Restaurant Review: Adriano Zumbo, Balmain

16 Jan

Oh yes, it’s Adriano Zumbo again! I’m leaving Sydney soon, so I decided to explore more before I leave, so here I am at Adriano Zumbo’s Balmain store. I went there pretty late, 30 minutes before it closed, so there weren’t a lot of choices left. I was going to try the Grandma’s Soap, but they didn’t have it, so I ended up choosing Snnowmanoor and Man Goes Peanuts. I had a pretty bumpy bus ride back home and the weather wasn’t really good; but luckily the staff put some tape to secure them, and they still look very nice when I got home.

Adriano Zumbo's Snnowmanoor

Snnowmanoor (AUD$9) 

Official description: Pâté a choux, bubble tea custard, lychee coconut crème légère, lychee gel, coconut crunch  

This cake is delicious, a combination of different texture! In the middle, there is lychee gel and a sweet paste inside, which I’m not too sure what it is, it looked like red bean paste, which I’m sure I’m wrong. Or maybe it’s the bubble tea custard, but I don’t know why it is named so, because nothing tasted like bubble tea. I also like the bottom layer, the coconut crunch, which gives a different texture from the crème légère and cream puff. This is probably one of my favourite cakes from Adriano Zumbo!

Adriano Zumbo's Man Goes Peanuts

Man Goes Peanuts (AUD$9)

Official description: Peanut butter crunch, mango compote, mango burnt honey mousse, pain 

I love this one even more! This cake is also a combination of different texture, the crunchiness of the peanut butter crunch, the creamy mango mousse, the bread with peanuts and the jelly mango compote. After eating the cake, your mouth will be filled with the taste of mango and peanut!

Environment: N/A

Service: 7.5/10 (Better than the staff at Manly)

Food: 8.5 /10 (These two cakes fit my taste more than the previous one! Delicious!)

Overall: Not sure if I would have a chance to try more cakes before I leave, but the cakes at Adriano Zumbo definitely have the best presentation! Will try to come back again some day!

Address: 296 Darling St, Balmain, NSW 2040
