La Bibliotheque

La Bibliotheque: Round Two. Earlier entry: April 8.

Most customers come here for pub grub and booze, but the cakes deserve an honorable mention. These sweet sensations include exceptionally rich, alcohol-laced ones, such as this white & dark chocolate cake with moist, plump raisins soaked overnight in rum.

American chocolate cake layered with bitter chocolate and enhanced with Cointreau liquor. Cakes don't get much creamier than this.

This cheese cake would be delicious even if it were purely plain, but the topping of caramelized cashew nuts adds a lovely crunch that takes it to the next level.

Tiramisu sponge cake brushed with coffee syrup and layered with mascarpone cheese filling & grated chocolate, then coated with almond praline.

Triple-layer chocolate mousse (white, milk & dark). Wonderfully soft and smooth, but here's a lesson to remember: five slices of cake might be too much for two people to share in one sitting.

La Bibliotheque,
Avenue K, Jalan Ampang, Kuala Lumpur.


  1. Five slices of cakes for two people, a bit much? I guess that depends on how much the two of them had for dinner (or dinners, knowing one of the diners in question) before dessert... :P

  2. omo, did you order that all in one go?

  3. LOL! 5 is too much even for me!
    Really Sean.. your dinners/meals is crazy ;p
    But thks fr sharing! Even as a desserts lover i wouldnt have expected here, of all places, to have decent desserts! wonder where they get their cakes from?

  4. lfb: ahhh, and in this instance, dessert didn't even mark the end of dinner! no, sirree! :D
    michelle: yep, eaten in the span of 30 minutes =)
    tng: yaa, i wanted to ask the staff where the cakes were from, but most of them seemed too busy, and the others seemed a bit, ermm, blur, heheh :D

  5. lfb: and drank more, of course! the problem with eating too much sweet stuff is that it makes you crave savory food immediately :D

  6. Excuses, excuses. You just wanted to drink. And eat. Some more. (Hence your rather appropriate blog title.)

  7. lfb: oh yes, i can imagine starting an evening at matsuba and then moving on to ikkyu before calling a night! (not sure if they're within walking distance, but driving distance should be easy enough) :D

  8. Hey, how can you forget about Sanuki Udon? We totally have hit it for the complete Taman Desa Japanese Food Experience! :D

  9. Woah! Death by Cake! Was that all you had for dinner?

  10. lfb: once at sanuki udon is enough to last a lifetime! heheh :D
    qwazymonkey: thank heaven we're still alive and kicking! we managed to have some drinks and savory snacks after that, but no more dessert! :D
