The cake boasts a fusion of two citrus elements, lemon and grapefruit, with a sweet and sour taste from the lemon cream on the outside. The cake layers are infused with Japanese grapefruit particles, adding texture and enhancing the citrus flavor. That’s not all—the cake layers also include chewy mochi, adding multiple textures and layers to the cake. The coconut lava sauce complements the pandan perfectly, making it a classic combination.

For those who are interested in getting a cake, remember that a minimum 4-day advance reservation is required.
