It’s my week off from uni and despite the pile of work eyeing me from my desk I’ve decided to have a bit of treat week. Otherwise, I won’t make it through the upcoming exams without wanting to run into a wall.
A highlight of the week was getting gelato and drinks at Coogee Pavilion – the large, beachy, dining venue has a rooftop bar with beautiful ocean views, good food and cocktails.
After trying a cocktail or three – the Pavilion Piña Colada was fantastic, we bounced down and grabbed gelato in waffle cones. As usual, I went straight for the chocolate – going for a creamy chocolate gelato with gooey brownie chunks inside.
I’ve also been on an acai bowl hunt recently. I’ve discovered this fantastic place called My Fruitologist, which I can confidently say has the most aesthetically pleasing acai bowls in Sydney (a big call I know, but I’ve eaten there four times in the past fortnight and I can’t get enough).
Close to My Fruitologist is a chocolate shop called Belle Fleur Fine Chocolates. I always go for the following chocolates:
- Rose – milk chocolate ganache with rosewater
- Strawberry and Cream – dark chocolate filled with whipped cream and strawberry
- Honeycomb Ravioli – smooth milk chocolate with hazelnut praline and crispy honeycomb chunks.
