Owen Road seems to be a favourite location for cake parlours to be set up. aBite’s opening comes after Cakes Literally, which has been in business at the area for a while now.
The two-day old (on the day of our visit) cake studio used to operate as an online business which caters for weddings, birthdays and other events. The variety served that day included cakes, tarts and complimentary cookies. Tea is the only beverage here, and there are several to choose from; all of which are by Clipper Tea.
There’s two types of cheesecake available here; a creamier one similar to New York Cheesecake as well as a Tofu Cheesecake. We went for the latter which has an incredible “q”- texture which we found interesting. The base was crispy and crumbly without being too moist, and its sweetness went well with the lightness of the smooth tofu cheesecake. A really less sinful option to go for if you are in for a lighter but equally satisfying dessert.
As the owner described, the Congo Bars are Brownies done the opposite way, which is also known as “Blondies”. They essentially contained more vanilla to chocolate, and they are just crusty like any Brownie. We loved the version here; the Blondie was not fluffy like a cake but was crumbly though smooth at the same time. While Brownies can feel incredibly heavy and heaty over time, these Blondies are less sickening over time due to it being done inversely.
aBite’s variety are somewhat safe, often involving items that are common. The execution of the cakes are however decent. Prices are affordable here; the total bill for the two cakes came well under $10. Given it’s proximity to the Pek Kio Food Centre, it is an ideal location for an after-meal dessert. Would definitely look forward to trying the other cakes soon!
