The Movenpick Colombo recently hosted a select gathering at a high tea to introduce the dessert lineup available for their Swiss Dessert Promotion which will go on until the 29th of February. The delectably indulgent desserts on offer are certainly worth foregoing any diet for! This saccharine heaven is certainly worth all the hype!
The Movenpick brand boasts over 70 years of culinary mastery, and frequently hosts a variety of food related events giving discerning diners a chance to sample a melange of international cuisines.
From the Swiss Carrot Cake to the Chocolate Mousse, Schlorzifladen and Hazelnut Dessert Pie, you will find yourself spoilt for choice. There’s something for everyone - whether you prefer the well known dessert staples or are more inclined to checking out unfamiliar desserts, the items on the menu are varied, yet undeniably appealing. The Schlorzifladen, a pear tart, was an interesting dessert to start off with. The slightly sour pears worked well with the sweetness of the cream. Although it looked like it would be, the tart made for a relatively light dessert. Equally light, but certainly rich in flavour, was the chocolate mousse. The airy and decadent dessert is one of my favourites of the desserts I tasted. The best item off the menu was, without a doubt, the Hazelnut Cream Pie. The tastiest dessert, this will likely appeal to those of all ages. With a brownie-like base, the creamy hazelnut tasted heavenly! Just the right amount of sweet, it is a dessert I will happily keep going back for!
While the dessert promotion is short-lived, the Movenpick ice cream flavours are a permanent fixture, and will also be available at any of the hotel’s dining venues. Among the delightfully delicious flavours available are the Caramelita, Crème Brûlée, Maple Walnut, Stracciatella, Strawberry, Swiss Chocolate, Tiramisu and Vanilla Dream.
