb wasn’t that strong.
I couldn’t resist to buy a ginger bread (but look at it, it’s so cute, how can you possibly resist to that!). That’s my first time eating ginger bread like this (but i wanted something to remind me Christmas!) and it’s nice. The cinammon taste isn’t that strong, the biscuit isn’t too hard neither and not chewy as i was scared it would be. Nice one, but not my favorite cake ever.
The bakery can become a restaurant, so if you want to eat German that’s also a possibility.
You can count around 80 TWD for a piece of cake.
