Yuan has been receiving recommendation of Tiramisu from all over Singapore and it is really a headache to decide where to go. We wanted to go back to Shangri-la yesterday for a slice of tiramisu and we were debating to go Da Paolo since it appears on the 50 best cakes article. In addition, Canele sounds tempting and with all the internet forums I have fished out... My head is not registering any more recommendation.
The same group of people that recommended tiramisu from tcc, suggested Ricciotti, a sister restaurant of Menotti. Alright, dinner and tiramisu at Ricciotti and so be it then...
Viola, this fits what I want. 50% proportion of finger sponge and mascarpone cheese, just like BakerZin. Some differences between the 2,
- Ricciotti has a better presentation since it is round, no uneven edges.
- The finger sponge from BakerZin has a slightly higher alcohol content
- The mascarpone cheese of Ricciotti is very much richer and creamier than BakerZin
But what is the point of comparing when I enjoyed both equally much... Both has its goodness of their own... Anyway, each serving of tiramisu costs $7.80++.
This tiramisu is one of the best when it comes to mascarpone cheese. The top layer gives you a slightly cheesy feeling rather than creamy. Further the portion of macarpone cheese and layer finger biscuit is just right thus you will not feel as though as you are having a cream cake. The finger biscuit is soft and has this light coffee taste. But alas, this tiramisu has no trace of alcohol. Thus I would still find the one from tcc better, but maybe those that dislike tiramisu with alcohol will love this.
