Forget that half-eaten block of sugar-free chocolate!
National Dessert Day is this Friday the 14th of October and it’s safe to say your diet can wait for at least one day …
With so many delicious sweets to savour (seriously, don those stretch pants), we’ve rounded up the top 10 desserts to try this month!
Five words: dulce de leche crème brulee. Yep! This dessert from The Jetty is everything you want from a crème brulee and more. It’s sweet, smooth and creamy… we’re drooling just thinking about it!
Once you try the bee-pollen panna cotta from Aquitaine, you will never look at another panna cotta the same. Served with syconia jam, tangy mandarin sorbet, honey glaçage and vanilla crumb, it is creamy, fruity and perfect for Spring.
3. Denim Co.
The key to our heart? A serve of Denim Co’s classic sticky date pudding. A thick slab of traditional date cake drowned in caramel sauce and topped with vanilla bean ice cream, crispy wafers and pistachio, it’s everything you want in a dessert and more!
Trust us when we say OTTO’s dessert menu is next level! Beautifully curated by Head Pastry Chef Gianna Ephraims, we’re currently obsessed with their super fresh Ananas dessert, made with pineapple, vanilla, coconut, basil, and lime.
Close your eyes and pretend you’re in Italy! This classic tiramisu - prepared with layers of espresso and Frangelico soaked saviordi and whipped mascarpone - tastes just like Nonna makes it.
6. Max Brenner
Desserts don’t get more decadent than Max Brenner’s silky smooth chocolate fondue. Served with fresh fruit, banana bread and marshmallows, what’s not to love?
Fellow cheesecake fanatics, take note! Ole have the most insane Basque cheesecake on the menu and we suggest you order a serve STAT. Plated with butterscotch sauce and ice cream, this beauty is both vegetarian and gluten friendly.
8. Mucho Mexicano
All good Mexican fiestas should end with a warm serve of fresh, sugary churros (at least in our eyes!). Thin strips of crispy fried dough, coated in cinnamon sugar and served with dulce de leche or chocolate sauce, this dessert is a big vibe.
9. Cold Rock
If you haven’t indulged in a cold rock creation as an adult, you’re going to want to change that! A cup of pure nostalgia, watch as they bring to life your favourite flavour combo!
10. Baba Ganouj
If you share our love for authentic Lebanese cuisine, you are going to want to try the sweet baklava and Turkish delight from Baba Ganouj ASAP. Made with love by their talented team, this is the prefect sweet ending to any banquet!
