As pretty as it looks, this dish was really good too. The flavours really complemented each other really well. The nutty taste of the black sesame mousse, the buttery taste of the sable tart (like a shortbread) the salty miso caramel cuts through the heavy ness of the other components.

Individual components:
The mousse was light and sesame wasn’t over powering.
The matcha sponge tho, could afford a stronger matcha taste.

Overall a really light but tasty dessert and though it’s on the pricier end, it’s usually the case for desserts like this

Heaven for any chocolate lover 🥰
We ordered an affogato with 75% choc and the 88% chocolate ice cream bar with the 80% chocolate.
Both the ice cream was rich and not too sweet which went really well with the sauces!

The affogato option came with coffee and some salted caramelised almonds. The coffee was more to the acidic side (I prefer bitter coffee) which brought another flavour profile to the sweet, bitter, salty dessert. Pretty interesting but acidic coffee not really my thing.

The 88% chocolate version tho. It’s very rich but it was not cloying. I love bitter less sweet chocolate and this is it. wow I would go back for that.

On a side note, the aunty that served us was so friendly! Great service !

Interesting flavours for pie!
The strawberry lemon pie was very refreshing and unlike most of your usual pies which are sweet and far from acidic. This pie could be a little too sour for those who do not appreciate sour dishes. However, it was just right for me as the torched meringue neutralised the sourness from the filling. The pastry tho was not as buttery or flaky as I had hoped for. For the pumpkin pie, it does not have a strong taste when you first bite into it. The sweet potato kind of taste only comes in after a while. For the accompanying cream, you could see black specs and that’s because they use real vanilla to make it! Pretty good effort!

On a side note, because of the virus, we weren’t able to eat in the store and had to find some table nearby to consume the pie

Ordered 4 eclairs and our personal favourite was the ispahan. The flavours of rose, lychee and raspberry were pronounced and was an interesting twist to the usual eclairs we know of. We also ordered berry (and lemon cream I think), earl grey and rose&lychee eclairs. They were not overly sweet and we could easily down many at one seating.

However the pastry was not the best. It was a little soggy and the eclairs were pretty pricey

Would go back when we feel rich. This is definitely not an everyday thing.
