Sydney cafe sells ice-cream with a quirky twist
IF you are ever planning on visiting the bustling capital city of New South Wales, Sydney, you better leave lots of room for dessert because it has no shortage of restaurants, cafes, and dessert joints selling the sweetest treats you have ever tasted.
From fluffy warm pancakes piled on with heaps of chocolate sauce-drizzled fruits and whipped cream to decadent, one-of-a-kind artisan cakes and donuts laden with sugar, there is something for every sweet-toothed traveler.
That is why they say in Sydney, every day is cheat day.
Tucked away in the heart of the Surry Hills, known for its stylish global eateries and hip coffee joints, is the humble and friendly Devon Cafe – where it all began.
The establishment is known for serving bunch favorites with a quirky twist but also a couple of dessert-y snacks which have become fast favorites with locals.
It first rolled out soft-serve ice-cream on its menu as a nod to the Asian soft-serve craze. After which, Devon Cafe launched the now-legendary DD Special, a cheeky item which combines the best of both worlds.
The DD Special features awesomely seasoned crunchy and chunky hot chips with a side of matcha (tea) and hojicha (Japanese green tea) creamy soft-serve in one cup. It is savory with a subtle hint of tea flavors, perfect for indulging during the summer.
Recently, Devon Cafe is continuing to expand the scope of its Asian fusion food tradition by introducing yet another novelty dessert which combines soft-serve with a phenomenon that is well-loved by people around the world – bubble tea (boba).
Customers who love bubble tea just the way it is i.e. with a traditional milk tea base will love the Bobba Gump. The soft-serve is flavored like milk tea and served on black tapioca pearls with salted milk foam and brownie soil.
If you prefer to switch things up, go for the super Instagrammable taro bubble tea with purple taro soft-serve, coconut foam, bubur cha cha (coconut milk sweet soup), and taro syrup.
Matcha maniacs, on the other hand, should get a taste of the one with roasted green tea, herbal glass jelly, sweet red bean, and cheese foam.
Sounds like something you would fancy sinking your teeth into?
