eggless: march '14.

Mad March is technically over since all the festivities have left Adelaide, but that doesn't mean the madness has left the Eggless kitchen.  If anything, the night we visited for the March menu was even more packed than usual.  I don't really know how that's possible but it was.

Coconut Pancakes with Caramelised Apples & Citrus Syrup: $9.50
I wanted to love these, I really did.  It's pancakes! It's coconut! But alas, no.  It was not to be.  The pancakes were thick but lacked any real coconut flavour.  There were a few pieces of shredded coconut here and there within the mixture but ultimately tasted like nothing.  The vanilla ice-cream was probably the best part of this dish.

Nutella Creme Brulee: $9.50
In stark contrast to the pancakes, I loved this.  A pot full of smooth, rich, creamy chocolate and hazelnut cream custard is where my heart lies, and the sugar crust was crackingly sweet and crisp.  It's reminiscent of Yogo, a primary school favourite, but more grownup and less factory-produced.

Red Velvet, White Chocolate & Passionfruit Cheesecake: $9.50
Lately my stomach has been drawn towards red velvet options, so this dish was an obvious choice. The cake has three layers: chocolate base, red velvet cream cheese and white chocolate ganache for the topping. The red velvet was strong in this, as it always should be, and the ganache was there to back it up.  The passionfruit couli was too sour for my liking, but I can see how it's needed for those who don't like concentrated sweetness.
