Max Brenner – Portside, Brisbane

Chocolate, by the Bald Man. Chocolate everything, even pizza. Probably not the place to go if you don’t eat chocolate. Although, should you enjoy partaking in the odd chocolate overindulgence …….

…..Then this is the place to go. Your menu choices are seemingly endless. Pictured above is the Praline Meringue Puff Extravaganza, filled with vanilla ice cream, topped with caramelised pecans and strawberries. Very decadent, highly un-necessary, yet it is a must try for those who enjoy pavlova and chocolate.

I could not follow this through with a chocolate milkshake, choctail or icy shake. Luckily for me, there was a refreshing herbal tea menu available. From this, I chose and enjoyed, the perfect accompaniment to my indulgent dessert.

The tea certainly helped to wash the dessert down. This praline, was as good as it looked. Perhaps lacking a few dollops of cream to finish, otherwise, a most enjoyable, struggle to the finish line, treat.

Hubby’s choice was the I-Scream-Max-Wich. Two OMG double choc cookies, sandwiched together with vanilla ice cream and accompanied by a pot of melted chocolate as well as a pot of sprinkles, allowing you creatively finish your dessert design.

Very rich, as well as being on the top end of the overindulgent scale, this dessert wasn’t finished……although that was not due to the lack of trying on hubby’s behalf!

Plenty of seating within the restaurant, tantalising treats on display, a menu which reads like a novel, finished with a shop area, giving you the opportunity to purchase and take home a little extra decadence. Pretty much all you need for that special occasional treat.

Treat yourself sometime, just go easy on the chocolate overload!
