Review: Foodarama (Newtown)

After our post-cleaning Vietnamese lunch at Halong Bay we decided we had worked hard enough to earn dessert. We walked around, had terrible customer service at Pastizzi (it’s not the same since they had legal issues with one of the board members) and landed in Foodarama.

Foodarama is a cafe that doesn’t stand out, and I don’t say that in a negative way. The thing is that there’s nothing particular about its decor. It’s kinda camouflaged within the environment so I never felt compelled to trying it out.

Cakes in the display looked awesome and were made on the premises, which is usually a sign of freshness.

I had a pot of green tea and a flourless roasted macadamia, fig & pistachio cake. FYI, there were other few flourless options available. It was good, dense and not too sweet, just the way I like my cakes.

Alvaro had the almond, pistacchio & lemon syrup cake served with honey yoghurt. Not surprisingly, this was way sweeter than mine but very tasty, dense and moist. The honey yoghurt was a nice complement, although I would have preferred plain yoghurt to cut the sweetness of the cake.

Gladys had a slice of raspberry, apple & cinnamon bread toasted with no butter. It was a nice twist on the more traditional banana bread, with heaps of cinnamon and not extremely sweet.

Service was great, even when we went only for desserts we were well looked after from start to finish.

    1. Yeah, all settled. Regarding the food issue, each of us is cooking once a week, a bit challenging because we have to respect other people’s food choices but so far so good.
