ZenQ Desserts - Chatswood

Feeling like a snack after a friend's wedding which was around Chatswood, I eyed this dessert place as we drove past in the car. I'd been talking about and craving mango snow ice (ice which is shaved in super thin slices that when you spoon it up, it's as light as eating snow) for a while and as they had a picture of this dessert in the window, ZenQ Desserts was the only logical place for us to eat.

It was an odd time in the afternoon for desserts - not quite 'just after lunch', and at a slightly weird hour for desserts before dinner. Yet, there were still a few patrons in the shop. My hubby ordered the milk pudding with grass jelly and pearls. This was an average dish... nothing too special or spectacular. The pearls were chewy, the grass jelly bought about a slimy refreshingness to the dish whilst the milk pudding added the sweetness you'd want.

My mango snow ice came with a few idle cubes of mango. I would have appreciated more mango, but I guess in our current economic climate and non-mango season, it would have been too big an ask. The snow ice was soft and fluffy but didn't quite taste as awesome as the ones from HK. The flavour of the ice was a little off from what I had in mind, but it was still fluffy and melt-in-your-mouth goodness.

Not a bad chill out place. Average food. Most people were craving for the large toast cubes with cream and fruit fillings or honey and stuff... maybe we'll come back and see what that's like... maybe.
