Texture is what first intrigues. It feels compact, yet barely stable, like a suet pudding solidified. Or yellow play dough.

A caramelised, creme brûlée top, sticky rather than brittle.

Taste like a mild lemon curd, custardy, sweet and tart. Went extremely well with a great expresso.

We were here to see the Paula Rego exhibition, they let you take pictures, so:IMG_1801 IMG_1808 IMG_1812 IMG_1815 IMG_1820 IMG_1822
