Stuzzichino’s infamous tiramisu

A lover of tiramisu, and on the quest for the best tiramisu in town – I happily saved space in my tummy for dessert at this restaurant. Recommended by a work colleague and inscribed on the menu as the “infamous tiramisu”, I couldn’t contain my excitement; I was thinking about dessert before I even had dinner.

But to my disappointment, it wasn’t the best – it ranks next to a tiramisu I had tried from coffee franchise, Gloria Jean’s. Too much mascarpone cheese overpowered any taste to the soft, espresso and liquor-soaked sponge fingers. Too many layers of mascarpone perhaps?
