At Spice Market, keep your eye out for the Warm Rice Pudding ($7), a new and worthy addition to the dessert menu. Here rice pudding meets creme brulee with a crackly caramelized surface and spoonful of sweet basil seeds. Crack through the top then make your way deep into the pudding bowl, luxurious and comforting. The creamy pudding is studded with golden and black raisins, fruity pops with each mouthful. To complete, an accompaniment of puckery-sweet passionfruit sorbet neatly tucked into the fresh fruit shell. Thumbs up all around.

Note: also new to the dessert menu are moist and petite Mango Upside-Down Cakes with a scoop each of complementing basil and mango sorbets.
