The November Bakery
Honestly, I’m more of a chocolate lover than someone who would trip over cakes. But a friend of ours has been raving over this place for quite sometime and we finally decided to give it a try. It’s a quaint little shop located at the entrance of Tilal Mall opposite the Home Center. It was Friday at around 2 pm and there were quite a few customers at that time. Prior to going I went through their site, however, I really wish the menu had pictures.
Sometime back I would not be able to comprehend paying Kd 2.500 for a single piece of cake. Mr Bakers, Sable, La Baguette etc are the places we normally get our cakes in Kuwait and in these places you get cakes for half the prices. So it was basically curiosity that drove me to try this place. Let me add that I’ve always been a ‘Cheesecake Factory’ fan. At November we ordered the ‘Red Velvet Cheesecake‘ and ‘Rose Pistachio Cheesecake‘ (Kd 5 for two pieces). I’ve had the Red Velvet in many places like Cheesecake Factory, Caramel etc.. So I thought it would only be fair to compare similar and known flavors.
The cakes were pretty big. 1 piece would have been more than enough for my wife and I. In my opinion, they served some pretty delicious cakes even though the taste of the cream cheese was a bit strong for my liking. The Rose Pistachio cake had an intense flavor of the pistachio. However, I felt that the cake part wasn’t moist enough…I felt it was a bit grainy. Overall, as of now I think I would prefer the Red Velvet from Cheesecake Factory and Caramel to this.
