Satisfying Sweet Tooth

The warm brownie pudding with chocolate sauce. Yum!
Cafe Causette in the Mandarin Oriental is a great go-to place when you can't really decide what you want to eat. And most of the time it's not too busy so you can get a table.

The menu for a hotel coffee shop is quite gourmet and has a number of healthy dishes on the menu like salads, detox juices and vegetarian mains, as well as indulgent items that are either Asian or Western.

You can dine on nasi goreng, Hainan chicken rice, and prawn masala, or have risotto, steak or pizza.

But be sure to save room for dessert -- and there are too many options to choose from!

Three of us this evening opted to try the warm brownies pudding (HK$108), a dark chocolate brownie baked in a ramekin topped with a scoop of peanut butter vanilla ice cream with a side of hot chocolate sauce.

Sound delicious?

It tasted divine.

The dark chocolate brownie was slightly bitter, but combined with the sweetness of the ice cream and a touch of chocolate sauce was a perfect combination. The ice cream had a flavourful peanutty taste that wasn't overpowering, but more than a hint.

But oh that brownie... nom nom...
