The Messy Tomato has officially introduced a delectable dessert selection, and yes, it’s available for takeaway.
Courtesy of new head chef and patisserie guru, Chef Gunawan, the desserts are quintessentially his style—unique, innovative, and inspired by nature.
These sweet treats are disguised as fresh fruits and vegetables—literally.
We all know the old saying “an apple a day keeps the doctor away”, so if you’re going to eat an apple make it this one, filled with apple mouse and apple compote.
Or why not take a chance with the magic mushroom? It’s a black truffle and white chocolate affair, with Frangelico cheesecake.
The other fruits you can pick from include a pear (salted caramel mousse and pear compote), a mandarin (mandarin mousse and mandarin jelly), or the crazy coconut made of coconut mousse, overflowing with coconut sago, and sitting on a bed of passionfruit and oat crumb to make all your tropical dreams come true.
Last but not least, take a look at The Messy Tomato’s namesake. Yes, it looks like an actual tomato, but it’s most definitely a dessert featuring everything tomato.
We’re talking basil and tomato mousse, tomato ganache, tomato cake and basil pistachio crumb—plus a little appearance from strawberry coulis.
All this seem a bit too wild? Then the dessert pots are for you. They’re layer upon layer of deliciousness that you might not be able to finish in one sitting—which is great, because you can pop the top on and take it with you for later.
Take your pick from a cheesecake crumble jar, a dark chocolate jar, a tiramisu jar, coconut jar, salted caramel jar, or raspberry. There are no wrong choices here.
The Messy Tomato have introduced pick up orders (and they’re working on getting delivery going too).
Keeping it super simple, all you have to do is visit their website, choose from their menu—featuring breakfast, lunch, desserts, and coffee—and then pick it up. You can also call and order ahead on 0403 643 452.
While you’re welcome to collect your order inside, anyone taking extra precautions can also whisk their order from the coffee window, or have a staff member bring your items to your car, while you wait in the ten-minute loading zone out front.
They’re making it easy to maintain your regular The Messy Tomato fix and support a local business during a trying time.
You can find The Messy Tomato at 151 Flinders Street, Adelaide.
