Dessert anyone?

by Heather C on February 2, 2014

I’ve been thinking about the fabulous desserts I’ve had in recent times around Wellington (prompted by another couple of really good inhalings over the weekend).

I think we’re pretty spoilt with the number and variety of options frankly.

Some that stick in my mind (and I do confess to eating a few, so these truly are the ones that have stood out for various reasons):

  • Caliente dessertMatterhorn’s house-made ricotta hazelnut and raisin donuts with cinnamon, lemon and vanilla curd.
  • An amazing warm coconut rice pudding with sultanas and candied orange at WBC.
  • The delicious array of Mediterranean sweet pastries and cakes in the Lazeeza cabinet.
  • A deliciously sticky (yep and large) Strawberry Fare apple pie with caramel, ¬†toffee and vanilla bean ice cream.
  • The Charley Noble ice creams inspired by apple pie, and the chocolate candied bar with caramel popcorn (I didn’t eat both, truly!).
  • Anything with dulce de leche at El Matador.
  • The camote enmielado, horchata, yoghurt, queso de rancho and peanut palaqueta (braised orange kumara, palm sugar, organe, yoghurt and scatterings of peanut palaqueta)¬†at Caliente (pictured).
  • And believe it or not, the butterscotch brownie at Movenpick with a scoop of maple walnut ice cream.

Some other places that are always on my list if I’m thinking about dessert (but I haven’t been for a while for any specific offering to be fresh in mind):

And that’s just all the stuff straight off the top of the head (errr, stomach).

So where are your favs?
