Zumbo Dessert Train – At The Star


I love the idea of a dessert train , sit down and see what comes around and when you find something you like take it.  I was there on Saturday night , the take away section had a line out the door but surprisingly the train was almost empty.  Seated straight away and given a small menu/list and a glass of water.  The design of the place it feels fun if that makes scene, bright colours , macaroons painted the walls and cartoon like gear wheels  in the middle of the train.  The staff are very friendly and passionate when taking about the dishes.

As I sat down, I noticed some figurines coming  along with signs like ‘bring it on’ , ‘feed me’ and ‘grandmas soap’ which was a nice fun touch and you can see it invokes a reaction from others as it passed in front of them. It worked like a typical sushi train with dishes on coloured plates which corresponded to their price, $8.50 , $9.50 and $10.50. The portion sizes were quite large so most people would be full after one or two (I had one and a half).

The only bad thing was that there was not much variety coming around on the train.  As I said at the start I love concept and will come back again for sure. Its also open till midnight on Fridays and weekends so it makes for a great post dinner or night time indulgence.

    The dessert train seems to be getting a few mixed reviews lately. I think its something I’ll check out once it picks up a bit. I get this feeling that there must be more plans on the way for the dessert train and its variety. Although I still think its a great idea and a fun novelty!
    And you know the food will be excellent quality!

    Cute little catbus! I’ve been wanting to check out this place for a while but have been waiting for the hype to die down a little. The train idea is pretty fantastic though – will have to stop by soon because I’m really diggin’ that coffee brulee.
