Yellow Bistro

Sorry for lacking of blogging.. just so tired lately from working.. Last month I went to this place "Yellow bistro'' top 5 of patisseries voted by Time Out Sydney Magazine .

Just ''a must shoot'' shot..haha


Skinny Cappuccino and hot chocolate.. My coffee was great. ( I personally like this shape of cup)


My date ^ ^


Croque Madame : pan fried batard, ham, egg, Heidi gruyere, rocket and chilli jam $18.50

We asked the waitstaff for the recommended dish.. ''Croque Madame'' said she. It was sooo good... Taste was a lot better than the picture. Their croque madame is different from others, with the egg hidden inside the bread.


The batard was lightly buttered and pan fried perfectly. About the filling was so tasty, creamy and cheesy (not too much). The saltyness of the ham when mix with the gooey yolk came to perfection. The chilli jam was the kick ! I tell you this dish brought us the moment of happiness.. hahahaha


We shared the main :D


and of course, sweet ! The famous Strawberry and mascapone cake $12.50




We were a bit surprised (and a bit disappointed) when found the coconut was in the sponge (both of us don't like coconut in baked goods) but this cake was still good. The coconut sponge was light, the strawberry coulis was tangy which helped our palete don't sick of the richness of mascapone cheese. Oh yah, the cracking caramelized sugar on top was also one of the great component of this cake.


The beauty of goodies !

My chef said I should try the lemon tart and date tart aswell..He think they are very nice. I will try it next time ( probably take away cuz a lot cheaper than dine in..haha) But actually we were impressed by savoury than dessert this time.
