Back in March this year, Zen and I had dinner at the James Squire Restaurant. I remember feeling very agitated... this being fuelled by the slow service, stiff wooden chairs and my grumbling stomach. Our order was a little overpriced and lacked the extra 'oomph'. However, ordering the desserts was a battlefield in my mind! I was tempted with the Warm Caramelised Pear & Ginger Cake with Honey Fig & Ginger Ice-Cream... all my favourite flavours tumbled in one! But in the end, I ordered the Coffee Brulee. It was rich, awakening and very creamy.
