I am sure most food lovers can't live without dessert. The other day, when I was watching AFC ( Asian Food Channel), the host was even commented that "dessert is a substitute for sex". In fact, research shows that eating chocolate helps to improve our mood and release stress! So, go ahead and have your dessert, but of course, don't over- indulge, !!
Last weekend we went to Zen Cafe at Mid Valley for our dessert after lunch. The cafe located at an open area of 3rd floor of the mall displayed some nice cakes, so we decided to give a try! While browsing the menu, we discovered that this is another subsidiary of Secret Recipe, oh ok...maybe a bit "high end" version of SR.
The almond brownies with ice-cream - RM7.50
With fair amount of almond flakes, not very sweet( of my taste ), the hot cake is nicely match with the cold vanilla ice-cream, good!
I tried something special, the Creme Brulee - RM 6.50
Creme Brulee is a French word. The direct translation means burnt cream. It is a dessert with rich custard base topped with a layer of hard caramel, created by burning sugar under a grill / blowtorch. It usually serves cold in individual ramekins. < From Wikipedia, the Free Encyclopedia >
The creme brulee at Zen is simple but taste good. The cold custard base is flavoured with vanilla, and I love the caramelized top, I like the crispy feeling with cold custard, is my cup of tea, not very sweet, lovely!
