Chocolate molten lava cake, flambé with Sambuca and Grand Marnier and served with vanilla ice cream. The cake was fairly competent and the lava thick and oozy, but the alcohol – two separate glasses brought to the table and poured over the cake in a tragic flop of a pyrotechnic display due to the cold aircon – floated very discretely on the plate, getting you really buzzy but never truly gelling organically with the chocolate cake and lava. Next time I’d get the lava cake alone and one (or four) of their affordable $9.90 wine options. 3.7/5
