Chanoma Cafe boasts a range of matcha beverages and desserts.

Chanoma Cafe Matcha Float

I tried the matcha float the first time I came, a yummy not overly sweet matcha latte topped with matcha soft serve. It was amazing! I mixed the soft serve into the drink to make it sweeter.

The second time I had the matcha frappe with delicious whipped cream on top… which was also great mixed in with the rest of the drink!

I’m a huge fan of Chanoma Cafe’s drinks, but haven’t tried the Jap dogs yet – by all reports they’re pretty fantastic. Definitely try Chanoma if you’re a fan of matcha or desserts!

Roll & Roll and Chatime

Roll & Roll has two locations in the City centre. I have only visited the Bank St premises. It’s opposite Australian Pizza House (oh the pizza-filled memories…). Have you visited before?

Roll & Roll make their sushi as you wait. They specialise in scrumptious (albeit more expensive than your usual) “inside out” style rolls – think Californian but with other flavour combinations. They come in four or eight piece sets. Luckily the four piece sets are pretty much half the price of the eight piece sets, so it’s easy to get four of one and four of the other. I bought the Dragon roll (4 pieces @ $4.00) which is comprised of an eel and  white wine sauce, eel, cream cheese and cucumber. I also had the Caterpillar roll (same price) but can’t remember the ingredients – salmon, fish roe, avocado – you get the picture! A touch of wasabi and a little soy sauce and you have umami.

I have to make the call and say that, while expensive, I think this is probably the best tasting and most adventurous sushi you are likely to find in Adelaide. Disagree? Tell me what you like. If I haven’t tried it, I’m always up for new food adventures!

For dessert, I couldn’t go past Chatime. What’s your favourite flavour combination from Chatime? I have had the Peach QQ with coconut jelly before. This time I had the Matcha Latte with grape jelly. I love fruit flavoured jelly though my favourite bubble tea addition is still chocolate pudding, something I’ve only ever had in the China Town in Melbourne (ok that’s ONE thing they have over us!) I also love Chatime in general. It’s cute, with a fantastic range of drinks. Of course, prices are higher as well. $5.20 for the regular in this case, including 50 cent add-on for grape jelly.

I got this with half sugar and it was perfect. I love how it’s half green and half white when they serve it. I love the grape hubba bubba taste of the jelly. It’s perfect.
