Take a ruler and measure. Alright, it is indeed small. The Japanese bakery has indeed attracted many office working population to its outlet at the ICON village ever since the shift there. Btw, it is probably the only outlet at ICON which I always notice that has a queue at its door at lunch hours. The cakes were expensive but it was the quality and taste of the cakes that made customers return for more.
The generous amount of strawberries on the cake was the lure and there was more. The sponge was good, it was fine. A thin layer of mascarpone was spreaded between the layers, giving the soft sponge the sweet tinge. My only dislike of the cake was the charred almond crust. Some like it, some don't.

Lotus Soup @$8/pax
It has an auspicious name for it as well but couldn't remember the 4 chinese words. “哈哈大笑” or what....couldn't really remember. Anyway, the manager pointed out that the prawns were more expensive for the CNY. Not taking his words into consideration, we ordered prawns anyway simply because we wanted to eat prawns. And indeed, it was very much more expensive. This dish cost $68, which meant the 6 prawns on the plate were indeed levelled up in price. But, I liked the small "abalone", made like the cold dish topshell, pretty appetizing.
Tea and camphor wood smoked duck
Tofu with mushrooms
We also had the Hong Kong style steamed soon hock @$120. The manager had it mutated before I could even take a decent photo of it. But, it was simply delicious. The fresh fish meat simply melted in my mouth.
