Passionflower has finally opened in Melbourne last Friday. My friend told me that it was nice and lots of people were queuing for them on the opening day. Since it was so famous, I decided to give it a try with my bro today.

Black Pearl

Black sesame ice cream is the main reason I went there for because it's really really hard to get such a flavour of ice cream here in Melbourne. Their Black Pearl ice cream is served with black sesame glutinous balls and crushed peanuts.

I really like the glutinous balls and peanuts but the black sesame ice cream is rather disappointing. I think it could be better if it has a stronger sesame flavour rather than just tasting sweet.

Cookie Me Up

My brother ordered the Cookie Me Up ice cream and it has chunks of triple chocolate fudge, cookies topped with warm chocolate sauce and whipped cream.

Well, I'm sure that all of you guys know how cookies and cream ice cream taste like and for this one it just taste vanilla that without cookies taste I reckon. Cookies and cream ice cream should have chunks of cookies in it that you can bite or chew on, but this didn't really have that punch. For something that price, I would've expected more.

The funny thing is both of the ice cream that we ordered, only the toppings that comes together with ice cream are nicer. The ice cream itself are just ok and I don't think it caught my taste buds for a second round, maybe for their waffles or fondue but not the ice cream. Maybe I'll be considering whether are there any better flavours other than the ones we had today.

  1. It's strange but when I saw the Black Sesame ice-cream, I suddenly find myself craving for Honey Dew ice-cream.

  2. Oh!! I really really love black sesame ice cream so guess who's making a bee line for this place?

  3. @Celeste Go give it a try! and come tell me what you think about it after you're done. =)
