Raspberry Macaron at Feya Cafe is so special because Tender macaron shells encase a filling of fresh raspberries and soft creme patissiere in a combination as elegant as it is satisfying. Flavoursome rather than just sweet, and pretty enough to complement Feya's pastel decor, this is a treat...
Passionfruit Pave at Feya Cafe is so special because This whole cafe is a fruity, floral paradise for the senses, and the counters are filled with pastries that taste as amazing as they look! This was recommended to me by the staff (they've tried all the cakes and they...
Lobster spaghetti at Aubaine Selfridges is so special because Lobster linguini with tomatoes. The linguini was nicely cooked. It’s al dente!

Sea bass carpaccio at The Ninth is so special because Sea bass carpaccio, salsa verde & pickled kohlrabi was a unusual dish as it was French influenced with a Mediterranean style of cooking. The sea bass was cooked perfectly and melted in your mouth. Was a great twist on...
Liquid Caramel Peanut Butter Mousse Cake at Dominique Ansel Bakery is so special because Description: liquid caramel cremeux with peanut butter mousse, cinnamon and caramelised puff rice.
