"These are the cutest macarons I have ever seen. There are many flavours such as Nutella, cookies and cream, strawberry and white grape. The macaron shells are crisp and smooth, while the filling is soft and chewy. My only concern is that they are too sweet for frequent consumption, so eat it sparingly."

BABY EGGPLANT WITH DONBURI SAUCE

SQUID INK RISOTTO
"I've always been a fan of squid ink and this squid ink risotto with seafood finished with butter and shaved Grana Padano did not disappoint. It has the right combination of colour, texture and flavour. The risotto is really rich, robust and complements the fresh seafood well."
