LuxBite pushes sweets out of their comfort zone: combining French techniques with Asian flavours and wondrous imagination. Sometimes you’ll find brekkie in a biscuit, such as a ‘kaya toast’ macaron made with coconut jam and French-butter filling, the shell from toasted bread. But there are also a few straighter, savoury breakfasts and brunches that’re no less beguiling: a curry-leaf and coriander spiced chicken pie with powerful garlic mash, or a twist on bisque: saffron and leek soup, with steamed prawn mousse, onion sambal oil and toast. Back to dessert: try the famous banoffee opera cake with Sichuan pepper chocolate crunch.
