If you fancy décor and food, stepping into Elma’s at Select City Walk is a delicious dream. It is the kind of place you want to linger after a crazy shopping spree at the mall or laze with a friend, music or a book.
You can find all sorts of nibbles here- the menu is not a duplicate of the other outlets, I must warn, though. But I am a fan of their cakes and sandwiches, so for me, it is a win-win. You get to absorb the quaint silence, beautiful things to admire (Good Earth, I’m a BIG fan) and lovely food.
My absolute favorite at Elma’s is the Chicken Coronation finger sandwiches. Sandwiched between the fluffiest, crust-less bread is the most delicious spiced mayo-ed chicken. This is served with whole-grain mustard which lends a lovely fiery kick.
To round it off, this sandwich is light in texture, with soft, creamy filling that definitely goes well with their homemade Ginger Ale (another recommendation). Next on our table was the Olive Pesto Pizza. The crust was freshly-baked and crunchy, not burnt. Basil, olive, and parmesan were profusely scattered on the base. There was use of pesto, as well. No complaints- to be honest.
Moving on to their dessert! Be warned: the cakes here aren’t ordinary; in fact, some are very hard to resist. Like their Gluten-free Chocolate Cake. Or the Pecan Pie. All of them are home-made, apparently. That’s why are absolutely delish. This time, though, we got the Salted Caramel and Butterscotch Cake.
We were fearing it to be sickly-sweet. But it wasn’t. The cake layers were moist, the butterscotch filling was on point, and that salted caramel drizzle made us do a little happy dance.
The only negative bit is the service. There are not too many people on the main deck, making you scream at a relatively silent place. Since we were splitting the bill, the attendant didn’t know how much to swipe. The boys here definitely need some kind of training.
Overall: Slow service, comfort food, mouth-watering desserts and beautiful ambience.
