Creativity is taken to a new level at Forêt Blanc Pâtisserie, where the ordinary waffle is given a twist and served on banana leaf with chutneys.
The Banana Leaf Waffle V2.0 @ RM24.90 contains a vade waffle, tomato chutney, mint chutney, yogurt ta-yir sauce, mango curry chantilly with mango cubes and chopped chili and their homemade coconut ice cream with rice cracker. That’s a long list of ingredients so it would take them at least 10 minutes to plate this dessert.
Since this is Banana Leaf Waffle V2.0, surely you realize that V1.0 existed. Besides the presentation, the other main difference lies in the ingredient used to make the waffle. Previously, chai spices are used but they have been substituted with vade (traditional Indian savoury snack) instead.
The texture of the waffle is dense yet delightfully chewy in the middle and goes well with any of the accompaniments. But our favorites had to be the tomato chutney and coconut ice cream. The portion is huge and it’s meant to be shared. So try this with at least a friend or two.
The stunning Yuzu Garden @ RM23.50 incorporates the unique flavor of yuzu in the form of ice cream and creme brulee. They sit on a base of green tea sable and green tea microwave sponge accompanied by yogurt honey sauce and rum coulis. This dessert is all about celebrating textures, tangy and citrus flavors in every bite.
If you want to bring a smile to somone’s face, the Happy Polar @ RM24.50 will be perfect. This adorable looking dessert resembles a polar bear just chilling with snow balls feeling like there’s not a single worry in the world.
Pretty much everything that makes up the dessert (yogurt lime ice cream, lime curd, pineapple lime macaron, lime mashmallow & jelly) is homemade and flavored with a touch of lime. It’s so cute we actually felt bad eating it.
For those who intend to drop by just for a simple after meal dessert, the options include homemade cakes from the display chiller and single scoop ice creams. Shown above are the Coco cake (Mango Passionfruit with Coconut) @ RM12.90 and Brown Butter and Cempedak flavored ice creams @ RM9.50. The cempedak one was really good, aromatic with a nice fleshy texture of the fruit.
