Devon Cafe, Surry Hills

Yes yes this is a second post! I just couldn’t resist going back after hearing about the ultimate toastie! I had only missed this special addition by a week last time I went! This time, we had a 40 minute wait for the table – the most painful wait ever! We were tired and hungry and the truffle-goodness wafting throughout the cafe was just torture!

The magic muffin is so good it deserves a paragraph for itself! Slabs of nutella combined with banana chunks to make the ultimate muffin! We shared one while waiting and I just had to buy another two to take away. These are just too good not to share with loved ones =)

The Food Zoo experience: Loving the trend of touch-screen ordering! Food is often served within minutes of ordering (bear in mind, you can’t change the order if you’ve made a mistake!) And gone are the days where you wave your arms around like a crazy woman for the attention of the waiters. At the press of a button you can order food and drinks, request service and even get the bill! There’s a huge (albeit weird) range of items on the menu – hot pot, Japanese style pizza, sushi, sashimi, ramen, soba, udon, fried rice, fried noodle – you name it. A little bit of something for everyone! My favourite was the ox-tongue (so thick, delicious and grilled/seasoned to perfection!) and the iced green-tea latte. Dessert is the standard Japanese icecream (green tea, sesame or vanilla) so we opted for something with more selections… Watch out for the Passionflower post coming up!
