Green Tea and Azuki Ice-Cream - Chocolate Buddha

Dropped by for a cool drink on a hot Summer day. I was surprised to find the drinks menu rather short compared to SoulMama. The only cool drinks available were iced coffee and iced chocolate. Kenzan at GPO has Iced Oolong Tea on tap!

 

Both Soul Mama and Chocolate Buddha were owned by Paul Mathis, but he's since sold the latter.

 

Still, the iced coffee was rather good, and so were the ice creams, if a little expensive. AUD3 for a ping pong ball sized scoop of ice cream and AUD6 for an iced coffee. I guess it has to do with the location perched at the top of Federation Square.

- Outdoor diners who doused their sushi platter with liberal splashes of soy sauce and then proceeded to sprinkle Shichimi (7-spices chilli powder) over the lot. At least they didn't have a sushi chef yelling at them for doing so! :P
