Just like clockwork it is time for another visit at the Sheraton Grand Panama. This place just keeps on delivering. Today I checked in and I was again offered an upgrade to a suite (which is great for work space and you get not only one but two additional windows which provide ample of natural light.) Just the views of the Pacific Ocean are breath taking, I really love this deal. By now the gal at the front desk knows me pretty well, and now on to the "scary" part: After check in I walk to the elevator but my hands were busy so this other gal who also works at the hotel kindly holds the door for me, passes her proximity card and presses the floor my room is at after which she ask "Floor eight, correct?" My mind blown. To which she proceeds to great me by name and ask me how my week was. For someone with terrible memory such as myself, I am very impressed she remembers the rooms her guests are in :O
But never mind their excellent memory and upgrade wow-ing. Today's picture of the day is of the Platinum Welcome gift I got. As you've seen from the previous pictures, you generally get some fruit and some really delicious cheese and bread. But today was different. For the first time I got some sweets! and do check them out!
The first one down the list I don't know what it is but it is good. It is like a banana bread pudding but not. From what I can tell, the bottom part is made out of coconut, while moving up you get a layer of chocolate (chips?) and then you end up the final layer which has pieces of nuts. The very top is caramel with a strawberry on top of it. I guess the chocolate in between and the texture is what reminded me of a bread pudding which now I am craving.
Moving down we have something that is probably closer to a french pudding (by now you are wondering if that is the only thing I have on my mind). Definitely a bread pudding of sorts, it has little pieces of raisins inside which make for a very delicious and not as over sweet as the previous one. It comes with a little piece of white chocolate which was really good and made it look that much better
Third down the road (again you can tell I did not attend culinary school), we have something that looks like a flan. This time again we have decorative additions on the top made out of chocolate which add for both a delicious and visually appealing touches. Taste wise it was definitely a flan, a very good one at that. not too moist, just right.
And last but not least, we've got the chocolate brownie! Let's see if I still do leave the best for last. Again, with something pink looking on the top that feels like light bread (but not quite cotton candy) that I can't figure out yet, this brownie has it all! (except ice cream and seconds). It has some sort of milk chocolate mouse that contrast with the darker chocolate used in the actual brownie. Accompanied by some nuts and chocolate chips, this brownie is texture and flavor rich! Can't call it the best as I am chocolate biased but definitively good like the rest.
And that my friends, is my dessert report of the day! I hope you liked the pictures and you didn't drool too much today. See you next time!
