SMH Good Food Month Kings Cross Hotel Sugar Hit 2008

The Sugar Hit is held on the Kings Cross Hotel's 1st floor balcony. On the Sugar Hit menu tonight is the Warm Chocolate fondant & Frangelico Chocolate Sauce, White Chocolate Panna Cotta & Grand Marnier Rhubarb and Bitter Chocolate Sorbet & Champagne Raspberry. Our waiter tells us that the sorbet is a sauce instead (although truth be told, most of us don't hear him and wonder where the sorbet has gone when we receive it).

The tasting platter certainly looks impressive. The chocolate fondant is gooey soft and rich with a thick river of chocolate sauce spurting volcano like from the molten centre. The glossy white chocolate pannacotta is very wobbly, almost too wobbly and the champagne raspberry appears to be frozen raspberries soused in champagne with a sweet honey flavoured triangular softish biscuit on top (made soft from the rhubarb).

At midnight we turn into pumpkins so we head off home. Past the notorious Four Seasons chicken takeaway shop that has us chuckling earlier in the taxi at its almost obscene window display heaped with every sort of fast and greasy food you could imagine that would certainly help some of the Kings Cross Punters steam on ahead in the early hours of the morning. We prefer to use the Sugar Hit as our sustenance.
