sympathy for the strawberry

came across that great sonic youth title and figured i should do a post...or maybe the post was coming first and the song came second...anyway.
here are two versions of what could be considered a strawberry vacherin
strawberries, lime curd, meringue dusted with matcha, coconut-shiso sorbet, micro shiso
which one do you prefer?
the meringue is an amazing recipe/technique that i learned from Valrhona Chef Derek Poirier.  it is par-baked and then thrown in the blast chiller.  it has a crisp exterior while keeping a gooey new favorite cause i love meringues.
thanks Derek.
