If you were trying to look for this Italian restaurant, it will definitely be quite a challenge. With no clear signage, you will need a very good eyesight to spot the small signage bearing the SSTC - the short name for Spaghetti Sweet Tea Cafe @ Ipoh.
We came here (highly recommended by our friend cum "tour-guide") for the Italian Tiramisu (RM 18), SSTC's signature. This "pick-me-up" espresso-based dessert was definitely not a let-down because it actually tasted different, not your usual tiramisu. It had kept to the tradition whereby the ladyfingers (sweet sponge cakes) were soaked in espresso and layered with mascarpone cheese, topped generously with cocoa powder.
However, I find the tiramisu slightly lacking the intensity of the espresso, and for a coffee dessert, this is a bit disappointing. Luckily, the mascarpone cheese manage to save the dessert. I love the mascarpone cheese - light and fluffy - truly the star ingredient of this dessert. It is also not to sweet, a lovely dessert.
While the tiramisu is nice, but if you ask me, for that price, I felt it was a bit on the high side, especially for Ipoh's standard. Given that they used imported ingredients to make this tiramisu, maybe it is justified. You will need to try it for yourself to judge if it is worth it or not.
But despite that, they do serve a nice range of drinks. The one that caught my attention on the drinks menu is the hot Wild Berries tea from Naturalis. We first came across Naturalis Wild Berry tea at one of the restaurants in Citta Mall, Ara Damansara, and ever since then, both KS and I are hooked to this fruity berry tea. Never thought we can find this lovely beverage all the way in Ipoh. A perfect beverage to end the sweet experience at SSTC.
