We dare you to take a walk down Milky Lane. You won't regret it, but you have to stay for dessert.
After bursting onto the Bondi scene just over a month ago, Milky Lane has joined illustrious company on Curlewis Street with their unique take on the three course meal. By the way, stay for dessert.
The bustling vibe, layered with Old-School Hip Hop, ambient lighting (add this one to the list for Tinder date venues) and incredibly friendly staff draws you in straight away. Look at the walls for the incredible murals - the best of which is a take on the Last Supper, with Snoop Christ in the centre. But the centre of this establishment is the open kitchen, with Scotty, Pat and the boys working with the passion and love that you can taste in any good burger. And if you think the burger is good, wait for dessert.
We started with the sweet potato chips (served with a finger-lickin coconut aioli), and some hot wings. Then came the burger - we went with the Big Poppa. The delicate slow-pulled beef, smoky patty, glorious cheese, delectable mac n' cheese and a fresh milk bun all comes together for a party in your mouth.
We were absolutely stuffed. "But you have to try the desserts", they say. Over and over. We reluctantly concede.
This is the last thing we could remember from the night - minutes later, we entered a heavenly coma that, a day later, still brings a smile to our (slightly plumper) faces.
The dessert chef, Liam, passionately explained the desserts on offer to us. The Slovakian dessert, Kurtosh, is more affectionately coined the 'Conut' on the Sydney food scene. And there is simply nothing like it - a grilled donut, dusted in cinnamon sugar, moulded into a cone and filled with soft-serve ice cream with various toppings. We had the Apple Crumble special, which is available for the next week or so, as well as the Churros Bowl. You guessed it - a bowl made out of churros, filled with Dulche De Leche sauce and a liquid nutella. Liam tells us that the desserts have been such a hit that some people are paying a visit just for the last course. And we can see why.
Throw in an extremely well-resourced bar, and you have yourself a great night out. We'll be back.
Best Bit: The desserts, and the customer service. The staff here love their job.
Worst Bit: Severely not clean eating. But worth it.
