YaY! We scored yet another treat from Mr food hunter's elder brother. Yesterday, he took 4 little piggies out to town...haha not quite, but close enough to town for lunch. Mr and Miss food hunter last visited Cream a good few years back and we still remember the decadent Chocolate Dianne cake and the luscious fresh fruit tart we had. It is about time we checked ourselves in for an update!

The Bruschetta came with a good serve of vine-ripened tomatoes, basil leaves, stretchy bocconcini atop basil pesto baguette slices and drizzled with balsamic glaze and chive oil. The tomatoes were truly sweet and Cream's classic take on the italian bruschetta was simple and satisfying.
The Earl Grey custard tart was surprisingly good! The lil sis had to dash off and the rest of us helped ourselves to her leftover i.e. even before our mains arrived. Hee! The custard is not cloyingly sweet with quite a similarity to the portuguese sweet yet savoury egg tarts. Personally, it was well infused with Earl Grey though some may prefer a stronger tea flavour. In our experiences of eating all sorts of tart-based desserts, the common disappointment lies in the tart shell. Cream's always maintained perfectly cooked tart bases, not too hard nor too buttery and none of those mushy, doughy, uncooked ones! Oh, the macerated raisins we thought were rather sweet and thus, overpowering for the subtle tea custard.
