Red Chocolate Chili Peppers
It is my birthday today!! And I have had too much fun and a shameless amount of dessert over ‘birthday week’ that kicked off with a delicious meal at Sushi Samba London a few days ago.
My American readers may be familiar with Sushi Samba, a popular Brazilian-Peruvian-Japanese fusion restaurant with locations in New York, Miami, Las Vegas and Chicago. Sushi Samba used to be one of my favourite restaurants during my NYC days and naturally, I was beyond excited to finally try out their new London branch.
The ambience at Sushi Samba was superb with gorgeous views of London from the restaurant’s 38th floor location. The food was brilliant too. But what was mind blowing was this gorgeous dessert!
ORGANIC RED CHOCOLATE CHILI PEPPERS peruvian chili mousse, red pepper tuile, raspberry-red pepper sorbet, chocolate crumble
Looks divine, doesn’t it?
The presentation of this dessert is beautiful. The chili mousse is coated in chocolate crumble and served on beds of delicate red pepper tuile separated by the most elegant scoops of raspberry-red pepper sorbet The flavours were outstanding and I was most impressed with the sorbet – so unusual, sweet and spicy – a great finale to an excellent meal!
For those of you bold enough to attempt making some red chocolate chili peppers at home, here is the recipe from the Sushi Samba website.
