Visit Las Vegas: Sweets Raku

While planning for our Vegas trip, my friend told me about this fabulous desserts place where even the menu was edible!  It sounded straight out of one of my dreams and earned a top spot on the itinerary.  Sweets Raku, sister restaurant to Japanese restaurant Raku is located in Las Vegas’ Chinatown and doesn’t take reservations.
Nine out of ten of us chose to order the prix fixe 3 course menu for $19 and the latter chose one main dessert a la carte for $12.  The fancy dessert shop also offers wine pairings, but I selected a black peach tea to accompany my desserts.  

My amuse bouche was a pineapple sorbet that was to die for.  It was amazing.  The other half of the group received a fig sorbet which, let's just say, was not to die for.     

For my main dessert, I had the Mt. Fuji, a chestnut cream cake topped with layers of chestnut cream.  It was unusual to look at, but once I took a bite, I knew this was the stuff dreams are made of.  Mine, anyway.  The light taste of the chestnut was delightful and the sponge cake was soft, airy and perfect.  

However, next time and mark my words there will be a next time, I will order Stella, the fairest of all strawberry tiramisu.  With its beautiful presentation, you won’t want to cut into it, but once you do, it will be sure to be one of the best desserts you have ever experienced.  

The final course was a cream puff served with petit fours.  I practically inhaled the cream puff and its delicious light vanilla cream.  The pastry chefs at Sweets Raku are amazing at creating such beautiful and delicious desserts.  This was definitely an extraordinary and unique experience.  Next time in Vegas, make sure to stop here.
