I was having a bad food month last year – a hard hit as I don’t have that many misses for a meal. After that I decided to go back to my old favourites where I knew they would be good. Of course one of them was Steven Ter Horst (post number 5) and the review below is a combination of 2 visits.
Homemade Pineapple Iced Tea – white tea, pineapple, lime & orange ($7.50)
Rose you were so pretty with your elegantly topped wisp of white chocolate and rose petal encased in a crumbly shortbread pastry. Biting into the almond sponge bottom, red berry jelly and dollops of light rose mousse all I could taste was strawberry jam. Sadly I’ve never been a big jam fan. Rose is one of my favourite flavours so I was a bit sad that I couldn’t taste much of it.
Cute as a button Papple was a dome shaped cake filled with a cheesecake mousse, whipped caramel and poached apple; layered with a almond jaconde bottom and topped with a little apple stem :) Tasted like a light version of an apple pie which was really refreshing.
M being a lover of chocolate made us have to choose all things chocolate. So for this second visit we shared the Nuts About Chocolate that tasted like a fancy Ferrero Rocher and the Salted Caramel Tart with a revamped look. It’s been too long salted caramel tart. A thick layer of chocolate ganache that would satisfy every chocolate lover’s dream but it doesn’t stop there. Plunging into a sticky salted caramel layer and a buttery shortbread pastry makes it a simple but perfect dessert.
Salted Caramel Tart and Nuts About Chocolate
It’s hard to find a place that consistently does awesome desserts but I think I feel in love again with the salted caramel tart. Life is good.
