Not many bakeries can boast of producing gluten free desserts and home made cheese. But Dolce Tonino, situated at the Tonino café does. And it does that with Italian elan.
Carrot cake: The mellowness of this spongy cake is unparalleled! The sweet flavour of the grated carrots along with the subtlety of grated coconut transforms you into heaven! Add to this the light icing – HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Coffee caramel cake: Never knew that the combination of bitter coffee and smoky caramel could blend in so seamlessly! And let us not forget the sponginess of the gluten free beauty! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Cheese platter: You know you are in for a roll when a variety of in house made cheese is being served to you. The pungent cheddar, the milky provolone, the smoked gouda cheese and cheddar fermented to a higher degree.
Grilled vegetables and cheese Panini: The Panini breads are freshly baked, crunchy and airy and I bet that you would not find such lovely texture in the ones from the usual delivery outlets. And the filling of grilled juicy vegetables – aubergine, bell peppers, mushrooms and zuchhini in a rich layer of fine textured cheese is scintillating. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Grilled mushroom and cheese baguette sandwich: The sole presence of mushroom with cheese is not very impressive. The baguette breads are slighty chewy.
Grilled vegetable croissant sandwich: Vegetables and cheese are in a good shape but the croissant could have been more flaky and light instead of clightly chewy. RECOMMENDED.
Lemon Meringue Tart: Whenever and wherever I have this dessert in Delhi, I am utterly disappointed. But Dolce Tonino surprised me with this light sweet ensemble. The meringue is subtle, airy and lemony on a brittle tart bed which is easier to dig into. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
