At my house, we often like to put on masterchef at dinnertime. Its always fun for us to watch and one past contestant that i always am excited to see is Reynold Poer! When he was on the show, they gave him the nickname ‘The Dessert King”, because he was so creative and did amazing desserts. Since finishing the show, he started up his own dessert store and works together with his brothers! Ever since i heard that, i always wanted to go, but its in Sydney and I live in Melbourne, so i didnt really get a chance to. But this weekend, i came up to Sydney because there was a Final Fantasy concert this weekend and i LOVE the music from Final Fantasy! And the japanese composer Nobuo Uematsu, who composed many of the songs i love would be in attendance (so i HAD to go!! :D). And since i was up here… i was thinking what else did i really want to do in Sydney? And the ONLY other thing that I really wanted to do was ‘go to Koi!’.
I was so excited! So i arrived in sydney this afternoon and after dinner, our Sydney friends took us to Koi! 🙂 as soon as we saw the restaurant, i got super excited 🙂
And really, all i wanted to do here was try one of his desserts and eat here! But then my sister was like, omg Reynolds is here!!
Then i got even more excited haha! After that, i was buzzing and not really thinking clearly lol! Its a very exciting feeling seeing someone you like from tv in person! Its a bit surreal!
I took some photos of the cakes!
They looked amazing! I picked out three that i could share with Lisa and Jeff and then when i got to the counter, i asked the lovely girl if i could get a quick photo with Reynold! She asked him and he said yes! It was so nice of him to do that, because i could tell he was busy making lots of desserts! But i knew i had to ask at least. And thn one of the staff took the photo for me.
Day made 😀
Oh yeah, i also blurted out ‘i love watching you on the show!’.
And then i took the cakes and we went and ate them! To be honest i was just so happy to briefly meet Reynolds and get a photo with him, the rest was a bit of a blur. I do remember the desserts we delicious, interesting and just beautiful to look at! Totally worth the trip!
That white one in particular, its like a work of art! 🙂 inside it, its yellow! Like a poached egg. Such a nice surprise when you cut into it 🙂 as they would say on masterchef, its the drama!
I had the best time coming to Koi! I cant wait to go again and try different things! 🙂
And thanks to Reynold for taking the time to stop and take a photo with a crazy fan 🙂
Koi Dessert Bar is at 46 Kensington Street, Chippendale, Sydney!
