Oh my! Stuffed from having two desserts. This is a first for me.
I mean, one Tiramisu and one Sticky Toffee Pudding shared between two people. The menu did say that one is usually enough for two to three people, however, it is dessert. There is always space and room for dessert.
Why all the fuss for these desserts? Well... the chef is the main reason. See below taken from the restaurant site.
Chef Dominique Ansel, named World’s Best Pastry Chef by the World’s 50 Best Awards, is thrilled to announce the opening Dominique Ansel Treehouse, a new all-day cafe in the heart of London’s Covent Garden.Set within a stunning two-storey space the modern treehouse design is inspired by exploration and imagination, with casual cafe seating throughout both the ground floor and upstairs in the lofty treehouse canopy. A takeaway bakery counter on the ground floor offers pastries, tarts, and classic French viennoiserie, as well as coffee and tea.
The Tiramisu was lovely and light, whilst the Sticky Toffee Pudding was rich and very filling.
Both were really tasty and came with added theatre and drama from the way they get the dishes ready.
The Tiramisu is released from its cases and the top drops and unveils a glorious plate of chocolate powder and cream, which covers a soft sponge.
The Sticky Toffee Pudding comes out minus the sauce. This is then poured on top, with first white chocolate sauce and then milk chocolate. This creates a nice striped effect and a nice puddle of sauce in the middle of the domed dessert.
The taste to the theatre give you two reasons to come and visit. The Treehouse on the second floor is an added third reason and make sure you book in advance. This is a popular spot for foodies, insta folk and bloggers. I will be back for more food and more photos.
