Dragon Egg | Sake
Sake’s delicate, decadent dragon eggs take three days to make and may just be the most over the top dessert in Sydney. The egg is brought to your table and covered in liquid nitrogen, which makes the shell brittle and creates a dramatic swirling fog. The edible shell is then crackled open to reveal a luxurious combination of premium ingredients including coconut cream, cherry compote, almond crunch and miso caramel. A dessert fit for Daenerys. Available daily.
