Cova Ristorante & Caffe - Dessert

Desserts with my BFF
I had a sudden crave on sweets last night, which brought me the idea of grabbing some desserts with my best friend at Central.
They have lunch, dessert and afternoon tea set menu, and I have chosen their signature tiramisu cup that is served over smoky flame to keep its low temperature. Its taste and appearance are both impressive to me.
