I am getting into yoga at the moment. Luckily the studio is about 5 minutes walk away, and even more luckily its next to an awesome cake shop called kurtosh!

I fairly regularly walk past, sometimes popping in for a quick browse and sample! Recently with Ellie visiting, we had an excuse to go properly.

Kurtosh is a small chain of several cafes, named after ‘Kurtoskalacs’ – Hungarian pastry based chimney cakes (see here). The pastry is rolled out in a thin ribbon, and wrapped around a wooden cylinder to make the chimney. They’re then baked in a rotating oven, fresh to order in about 10 minutes, and served lovely and warm. They make a whole lot of other delicious looking and very tasty cakes too including cookies and chilled cakes.

There are 7 flavours – some like nutella are added in before the pastry is rolled out, others like cinnamon or nuts go on just before baking.

It was a tough choice, so on our visit we went for a nutella version and the classic cinnamon too. They are $7.50 each, or $8.50 for nutella. Really one between two would have been fine, unless you’re really hungry! On balance I slightly preferred the nutella one. The flavour was yummy with the runny nutella in the middle and it was glazed which was nice, but slightly doughy on the inside. The cinnamon was nice too, with a slightly better texture inside.

Sydney is an awesome place for food and I love that there is more (often better) European food than you get in the UK, which is much closer to Europe.  

Anyone eaten or made anythign super tasty recently?
