Chiobu: Hey, there is Rich & Good cake in the fridge.
Wise Guy: What’s that?
Chiobu: OMG, you have never heard of Rich & Good and you call yourself a food reviewer?
Wise Guy: WTH! We’re a team of food reviewers ok? We work in a team.
Many call it the best swiss roll in Singapore. After reading so many positive reviews, especially one by FoodieFC whom I esteem, the kaya swiss roll was disappointing. The “cream” was more like a jelly-form. The sponge was soft–yes–but it was nothing compared to the ethereal Japanese cakes. The kaya tasted artificial, which isn’t a bad thing; it can be delicious too. (Look at Pocky vanilla sticks.) This is about expectation management. The cake was alright and, in fact, not bad at all but really nothing mindblowing about it. If the shop were below my block, I’d buy it but I won’t travel all the way to Kampong Glam for the sole purpose of picking up, queuing for the cake.
