Tantalising Sweet Treats
Sabor in the Hunter Dessert Bar just got sweeter for me and my brood. Sabor is the place to be for all of us with that sweet tooth. The place is easy to find, set in the midst of a working vineyard down Broke Road and offers plenty of parking. As we walked in, we were mesmerised by the view of the wine country opening up through the large glass windows. The ambiance within the large open space of the bar was rather relaxed and gave that upmarket feeling. Upon entering this sweet spot, we did pat our selves on the back for planning ahead and reserving a table. As it was lunchtime, the place was swarming with patrons who were marching in for that high of sweets after a hearty lunch in one of the surrounding eateries.

The staff at the bar were quite bubbly and friendly taking their time to explain how its done to the newcomers. Understandably with such a large crowd walking in through the doors the place did become rather noisy, but this did not disturb my impatient taste buds which were all ready to indulge themselves in those sweetness on offer. Mind you, there is plenty of sweetness to go around: from gooey chocolaty goodness to melting caramels, fruit sensations and nuts all standing in rows, tempting the eyes that stare from the other side of the glass cabinets. The array of over fifty types of deliciousness was so overwhelming that we were left at a cross road on what to choose.

Breathtaking views


Refusing to settle for just a single taste, I opted to go with the Sabor tasting plate. The plate came with five kinds of delicate shapes of miniature sweetness, all plated in a row with a dash of passion fruit pulp here and a drop of raspberry syrup there. These intricate creations were presented with the hope of pleasing the eye before getting to the taste buds. Every bite I dug into was different from the next and was capable of making my taste buds scream for more.

Chocolate goodness!


The chocolate volcano was my daughter's choice of indulgence. This runny, thick chocolate goodness was indeed the ultimate heaven for all chocolate lovers. Unless you are absolutely ravenous I would recommend the volcano be shared with another, as it is one dessert that is quite rich in flavor and big in volume. Did I mention that it came paired with a sumptuous cup of thick creamy homemade vanilla ice cream? Well, it did and the combination proved to be out of this world.

Sweetness on a plate


These stunning individual desserts don't come cheap with a price tag costing for around $10 to $15 dollars. In my sweet lovers opinion, every cent spent was worth it. Having had the ultimate chocolate hit, not to mention then numerous other flavours at play, we left Sabors Dessert Bar with happiness plastered across our faces vowing to return soon.

Those desserts look gorgeous. What is the one that looks a bit like a brick wall in the first picture?
