What are dessert evenings you ask? Well, imagine not one but up to three courses of purely desserts. Yes, dear reader you read correctly. Three beautifully plated creations of sugary goodness. If you do not walk out of Cafe Rosamond in a food coma-like state then something is seriously wrong.
They are also not your usual chocolate cake, panacotta or creme brulee dishes. Using molecular gastronomy techniques and unusual flavour pairings, each dish will play with your senses or even enhance them. You will often wonder what ingredient you are placing in your mouth.
The menu changes regularly so it makes for a return visit. The dessert only menu offerings are currently available every Thursday evening from 7pm - 11pm.
The cafe interior is small and therefore difficult to sit large groups of more than four people. It is easier to seat 2 or 3 people. They don't take bookings unfortunately. However, the experience is worth the wait. You can leave your details and wander to a nearby bar for a drink. The atmosphere is perfect for a date idea if the other half has a sweet tooth.
The starter test-tube shots start from $9. You can nominate to have one course ($20), two courses ($30) or the maximum experience of three courses for $40.
About the chef: Pierre Roelofs is the pastry chef behind this fine establishment. He previously worked at Monsieur Truffle and did chocolate evenings there.
Here are some photos of my previous experience at Cafe Rosamond. Apologies for the quality as it was dimly lit inside and I did not bring my DSLR that night.
1. Test tube starter ($9): cola flavoured/panacotta like filling with some whiz fizz at the top end to finish off the experience.
