Tropical tutti-frutti; Amarena cherries, mango Alfonso, passion fruit and papaya was soon followed by lemon, honey, cinnamon as well as vanilla marshmallows. On the palate a sweet citric note caught our attention before we were back in seventh sweet fruit heaven with a pineapple carpaccio, juicy pineapple slices, fresh vanilla ice cream and blueberries. A drop of water and a floral lavender freshness emerged beside (given a bit of time) plums, pain au chocolate and a cup of orange pekoe tea. To taste, a lovely limey zestiness combined with fizzy orange soda, marshmallow bubble tea and shortbread covered in coconut whipped cream.
