Miss Train and I decided that we needed a sugar hit and was banking on Matcha Mylkbar but since it was super full (it was a one hour wait? OH EM GEE!!), we decided to walk around St Kilda and see where we could drop by. Eventually we got tired of walking and ended up at Veludo (it was also in the Entertainment Book, SCORE!). So we plopped out tooshies down and looked over the menu.
Since we both absolutely adored chocolate, we could not pass up a chance to have the chocolate fondue. When it came out, we were super duper excited (almost leaped out of our chairs one could say). The set consists of marshmallow, apples and strawberries. This was such a disappointing chocolate fondue. The chocolate itself was super bitter which we found out was 80% cocoa but it wasn’t the good tasting bitter. We could not eat the chocolate at all. The staff were super lovely about it, asking the chef if they could sweeten it but it was a no can do (at least she tried!).
Chocolate Fondue – $20
Miss Train was the one who had introduced me to panna cottas many years ago so of course, it was appropriate that we got the yoghurt panna cotta. This wasn’t a panna cotta at all. It had a very herb-y taste to it (which was kinda weird) with a syrup surrounding it. It wasn’t very soft but more solid which we both didn’t like.
Yoghurt Panna Cotta – $10
If you’re looking for a place to chill and have dessert, this isn’t it. If you want chocolate, try san churros. Since I didn’t have any of the savoury food, I can’t comment on it so I guess I’ll have to come back to check that out. If it’s anything like their desserts, I don’t really have high hopes.
