Both of us agreed that the Waguri Millefeuille was the best dessert out of the three. The creamy chestnut puree atop the crisp layers of millefeuille. What's there not to like? I like that the dessert was sweet, but not overly sweet (think Tampopo Deli, which sells awesome cream puffs, but overly sweet mont blanc). My favourite-st part of the dessert was the crispy millefeuile. How does one achieve that high standard of crisp melt-in-the-mouth millefeuille texture? Mmmmmm. If I really wanted to grouse on anything about this delightful treat, I suppose the cooked chestnut sitting prettily on top could have been replaced by the authentic marron glacé, but oh well, I read that making marrons glacés is a helluva process...
Strawberry Souffle;Green Tea Opera
The Strawberry Souffle was my second favourite. The fork went through the soft silky cake studded with strawberries easily. On the first bite, the cream cheese taste was very discernible, hmmm, akin to those Japanese style cream cheese cake taste. Pleasant.
The Green Tea Opera was a letdown though. As usual with matcha chocolate pairings, the chocolate overwhelmed the delicate matcha flavour, in fact, I didn't actually tasted anything matcha-y about this cake. It was also a little drier than how I like my cakes to be.
Overall, the desserts were okay I guess, at least I can cross it off my to-go place, and not miss going back (oh well, maybe just for the chestnut dessert...) anytime soon. (:
