Dessert

Misty’s Diner
103 High St
Prahran

We wandered over to Misty’s Diner a couple of week’s ago for a post-dinner snack. Knowing full well their reputation for an authentic American style food and dedication to surpassing all legal quotas of all things sugary and deep fried, we felt it only safe to approach with a solid week of gym efforts under our belts.

Inside, colourful booths and neon lights abound with a good smattering of American paraphernalia covering the walls – think flags, vinyls and license plates.

We decided to stick to desserts and ended up ordering: the strawberry and white chocolate thickshake – rather garish looking under the lights don’t you think? It was probably too sweet, but I think I was too busy gulping it down to notice. So tasty that I’m pretty sure I had some sort of reflexive sugar coma and was subsequently drowsy and disorientated for the 20 minutes following consumption.

And we had an old school cherry coke spider. The soft serve was of an odd quality, but hey, you can’t really go wrong with a spider.

Also notice this on the dessert menu. Double stuffed deep fried oreos – it’s enough to clog your arteries just thinking about it.

In fact, the rest of the menu was sort of amazing in a bizarrely fascinating way, full of a wide array of fried potato goods – curly fries, waffle fries, fried potato skins… – and ribs and wings … The more I read the more a perverse sort of craving developed. It’s just too unhealthy not to taste good. I will be testing this theory on my next visit.

Cupcake Central
Melbourne Central

Epic cupcake craving the other week while waiting in line at hoyts for tickets to the hunger games. Satisfied completely and utterly by this lovely little morsel from cupcake central.

Red velvet, lovely (and completely photogenic) delectable moist cakey-ness topped off with a creamy light flurfffy icing – perfection.

Cupcake Central Workshop on Urbanspoon

Just uploaded photos from my camera and realised there has been much eating of late and very little blogging!  Bear with me as I share with you a recent stockpile of interesting and yummy eateries.

Burch and Purchese Sweet Studio: 647 Chapel St, South Yarra

This is a little dessert-ery on the quieter end of chapel st near the church st bridge.  It’s a cute little shop with lovely staff who are happy to explain ingredients and offer suggestions as well as samples of their chocolate 🙂  There’s an amazing range of sweet things here, from cakes to crumbles to honeycomb to jars of jam and lemon curd and salted caramel.  Even freeze dried fruit powder.

We had the Coconut, Passionfruit, Ginger and Mint.  Each little cup (see below) had: coconut mousse, passionfruit curd, coconut caviar, passionfruit jelly, salted oat and ginger crumble, white chocolate mint wafer, ginger macaroon and white chocolate spray.

Such an interesting dessert because you can take your time experimenting with the individual components and then putting them together.  Wonderful flavours that really complimented each other 🙂
