When you think of desserts you probably think of a sugar overload and a couple hours at the gym just to make sure you aren't indulging too much. But a newly opened dessert bar at 5298 Yonge Street in Toronto will have you hooked once you try their delicious, yet uncharacteristically healthy desserts.
The recently opened Chi Patisserie in Toronto has the most remarkable cakes around and with their wide range of flavours to choose from, they will satisfy the sweet tooth in all of us. The decor is just as beautiful as the cakes, with a minimalist design and understated accents such as gold utensils, white chairs and soft lighting.
They're changing the dessert game by combining a classical Asian style with authentic French to create something out of this world. They're brave flavour combinations take the sweetness of dessert and mesh it with ingredients that even your waistline can appreciate. It's health meets decadence in the best possible way.
They started by using a Chinese liquor and mixing it with sweet lemon and tart cheeses to create a sweet—but not too sweet—dessert. They rolled with that type of flavouring using ingredients such as bamboo charcoal, fresh soy and rice wine, and more of their unique desserts were born.
They have a wide assortment of flavours like the matcha sesame cake, an oolong peach, a rice wine, and a charcoal cream cheese, just to name a few.
One of the best parts of these desserts is how beautiful they are. Their unique style screams dessert perfection and they're so pretty you'll almost feel bad by eating them. Until you taste them, that is. Then you'll want to try everything on the menu. And at less than 10 bucks per cake, you might as well try them all!
