    I love Thai food and all of that just sounds amazing. Now I am going to convince the hubby that we MUST have Thai tonight or I’ll…um….I don’t know…explode?? implode??

    Eggless sounds like the kinda place I need to be at like RIGHT NOW. Choc-mint cheesecake? Say hello to mah BELLY!

    Fruit…hmmm….I like all fruits but sometimes canteloupe and I don’t get along. There is always way too much of it in my fruit salad and I refuse to eat it on principle.

    How scrumptious do those desserts look!!! And that cafe? Must give it a try when I am next over there!

  3. Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table

    I love all fruit. And now I’m craving ice cream with warm compote. Thanks for that. 😉

  4. Amber Shea @Almost Vegan

    Oh my GOODNESS this place looks like a dream come true! And with Thai food beforehand? Oh how I wish I could’ve joined you!

    You know I’m on the same orange-loathing page as you 🙂

    Oh Thai, delicious Thai, second of all favorite restaurant eat-at options in the land of good eating. You are delicious.

    As a fellow swan, I would have gracefully dove into that beautifully-melting dish of jelly, ice cream and blackberries. As a crow, I would have pecked at the shiny glass containing the orange granita until it accidentally tipped over and into my mouth. Not a problem, as I made my peace with the devil fruit long ago. As in, when I was born. Because it’s delicious.

    I don’t care too much for cantaloupe either. But really, it’s all good to me.

  6. Casey @ Insatiably Healthy

    Wowee that place looks busy for a dessert bar!
    Mangomisu sounds like heaven on earth. I agree on the cantelope and honeydew front – they are basically the fruits getting in the way of all the fruit you *actually* want to eat in a fruit salad.

  7. Catherine

    Yes watermelon. Ugh! Just the thought of it.
    But you’ve soothed me with that Thai.

  8. Lou

    Ha, fruit of the devil you make me laugh – I’m not a huge fan of orange either… um I don’t like persimmon or papaya – they taste like perfume.

    Love Thai, oh yes, good Thai food is so hard to come by, but when you do, it’s like striking gold, hooray!

    Sounds like a cherry old evening was had by all, fun 🙂

    Dear Hannah,

    I might be spoiled by all the fabulous Thai restaurants in Sydney but that pad thai does look quite decent.

    There isn’t a fruit that I hate with an illogical passion.

    However, there is one fruit that I will always love with logical passion and that is the forbidden fruit. It is one fruit that will always taste passionately sweeter than anything else in life.

  10. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    I didn’t know Adelaide stretched to such excitement! I also love that I’m not the only one who researches food (dessert) options in the work-related travel destinations they go to 😛

    On the fruit note? I have no problem with orange, but go to extreme lengths to avoid kiwi fruit. I liked it as a child but these days…ick.

    On the animal note? I’m tied as hawk and swan 🙂

  11. penny aka jeroxie

    I just want the desserts. I HATE DURIAN

  12. Johanna GGG

    I used to hate melon with a passion – now I will occasionally have watermelon but what is the point of canteuloupe? I also don’t understand mango – why do people swoon so when it just reminds me of tetrapaks of orange and mango juice.

    Bad fruit aside, I love the sound of eggless – why isn’t it in Melbourne (but then I probably wouldn’t get to visit it anyway – better to have it so far away that there is no chance) have been quite excited looking at eggless ice cream recipes tonight – yay for eggless desserts!

  13. leaf (the indolent cook)

    The dessert you ordered sounds wonderful! I don’t think I have a fruit I particularly hate… some I don’t like as much, but hate is a strong word. :p

  14. Libby

    This may sound weird but I would normally choose a pad thai over dessert any time (what? is she SERIOUS?!). The desserts at Eggless, however, do look awfully pretty so maybe I’ll make an exception just this one time 🙂

  15. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    Dessert always wins! 😛 And I had no idea that you hated orange that much! 😮 I thought that it was the chocolate and orange combo!

  16. Tammy

    Everything looks so good. The name Eggless is just cracking me up though.

  17. Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake

    I would so loveeee to try some of that mint chocolate cheesecake! I agree that was a VERY small sliver of cake, especially for the 3 of you. I could have eaten that, plus 3 more, on my own!

    I can’t really use HATE for any fruits, although I can say I quite dislike durian. Now for capsicums that’s a different story. I must use a word even stronger than hate to describe that one. 😛 I love oranges! What’s wrong with oranges? Is it the acidity? Then do you like mandarins?

  18. Kath Lockett

    I’d eat them all – the mains next door and all the desserts (I love orange EVERYTHING and eat a fresh one every day).

    LOATHE pawpaw (horrible taste and perfumey smell) and can happily continue to live life without rhubarb spoiling any future crumbles or other desserts that have apple in them. Apple is fine on it’s own I say!

  19. Errign

    Durian. Is that actually a fruit? Whatever it is, it’s pure nasty. Ohhhhh and RAISINS. I don’t usually hate fruits though – I’m much more discriminatory against vegetables – mushrooms, baby corn and bamboo shoots!

  20. Iron Chef Shellie

    ooohhh my god… I need Thai food stat!!! lol love you are a book end 😛

  21. Alayna @ Thyme Bombe

    Mmm, that looks like a very good pad thai. I think you’re dessert selection of the raspberry and mojito jelly sounds the best out of all you got to try. HATE mango. I’ve seen these mangomisu permutations before and always excliam, “Why would you do that to a perfectly good tiramisu!?!?”

  22. Whispering Gums

    A fruit I hate … That would be banana AND any fruit that’s not perfect like mushy watermelon, floury uncrisp apples, soft kiwi.

  23. Eleanor@eatinglikeahorse

    I’m still struggling to get my awestruck head round cafes that just serve pudding; that’s every kind of brilliance, right there!
    I’m not sure about pineapple with caramel, something about that combo seems a bit weird but the jelly/ice cream/compote sounds soooooo good.
    Oh, and according to that quiz, I’m a wolf… close to a seahorse… 😉

  24. Kate

    Oh, I love those lamps! My mom has a thing about lighting- she hates eating at restaurants that are poorly lit- so these would be right up her alley 🙂

  25. Daisy@Nevertoosweet

    I never thought vegan desserts could be so yummy-looking but then and again all desserts are good 🙂 i can’t think of any dessert that i don’t like…hmmm maybe durian flavoured ones hehe

  26. Silvia

    That dessert looks delicious!

    And definitely Litchi.

  27. Kath (My Funny Little Life)

    I’m so sorry I’m not a dessert person! (I hope you like me anyway – you could have mine! :D) I’d have totally accompanied you for yout Thai dinner, though! 😀 One fruit I really, really dislike is banana. It’s about the texture. I’m more reconciled with banana in smoothies, though, because then the texture is gone.

  28. Cindy

    Yay! I’ve been hanging out for your account of this place. I’ll take notes on what to order (a relialbe mint-choc cheesecake) and what to pass over (oh-maybe-I-should-branch-out-actually-that-was-a-mistake pannacotta) if I ever find myself in Adelaide.

    And to answer your question – I hate pawpaw. Ugh, that sweet-rotten stench. That said, I’m a newly converted mango lover so me’n’pawpaw might be BFFs a decade from now.

  29. Heidi - Apples Under My Bed

    I LOVE orange. It’s nature’s candy, Hannah!! So juicy and delicious and man I want an orange. You’re crazy. But I still love you. I can’t think of a fruit I’ve tried that I hate. I anticipate I’d have harsh feelings towards durian, although I’m yet to try it. Aparently it tastes like feet.
    Heidi xo
    ps I’m a swan too, just did the quiz!

    I might be going to Adelaide this year (it’ll either be Adelaide or Europe it seems, hardly a fair exchange…), but it’s nice to know that I won’t go short of dessert! I made something similar to the mangomisu last year- it was fab. But then I’m much more of a mango fan than you are. I’m sitting next to a tray of mangoes as we speak.
