creme brulee @ Lingo Bistrot
After that disastrous chocolate fondant last year, and the time they canceled my order from Sherpa's, I never thought I would return to Lingo Bistrot. But on a day that all the other French restaurants in town (Nova, Franck, and CUIVRE ) seemed to be closed, I had no choice but to go there.
And ... their creme brulee was actually decent. It was served in a large, shallow ramekin, which, as X. pointed out, meant more caramelized sugar for me. The custard base was on the heavy side, but at least it wasn't too sweet. I had to dine and dash, so I didn't finish it anyways. (28RMB / US$4.50)
