Who likes FREE desserts? 

From 16 - 30 April 2012, award-winning Tai Zi Heen will be featuring "All Things Sweet for Free" promotion. With a minimum order of RM50 per table, every diner at the table will be entitled to a free dessert from a selection of desserts specially designed by Chinese Head Chef, Michael Wong. This is a great way for diners to try both new desserts and old favourites from Tai Zi Heen.

We sampled 14 desserts in one seating (in miniature portions of course) and we all had our own favorites. Surprisingly most of the desserts were not that sweet, and there were a few which I enjoyed very much. The mango pudding with passion fruit sauce was pretty to look at, and there was a play of tangy-sweet flavours. 

The dessert that got the most attention was the crispy durian tempura - partly bcos there was a few in our group which weren't big fans of the king of fruits. After a little persuasion, all of them eventually tried it and LIKED it. The durian flavour was there but it wasn't overpowering thanks to the use of custard, just right for both lovers and non-lovers of durian. 

I also enjoyed the chilled mango puree with ice-cream, sago and pomelo as well as the lemongrass jelly with aloe vera and lime sorbet which I have eaten before during my tapas review. The latter was appetizing and I had a couple (well, maybe more) of this. ;P I also like the crispy Vietnamese spring roll filled with sweetened avocado puree and the avocado pandan puree - avocado really works in dessert. ;)

There are also the classic Chinese desserts to choose from, such as iced jelly with dried longan puree and white fungus, Chinese herbal jelly with honey, sweetened red beans with lotus seeds and lily bulbs and iced sea coconut with lemon syrup.
