Cakes and Desserts at Lemon Tree Restaurant in Johor Bahru
Jeffrey, the boss of Lemon Tree restaurant, invited me to try their new cakes and dessert menu.
Kevin is Jeffrey's partner running the cakes and desserts side of Lemon Tree.
Kevin and Jeffrey go back a long way - they were school mates :D
After school, Kevin went to work with Lavender Bakery (a big, established chain in Johor), Angel Cakes and in Pan Pacific Hotel, Singapore where Kevin worked on Japanese desserts.
Lemon Tree's chocolate Volcano Lava Cake (RM15.90) served with a scoop of ice cream.
I love Kevin's artistic flare that went into the beautiful plating and presentation of all his cakes and desserts.
Rich with 81% chocolate, the thick warm molten dark indulgence inside doesn't ooze and flow like liquid lava but it sure made our saliva gush when the luscious bitter-sweetness hit our taste buds.
Lemon Tree's Mousse Au Chocolat (RM14.90).
Rich, dense, creamy chocolate mousse on an airy, crumbly, buttery biscuit served with nutty crushed walnuts and a scoop of ice cream.
Exquisite, fine classic French dessert becomes an affordable luxury at Lemon Tree everyone can enjoy, everyday :D
Lemon Tree's Matcha Tiramisu (RM13.90).
The Matcha Tiramisu reflected the Japanese side of Kevin's journey in cakes and desserts.
Fragrant matcha green tea and creamy mascarpone cheese enveloping spongy lady fingers infused with Japanese sweet liquor.
An interesting, delightful Japanese twist to the classic Italian dessert.
Remember to ask for the cakes and dessert menu when you are at Lemon Tree restaurant.
