Bay Vista, Brighton Le Sands
I was lucky enough to have Jelly introduce me to this lovely dessert bar and it has became my favourite dessert spot ever since, and our go to spot for catchups :P!! There are words of wisdom written all over the walls!! I mean, who knew stressed backwards spells dessert???!? Definitely very encouraging whilst I was going through exams :) Hahah love you guys and the the smell of fresh brewing oh so melty chocolate...crispy cooking crepes...perfectly fluffy pancakes..and much muuuuch moreeee! Ahh I salivate just thinking about their copious amounts of delicious goodies!!!!!
So guys, I have below, the numerous desserts I have tried over the course of my never ending adventures at Bay Vista! Enjoy! :)
I've been visiting Bay Vista a lot recently, I have always visited it regularly, but twice in 2 weeks? Definitely a record!
Bay Vista has recently updated their menu items as well as a whole lot of new ice-cream flavours! Apparently there is even lamington flavoured ice-cream now!! Wows. Pretty keenbeans to try that next time!
Peter, the restaurant manager, highly recommended the new Mexican Crepe ($17.00) so we got exactly that!
What came out was one huuuuuuuge slab of soft, perfectly chewy crepe stuffed with chilli beef, beans, guacamole and salsa with a nice side of salad and huge dollop of oober creamy sour cream. I did what I always do, and slathered the sour cream all over the crepe, yummms.
Then we ordered N.Y.S.B Cheesecake Waffles ($16.00) which came out so quickly we hardly had time to grab our cutlery!
The waffles were thick and fluffy and I loved them together with the NY cheesecake and thick strawberry sauce. I would have to say they do the best NY cheesecake imo.
Annnd then came the finale of the night, Bill The Boss's Buenos Aires ($24.00), a magnificent concoction of mango, coconut and passionfruit ice-cream, fresh bananas, fresh strawberries, soft serve ice-cream, whipped cream, caramel sauce and diced roasted hazelnuts served in a huge glass fish bowl :D A good 30cm tall I think! I highly recommend anyone visiting Bay Vista to order one of these kinds of bowls under the 'World Famous Icecream Bowls- Super Special'. They are hands down the best sundaes you will ever have!
The next week, we went back to try moooooar desserts, starting with the 5th Avenue New York ($24.00). Again, a huge bowl filled with massive scoops of peanut butter ice-cream, chocolate ice-cream, boysenberry ice-cream, soft serve ice cream, waffle bites, brownie chunks and chocolate fudge sauce. It was deeliiiish as always and gone in less than five minutes!
Next came the dish I was most excited about, a new menu item called the Super 'Sonia' ($17.00) featuring perfectly cooked crepes stuffed with cinnamon scroll chunks, fresh banana, sultanas and mixed smashed nuts, then topped with loads of cinnamon sugar and super creamy vanilla ice-cream.
Below are a selection of my picks from Bay Vista, I am still trying to figure out how to add posts to previous posts so for now this will do.
Snickes Crepes- Snickers bar pieces, roasted peanuts, chocolate drops, caramel sauce.
Athens 2004- Lychee rose ice-cream, chocolate ice-cream, fig and pistachio ice-cream, soft serve ice-cream, cream, white chocolate sauce, pecans and turkish delight.
OMG I LOVE THIS! This was the first sundae I ever tried here, and I get it almost every single time I come here!
5th Avenue New York- Peanut butter, chocolate and boysenberry ice cream, NY cheesecake pieces, chocolate brownie, real ice cream ‘soft serve’, whipped cream, fountain chocolate fudge and waffle bites.
South Pacific- perfect blend of coconut ice cream, banana slices, whipped cream, chocolate chips, soft serve, chocolate fudge and the waffle cone on top.
N.Y.S.B cheesecake waffles- Thick Belgium waffles topped with fresh strawberries, NY cheesecake, strawberry puree and ice-cream
I absolutely love their NY Cheesecake! The best I have ever tried!
Fountain chocolate waffles- Warm delicious Belgium waffles topped with either strawberries or bananas and a very generous serve of fountain chocolate and vanilla ice-cream
The Secret Cinnamon Scroll. It is pretty much a huge scroll of sweet bread , soft, warm, and its innards filled with cinnamon and a sweet liquid thing slathered on the bread which made it really nice and moist.
Mortal Sin Cheesecake- It consists of chocolate biscuit crumb base, smooth cheesecake layer, dark chocolate mousse and finished off with a layer of rich butterscotch caramel cream. It was surprisingly light tasted even better when dipped into the melted chocolate.
