Caught up with my biffle, John, for a food date. I had found out about The Dessert Story from the many pictures my university friends were posting on facebook from their visits there. From a glance, it was as if it was Adelaide's version of Sydney's MeetFresh which is a place I've been to FOUR times! Yes, it's that amazing and I expected no less of The Dessert Story. In fact, one of my friends told me it was a lot better than MeetFresh.
So in I walked with high hopes. The place was very busy and we waited in line. To be honest, we had expected it to be this busy so I wasn't disappointed. As John and I flicked through their eye-catching menu which was filled with pictures of the desserts (making it easier to choose what we wanted), we came across a range of delightful-looking desserts, which if I remembered correctly, were the snow iced desserts. However as we were here for the first visit, we wanted to try their signature range - the herbal jellies.
We chose to share the honey-bean, pearls and glutinous cake (to be honest, I don't remember exactly which one it was). It was $6.80.
John loved it, but he's never had anything like this before. Compared to MeetFresh, I don't think it matches up the the standard, but I'm willing to give The Dessert Story another try next time. Maybe we'll try the iced desserts?

- Hi, I'm Vivian and I'm a uni student obsessed with fitness and food (I know, it doesn't exactly go hand-in-hand). I'll have my "no eating out" times and my "I deserve to try new food" moments. I'm on a mission to try new places, mainly around the Adelaide CBD, on a student budget. Rarely you'll be seeing expensive, fine dining on my blog, but that's an occasional thing. I have a lot of posts on Sydney restaurants too, because that's where I spend all my holidays. Read on for my pictures and opinions on the food Adelaide has to offer! Got something on your mind? Leave a comment - I would love to hear from you! For more food pictures - check out http://instagram.com/vvnhuynh
