Located in Sydney’s East, Darlinghurst is a brightly coloured, modern and popular restaurant venue called Universal. A wonder woman when it comes to the desserts, Christine Manfield continues to keep desserts as a highlight of her many recipes she has learned and taught over her hospitality career.
At Universal you can expect to impressed by Christine’s menu of textured and tasty flavours of desserts on offer. A must to be tried would be the ginger tapioca cream with star anise-injected pineapple and caramel ice cream which is a mix of flavours that really do not compare from fruity to rich and sweet is the best way to describe it. Expect this dessert dish to be slightly chewy with the texture of the tapioca pearls in a spiced cream, topped off with premium caramel ice cream. Of course, there are also the classic desserts such as Gaytime with the hazelnut chocolate, honeycomb and caramel ice cream taste available for those who love their classics.
Christine’s creativity comes into play when naming her strongly flavoured and immaculately presented desserts. ‘Miss Muffet’ is a mandarin cream and lemon curd arrangement while the ‘Black Beauty’ refers to the dessert for the chocolate lovers with cake, jelly and cumquats all of the chocolate flavour.
Universal is definitely the place to visit if you enjoy your sweets and varied dessert menus. Though, there are still the menus of entrees, main meals, drinks and wine and all in a vibrant atmosphere in a conveniently central location.
