I'm a bit of a late starter when it comes to the Sydney International Food Festival events - I hadn't planned anything until last Saturday night! After watching Despicable Me at the movies, it was off to nearby Azuma Kushiyaki for their Sugar Hit.
I initially wanted to book for 9:00pm but they didn't have any more tables available after I tried to confirm the booking, and offered me 9:30pm - the restaurant had quite a few empty tables when I arrived though! I walked past Azuma Patisserie and was tempted by their chiffon cake and tea set, which included a choice of flavours such as earl grey, and options such as green tea latte for the drink. I'll definitely be back for that!
Anyway, back to the Sugar Hit:

And it arrives... how exciting! A bento box filled with all sorts of goodies.
Vanilla pannacotta with strawberry coulis, Belgian chocolate mousse cake with raspberry coulis and freeze dried raspberry pieces - this was heavenly!
Japanese wasabi ganache tart, Almond financier, and premium Japanese green tea tart, Macaron
Drinks - Brown Brothers Orange Muscat & Flora - this was lovely to drink, sweet and fragrant but not too heavy, the green tea was a welcome addition to all the sweetness too.
