Noodle Forum - 5 Nov 2014

Noodle Forum - Crispy Chicken Fillet Noodle with Satay Sauce

Noodle Forum specialise in making noodles by hand on a daily basis and then incorporating the noodles into a variety of dishes which you can enjoy in comfortable surrounds or takeaway if you wish. I ordered the crispy chicken fillet noodle with satay sauce which was crispy for sure, but tender chicken on the inside. The thinnish noodles were delicious and enjoyed with the excellent satay sauce, crispy crackers, spring onions, cucumber and fried shallots. A delicious meal which is evident by the business of the restaurant. It obviously has a loyal band of followers. . . . → Read More: Noodle Forum – 5 Nov 2014

Maple Crepes Cafe - 11 Oct 2014

Maple Crepes Cafe - Nutella Supreme

I walked in and a look at the menu before settling on the Nutella Supreme $7.80 – Nutella, banana, strawberry, roasted almonds, oreos, peanut butter. After a reasonable wait the crepe was served. It looked really delicious! The crepe is quite a large size and well packed full of ingredients. The crepe itself is a little overdone, slightly crunchy, firm, leathery in some spots, and yet for the most part, it’s reasonably soft. I would have preferred my crepe to be cooked a little less. Having said that, each mouthful was delicious. The crepe’s filling contains lots of thinly sliced banana and strawberry pieces that are lovely and soft and warmed through. There’s a nice mix of nutella, adding just that touch of chocolate and sweetness, a bit more chocolate intensity from the crushed oreos, a bit of crunch from the flaked almonds, and a bit of gooeyness from the peanut butter. It’s a feel good dessert, big on the yum factor, big on comfort food. You leave with a smile and a full stomach. . . . → Read More: Maple Crepes Cafe – 11 Oct 2014

Koko Black - 7 Jul 14

Koko Black - Chocolate Display

Koko Black, a specialty chocolatier, serve up a range of delicious hand crafted chocolate varieties for you to take away. Aside from the chocolates on display, they also offer a few savoury items as well as the sweet, along with coffee and hot chocolate for you to enjoy in their salon. The hot chocolate was delicious with a lovely flavour of quality chocolate, although, it’s a bit pricey at $6.50. The individual chocolates are $2.10 each and are well worth the money. There’s other chocolate items to sample including boxed sets. I think having Koko Black in the heart of the Perth CBD will make it super popular. And who doesn’t like a cup of hot chocolate on a cold winter’s day? . . . → Read More: Koko Black – 7 Jul 14

Theobroma Chocolate Lounge - 23 May 2014

Theobroma Chocolate Lounge - Waffles With Ice Cream

Second time visit to Theobroma Chocolate Lounge, but this time for the food. I ordered waffles with ice cream and also a hot chocolate for breakfast. The waffles were delicious, contained ample delicious thick melted chocolate, and was topped off with the scoops of vanilla ice cream. I certainly brought a little bit of food envy around the table and it tasted as good as it looked. Very indulgent. I also had a hot chocolate made with milk chocolate and it was delicious. Not too milky or too chocolatey, just right. A great start to the day at Theobroma. . . . → Read More: Theobroma Chocolate Lounge – 23 May 2014

NSW, Sydney - Lindt Café

Lindt Café - Waffles

If you need something delectable and just want to treat or indulge yourself, then a visit to the Lindt Café is a must. I ordered a waffle for breakfast. It’s pretty good but not the best but the Lindt flavoured vanilla ice cream and the thick rich Lindt chocolate sauce are the elements which make it indulgent. The maccarons were tasty but I didn’t care that much for the chocolate hazelnut gateau. I’m not sure what the hot chocolate would be like but this is a place you can buy just about everything. . . . → Read More: NSW, Sydney – Lindt Café

VIC, Melbourne CBD - Cumulus

Cumulus Inc - Smoked Salmon, Sorrell, Dill & Grapefruit Juice

Unfortunately a changed menu left me with little choice to the dish I really wanted. That said, there’s lots of choice on the menu, it’s just that since I don’t like eggs, there wasn’t an item on the menu that I really wanted. I chose the smoked salmon on toast and received a decent amount of smoked salmon which isn’t cheap. With a lovely horseradish, some greens and dill on top of a lovely thick piece of toast, it was a good meal. I liked the fresh grapefruit juice but thought the $27 bill was rather steep (I realise there’s probably a surcharge for the ANZAC Day holiday). Obviously a highly popular place. . . . → Read More: VIC, Melbourne – Cumulus

VIC, Melbourne - Gelato Messina

Cafe Messina - Various Gelato Flavours

With an array of flavours and some interesting combinations, there’s something to suit your taste buds when it comes to a scoop or two of gelato. I chose passionfruit in a cup (cone also available) and it was soft, smooth, full of passionfruit flavour, a real freshness, and the seeds are included for crunch. So delicious, the closest thing to gelato I ate in Rome. . . . → Read More: VIC, Melbourne – Gelato Messina
