Like every other 15 year old girl I know during high school, I spent a lot of time eating frozen yoghurt at Strathfield. Hence, it breaks my heart to see that the first froyo joint I had visited, has in fact closed down and been replaced by a Buttermelt Cafe. After recovering from the painful loss, I saw photos of pancakes from Buttermelt floating around… and you know how it goes.
Green Tea Smash ($6.50)
The Green Tea Smash was a sweeter blend of matcha than the authentic bitter aftertaste but still very enjoyable and refreshing.
Buttermelt Pancakes ($15.50)
By the time I was in year 12, a giant Pancakes at the Rocks was set up 5 minutes away from my school. You could imagine where I spent most of my free periods, or “study periods” as my librarian would correct me. I even held my 17th birthday there because heck, we were lazy and just wanted food. After that, it’s safe to say that I’ve been put off pancakes.
This is when Buttermelt comes in. Pancakes should be like a girl’s makeup, as soon as it feels cakey, get out of there. The pancakes at Buttermelt were fluffy and warm without the cakey feeling. The topping combination of classic mixed berries kept things interesting with their sweet tarty qualities. Yummeh!
