Tiramisu at Alexis Bistro, The Gardens

My most important meal of the day is the afternoon tea break, thus I am very particular on the type of food I eat. As Mum and I were wandering around The Gardens, we saw this cafe at one corner of the 2nd floor of The Gardens. This place is definitely not a stranger to me as I had been to the Bangsar outlet before a few years back. The food is excellent and their dessert is something which I miss the most. Therefore, the highlight of today's post is the oh-so famous Alexis Tiramisu with Cognac.

The tiramisu at Alexis does not look like the normal tiramisu with layers of mascapone cheese alternating with liquored-soaked sponge fingers. This version looks slightly more interesting with loads of chunky caramelised nuts sprinkled on top of the cake. However, the main attraction of the cake is actually the brandy they use in making the dessert. Instead of kahlua and coffee liquor, cognac, a stronger alcoholic liquid is used. The presence of brandy has created wonders to the dessert and made it the tiramisu to die for.

Tiramisu @ RM16 ++

Can you see the generous amount of whole almonds on top of the cake?

The cake is served with homemade strawberry jam

Frankly speaking, I would omit the jam as it overshadows the taste of the tiramisu.

    Actually, my mum thought the same as you when the cake was delivered. I urged her to taste the 'chilli sauce' first before we ate the cake.


    Quite an unusual combination.
