My friends and I decided to check out this Dessert's Bar at swanky Menara Hap Seng. Since there isn't many patrons, service was quick and attentive as it's still early. Even though each time I pass by this place and it seems empty, surprisingly the patrons slowly coming in as lunch hour wore on. Other than desserts, I could smell delish Illy coffee aroma from the next table. Hopefully business could sustain here.
We shared the following desserts. First up was Mangorita (RM10.00). A mango pudding sits in a margarita glass topped with a large scoop of lemon sorbet drizzled a mango and mint sauce. Generous portion of mango cubes (since there isn't any dragon fruit that day) and half a large strawberry surrounded the pudding. The pudding doesn't tasted like those instant package stuff. The mango flavour is real and it's not too sweet! The combi with lemon sorbet made this rather refreshing.
Next came the Rum & Raisin Banana Crepe (RM8.00). The bananas were pan fried in butter and came with a generous portion of rum soaked raisins. The goey mess looked kinda sweet but it's' not. Went extremely well with the crepe. Darn... could have been better if we opted for a scoop of ice-cream on top of this! Ok I know the pic looked errmmm pathetic :p
We saw the signage that the Pannatini (RM15.00) was on a special price that day so we couldn't resist but order this. This time a vanilla panna cotta came in a martini glass, on a bed of strawberry compote. Generously topped with fresh chopped strawberries and 2 pieces of wafer biscuits. The sweet compote went extremely well with the plain panna cotta. Just like the menu said... a match made in Heaven.
I'm pretty impressed with the desserts here. They're not overloaded with sugar which is great but those with sweet tooth might complain though. I've tried a couple flavours of their ice-creams... not sweet at all which is kinda bad news for ice-creams heh :p Desserts can be less sweet BUT not for my ice-creams kekeke...
Anyway, when we were about to pay at the counter, we spied on a HSBC credit card signage. Upon enquiry, for HSBC credit card holders, they'll enjoy a free smoothie or ice-cream for purchases above RM35 (or something like that... sorry hor... my memory really failing me :(). So we have a scoop of ice-cream on the go. Very fruitful outting indeed!
