Glebe Point Diner, Glebe

hello there.
i hope you enjoyed a very merry christmas, i sure did.

last week, i (laura) met up with fellow mafia member r for a pre christmas dinner at glebe point diner. it was a delightful dinner & when we came to the dessert ordering portion, we ordered with this blog in mind. don't say we never think of you because we do.

i squealed upon seeing both mango & passionfruit on the menu, i knew exactly what i was ordering. if you don't know me then you wouldn't know about the obsession i have with fruit. i love fruit more than i should ever openly admit, fruit makes everything better in my eyes. when i'm sad i will eat a mango & all is right in the world.

the first item on their dessert menu read:
mango & passionfruit salad with pineapple granita.

sold. i ordered this dessert within seconds of being asked by my waiter, who was shocked by my excitement. i announce to him & half the diner that i loved fruit ... LOUDLY.

upon tasting this salad, i dove in deep. i wanted the mango & i wasn't coming out without it. luckily, we agreed that the mango should be on top of the granita & we did a minor swap of ingredients. this salad was summer, i looked like summer & tasted like summer. i think summer has arrived & this dessert is proof of that.

i will now hand you over to r for her description of the next dessert...

"I think the testament of a dessert’s awesomeness is when you don’t want to share it – so needless to say, I was pretty pleased when Laura let me finish this one off to myself!

This lovely scoop of mousse was super-creamy, but still aerated – each spoonful had substance, but not so much that you could feel your throat caving in with cream. The thickness of this dessert, rather, was in the flavour – a rich, sweet dark chocolate that I’d love to know the brand of.

The syrupy slices of strawberry at the bottom of the dish were also a delight. (I'm not all about the refined sugars - I enjoy fruit too!) The sliver of wafer was nothing special - obviously more there for the fance rather than the taste. All in all though, I'd definitely say that this mousse was streets ahead!"
