Just in time for their seasonal flavour, I got my taro cravings settled at Simple Cafe recently!

For their Yam Swiss Roll 芋泥卷 ($7/slice), the pairing of the elements was none too sweet. The cream tasted real light and fresh - I liked that it didn’t overwhelm the palate and the other ingredients as the flavour was mild. The sponge was decently soft too. And thinking that the yam flavour might be less pronounced due to the amount of yam filling, I am glad that I was mistaken as the yam puree found embellished atop and in the center of the roll had a great “yam-y” flavour. There was a pleasant medley of textures from the desiccated coconut and yam chunks as well.
