Granted the weather has taken a cool turn with light drizzle all day, but far from cold, and hardly reason enough to avoid venturing out. Especially when there is a ‘Champagne chocolate marquise’ on offer served with crème anglaise and crushed pistachios. Layered and mousse-like on a thin chocolate base, the combined flavour is that of Sara Lee chocolate pound cake but in creamier form. The anglaise is rich in vanilla seeds and neither thick nor gluggy, while the pistachios provide texture.
Apparently the night before they’d had one pre-reserved table and 25 walk-ins, while on the Saturday we were the only ones there all night. Go on, Sydney, get out there and eat!
