I love my lemongrass. This was pretty good, but I’m sure I’ve had better from Taste Baguette – maybe it was a different store? Wholemeal bread isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, either. Overall, the experience was disappointing and left me wishing I’d spent me $10 elsewhere. There are better things to be dropping a $10 note on in Sydney.

Il Grappolo in Rozelle

I had an amazing pizza last night with really disappointing service. I ordered takeaway for dinner, from Il Grappolo in Rozelle. It had a great rating on Urbanspoon and I was craving delicious pizza!

Alarm bells started when I called up to order, after perusing the online menu from their own website, which stated free delivery. I was told that there was a minimum purchase price of $20, after asking for the Prosciutto pizza, which WAS $20 on the website. I was charged $21 upon delivery.

I didn’t question it at the time as I don’t like to cause a fuss, but first of all the woman on the phone made it sound as though the pizza was LESS than the minimum $20 order for free delivery, and then I was asked for MORE than the purchase price on a supposedly “free delivery”.

It’s especially sad because the pizza was so yummy! I’m not a fan of misleading websites and businesses that are happy to lure people in with false promises. If you’re not happy with a minimum $20 order for free delivery (to a location which is 850 metres away!) then say so, amend your policies to a minimum order you are happy with, or tell the customer on the phone the true price and don’t advertise free delivery.

Milkaholic not chocaholic

Dessert at Milkaholic. It was nothing special. The problem I had with dessert these days is that if it’s not done well, there’s five more dessert cafes which will do it well in a similar price range. One example of poor execution is the use of sub standard chocolate syrup. I’m used to quality melted chocolate – maybe I’ve been spoilt.

Finding a cherry pit in the morello cherries was another downside.

A slight Asian influence keeps their range of desserts diverse and interesting. I wouldn’t go there again, simply because there are other dessert cafes I’ve not yet been to.
