With TL at the table, we turned to the dessert menu for the first time.
The Chilled Mango Pudding was amazing. Tangy dice of fresh mango, sweet pudding, creamy coconut milk, savory sesame cracker : a perfect blend of flavors. To the extent that I enjoy dessert — which I don’t really — this falls within the top three favorites in recent memory (see also 6.045 Tortilla Española, 6.237 Coconut Panna Cotta) — all involving mango and/or coconut.
Just realized that RK has achieved the dubious distinction of having shared the most dinners with me thus far, including tonight — not counting family members, not counting mass gatherings (where we may have been in the same building but not at the same table) — since the move to Manila.
