Old entries are here, here, here and here.
Peach compote, with honey ice-cream and blueberry sauce. This is heaven(*o*). The peach was simmered in red wine, bottom layer was peach ice-cream with a mousse texture, even the cookie was delicious.
The chef went on a TV competition show and he made the luxurious version of this but he lost to the other guy...quite a surprise cos I thought this one was definitely higher standard. Anyway, due to his increasing publicity, his tiny dessert eat-in space always has a long waiting line which kinda puts me off. Luckily my friend, who is a BIG fan of this place, didn't mind going with me so we went there after lunch. Both of us were expecting a line and prepared to wait, but there was no one waiting!! So happy!! Happier than winning a lottery!! (^^;;) Even happier still, after we enjoyed our desserts rather speechlessly, the chef himself came out and gave us free cherries!! He even talked with us for a while and he told us that he was going on another TV program where he will have to make a jumbo-size souffle in a camp and he is going to pick the berries from a field himself(^^;;).
Toshi Mandel Krone. An almond cream pie to take away, so delicious as well!
