I know it’s halfway 2015 already, but I have just made my resolution for this year which is to blog about my foodieventures and travels regularly. Let’s hope I can live up to that resolution this time!! Quick catch up on me, I have recently graduated and now working as a full-time accountant (zzz… I know). Exciting news is I have moved to Sydney which means it’s time to explore all the good food here. My friends stumbled upon this glorious matcha fondant post from Cafe Cre Asion on Instagram. Most of the reviews I read would start with how small the place is and how it is tucked away in a small street. And that couldn’t be more true! We were lucky to wait only for 5 mins to get seats on some very short chairs (on these rare occasions, I am grateful for not having spidery long legs). The service was not that great, I should say. They put priority on people who order for takeaways, hence, people who want to dine in were stuck on the queue. Anyways, our order finally made it safely to our table.
The matcha latte was very strong, even to the point where it tasted a bit like drinking seaweed. I don’t like this at all, and it’s very rare that I would absolutely dislike food or drinks. We were hoping the matcha latte would be served in a black bowl, as seen on Instagram, to make it looked more authentic, but even if they did, it wouldn’t elevate the taste.
The Dark Chocolate and Matcha Fondant was just as glorious as it looked. The matcha gooey centre tasted just right and blended well with the dark chocolate. The matcha cream intensified the dish in a good way. The berries and the coulis were a great addition to offset the sweetness. However, the fondant itself was not perfect. The outside was not as crunchy as it should had been.
Overall, I would say it’s a go to place if you are a matcha addict.
