Last Things First – chocolatesuze’s B’day 2009 [LNC Dessert House] (1 of 2)

It was chocolatesuze’s birthday recently and she decided to gather a group of Sydney bloggers together to celebrate. Now, being one of the more popular and well connected food bloggers in Sydney, this turned out to be one hell of a gathering!

Alright. You may be thinking to yourself:

“What gives, dude? Why the lame photo with only five desserts and a couple of people?”.

“Didn’t you just say that she was one of the more popular and well connected food bloggers in Sydney?”.

“Seriously of all places, why choose the one that has cheap looking IKEA knock-off tables that are such an obvious, heavy handed attempt to incite hunger and appetite by bombarding the senses with colours such as yellows and reds?”

Or perhaps not…

chocolatesuze is unique. Really unique. She’s the kind of unique that’ll break your train of thought and make you think “Wow, she’s unique”. The kind of unique that would have dessert for breakfast and breakfast for dinner. On the same day, no less! I kid you not.

In honour of this rather unique person and the celebration of her birthday, the post-party dessert post will come before the dinner party one (Part 2).

Menu front cover. See? Hungry colours…

LNC Dessert House is a dessert cafe located on Sussex St, Sydney. I would presume by its decor that it’s aimed at the young Asian market, with its bright colours and anime-style mascot character. Appropriate, considering its close proximity to Chinatown.

The store is open late throughout the week (2am for a Friday evening). This makes it not a bad place to move onto if you’ve left one of Sydney’s largest gathering of food bloggers at a masquerade-themed birthday party, and are looking to satisfy a lingering hunger after a decent but ultimately unfulfilling Japanese meal.

You know, just as an example.

Though we were more than eager to go with a light meal to complement the food at the party, our party of five generally stuck to desserts due to a lack of variety of hot foods.

In the words of the person who had this dessert, it was “um number 40… mango gelato.. mango something… lychee something… sticky ball things”.

Can you guess who this might be?

Red bean soup with sticky rice balls. Served warm if memory serves me well, but you can have it chilled as well.

Black sesame ice slush with macha (green tea) gelato and red beans. This was not a bad dessert, all things considered. Wasn’t happy with the texture of the gelato, as it had the gelatinous, vegetable gum mouth feel to it that cheap ice creams tend to have (something I’m not a fan of). However, the flavour combination worked well and was quite refreshing.

Curry fish balls (foreground), and Papaya with white fungus and lotus seed dessert. The curry fish balls were one of only a few hot, savoury dishes that was available on the menu at the time. The only other one I can recall are the chicken wings.

For me, the curry balls had an off-putting spicy, fishy smell that kept me from trying them out. The others didn’t seem to complain when they had it so I imagine that it was ok. It just wasn’t for me.

An off-the-menu dessert of Chocolate and coffee gelatos served with longon fruits.

    Hi Iron Chef Shellie! She's quite a lot like how see reads on her blog & twitter :)

    Hi Belle! Yes, these photos were taken with that monster. Thanks for the complements, though it's all tool and not much artist.

    lol at the word verification.

    Hi Betty! It's not a bad place to check out if it's late night and you're in the area.

    Hi Stephcookie! Thanks. It was a nice way to end a fabulous night!

    Hi Helen! Thanks and she's certain is a one-of-a-kind :)

    Hi chocolatesuze! Yes, very unique. However, now not in the way I thought. Twitter survey results to support my argument: fail!

    Hi FFichiban! You know, didn't know brinner was a word until you mentioned it.

    Having read the wikipedia's entry on it, it makes me wonder whether you're the author to that entry…

    Hi Betty! I'm starting to get into Asian desserts such as this. Not the best but great considering the area and the time it's open until.

    Hi YaYa! You eat dessert for breakfast as well? :)

    Hi Tina! Not really an after-party in a traditional sense. Just dessert :)

    Hi Zina! Give it a go and let us know how it was for you! :)

    Hi Ellie! Thanks. Interesting verification word.

    Hi Yas! Give it a go and let us know what you think. Kind of wished that there was an equivalent place for Japanese desserts!
