25 May Monga Sweet Cafe, Melbourne CBD
After our hot pot dinner we decided to head out to Monga Sweet Cafe on Russell St for dessert. Monga Sweet Cafe is a sister store to Dessert Lounge in Box Hill, which was popular among a number of people in the group.
The decor was very Asian-inspired, down to the red, plastic stools and Chinese calendar (the one with the date in giant figures and a lot of information that I can’t understand).
I can’t say much about the desserts themselves, seeing as I didn’t taste any of them. The one that surprised us the most was the grass jelly dessert. First of all, it was warm. There was also A LOT more liquid than we expected, because the photo in the menu showed it as being relatively dry.
