Adriano Zumbo Pâtissier, Pyrmont

N’s quest for a delight­fully tangy lem­on tart brings us to Adriano Zumbo Patissier after rice bur­gers at Gojima at The Star. Their cab­in­ets are stocked to the brim, although foot traffic is rather quiet around mid­day.

This is the coveted Lemon Tart ($6.00). N is always on the look out for a good lem­on tart. Here, both the lem­on curd and the glaze are too thick with the curd hav­ing the con­sist­ency of melted gummy candy and the glaze detract­ing from the lem­ony good­ness. That aside, the fla­vour of the lem­on curd was pleas­antly zesty and tangy.

And a few weeks later, after a routine trip to the dent­ist, I treat myself to some macar­ons. This is the Toasted Marshmallow Macaron ($2.80), with pink and cream col­oured macar­on shells and a brown toasted marsh­mal­low cream that’s light and fluffy with a pleas­ant car­a­mel­iz­a­tion. This is one for sweet tooths.

And this is the Lemon Meringue Macaron ($2.80), with yel­low macar­on shells sand­wich­ing a deli­ciously tangy and zesty lem­on cream that leaves your mouth sal­iv­at­ing from the intens­ity.

As I’d con­cluded on earli­er vis­its, I’d go for the macar­ons and maybe their cronuts before the cakes here.
