We all chase the dream. Whatever it may be. 

When Venus and I met Farah, who had quit her job to pursue her dream of baking, it made me realize how far we’ve all come from the young, fresh faced college students we’d been. Here we were, Venus with her daughter, Farah – who’d opened up this darling little bake shop in the recesses of Taman Tun, and yours truly, stuck in a time warp of sorts. 

Souka is a half-shop bakery besides it’s main shop Mukha, which deserves a whole other raving review on its own, but considering my love for dessert, it’s Souka that really had my attention. 

The cakes are limited and very popular it seems – there were already a few empty slots on the display when I had a quick look at 3pm on a weekday, and there seemed to be a steady stream of customers coming and going. 

It was hard to make up my mind between the blueberry cheesecake and the Mars Bar cheesecake, which had been inspired by Melbourne’s fondness for that particular dessert. Venus and I finally settled for the Mars Bar cheesecake, which was creamy, smooth and complemented perfectly by the crunchy base. Naturally it’s a little on the sweet side – but you do not order a Mars Bar cheesecake unless you expect a little sweetness. 
Everything in the shop is homemade and smells absolutely amazing, and Farah spends many hours toiling over her creations.

  1. You didn't take me there when I was home. Is it new?

  2. It's fairly new - about six months old I think?
