JIO Cafe @Kimberley Street, George Town, Penang

For a start, with the name like JIO Cafe, it got to be interesting. Since it opened recently on Kimberley Street in George Town, Penang, the banana-themed cafe has been offering a memorable experience for diners by serving their Lady in Red dessert with table-side liquid nitrogen rose.

The description of the Lady in Red suggests it comes with cheesecake, macaron and fresh rose but the reality is a total surprise. The dish is presented with table-side liquid nitrogen rose. The process starts with dipping the rose in the liquid nitrogen. With a clap on the frozen rose, it’s raining brittle rose petals🌹.

The serving of the Lady in Red with the rose is an attractive refinement and it’s easy to fall in love with the combination. Priced at RM32, the dessert is not a cheap option, but this seems alright with the reflective of the presentation and the price of the fresh rose.
