It may not be the most visually stunning of cakes, but don't let the sparse presentation fool you: this Kueh Salaat Cake ($63) is one of the tastiest kuehs out there! The Nonya classic is usually sold in small slices at other bakeries, but Chalk Farm does a supersized version of it — which actually makes celebrating with a kueh cake possible! This two-layered dessert is perfectly executed here — the sturdy pandan custard is velvety-smooth and intensely fragrant, while the steamed glutinous rice is moist and sticky, mixed with pea flower extract for that distinctive, beautiful cerulean blue. Even the older generation will find this immensely satisfying!
*Whole cakes have to be ordered four days in advance
