I love eating all types of pies, from sweet to savoury, from open to covered. Recently. I discovered a mouth-watering dessert in Penang, known as Tequila Key Lime Pie. This pie is made with a sweet and crunchy biscuit crust and filled with a creamy lime flavoured filling. The pie is finished with a thick layer of whipped double cream and sprinkled with tequila flavoured desiccated coconut. On my first visit to Bravo Italiano at i-Avenue, I missed this signature dessert. As it is a highly reputable dessert, I gave it a try on my second visit. It was truly a love at first bite feeling when the aromatic custard incorporates with the acidity of key lime to produce a chemical reaction with the slightly alcoholic toppings. The result is a very pleasant after taste when the mixture passes across the delicate tissues of the throat.
I re-re-visited the restaurant two days ago. Without referring to the menu, I requested for a Tequila Key Lime Pie and a cup of Long Black made from Lavazza espresso base.
