We were so unlucky to score some matcha and red velvet cookies from Scout’s Honor, but we had time to sample two desserts from Chefs Miko Aspiras and Kristine Lotilla’s Le Petit Soufflé Soft Opening Menu. We didn’t have much time, however, for a classic soufflé, which requires detailed precision and extra time to prepare. And I regret much not seeing the salted egg parfait before we decided on the French frozen pistachio soufflé with cherry griotine confiture, but on second thought, the frozen souffllé the girls shared was fabulous. I would have easily finished one whole serving. Doused with cherry preserve, the sweetness was still proper.
You’ll find lots of matcha and decadent Valrhona chocolate desserts in the menu. Ditto with parfaits and some pure custards.
Beyond classic and nouveau desserts, select savory comfort food, such as onion soup, a vegetarian soba pasta, fusion mac and foie, squid ink pasta or rice, croque madame or croque monsieur (croissant with ham and cheese, with or without egg), French toasts, of course, and some salads, comprise the short menu.
Amid all the faux foliage, the ambiance is yet refreshing — proves that green can de-stress. Or it may provoke the senses if a person has an aversion to anything fake.
