Take 2 @ Chong Co Thai

A few weeks ago, I went to a birthday dinner at Chong Co Thai along the Kingston Foreshore.

Dessert @ Morks

The last few times I’ve been to Morks, I’ve never had the opportunity to try out the desserts. I was determined to try it out last Friday night. There were 2 desserts available that night – the sweet egg in hay and Grandma’s Garden. My partner and I chose both to share. The sweet egg […] Read more…
