One of the other Sugar Hits that caught our attention was from The Cortile at the InterContinental.
It’s been a while since I’ve been to The Cortile and I had forgotten that it looks like there’s an outside façade on the inside; I had also forgotten how much I liked it!
As we were seated, we were quickly attended to and before we knew it, our dessert with the wine had arrived.
I loved how each chocolate layer of this dessert was decadently sumptuous and so smooth. I also loved its Brown Brothers’ Muscat wine pairing.
This rich, chocolate-layered dessert has a secret up its sleeve: the dark cherry gelee layer. The gelee layer and the amarena cherries helped cut through the incredible rich layers of chocolate with their sweet-sour flavour. The other ace is the shards of honeycomb that added a different texture and sort of sweetness to the dessert.
I think I have a weakness for macarons – I’m forever scoffing down Linda’s macarons whenever I’m over at hers and heaven forbid if F starts to make them. That said, I adored the Bailey’s macaron. Its creamy filling was a delicious break from the decadentness of the chocolate cake.
And look at how big it is! So hectic.
This is what I’d call a Sugar Hit and a must-try for any chocolate (or macaron) lover.
