Every meal should finish on a sweet note. It need not always be a grand creamy gateau, or a sugary tart. It could be a cup of perfectly made coffee of coffee liqueur. Dessert has been incorporated even during ancient times. Back then, they didn’t have any of our sophisticated baking or sugar craft. They would serve grapes, dates or honey. The point may very well have been to clear the palette and quite simply, to end on a sweet note.
Chinese cuisine doesn’t have the vast range of sugar and patisserie. But times are changing and you might find more of a fusion of sweet dishes on a menu in a Chinese restaurant. At Naturally Chinese, we do have a dessert menu with some delicate goodies to offer. All our desserts are selected to complement our wines and dishes. They aren’t sugary but just the right amount to hit the sweet spot. Try our house made mango pudding with a citrus coulis devised by our pastry chef Chiu, as well as our crispy and steamed custard buns (a delicate and fine pastry bun made to perfection in house). We also have a delicious chocolate cake that is paired well with vanilla ice cream (this also goes well with our liqueurs). We do serve a selection of liqueur coffees. It’s becoming more popular as they do seal a scrumptious finish to any of our meals.
Last but not least are our three flavours of ice cream/ sorbets (vanilla, chocolate and coconut). Each are absolutely simple but yet just delicious!
