Chocoletto @ Baumkuchen by Komugi, Mid Valley


Craving chocolate? Scoot on over to this sweet stop: Baumkuchen, a spin-off of the Komugi bakery-cafe chain at Mid Valley.

Baum offers a 'Chocoletto' truffle range that's inventive & tasty (these are  also available at other Komugi branches including Pavilion, Paradigm Mall, Subang, Sunway Giza & Sunway Pyramid). Our favourite might be the 'creme brulee,' featuring dark chocolate ganache with Gula Melaka, bamboo salt & vanilla.

Other combinations partner milk & white chocolate with the deliciously distinctive likes of pistachio, peppermint, passion fruit, coconut, lemongrass, blackcurrant, mango, calamansi, raspberries, peanut, black sesame & lavender.

True to its name, Baum's main speciality is its German-origin, Japanese-beloved Baumkuchen layered ring cakes that take plenty of expertise to perfect.

Varieties include 'original'-flavoured baum as well as other versions with centres of chocolate, green tea or raspberry.

The flavours prove well-balanced - clear but not cloying - while the textures are dense & moist - the evidence of their freshness - living up to the benchmark Komugi has set with its other offerings, which span mochi & macarons to Hanjuku cheesecakes.
