Bracegirdles, Glenelg

Glenelg always reminds me of summer days long gone – walking along Jetty Road with giant scoops of icecream, warm sand between my toes and old friends. As we get older it gets harder to meet new people so taking this chance to get to know foodie bloggers The Smiling Food and Louis Fameli a bit better :) Bracegirdles along with Andersons and Royal Copenhagen were the places I loved during high school – I was hoping it lived up to my old love for it.

The fondue looked gorgeous and actually slightly healthy. The chocolate was delicious for the first 5 minutes but got burnt with fruit starting to taste like popcorn – we blew out the candle and accepted that this was a lost cause. Pretty disappointing especially with the $22 price tag :/

Icecream bomb had baileys icecream filled with chewy, sweet scorched almonds. A little jar contained what I initially thought was melted chocolate but poured onto the icecream it hardened like ice magic (I swear I only looked away for 5 seconds!) Sadly the whole thing was pretty average leaving me wishing I had gone to Royal Copenhagen instead especially since it was down the road …

The strawberries and cream chocolate was cute as a button with a strawberry filling and white chocolate top and casing. I’m not the biggest fan of white chocolate so all I could taste was sweetness. Louis’s chocolate was delicious (I forgot the name but it’s the red one at the back)  – bitter smooth dark chocolate with a kick of spicy chilli to end it all.

Tasty chocolate but I may only just stick to that in the future – preferably in block form where I melt the chocolate myself if I wanted fondue.

    Oh what a shame about the fondue, especially at that price! It sounds a bit hit and miss :)

      Haha true true, at least next time (if there is a next time) I’ll know to blow out the candle early on :3 The chocolate was quite nice when it wasn’t burnt.
