There are more and more restaurants opened in the St-Henri neighborhood. On the bustling streets of Notre-Dame, right across my favorite Middle Eastern restaurant Sumac, lies Rosetta – a charming new Italian & French bakery and patisserie. Paying homage to Rosetta Sciortino Cammalleri, who is the mother and grandmother of owners, Maria and Rocco Cammalleri. Everything offered at the store is homemade where, many of the dishes are recipes that have been passed on through generations. Serving a vast assortment of sweet and savoury delights, at Rosetta, the secret ingredient is.... “family”!
oHacorte, a cafe specializes in fruit tartes, is the most popular dessert spots in Okinawa. It is popular among the locals and the tourists that it has 4 locations in Okinawa (5 included the store in Naha airport), and they are slightly different in styles. We went to the one in Minatogawa, which is the original store, after grabbing coffee at Cerrado Coffee.
My friend and I had been following Tasty for a while. The videos that they made for each recipe seem so simple that anyone can do it. Therefore, we decided that it is time to try it out! We chose 3 recipes that intrigued us the most, and this Chocolate Almond Braid was one of it, however, with a twist. ;)
In my previous Le Parloir post, I have expressed how much I love high tea. It has become a tradition whenever I visit Hong Kong. In case you don't know, Hong Kong was colonized by the Britain, hence a huge part of their culture is strongly influenced by the British. Locating in the Clipper Lounge of Mandarin Oriental, the afternoon tea set is the best one I've ever had so far in Hong Kong (price-wise is reasonable too!).
