Setting down at Esette

It has been quite a while since the Lions walked around Duxton area. Sensing that there might be changes in the area, the Lions flew down to take a look.
A furry friend that we encountered!

The Lions were right, for they stumbled upon Esette. Located along Duxton road, Esette is a café which also deals with gifts.

Unfortunately, the Lions had ramen for lunch before they embarked on their exploration. Thus they could only try Esette's desserts...... and they were not disappointed.

A cosy interior that makes you want to snuggle up and curl up like a cat.

Esette's coffee was fairly decent. Not the best you would have tried but good enough to pair with their cakes. Cute Cute just loved the coffee mug.
Cream cheese cake with white chocolate (above)
The cream cheese cake was light and fluffy, not heavy at all. The white (pink coloured) chocolate spoon on vanilla mousse was a nice décor to the cake as well.

Bread and butter pudding (below)
Unlike the normal bread and butter pudding, Esette's was a bit more solid with some nuts in it. However, Cuchi still preferred the cream cheese cake though.

After having desserts, Cuchi was almost leaving when she saw Esette's kueh lapis. Cuchi has a soft spot for kueh lapis and a box was bought.
Surprise surprise, the kueh lapis was wonderful. It has a very nice buttery taste, soft and filled with flavour. Note the generous amount of prunes in the kueh lapis.

Esette is a place worth going. Perhaps a second trip is warranted to try their mains and to grab another box of kueh lapis.
