The Pacific Marketplace is an eatery on the ground floor of the Pan Pacific Hotel, Marina Bay. Hotels are notoriously expensive for dining, but the Pacific Marketplace is a way to dine at a more reasonable price without breaking the bank.
Offering a variety of local and international dishes, the cafe also serves high tea and has a wonderful patisserie. During our stay we tried the patisserie on a few occasions and were very happy with the standard and presentation of cakes.
Chocolate fudge cake, carrot cake, banana cheesecake, black forest gateau, key lime tart:
Salted caramel eclair, manjari cafe(coffee) gateau, matcha lychee gateau, gula melaka:
Strawberry cake and blueberry cheesecake:
These are the cakes that we tried:
Salted caramel eclair – wonderfully smooth caramel filling where the salt flavour came through, beautifully tempered chocolate and dreamy ganache. Very very nice.
Chocolate fudge cake. A really lovely chocolate hit without being too sickly sweet.
Key lime tart. Beautifully presented and delicate. It could have taken a bit more lime flavour, but was still very good.
Carrot cake. Pleasant and good carrot flavour, but could have had a better cake to carrot ratio in the mix.
All in all, this is a beautiful top end patisserie, and I recommend Pacific marketplace for a stunning afternoon tea.
