Wonderful (Cake Shop)
In the complete sense of the word, I can say that I have a ‘sweet tooth’. I heard about this cake shop called ‘Wonderful’, read a couple of raving reviews on it and I could’t help myself but to get my first taste. Though they have about 4 shops (all in supermarkets), we went to the one in Jabriya located inside the supermarket. For first impressions, I liked the vibrant colors, the striped design and the way it was packaged. The cakes were served in cups which seemed pretty small (for the price), but they assured me that it is ‘Like Nothing You’ve Ever Tasted’. So, greedy me wanted to try most of the flavors. I did not let the small size bother me cause many good things do come in small packages. I think they have about 8 flavors in total. They charge Kd 1 per cup or 6 cups for Kd 5, or 12 cups for Kd 10. We went for the 6 cup deal which included the Chocolate Lava, Tiramisu, Red Velvet, Pistachio, Pink Cheese Cake and Dates & Caramel (total bill – Kd 5). We didn’t try the Mango Trifle and Basbousa.
The cakes look good and taste good, but as far as their caption ‘Like Nothing You’ve Ever Tasted‘; I think it’s a bit overstated. The quantity is pretty small (for the price) and the taste is not that unique. I’ve tried places like ‘Caramel’ and hands down, between the two, I’d go for ‘Caramel’ any day (though it may be a bit more pricey). Overall, the cakes were soft, fresh and moist, but its just that for the same amount of money there are far better options in Kuwait.
