Adriano Zumbo Dessert Train

Home > Sydney > Afternoon Tea | Dessert Bars
Published September 9th 2012
So, I've heard exciting news about the new Adriano Zumbo dessert train in Sydney, located in The Star at Pyrmont. A couple of friends and I decided to try it out and see what the fuss was about.

Zumbo, anyone?

So, this is what went down. First attraction was its big, bold, bright pink and neon coloured lights. It was separated into two sections, one, where you can shop for desserts and two, where you can dine in for the dessert train. When we arrived about 9pm, thought to be busy, there was only a few people ahead of us. We didn't wait too long to be seated! But by 10pm, the lines were definitely long.

On arrival to our seats, upon us was a dessert menu, spoon and fork, and a cup.

Dessert Menu

My first choice was something called Chocolate Namelaka. It wasn't as rich as I thought it would be. The cake with the little dollop of chocolate cream of some sort was nice, mixed with the salted caramel crunch. I also tried the Hazelnut Dacquoise - tasted like a Ferrero Rocher, but sweeter.

Chocolate Namelaka

Unusual flavours too.

Corn, Mango, Saffron and Spice Cake. Anyone?

Prices were at a reasonable range. Pink plates were $6, white plates at $5 and black plates at $10. The A La Carte Menu items were $12 each. They do, do specials on certain days during the week, like Wednesdays to Saturdays, pink and white plates are just $4 and black plates are $8. There's always something different each day you go to the dessert train.

I also secretly packed a small treat for myself to take home.
A pack of 6 is $15. On their own, they're $2.50 each.

Got a sweet tooth?
Adriano Zumbo's macarons for the take home!

Flavours: (from left to right):
Malted milkshake (fave!), salted butter popcorn, chocolate doughnut, peach ice tea, blackened vanilla and annunziata chocolate.

I recommend the malted milkshake - definitely a fave of mine. The annunziata chocolate was too much for me. After one bite it was so rich and filling. The salted butter popcorn was a hit for me. Not too salty but was just right. The blackened vanilla was nice. Not a flavour I would expect in my mouth, but it melted just right.

Middle: Salted Butter Popcorn
Not too salty but just right! Definitely something for the tastebuds to be excited for!

I definitely enjoyed my time at Adriano Zumbo's dessert train. So, if you just happen to be in The Star, go ahead - treat yourself or if you definitely have that sweet tooth, like me, dine in and take home some goodies.
