Last night I squeezed in a last-minute “Let’s Do Dessert” (formally known as “Sugar Hits”) before the end of October’s Good Food Month.
After going to a farewell dinner for my colleague Yvette (I will blog about Mejico soon!), I went to Glass Brasserie at Hilton Sydney for a late night indulgence with friends who had just finished a wedding rehearsal.
For the first time, I had a poor first impression of a multi-award winning restaurant. We phoned the restaurant 30 minutes before our booking to see whether we could add an extra person to our table, the waitress claimed that they were “fully booked” and could not accommodate for any changes, yet the five of us walked into the not-so-full restaurant and ordered a serving each with no problems.
For $20 a head we were presented with the dessert – Chocolate Delice served with Peanut Butter Ice-Cream & Salted Caramel Popcorn with a glass of Brown Brothers dessert wine on the side.
The slice of chocolate delice, decorated with toffee-like popcorn and peanuts served with a smooth ice cream and chocolate sauce reminded me of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups – rich, nutty and luscious. Despite the first impressions, the sugar hit was an enjoyable treat.
