If you find yourself craving something sweet whilst exploring the alleyways of Fish Lane, we’ve put together the list of must-try desserts to satisfy every kind of sweet tooth.
Fairy Bread Gelato – Gelato Messina
With 40 different flavours of gelato, how can Gelato Messina not take the top spot on this list? Swing by to grab a scoop of apple pie, hokey pokey or macadamia crunch gelato or keep an eye out for their rotating selection of specials. Keep your eyes peeled for their famed fairy bread gelato: toast and butter gelato with crunchy sprinkles. It’s one of literally hundreds and thousands of reasons to give Gelato Messina a go.
Lemon Tart – Ol’ School
A bright blue nest of nostalgia, Ol’ School is a throwback to the diners and takeaway shops of old. As anyone who’s been to one will tell you, it’s actually impossible to leave an old school diner without having dessert. The brûléed lemon curd tart topped with whipped cream is the perfect way to finish a fishy meal while keeping the retro vibes alive.
Chocolate, plum, Early Grey, hibiscus – Gauge
Sometimes, dessert just has to be fancy! Trust top-of-the-lane fave Gauge to take a mouthwatering combo of flavours and put them together in a refreshing, stunning, and delicious dessert of a time. Is the Earl Grey ice cream available in a tub, though?
Snykers Delight – Kiss the Berry
Kiss the Berry is here to prove that not every dessert needs to be a one-way ticket to the emergency room. If you’re looking for a healthier way to satisfy your sweet tooth, call in to Kiss the Berry for an acai bowl. We recommend the Snykers Delight, which blends organic acai, banana, raw cacao powder, peanut butter, almond milk and coconut water topped with homemade granola, banana, coconut yoghurt, strawberries, coconut flakes and raw cacao nibs – health!
Deep Fried Ice Cream – Chu the Phat
For pure decadence, there’s no better stop than Fish Lane’s home of Asian street food, Chu the Phat. Their duck buns and kimchi spring rolls are the stuff of legend, but it’s finally time to talk about their dessert menu. After a divine meal, you’ll be pleasantly surprised to find out that the true main event comes in the form of deep fried ice cream with raspberry chilli caramel.
Sooper Dooper – Grassfed
The proud home of arguably the best vegan burgers in Brisbane, Grassfed backs up its range of magnificent, meat-free munches by adding a vegan twist to other burger joint staples as well. Their vegan shakes are probably worthy of their own entry on this list, but we simply can’t ignore that Sooper Dooper soft serve sundae with fresh fruit, mixed berries, Bask & Co. almond granola and pure maple syrup, served atop dairy-free, coconut soft serve.
We’ll forgive you for skipping the main and going straight for desserts.
