We sat down for lunch, and bought take-away desserts this time around. Y4eOWF1394868388


For lunch we decided to have the bacon and caramelised onion quiche with salad and the john scroll. Everything was absolutely divine. The salad was one of the best I have had in a while. The highlight was the sweet juicy pears shaved into the rocket, so there is sweet and salty bursts of flavour in your mouth as you tucked into the well dressed salad. I loved the caramalised onion in the quiche, and the pastry was light, crumbly and melt-in-your-mouth. The john scroll also never fails to impress with the oozey egg yolk center as you cut into it.


pRLCvW1394869990For the take-away desserts we had:

  • berry mousse cake
  • pistachio and honey mousse cake
  • strawberry fields forever tart
  • custard tart
  • little petite fours and
  • chocolate eclair

Berry mousse cake – the bottom is a cake base, TljhV51394870111but a little denser than a sponge cake, more like an almond meal consistency, the sweetness of the base balances the berry mousse which has a great sweet but tart taste to it. Really like the fresh strawberries on top, not a huge fan of the white chocolate, but that is very minor. Freeze dried strawberries around the cake are a nice texture touch.

Pistachio and honey mousse cake – loved the tiny RYaPVP1394870303pistachio marshmallow cubes. This was the sweetest cake out of the ones I tried this time around. But a great balance of flavours. Reminds me a little of a modernised Greek dessert. Pistachio cake base, honey mousse and honey jelly layer on top. The pistachio nuts on the top are a bit salty which counter the sweetness on your tongue. Great dessert.


Strawberry fields forever tart – The pastry shell is really, light, thin and buttery. The filling is what makes this tart stand out. It is extremely light, not too sweet, and melts on the mouth, with a hint of champagne. I think it also has a champagne thin jelly layer on top of the tart. Goes well with the fresh tartness of the strawberry. It surely does not taste like a dense, sickly sweet custard you can sometimes find in not so good fruit tarts.

Still my favourite dessert, the custard is ux1ENo1394870217lovely, creamy, but not too heavy. Light, thin, crumbly but crispy tart shell. The stand out for this is that it remains not too sweet, but definitely satisfies my sweet tooth craving.


The mini petite fours were lovely, as expected. 5ic4Du1394870044

Chocolate Éclair – I have to state up-front. Not a fan of éclairs typically. Mainly because I don’t like the custard filling. But this is very well done. Shoe pastry was great, nothing to fault. Custard was light and not too sweet. And the hard chocolate top gave a nice texture to the dessert.

Finally … the rosemary, potato and truffle bread – highly recommend this. You can smell it even before you get it home and take it out of the bag. Delicious on its own or just with a little bit of butter.
