Every dish at The White House Fusion Cuisine and Wine Lounge is a feast for all the senses. Each one is the perfect marriage of flavors, textures and temperatures, smells, and even sounds. Every bite is an experience in itself.
One dish that perfectly represents the best that The White House has to offer is the Yamamomo Cheesecake.
We live in a tropical country where berries are considered as exotic and luxurious. Although we are familiar with strawberries and blueberries, Yamamomo is not something accessible to us. Yamamomo is the Japanese name for Myrica rubra. It translates to “mountain peach.” It is also known as Chinese (or Japanese) Bayberry, Red Bayberry, Yumberry, Waxberry, or Chinese strawberry. Yamamomo is a succulent berry that is sweet and sour. It has more crunchy that other berries and has a hint of tartness.
The Yamamomo Cheesecake of The White House is composed of a silky creamy vanilla cheesecake nestled on top of a crunchy, nutty, and subtly flavored green tea dacquoise. It is topped with a compote of mixed berries. The compote has the right amount of sweetness which a texture that blends well with the creamy vanilla cheesecake. On top of the compete are fresh slices of strawberries and a piece of yamamomo. It is garnished white a green tea flavored white chocolate crescent. Adding more excitement to the flavors and textures of the dish are delicate mango caviars and green tea syrup.
