At last night's Sunday dinner, we had a taste test of the lemon crunch cake from Diamond Head Grill (DHG) versus the one from The Alley (TA..Aiea Bowl).
(Apparently the chefs at TA worked under Chef Kelvin Ro (who owns DHG), the recipes are ones that Chef Ro and the TA chefs came up with when they worked together...)
We also threw in the carrot cake from DHG and the pumpkin crunch from TA, just for extra "tastings".
The cake from DHG was very moist and light (almost like a chiffon cake) with lots of lemon flavor (bottom left).
The one from TA, dense and almost no lemon flavor (top left). It looks almost dry.
We'll be getting the one from DHG for an event later on this month.
