After the horrendous dinner at La Régalade we didn’t dare order dessert lest it be another disaster. We decided to go to Chelsea in Serendra where the desserts are fabulous. Warren and I wanted to go for food and not dessert. I only ate 2 slices of bread and a bite of lamb chop at La Régalade.
When you order coffee, jars of Choc-Nut and muscovado sugar are brought to the table. I’d always just eat the Choc-Nut, a local confection made of ground peanuts and chocolate, but the waiter said some people actually use it to sweeten their coffee. I’ll try that with my coffee next time.
We decided to have a light snack and ordered the portobello mushroom pizza with asparagus, artichokes & tomato confit. The crust was very thin but a bit soggy in the middle but super crunchy at the end. It was yummy!

For dessert everyone agreed to share an order of Belgian waffles. The bacon was super crispy and it was dipped in Nutella. It was strangely good. The waffle had a very nice texture. It was a bit crisp on the outside and very tender on the inside. I didn’t taste any balsamic in the caramel sauce but I appreciated that the sauce wasn’t cloyingly sweet.
Pizza and waffles were the perfect comfort meal to soothe our unhappy stomachs. There wasn’t a Michelin star chef in sight and the food was awesome!
