And now, it’s time for the grand finale to the sublime symphony of flavours that is @linorestaurant $28++ three-course set lunch. I know, an earl grey tea cake is as out of place in an Italian ristorante as I would be in a room of teetotallers.⠀

That doesn’t change the fact that it’s a rather comely cake, with the pleasant pungency of the floral, fragrant earl grey tea fully flavouring & adding a vivacious vibrancy to the muted sweetness of the cake. However, the cake is a bit uneven. It was pleasingly moist for the most part, but there were some internal bits that were quite dry and kind of grainy. ⠀

Fortunately, it wasn’t an often enough occurrence to dampen my enjoyment of the cake. Besides, there’s a bountiful dollop of light whipped cream on the side. And yes, it takes this already captivating cake a whole level up with the light as air creaminess.⠀

A fitting finale to a most mellow meal in my books. Plus, housepour wines are $10++ all day every day. Bargains this good got me asking if this is the real life, or if it’s just fantasy. And if this only exists in my dreams, don’t wake me up.
