12-Micron, Sydney

If you’re looking for a place where you can do drinks, dinner and dessert, then look no further than 12-Micron in Barangaroo. We’re here for the dessert bar, having heard about the dessert tasting menus. There’s options of 3, 5 or 7 courses, but we decide to order a la carte among 6 of us for more variety, and also so we can say, “One of everything, please!” The desserts arrive, colourful and artfully plated, making for an impressive spread. There’s some interesting ingredients as well, like native Australian rosella, quandong and finger lime. Each element on each plate is beautiful and packed with flavour, but sometimes the components seemed to be fighting for the spotlight rather than working well together. My surprise favourite was actually the Pyengana cheddar dessert as it had a nice balance of sweet and savoury. It was an interesting meal, but none of the dishes were a stand-out for me, so I probably wouldn’t be rushing back any time soon!

TL;DR: Fine dining desserts with unique flavours
Favourite dish: Pyengana cheddar, milk chocolate, plum, honeycomb
Would I return?: Probably not
