It’s that time of year again, Sugar Hit is back!
Azuma Kushiyaki’s Sugar Hit offering has always proved to be one of the most popular options for sweet lovers during the Crave Sydney International Food Festival. This year Azuma has pushed the boundaries by introducing bold Japanese flavours such as yuzu, shochu, kinako and white sesame. It’s a great excuse for those unfamiliar with Japanese flavours to be a bit more adventurous with their palate. Created and designed by Head Patissier Chef Miya Matsumara, the dessert bento boxes come with a glass of Browns Brothers dessert wine or hot green tea.
The top tray contains a matcha tiramisu with velvety mascarpone, fresh cream and shochu soaked sponge fingers; a small sample of nigori or yuzu sake; sake soaked sponge bites and a handcrafted chocolate praline with a pop rock centre.
The bottom tray offers a scoop of white sesame ice cream and an anmitsu fruit salad dressed in a brown sugar syrup and topped rice dumplings (the dumplings are rolled in kinako powder, made from lovingly roasted soy beans).
Azuma Kushiyaki’s Sugar Hit is priced at $20 per person and is available from 9-11pm from Monday to Saturdays during the month of October.
