I went to have my hair cut at Symmetria Salon at their new location in MJ Paterno St. in San Juan. When I was done I decided to check out the cake shop beside it called Patisserie Caroline. They had a lot of muffins, loaves, cookies and cakes. The waitress encouraged me to try their bestseller, the Calamansi Dacquoise. I was expecting crunchy meringue layered with a tart calamansi curd. What I got was a soggy, nutty cake with a sweet curd with almost no calamansi flavor. If you didn’t tell me what I was eating it was ok. But since I was expecting a calamansi dacquoise it was quite a let down.
