Kingston Eats: Aroma Restro Wine Bar

The server was very good and gave lots of helpful and insightful suggestions.  Food was very good and the price is reasonable.  The restaurant is big with lots of seating and has a very nice atmosphere.  The desserts are a must try – one of the top desserts served in restaurants here.

Citrus crème brûlée
This is a very well made crème brûlée.  The sugar layer was thin and cracked nicely.  The inside was very creamy pudding-like.  It also didn’t taste like eggy custards.

0411 Turkish Baklava with Vanilla Gelato (Aroma)Turkish Baklava with Vanilla Gelato
The baklava was not as sweet and buttery rich as the usual baklava we have.  However it seemed to be a nice healthier version (with the dates and nuts).  The gelato stole the whole dessert.  It had such a strong burst of vanilla flavour.  Their gelato is one of the best I’ve ever had.

Raspberry, vanilla and chocolate
