Louis Hungarian Patisserie, Hampstead, London

The meringue is a thing of beauty. Light and perfectly dry and crisp on the outside. The centre is gooey, sticky with a coffee filling. The entire thing was painfully sweet (literally) but I ate through all that pain because the texture was perfect (I couldn't stop).

The savoury menu is Polish. The zrazy is not bad -- a prominent but not overwhelming smokey flavour from the outer bacon wrapping; solid meatiness with the beef on the inside. Good crisp cole slaw, just the right touch of sweetness, fresh vegetables.

The cheesecake is decent, but nothing like the meringue.
