I met up with C a couple of weeks ago for a catch up at Max Brenner just before either of us had finished our degrees for good. I cannot resist things made with passionfruit, so when I saw the Pink Granita, which is a passionfruit and strawberry icy drink, I couldn’t resist. Nevermind that it was a particularly cold and rainy November’s day — I could put a scarf on!
Of course, there was a flaw to the scarf solution for my icy drink on a cold day problem. Scarves only help you retain the heat your body generates, so it doesn’t really help when I’m intentionally countering the heat generated by eating something icy. Anyway, my freezing self aside, the Pink Granita was delicious — it tasted like fresh strawberries with a hint of passionfruit tang.
I was at Max Brenner again late last week with colleagues and this time, I had the Danish Toffee Hot Chocolate, which was a hot chocolate with velvety hints of toffee/caramel. So, a hot chocolate but better.
Max Brenner is located at Gate 2, University Terraces, High St, UNSW Campus, Kensington NSW 2033.
