Having lived abroad for almost 30years I have had my share of "gourmet taste" and quality chocolate products (don't mean to sound pompous). The chocolate mousse, brownies and viennese torte at the American Express Bakery are to die for. Need I mention the biscotti, banana bread, health food stuff, the bread.....and I can go on. It rivals the best in the US and India in quality but at very affordable prices. I am amazed that we in Mumbai do not take pride in places like this-high quality AND affordable prices unlike many of the so called 5 star places.
Being a foodie I make it my life's agenda to find the best. I was in 7th heaven when I moved to India and found this bakery less than a mile from where I lived. I am addicted to their "Plum cake. I started taking it to the US for friends as the American version of this is called fruit cake and it is awful. Now I have turned my friends into addicts and all they want when I visit is American Express Bakery plum cake !! Wish I could get an exclusive to sell in the US as I would make a killing.
Their sandwiches are very EXOTIC and original in taste. The spicy chicken is incredibly good-if you have not tried it-GO NOW ! I was disappointed when they stopped their creme brulee but they said there was not too much of a market for it. However, I must say they have new goodies all the time.
What I am amazed at is the number of products they churn out keeping to the high standard in quality. It tells you a lot about the family and the pride they take in their legacy. Keep up the great job !
