Dessert of the Week: Creme Brulee at Lua Bistrot
With each delicious and beyond reasonably priced entree, you can expect a complimentary creme brulee and it isn't of the low-end variety either.
More on this delectable dish after the jump!
The texture is not overly thick or runny with a crisp, thin layer of caramelized sugar on top. The sugar shell delivers a satisfying crack when you pierce it with the end of your spoon and the crème brûlée itself is rich and creamy. There is no distinctive trace of egginess; just silky smooth cream with just the right amount of sweetness.
Imagine the picture the above with a strawberry garnish. The dish is about three square inches and the creme brulee fills it about three-fourths of an inch from the bottom. It's may not be the most generous portion, but it sure as hell beats a stale chocolate-swirled after dinner mint.
