Chocolate Mousse Dome with Hazelnuts was pretty nice.

Oreo Sundae. Nothing to Rave about. Nothing very creative. Just vanilla ice-cream with some Oreos thrown into it.

Green Tea Smoothie. Not bad.

Overall I found the experience mediocre. The desserts are nothing to rave about. and the waitstaff don’t do anything beyond serving you.

Twelve Spices Lao & Thai

Heaps of people are flocking to Holy Basil within the South Western Sydney Region for some great Thai food. But if you want to avoid the crowds and have something just as good – I would suggest driving about 5 minutes up the road and trying out Twelve Spices Lao & Thai.

Raw Garlic. Chilli. Garlic. Mint. Fish Sauce. Served on fresh cabbage, onions, carrot. Very intense flavours. The prawns aren’t really overpowering at all.

 

Padseeew_vegies

 

Pad See Ew Vegetarian. Must have at every Thai Restaurant I go to. Pad Thai seems to be the go to dish for most people, but i think Pad See Ew is much better.

Strawberry_Fruitshake

 

Strawberry Shake. Quite Tasty.

Part 2 review coming soon.

Mayvers: All natural Peanut & Cacao Spread

Mayvers all natural peanut & cacao spread

 

Found this in the shops today.

It is exactly as described on the Jar – all natural, and no added anything.

If you are after something that is commonly sweet in peanut and chocolate spreads then this is not for you.  But if you are after something that accentuates the natural taste of Peanuts and Cacao then give this a go.

One of their Green Juices. It was a little warm. A little ice would have made it better.

Raw Vegan Lasagna. They used Zucchini slices instead of pasta sheets. Very nice.  The dressing/sauce is what makes this dish.

 

 

 

Ainsley Harriott: Sundried Tomato & Garlic Cous Cous

Found this in the supermarket today. Costs about $2.50AUD and contains two packets in it.

Basically you empty the contents of the satchet into a bowl, pour some hot water, wait, then fluff it up. Pretty easy. Pretty average tasting. But good if you are after a cheap and easy meal at work.

Taro Desert with red beans, sesame ice-cream and Glutinous Balls. The deserts here are pretty big so I recommend sharing – even though we didn’t.
