Sizzling neon lights, vibrant colours, funky settings and creative decorations, these were the first few impressions that we had on Adriano Zumbo at The Star.
In here, you can have Dessert train as well! Yes, just like sushi train. (O-M-G what?!) Unfortunately we didn't have time to try it, but I'm sure it will be an interesting experience.
When we were looking around inside the store, we have fell in love with these display boxes, it almost felt like an incredible journey into the future. We stared at these desserts one by one, and they all looked stunning.
We also found these sights at the front window, how adorable!? The mini wheel was made of funny looking shoes, spinning round and round to create amusement for its audiences. Also the tower of pink and orange macaroons instantly reminded you of childhood dreams...all those wonderful days where our world was full of pretty colours and endless sweets.
We also noticed these emergency glass boxes used to display the Zumbarons, it create the urge to reach your hand inside and grab them and start biting! But how brilliant is the idea of putting them inside there??
Ta-da!! Here are the ones we bought!! *Anticipation* Although...one thing I have to mention to you lovely readers out there...I wasn't happy with the service they provide, but it could have just been me. Their ignorance was quite irritating, just not sure if it was due to busy hours or what, oh wells.
2-pack Zumbarons: Chocolate doughnut and Peach ice tea flavours $5.00
We got this tiny box containing big surprises, and it was pretty difficult to pick 2 flavours out of the many. The Chocolate doughnut one had a generous amount of filling, and it was very rich. The Peach ice tea was a unique one, even though it didn't really taste like the actual peach tea, it was memorable.
Chocolate Mousse $9.00
No doubt this caught our attention almost immediately, as it had a simple but tempting look. It consist a mixture of chocolate and fruity taste, creamy and stimulating. Umm by the way, do most people pick out the berry first and then start eating other components?
My goodness, how on Earth am I going to describe this one to you? I DON'T KNOW!! Let's start on the elements? There were black sesame dacquiose, brown sugar crunch, lychee gel, raspberry sponge, raspberry jelly, liquorice cremeaux, and rose chantilly patisserie. The outer layer was soft and melts into your mouth smoothly, however, the core was...full of different textures. There was the layer that felt like sands, the sour fruits hiding somewhere in between, and the subtle punch of lychee flavours. I had about 5 spoons and I just couldn't stand it anymore...no, it wasn't bad actually, just by this time that I already had enough sweetness in my digesting system and can't take anymore in. Now here's another thing, I can't believe I thought of eating the rose pedal as well (blame on the fact it was too beautiful).
What do I think about Adrian Zumbo at The Star? It's modern, it's unique, and it's exciting! You probably can never see that much colours popping out at one particular store in anywhere else, whether it's the environment or the desserts, they were all full of energy. Although I have to say they are a little too sweet for me...
