The food hunt made us land at a new bakery situated in the suburb of Issacs. A bit out of the way, but we promise you that this bakery is a destination you don’t want to miss.

If you live in Canberra, this place must be on your next go-to list. We bet; you won’t regret.


What’s All the Hype About?

A couple runs the Supersweet bakery, and you definitely feel the warm and cozy vibes. They specialise in pastries and mille crepe cakes. Founder and pastry chef, Chris, vouches for their danishes and watermelon cake. Talking about watermelon cake than its definitely the star of the show. You can feel the enhanced taste of watermelons, strawberries, and rose. However, you only get to have this on weekends.


You know the hype is real when you see them using Kingswood coffee beans for serving coffee, and oh boy, it tastes so good and genuine. Lastly, let’s not forget to mention the presentation. Do you know what we were sold on? The fact that most of the pastries and bakery items were bite-sized, and they were very convenient to eat. That way, you get to try different varieties and explore more tastes.


What We Tried, And Loved?

When we entered, we knew the first thing we wanted to try was their danishes. The range in flavours was huge. The choice was difficult to make, but we somehow managed to order most of the flavours.


The freshest Danishes

Talking about the tiramisu danish, then it was crispy outside. From inside, it was soft and buttery. The topping on the tiramisu surely enhanced the taste, with the nice touch of coffee powder sprinkled. Same were the fruit danish and the mango danish that we tried. Both of them were filled with fruits, butter, and tasted delightful.



Watermelon Cake

We were lucky to visit the place on the weekend as we got our hands on the very famous dessert of the bakery “watermelon cake”. It was definitely something unique, flavourful, and heavenly. The whole slice was gone within seconds and rightfully so.


Matcha Range

From their mille crepe cakes we tested the matcha crepes. Honestly, we were surprised by the 40 layers of the crepes together; something we have not seen before. It was rich, and most importantly flavoured like authentic matcha. We ordered the matcha latte. But what really caught our eye and impressed us was the matcha soda that was something new for us.




In Nutshell

Our Capital Food Adventures takes us to places we never thought we would ever be, and that would have been a great miss. Such a golden find was Supersweet Pastry. It has now become undoubtedly our favourite place for baked desserts.

Visit this place to give your taste buds a treat.

Situated in Dickson, Wukong Hot pot is one of the first authentic Chinese Chong Qing hot pot places in Canberra. This fact alone makes this place so appealing and worth trying. As you all know, we are always on the go and trying out different things. Hence, this time we ended up at this exciting new place, and we were surprised by what it has to offer.


Before we dig right into the menu and what we liked the most, we found one thing really attractive. And that was definitely the digital tablets as a replacement of card menus. It shows that everyone around including the restaurants and cafes industry is also stepping up their game with technological advancements.


A Word by Sean, The Owner

As we interviewed Sean, he revealed that he went to China to bring the authentic taste and the legit hot pot to Canberra. In an inclusive talk, he also mentioned that he studied in China for several months before bringing back the real flavour of hot pot.

Upon asking his recommendation, he suggested us his top three food items from the menu. Black beef tripe was topping the list, followed by the 1-meter board of beef and lamb, and lastly the crispy pork.


What Did We Order?

We basically ended up ordering almost everything, because we were really excited about the opening of a hot pot place in our town. Starting with the hot pot soup, it came in a customised pot with three sections. Each section contained different soups. What we ordered comprised of Chong Qing style broth, traditional hot and spicy broth, and vegetable style broth. All of them tasted different from one another but equally flavoursome.

We had our different sauces that enhanced the taste of every item that we dipped in the hot pot. The northern style and the southern style were the two sauces we had, and both were finger-licking.

The main items that we dipped in the soups were wagyu beef, crispy pork, quail eggs, prawn meatballs, and fried tofu skin. Each and everything was appetizing and luscious.

Speaking brief of crispy pork, you can enjoy these hot shots on their own or else with the broths. It depends on whether you prefer them crispy or soaked.



A Little Challenge by Cindy

Well, by the end of our tasting and eating session, we played a little game. We were surprised to see the variety that Wukong offers. For instance, we had duck giblets and duck intestines. The giblets had a rubbery mouthfeel if that’s something you prefer then make sure to add that in your order.


In Nutshell

Overall, it was a tasty and rich trip down to Wukong hot pot. Now we finally know where friends and family can have a great gathering because you know the food can be trusted up.

We are looking forward to more hot pot places in Canberra. For now, we know which place to head to.

As you all know, we are always up for a food adventure, and this time we ended up at a fun and quirky place. By fun and quirky, we don't only mean the ambiance and the whole setup of the place; we also mean really cool food that was served. And yes, not to forget the drinks as well.

We won't prolong the curiosity, so let's just break it to you guys that we visited Super Emoji, Canberra, and we are sold on their splendid fruit and bubble teas.


Let’s be honest, how many times you have tried bubble tea and left feeling disappointed? Many, right? We have been on that boat too! Until our visit here!


What Makes Super Emoji Unique?

Before we talk about anything else, let's give Super emoji the due credit for coming up with such an eccentric idea of infusing emotions into what they serve. The whole surrounding of the café is so fun-loving and lively that one can surely feel like they have entered into a different animated world. Even the menu cards are of such fun and vibrant colours that they make you feel hyped excited well before you are gulping down Australia’s best bubble tea.

Another fantastic thing about this little place is that they keep on adding seasonal items to their menu. So you can always have a new item on the menu to order for yourself.


What Super Emoji Offers?

Apart from serving the best bubble tea, they offer a wide range of drinks and desserts.

Their desserts are beautifully decorated and need to be snapped up by your phone before you take a bite. From their smaller cream puffs, and scrumptious soufflés, you can feel the enriching taste of various fruits in every bite.


Then, there is another menu for the drinks. Oh my gosh, the range is huge. You surely have to take the time to decide what to order. Every option in the menu is as mouth-watering leading one to create a ‘what to try next time list’. The drink menu comprises of different types of teas: jelly, traditional, milk, and fruit teas. Also, they serve yogurt slushes too, again something to look forwards to and taste, of course.


What We Tried!

We couldn't try everything, but we still managed to have a taste of almost all of the things on the menu. It would require frequent visits to taste everything, after all.


We tried their Asam milk tea, and it was the perfect blend of tea with other flavours. Next, we had Tim-Tam bomb tea, which was surely living up to its name, full taste bombardments. We also experienced White peach and lychee green tea slush, and it was a treat to taste buds.


Coming to desserts, we had mango pomelo soufflé; it was fluffy, soft, light, and delicious. We also had the pleasure to taste Super Emoji's Oreo mocha éclair. It had a right crisp outside and had buttery filling inside.

Conclusion

We would strongly recommend putting Super Emoji on your list of places to visit, and yes, it is Instagram worthy too!


Come here to experience the delicious teas and desserts with the extraordinary interior for yourself. You will love it.
