We went to this little pastry shop tucked away from the hustle and bustle of King St in Newtown after being intrigued by this article (yes, we came here a looong time ago). The owner, Christopher The, was also a former pastry chef at Claude's - all the more reason to check this place out!

We bought a ginger ninja too but I forgot to take a photo of it since we were too busy dissecting the ninja heh.

The chocolate and caramel tart had an awesomely gooey caramel layer sandwiched in between the chocolate cookie crust and the chocolate ganache. It was a sweetness overkill but oh so good! The sprinkle of salt in the middle helped to cut back (a bit of) the sweetness and accentuated the bittersweet flavour of the chocolate. This tart was my favourite along with the strawberry, rose, watermelon cake :)
