It's So Chickalicious!

This is a spot that I've been wanted to check out for some time now. Its about a whole minute walk from my place so its way too convenient. I had heard that this was a Japanese dessert bar, however I found it to be anything but Japanese. The interior is minimal and clean and the size of the servings are Japaneseque in proportion but the presentation really through me off. The lights were really bright and it was really loud, machines constantly making things. My biggest issue was with the size of the spoons, they were HUGE! These delicate tiny little desserts and you are meant to eat it with a massive heavy soup spoon! How? The taste however was good, some interesting mixing of flavours with the brown sugar panna cotta and pineapple sorbet and the warm chocolate tart with peppercorn ice cream. Again to me, none of these had any reference to the taste of Japanese sweets but they were done well and quite interesting. It is a prix fixe menu, you select one dessert and then they pair it up with a starter dessert and some finishing tiny treats. All in all a really nice concept, I just think they need to work out the details.
