They say that " A party without a cake is just a meeting". But, What if there are cakes and only cakes throughout the meeting ? Then it's called as partying hard. Yes it was the new menu launch @ Smoor, Indiranagar, and Smoor made sure that we all were hit strongly by sugar rush. Excited souls all around indulging themselves into the world of happiness were the evening scenes
The new menu was expertly crafted and curated by Chef Elaine Young from Melbourne, Australia. It was a pleasant feeling to meet her and her conversations about cakes, pastries and chocolates escalated my temptations to a different level. Who doesn't love pastries ? Apple cake, smoked and spiced carrot cake, pralines, gateaux, choux pastries, rainbow cakes, travel cakes and true couverture chocolates. Cool, then the best place to indulge in these heart warming delights is of course Smoor. With five branches ( Indiranagar, Forum Mall Koramangala, UB city, Orion Mall, No 1. MG Road ) across the city, Smoor is one of the best dessert lounge which crowns everyone's bucket list.
