Magnolias @ Factory Girl, Friedrichshain
I have a new addiction. It's a dessert named Magnolia, named after the Magnolia Bakery. This is the kind of food you better don't reproduce at home in order to consume it in controlled amounts ;)
You can find it in Berlin's most crowded food-and-drink-mile around Boxhagener Platz at Factory Girl café.
It is declared as a modification of Magnolia's pudding: vanilla pudding with mascarpone, eggs and variable sweets. Creamy with some texture, it is not too sweet and comes close to Tiramisu. The presentation would be probably more appealing by serving the pudding in an extra-glass but fancy it is.
The café owner adores the cupcakes from the New York bakery but did not want to rival Cupcake Berlin on the opposite side of the street. So she recreated this dessert. The surrounding was cozy and the waiter (Hussein - fluent in Turkish) generous with extra wine and sample bites.
everyday 11 am - 8 pm.
