Mini Post 1

The photos below are from a collection of a number of places I visited but I only got 1/2 dishes from the menu. So I thought might as well put them into one random post ;P

If you're a fan of blue cheesecake, then you should try this newly opened cafe in Strathfield (also in Lidcombe now), Korean cafe that sells all sorts of cheesecake, from Camembert cheesecake, green tea, mango, red velvet cheesecake, etc.

Personally, the Camembert and mango cheesecake is really good but the rest is just tasted like sponge cake and not so much on the cheese side.

Visited Ippudo for their dessert. Tried the Black sesame panna cotta which is quite firm for the texture but has a good black sesame note plus the vanilla ice cream on top which is a great combo!

The Matcha brulee is also another must try for sweettooth!

The best fried ice cream dessert you could ask for! Unlike any other thick bread deepfried, Holy Basil uses a thin crisp filo pastry coating the coconut vanilla ice cream and topped with caramelised dessicated coconut, caramel sauce and strawberry. However full you are, please try this out!!

One of the busiest cafe in Manly! Selling a variety of Acai bowl and long queue for this baby! :)

San Churro limited edition special for Valentine this year.. Pretty for photo but it's just a sugar bowl!

Who thought chips and ice cream doesn't goes well together ;P I've always have maccas fried with their soft serve together when I was a kid and this brings back memory! Devon at barangaroo got the Houjicha soft serve with chips. Unfortunately for me, the ice cream has a punch of flavour and the flav itself is quite intense that it doesn't goes well with the chips. But darn tasty soft serve --.

Another Acai bowl cafe in Bondi called Acai Brothers bowl. Long queue but worth the wait :)

Zero Degree ice cream on top of Pungopang (red bean fried bread fish shaped). tried the taro and strawberry flavs and these cuties are located in Regent place downstairs. Not sure if they're still open or not.

My fave coffee spot near my Uni and the freshly baked croissant is a winner! Always long queue in the morning and I always get their Soy Mocha. Some of the staffs are indo and I overheard them one day saying to her friend that they know that Im Indonesian as well haha! Her term of whispering seems to be off ;P

Bite Chew Drink, Sydney

A new eating spot in Regent place Sydney! Its a korean-american restaurant and they are quite creative in creating their menu!

I love this spicy spaghetti with generous amount of cheese and I would love it to be even more spicy! :)

The chicken and chip was a but let down. Lovin the chip and thats it.. The chicken was grilled but no charr on it, tasted quite bland and I think the sauce fail to blend everything together.. it's just tasted sweet.

A must get platter!! That's all I can say..

So two great dish out of three, not bad :)

Harajuku Gyoza, Potts Point (New Menu)

I've posted some yummy foods by Harajuku Gyoza before. This post is about their new exciting menu that will be available in store and also what they sell in Night market in brisbane :) I am so lucky that I got invited to try these yummy foods first hand!

First below here is the cute OctoDog. Sausage wrapped with bread and deep fried and shaped as this cute octopus! Apparently this snack is really popular in their night market in Bne~! can't wait to have them in Sydney as well --

They also have a new Frose Rose drink on their menu, its a slushie alcoholic drink with a hint of rose. Refreshing and aromatic at the same time! Love thiss! Definitely must try, perfect companion for the gyozas!

In my first post, I only posted the Original Raindrop cake but this time I did take the Greentea one too and they have a new one, strawberry flavour! My favourite is still the Green tea though, but very pretty tricoloured dessert :)

If you haven't try this melt-in-the-mouth jelly, u definitely should!

New dessert in their menu too is this Watermelon Jelly with Choc chip as the seeds. So cute and Hugeee! It can feeds maybe 4-5 desserts lover at a time ~~

Sydney recently has been hit by Cheesecake fever by the famous Uncle tetsu's wobbly cheesecake. When Original cheesecake is getting too mainstream, Harajuku Gyoza now bake their own Green tea cheesecake! It will be available in store through phone order and booking only, so no walk-ins. It's $22 per box and I can guaranteed it wobbles and tasted as light as Uncle Tetsu's, and this is better cause it's green teaaaaa cheesecake hehe! They also have the original one available. :)

So this time, I got to bake my very own cheesecake :) Not bad despite the crack on top hehe ~~

Thanks harajuKu Gyoza and Mr.R for inviting meeee :)

Ninou Boulangerie, Rosebery

Henley Wholefoods, Alexandria

One fine Thursday, spending my day off with a lotttt of eating with my friend Mr.W, my sister and her bf Mr.S :) Went for a healthy breakkie at Henley wholefoods in Alexandria. They have numerous location such as Bondi and Double Bay. 

I just realized that their location in Alexandria is where Love Grub used to be. Can't believe that place is gone T.T *sad*

Anyway.. Lets get into the foods!
I ordered the Coconut Smoothie - Whole Coconut, cacao, Coyo & Banana. A great combo but in my opinion, the cacao was too much that it overpowers the drink and there were heaps of coconut husk blended in, so it's kinda hard to drink ;P

Waffle-n'. That's what this dish is called in the menu. Sweet potato and Buckwheat waffles, Coconut Candied Bacon, Vanilla bean Coyo, Banana, walnut, blueberries and Maple. It's not something that you'll love it on the first bite, U'll grow into it. Well atleast I did hehe.. :) 

The second dish is the Quinoa Goreng, recommended by the waitress saying that this is the popular dish there. So we tried. It tasted like Indonesian Fried rice but here they used quinoa. I kinda like it bu the only comment I can make is the quinoa was still a bit wet so it's quite mushy overall which need some crisp on it, Luckily they got crunchy cucumber, so that helps ;P

My favourite out of all - Braised Lamb Shoulder, orange gremolata, honey roasted carrots on Moroccan millet with dried apricots, sultanas and Coriander. Mr.W thought the combination was kinda weird, but I love itttt hehe :) Perfectly cooked lamb on delish millets and dried fruits.

We also tried the Salad plate which consist of all three salads offered on the menu.
- Squashed, quinoa, black olives, fresh orange, basil with pepitas and honey dressing
- Cabbage, fennel, red onions, dill, dijon mayo & roaster almonds
- Roast cauliflower, chickpeas, red onion, mint, babba ganoush & chia Dressing.

I definitely like the cauliflower and the squashed.
It's just that when you've been to Bread and Circus, your salad plate bar is up that high, it's hard to be impressed by the others I've tried so far haha!

Overall, it's not that bad. Good service and nice place to chill. Worth a try. why not :)

Aslan Coffee Roaster, St Peters

One fine Sunday, the Hubby & I craved for Indonesian Coffee and so we went to Aslan Coffee Roaster. They used beans from Indonesia and to me they got a strong burnt, dark, roasted note to it which I love and I thought made a perfect cappuccino :)
The place itself is not too big but U can tell how good the coffee is by the aroma of it once u passed by this place.

These dishes that I ordered below are the first top three in their menu list ;P
First is the Peppercorn Smoked Salmon - pan fried perkedel (Indonesian style potato croquette), chipotle aioli, poached eggs & dukkah. I personally like how the salmon and the perkedel goes well together and that sauce is a perfect one for the combo. Unfortunately the egg was a bit overcooked so I can't get that eggporn photo ;P


Second one is for the hubby, Maple Glazed Bacon - chipotle scrambled eggs, cherry tomatoes, avocado, water cress, dukkah & hummus on sourdough. The hubby lovesssss the caramellic notes on the bacon, me on the other hand lovess the multigrain sourdough with the avo and egg!

Coconut Crusted Pandan Chiffon with fresh strawberries, crumbled walnut, orange coffee curd, mini citrus & espresso pearls. Fluffy light pandan chiffon is amazingg! Especially with the orange coffee curds! The let down for me in the crumble. It tasted a bit like oxidized nuts kept too long in a jar. But apart from that, its a great dish.

I would definitely be back and recommend to everyone to check this place out! Taste yourself how aromatic Indonesian Coffee can be. They are quite strong, some people may not like it, but I love them hihi.. ^^
