Chiang Mai, Raming Tea House Lapis Cake
Raming Tea House is in Tha Pae Road outside the moat and we found it a heaven of peace in the big city.
But much more important is their "Lapis Cake" a rich layered cake with a very special fragrance. Quizzing the waitress only produced "cinnamon and lemon" and I'm positive that there is no cinnamon in it. I'm guessing Osmanthus? Flowery and fruity and downright intoxicating I would say.
So, anyone going to Chiang Mai, this cake is worth every sin* and if you have any idea what that heavenly taste could be, please report back!
