In the Glass
Traditional Chocolate Mousse
Burnt Traditional Creme Brulee
Burnt Pahang Chocolate Creme Brulee
Tropical Fruit Triffle
Gula Melaka Mousse
Compressed Watermelon Salad
Took a switch from the classic creme brulee and requested for Burnt Pahang Chocolate Creme Brulee. Very interesting take with velvety smooth, creamy chocolate creme brulee base, not too sweet and pairing well with the golden burnt, caramelized topping. Surprisingly well-suit our palate and doesn’t disappoint!
From the Freezer
Selections of Gelato from Whimsical
Selections of iced Chocolate Shots
Do ask for a scoop or two of gelato/sorbet from the friendly staff. They are by the famous artisanal gelato – Whimsical! These are not displayed at the dessert counter but feel free to have them. We had passion fruit sorbet and raspberry sorbet that afternoon, highly recommended by Executive Chef Rolf Knecht.
