When I read on Twitter that my favourite cafe, Cafe Ish in Surry Hills was closing, I was quite devasted. I felt so disappointed that I would not be able to eat my favourite dessert, the Chocolate Truffle Wattleseed cake ever again.
Luckily, shortly after on Twitter, Joshua who co-owns Cafe Ish announced that he was going to open up a milk bar in Redfern. I was so relieved and so excited.
The Milk Bar by Cafe Ish is located on Regent Street, and is quite close to Redfern Station. D and I managed to find parking in a nearby street.
When we finally found The Milk Bar by Cafe Ish, we were quite impressed. The new milk bar looked great, and unlike their previous cafe, Cafe Ish, The Milk Bar by Cafe Ish looked so spacious and bright.
As soon as D and I were allocated a table, D immediately went to check out the Pac Man arcade machine and I went to check the variety of desserts on display. (we do have our priorities).
I was so excited when I spotted the Malteaser Chocolate Tart that Joshua had mentioned on Twitter in the display cabinet. The Malteaser Chocolate Tart looked divine. I had to have one, so of course I ordered one to eat later.
Whilst at The Milk Bar by Cafe Ish, we of course ordered actual food. I ordered Ai’s Freakin Awesome Chicken Wings, a side serving of chips, a Bounty Milkshake and Hubby ordered the Super Choc Milkshake and a cheeseburger.
The milkshakes were both so delicious. The Milk Bar by Cafe Ish, uses proper good quality milk. I could definitely tell the difference, because I did not get sick from drinking the milkshake. (I am slightly allergic to certain brands of milk). I liked my Bounty Milkshake more, because it had all things coconut in my milkshake. The servings of the milkshakes were enormous. I got my milkshake to take away, and I was still sipping it ages after.
Ai’s Freakin Awesome Chicken Wings, a side serving of chips, and the cheeseburger, were all absolutely delicious.
Of course, being the dessert addict that I am, the main star of my whole visit, was the Malteaser Chocolate Tart. I ended up getting the Malteaser Chocolate Tart take away, because I was too full after lunch.
I managed to avoid eating the tart for many hours (yes I must be unwell), and I told Hubby that I would eat the tart for dessert after dinner. But alas, I could not resist, so I cheated and ate the Malteaser Chocolate Tart before dinner.
The Malteaser Chocolate Tart was in one word “Unbelievable”. I was in chocolate heaven eating the Malteaser Chocolate Tart. The chocolate mousse like filling was so creamy, smooth and delicious, that it melted in my mouth. The tart casing on the bottom of the Malteaser Chocolate Tart was not too thick and tasted buttery and amazing. I think I was officially in love!
I got so excited, that I tweeted to Joshua co-owner of The Milk Bar By Cafe Ish, that his Malteaser Chocolate Tart, was my new favourite dessert.
I cannot wait to go back to The Milk Bar By Cafe Ish to get another Malteaser Chocolate Tart fix. I also cannot wait to try the other delicious looking desserts that I saw in their display.
The Milk Bar by Cafe Ish is located at:
105 Regent Street, Redfern NSW 2016
