It’s delicious, slightly salty with a creamy texture and a definite taste of bacon. It’s made by Brisbane company, Lick ice cream but unfortunately only available as part of the Canadienne Waffle bowl with maple syrup ($15.50, breakfast menu only).
We visited Cowch at 4pm but one of the staff members was kind enough to offer us a sample taste of the bacon ice cream, tempting us to come back for the Champagne Brunch ($25) which includes your choice of the Canadienne Waffle Bowl or Breakfast Churros served with a glass of Primo Secco and a regular coffee.
Considering it was late afternoon, we ordered two Tropicana Quenchers ($9 each) and an iced mocha ($9) along with a Pomegranate Naked Pop dipped in dark chocolate with coconut, pearl and peanut brittle sprinkles ($9.80). The Naked Pops are a cute idea. Your choice of a naked chocolate, vanilla, coffee, mint or pomegranate ice cream, dipped in your choice of white, milk or dark chocolate and three dips in a multitude of different sprinkle options. It’s fun and our version tasted pretty darn good.
Cowch also does gourmet dessert pizzas ($17), mini dessert sliders ($12.5), Fondue ($14), and for those with no sweet tooth, cheese platters from $24 to $38.
Calling itself a dessert and cocktail bar, you’d expect some pretty special dessert cocktails and the menu doesn’t disappoint. Ranging in price from $19 to $21, the Monkey Butter with peanut butter ice cream, vodka, frangelico and agave and the Coco Grande with chocolate yoghurt, rum, espresso and vanilla sound wicked. Plenty of classic cocktails and mocktails are also available including a reasonable range of beers, ciders and wines.
Cowch, it’s fun 🙂
