Early this week, some of the Board members of our fledgling NGO met for an important meeting and we used the occasion as an opportunity to celebrate Christmas. We had an amazing lunch and a happy exchange of gifts. And this cake, which tasted like the cakes from Jo-Ni’s which I used to enjoy as a child.
Early this week I got the chance to try Banzai: the Great Teppanyaki Theater buffet restaurant across the Conrad at the MOA bayfront. I will post a complete review of my experience in the coming days. Pictured below is my dessert plate. The Coffee Jelly had more sugar than coffee and the Strawberry Shortcake was short on strawberry. Only the Creme Brulee was remotely acceptable. It looked like it needed a few more seconds under the fire but the crust, while barely visible, was there. I only wish there was more in the ramekin. The cream was only slightly thicker than the crust.
