French Lettuce (Fitzroy)

July 7, 2013

French Lettuce offers creamy,sugary delights and  are often heralded the makers of the best vanilla slice enthusiastically by fellow Melbournians and The Age newspaper. After such endorsement, I finally made the trip to acquire my little slice of heaven.

We decided to conquer Melbournes best vanilla slice -the guy behind the counter gleefully plonked two glistening large slices into a small tray for us to take to the nearby Edinborough Gardens.

The lightness of the egg made the filling delicate and the volume meant that after my initial bite my fingers were covered in delicious vanilla slice.

If you have yet to try French Lettuces’ vanilla slice, you’re doing yourself a disservice. I will be returning to devour of their delectable cakes and pastries…
