The signature dessert at CHAR Bar & Grill is undoubtedly executive chef Julie Donohoe’s banana cheesecake with lime cream. It is playfully presented in a custom-made cheese box marked with the CHAR logo. Donohoe says she came up with the idea of using the box several years ago, and when she came to China to work at CHAR, she found a supplier who could custom make the boxes just for this purpose. (It’s also a handy to-go box if you can’t finish the rather large portion.) If you also want to try some of Donohoe’s other popular desserts, order the tasting plate, which gets you a mini version of the famous banana cheesecake, as well as samples of the popular chocolate marquise with cherries, and the trifle and lemon tart.
