On a cold winter’s night when you’re craving some warm, rich, dessert – The Choc Pot is the perfect place to go! I couldn’t really decide what my favourite was between the salted caramel chocolate souffle and the molten chocolate fondant! Check it out for yourself!
Cute little boards for menu prices and specials
Small open kitchen area
Mr Souff – salted caramel waterfall into a light fluffy chocolate souffle ($12.00)
The Choc Pot – molten chocolate fondant ($12.00)
The Food Zoo experience: So. Much. Chocolate. Chocolate this, chocolate that. You just can’t really go wrong in this place. Unless it’s too much chocolate. In which case, match desserts with the recommended herbal teas! I’m loving this place!

7/1 Railway Parade
Burwood NSW 2134
As promised, the post which was meant to precede TeaPlus Burwood (as you can tell, I clearly get overexcited by dessert and jumped the gun on that post).
Mint’s special lemonade
Thick vermicelli lemongrass soup ($11.50)
Mint’s signature beef noodle soup with Australian wagyu cutes ($17.00)
Chicken salad congee ($13.00)
Lemongrass pork with rice ($12.00 extra for tomato rice)
The Food Zoo experience: Situated on the main road amongst a whole strip of other restaurants, you know it’s good when people area already waiting outside for an early dinner. Turnover is quite quick so the wait is never too long. I was surprised by the lemongrass pork which was served more as a stir-fry instead of grilled pork chop style but was tasty nevertheless. Portions were generous and the menu is maaaaaaaaassive (although who am I kidding, I always order pho). Highly recommending this place and I am officially labeling it as my go-to restaurant in Burwood!
226, Burwood Road
What a busy weekend! Trekking all over Sydney on a Saturday afternoon and finding myself stuck in Burwood traffic which was quite a bummer. Although I finally got to try this place after stumbling upon it on Philsosophy‘s blog (in addition to some awesome Pho at Mint – look out for this post over the next few days!) So at least all the running around all paid off!
Plant Milk Tea – Green Tea ($5.80)
Plant Milk Tea – Original with pearls ($5.80)
Plant Milk Tea – Taro ($5.80)
Three of the four flavours offered (hot chocolate also available)
The Food Zoo experience: These drinks are so adorable! The “soil” is made of crushed Oreos and separated from the tea with a layer of frothy foam. Unfortunately, all the drinks were only lukewarm when they arrived and the biscuits added a weird salty taste to the drink which wasn’t too pleasant. However, the actual flavours were nice and strong so I think you wouldn’t probably be better off getting other drink items which are less fancy! There are also other snack items on the menu which I thought I should mention although we were really just too full from dinner!
Finally, a quick note about the efficiency of the staff. I think only in Asian restaurants would they ask patrons to change seats after already being seated. But at least it helped us get a table of four seated in 15 minutes instead of 50! I was impressed!
