Devour dessert bar - dessert goodness

Prospect Road is fast becoming known for its boutiques and restaurants.  Driving down this road you see a multicultural mixture of cuisines available to the public, one of which is Devour dessert bar.  I must admit that I have been here a few times already and enjoy the laid back atmosphere that exists within this establishment.  I do have a sweet tooth and like to try different, quirky desserts so this place was definitely for me.  Devour has a number of specials which frequently change which always sound interesting and appealing. 

Bombe Alaska - This was a dish with the wow factor looks visually appealing but was a little too sweet.  Adding a little acidity to the dish would have cut through the sweetness and made it easier to eat.  Overall, still a good dish to try.

For some reason, milkshakes remind me of my childhood so when I visit here, I always go a milkshake!  I looked at the specials board and saw the 'Popcorn Milkshake' which immediately tickled my fancy.  I didn't know what to expect but I was very pleasantly surprised.  It was not salty at all and had the essence of popcorn which I loved......if it was available again, I will be getting it!  If you like popcorn, and you get a chance, give it a go.

The peanut butter pannacotta was also something that I really enjoyed.  Now this dish will definitely polarise.  You will like it if you like peanut butter, but if you don't, I would stay away - I like peanut butter.  For me, the pannacotta was everything a good PC should be - tasty, light, smooth with the right amount of 'wobble'.

The chocolate brownie with peanut butter icecream was also nice (note I had this on a different night).  The brownie was more fondant than brownie - dig into the dish and you get a molten mix of chocolate and peanut - rich and delicious, but for some could be a little too heavy.  The icecream also had a very big hit of peanut butter taste - note to self, next time I am here...try something without peanut butter.

I was with friends that had the lemon meringue and banana cake dishes - they loved them and went back 2 days later for some other delicious treats.

If you are looking for some modern takes on the traditional, then Devour is worth a visit.  The place is small so be willing to wait to get in on some nights.

  1. Let me loose there and "devour" might not be enough to cover what I'm going to do. What can I say? I've got one very mean sweet tooth.
