Dessert Review: Strawberry Mascarpone

No meal is ever completed without desserts. We had ordered Strawberry Mascarpone and Chocolate Berry Meringue for dessert after our main dishes of Chicken Escalope and Pollo Pizza.

Mascarpone is is an Italian triple-cream cheese, originated in the area between Lodi and Abbiategrasso, Italy, southwest of Milan, probably in the late 16th or early 17th century.

Basically, this is a strawberry cheesecake that we had ordered.

Strawberry Mascarpone (RM12.50)
A.K.A Strawberry Cheesecake

An italian cheesecake that comes with crusted biscuits at the bottom. There are small chunks of strawberries in the cheesecake. Strawberry puree was also mixed into the cheesecake to give it the red strawberry colour in the cheesecake.

With the mascarpone cheese, it gives the cheesecake a very buttery smooth texture, to be exact it has a very creamy texture. There are small chunks of  strawberries in the cheesecake though mostly are concentrated in the centre of the cake. As with the strawberry to whet the appetite, I dont find it too cheesy.
