I was in the Entertainment Quarter in Moore Park, an area generically known as Fox Studios, when I felt like a good snack.
It was just before a big event at the nearby Allianz Stadium, so the area was packed. Every restaurant, food outlet and bar was crowded. I was heading to the same event, and I didnít want to be held up waiting for a meal. I needed something easy, light, fast and tasty.
Found it. Dolcetto Dessert Bar. They do pancakes and crepes, including savoury versions.
The board tells the story
I ordered a Hawaiian crepe that costs $7.50. Knowing I was pressed for time, I decided to check how long it took them to make my crepe and bring it to my table. It came in under seven minutes with which I was impressed.
Insert own pun on the word crepe
The crepe was pretty good; a little light on the pineapple, but plenty of ham and mozzarella.
A good choice of gelato flavours
After my meal, I still had time to indulge in one of their tempting gelatos (or gelati to be grammatically correct). I got a double scoop for $5.80. I chose mango and blood orange. It was delicious and cleansed the palate, although the blood orange had that strange texture as though it may have been old stock. I figure blood orange may not be a popular flavour. Nonetheless it was delicious. Give it a try Ė itís nice and tangy, and overpowered the more subtle mango.
Mmmm nice gelato
They also offer something called spaghetti ice-cream Ė which is strands of vanilla gelato with strawberry sauce. Maybe next time.
The service is efficient without being overly friendly. Thatís fine Ė I was there for a quick meal anyway.
Coffee and cakes available
They also do coffee and cakes. And you can get your parking validated.
There are five tables inside, and six under cover outside.
The Dolcetto Dessert Bar is next to the Dolcetto Bar and Grill.
