Review: Desserts at Cucina

I had an event few weeks ago, and of course this calls for a big fancy lunch, if the menu was not appealing I would have changed the venue not that it wasn’t a great experience but food counts, it was an international set menu that had a lot of seafood items, delicious, even though food took sometime to get ready and I was starving, the appetizers were extraordinary, so was the desserts, which I will conclude with in this post

 Talk about perfection, this dessert is to die for, the dates with the sauce was out of this world, ate both desserts on that dish yet none ruined the taste of the other, the mousse is so smooth and the outer chocolate layer was dark & intense, just have it, tasting it is the best way in describing it

Those crunches were fine, nothing extra ordinary but definitely a good tea companion
