Once settled nicely into my comfiest Pyjamas, what do sluggards like me do when our desire to plonk on the couch contends with a late-night sugar craving? The solution comes courtesy of a classic case of flipped logic: if you can’t go to dessert, make dessert come to you…
And that’s exactly where delivery superhero foodora comes in. Their fleet of couriers-for-hire are constantly racing across the city delivering some of Brisbane’s best restaurant fare, so why not make it worth your while; everyone knows that dessert is the best part of a meal. Not since Nero’s Rome has human accomplishment struck upon such languid extravagance.
Here are our top picks of the best desserts in Brisbane delivered straight to your door:
Once again foodora saves us from the social shame of an after-hours drive-thru. Tubs of Nominom’s bangin’ fro-yo are up for delivery, as well as their crispy Belgian waffles. This is adulting at its finest, right here.
With an opening act as spectacular as the burgers at Chur, their dessert items are out with something to prove. Something magnificent. Chur Burger’s sweet deliverables consist of a banoffee pie with salted caramel popcorn and a chocolate brownie ice cream sandwich—wow. Don’t risk the fomo, get both.
Too often have I found myself desperately racing home trying to outrun my tub of gelato’s ability to become liquid. Leave it to a professional with an Esky to safely deliver your gelato with minimal damage and ask foodora to hit up the lads at La Macellaria. Known for making some of Brisbane’s best gelato, you can now get a 500ml, 750ml or 1L tub of your favourite flavours delivered right into your waiting arms. Save on the washing up and throw in a bag of cones.
The extraordinary Harajuku Gyoza has everything you need for a mellow night in: get comfortable with dessert gyoza, supplement your viewing pleasure with a Nutella dumpling (OMG!), or split salted caramel gyoza with someone special ie. you. You are someone special.Miss Claude’s French Crêpes
Let us start by reiterating a universal fact: crêpes taste better the later at night you have them. Yes they make a delicious breakfast, lunch or snack, but something about the starry canopy hanging o’erhead really brings out the crêpetastic flavours. Check out Miss Claude’s favourite sweet crêpes, or design your own fabulous confection, they’ll make them fresh and Foodora will bring them to your couch.
And the Francophilic pleasures continue at perhaps the most underestimated dining asset in the game. French Martini’s travelworthy desserts are classic indulgences that don’t skimp on the pleasurable intensity. Cherry clafoutis? Chocolate marquise? Bread and butter pudding, drenched in caramel and crème? It’s all you never knew you’d always dreamed of and it can be en route to your welcome mat in seconds.
If you feel like stepping out of your dessert comfort zone, then Papparich is the place you're after. With a menu of exotic deliciousness, you're in for a real treat. Sago pudding and Tau Foo Fa "King" might not ring any bells but they sure are deliicous.
