Raspberry Panna Cotta

I first tried this dessert with my best friend at Vivocity in 2009. And it was literally “love at first bite”. For a person who cannot appreciate milk or its taste, this dish sure won me over. The Italian custard, comprising mostly of cream, is smooth, velvety and silky. Just like tofu. Thanks to the special raspberry sauce, the dessert carries the perfect combination of milky sweet and raspberry tang to your tongue. A must-try!

Pumpkin is actually a fruit.

I always had a distant relationship with pumpkin. Its just like how you would stay away from squash or parsnip. Rare commodities that you would find on your daily meal. But this was before I came face-to-face with the fruit. Twice.

When I ordered this dessert dish to try, I honestly had no expectation. It was based on a recommendation. So, the skeptical me only took half of a piece to taste. But ho and behold, I had no idea that I would be stuffing my face with seconds. Or more than that. Baked from a pumpkin paste, the pancake possesses a mild level of sweetness from the fruit, topped off with a fine layer of icing sugar. Sweet but not too sweet. Definitely one of the best desserts I have ever tried in a Chinese restaurant.

Like I said, I was never a big fan of pumpkin, before I had the pumpkin dessert at Paradise Dynasty, so here I am having a try at another variation of the orange fruit. 

I was caught by surprise by the mild sweetness of the soup, boosted by a light tasting broth. Smooth and creamy, it not only whets your appetite but keeps you wanting for more.
