GFM 2008 Sugar Hit: Shangri-La, The Rocks, Sydney (28 Oct 2008)

176 Cumberland Street, The Rocks, Sydney NSW 2000

The licorice infused strawberries were nice and large although for the life of me couldn't taste any licorice at all. The fraiche ice-cream in the shot glass was very yummy, more please. The service was good and explained the dessert menu well. There was live music as well which made for a pleasant experience.

As a side note I would have to say though it's probably the noisiest dessert I've tried to eat with a small spoon on a glass plate and trying to carefully dissect the strawberries and shortbread biscuit into smaller pieces, clink-clink-clink!

Heavenly Strawberry Delight: Combination of strawberry and rhubarb mascarpone dacquoise with cream fraiche ice-cream accompanied by licorice infused strawberries, complemented with Brown Brothers Cienna Dessert wine.
