Came in with Hudds at 10pm! Just for desserts

This is the most mind-blowing experience i have had sitting through a meal.

ESCAPADES



Amuse
Best amuse i have ever had.
So attention to detail. The blueberry parfait with greentea Cream. (yes i mentioned Greentea cream!), basil foam (if im not wrong), lychee segments
**brings 24 year old me back to my childhood eating gummy bears but in a different texture. Surprise after surprises leaves me smiling to myself.


Coffee cake, ricotta, maraschino, chicory ice cream
"our least favorite of the lot. The Chicory icecream is perfect. Texture is so smooth. The coffee cake we felt had too much gelee. Made the texture slightly unpleasant."


Yogurt parfait, pine, apple, pineapple
"Second favorite to the creamsicle (which was blogged earlier). So many different textures of the apple family it was delightful. It blew us away. A winner.
For a minute i felt as though i was in the tropicanas by the beach basking in the sun drinking my cocktail. Hudds felt the maldives. Guess the chef succeeded!"



Soft chocolate, avocado, licorice, lime
"An art piece. playing with the different textures once again. The avocado and lime compliments the chocolate well. I stayed put"



White chocolate cream, black sesame, argan oil, carrot
"I had to try this because a chef once told me. It is not easy to use argan oil and he wanted to see how Alex uses it. (This nutritious oil comes from the nuts of the Argan tree. The production of this oil is a demanding and laborious process by hand).
The different textures of the black sesame and white choc was awesome. The carrot lacks something zesty though. maybe kalamansi or ginger?
This time i was brought to a dark japanese forrest. This dessert brings out sadness and life. Am i going too far? =) "
