Dessert Kitchen (Invited)

I was invited to the dessert kitchen in Chinatown, Melbourne with some other people that I just met there. The Dessert Kitchen is a popular Taiwanese dessert café available internationally in some countries including Australia.

The shop is located on Little Bourke St inside the Chinatown area. The place is modern-designed with mostly greyish and white tone furniture. It has two floors seating space and the kitchen located on the first floor. We were seated on the second floor and not long after that, we got to be served with hot chocolate. Their signature hot chocolate comes with a cute little bear-shaped marshmallow served on a wooden board. The chocolate drink was served warm and sweet, but not too sweet. Especially when combined with the marshmallow. No additional sugar needed. When the marshmallow is put into the cup, it looks really cute where the bear floats atop of chocolate pool. Then you can just stir it into the drink and it blended nicely.

The second dessert was a special Pinna Colada Coconut Bowl. It was mango sorbet on a coconut bowl, topped with sliced mango, strawberry, kiwi, blueberry, caramelized popcorn, and sprinkled with grated coconut. The taste was absolutely rich and refreshing. It was sweet, sour and creamy, definitely recommended. The appearance of the dessert itself was also so pretty, it looked summer-ish with a tiny umbrella put on side. For you who love mango as much as I do, this is the one dessert for you. Besides those two desserts, we were able to order anything else from their menu. I decided to try their award-winning signature dessert called Purple in Love. Just like the name, purple. Can you gues what fruit was in it? Yes it contained lots of types of grapes in the dish. There were Kyoho grape seaweed balls, grape shaved ice, mini rice balls, grapes, and taro mochi ice cream. It was cold and a bit sweet. I really loved the taro mochi ice cream. This dessert was like a complete choice for grape-lovers and even though I am not huge fan of grapes, I liked it. It is absolutely better for sharing because trying only one dessert for yourself won’t be enough.

There are many other desserts that I haven’t tried but would love to try in the future. I have visited the place a couple of time before the invitation, and I can assure you it is amazing. The staffs were all very friendly and kind, but some of them don’t speak English very well. However, still my overall experience was satisfying.
