Alas, an opportunity to visit Astonish after what felt like ages since I indulged in a sinful piece of sweet! Have to admit that this trip was pretty unexpected as we had no idea where to head to after dinner in Chinatown. We could have gone to Dessert Story for Asian inspired desserts or Gelatissimo for gelato or even the newly opened St.Louis but perhaps another day. On the flip side, rumour has it that San Churros is opening another outlet in the heart of Chinatown soon? ;)
Astonish is not exactly located in the middle of Gouger Street but if you don't mind walking for at most 7 minutes, you are bound to find a very homely decorated dessert place that has an interesting array of wine selection to cater for the alcoholics out there. And by homely, I mean it. I felt at home just from starring at the book shelves and chimney (wonder if Santa Claus is going to make an appearance for Australia's Christmas in July?).
