A chocoholic Belgian, TimmyC and a foodie walked into
a bar Frugii dessert laboratory.
It sounds like the beginning of a joke but it was my reality two weekends ago as we slipped away from the Multicultural festival and took a friend of mine to Frugii Dessert Laboratory for the first time.
We were greeted and warned by the lovely owner John Marshall, not to panic as the cake cabinets were currently empty but his wonderful wife Ed was on her way with the second drop off of cakes. We sat there patiently waiting for her with an ice cream in hand of course.
We all crowded around when the goods got delivered but we let John put them on cardboard first instead of eating directly from the box 😉I let my Belgian friend and TimmyC decide what to order while I was instagramming at the table (yes I have a problem). What happened next shouldn’t have really surprised me but it did anyway.
Ummm sorry, did you just come back with 6 pastries AND ice cream for dessert between the three of us? TimmyC was “restrained” enough not to get one of each flavour as we had recently had the Earl Grey with lemon (which was delicious). We wanted to try all the other flavours that we hadn’t gotten around to yet.
Lemon meringue; caramel; dark chocolate and raspberry; rose, vanilla and raspberry ($6.00). Although they were all tasty, we all had different ‘favourites’. My favourite was the lemon meringue, while the other sweet tooths preferred the dark chocolate and raspberry or the caramel.We came, we saw, we ate. *photo courtesy of TimmyCI don’t know if this post should count as a “re-run” since I’ve been there so many times but it is my second written post about the Frugii Dessert Laboratory.
