Four Friends + A Giveaway!

Last month, my husband and I were invited to taste some chocolate treats at Four Friends Café

It is certainly interesting to know how the name of the cafe came about...

How cute is that macaron's board!

At a closer look, we noticed that they claimed that their chocolates are all handmade, were all organic and did not contain any artificial colours or flavours! That made us even more curious and excited to try them. 

Surprisingly, we've not heard of this place before even though we often go to the area in Crows Nest.

The day we were there, there was a birthday celebration, and it was packed!

So we took our time to check out the store and look at the goodies she had on display!
There were so many truffles to choose from! 

 There were also plenty of teas to choose from too! Look at that, and you can mix and match your tea if you like. Not all the teas are displayed, so if you don't find the one you're looking for, just ask! But I don't think you would have any problem in finding something you want to have, you'll probably have trouble choosing 1 to taste! :) 

So after choosing our drinks, we chose our drinks - we went with Mocha (Pablo & Rusty), Hot chocolate (shaved chocolate with hot milk) and a tea (sorry, I can't remember what I ordered), we went upstairs to wait on the cosy sofas while they prepared our orders.

Katze, came up and brought us these! Seriously, so many truffles, delicious! I ate more than I usually would. My favourite truffle has got to be the Caramelised Almond Clusters. It is different to the ones I've eaten before, it has the right amount of caramelisation to it.

How cute is the Robot!

Then she came with more! The chocolate cake...omg! the chocolate ganache in the middle was just so smooth, it wasn't grainy at all! Those little tarts, lemon and pear flavours, was really good, the fragrance from the pear, has the right balance of sweetness.

Then the drinks came....

We finished almost all of these...and it was just the both of us...

Katze Ting, the owner was there to show us around. She shared with us her story on how Four Friends started. The whole experience was just great, Katze's passion to deliver great food, just shows in her food.

Awww the robot chocolate is so cute! Definitely a fine artform to making chocolate - impressive that they don't use artificial oolours or flavours!

Yum, looks delicious! I always seem to indulge in too much Christmas pudding - our family uphold the tradition of coins in the Christmas pudding, and the aim every Christmas since childhood has been simply to get more coins than my sister :-)

Oh my, this looks amazing, was looking for a good tea spot near to work and your blog popped up!

This festive season I'm going to indulge in catching up on my pile of books, fuelled by tea and cake, and aided by turning off internet access!
