Oooh yeah, hell yes. We had walked passed Mister Fitz a few times, and it always looked so tempting, but it was still one of those cases where we just didn’t have enough time, or we had just eaten a massive meal, and we couldn’t eat anymore. But this time, nothing was stopping me! Hehe
Mister Fitz, located in the heart of the food district in Southbank, Brisbane. One of it most disguising features it that it has a Doughnut Time (see Lees review on them HERE) on the premises also. Yeah, I know what you’re thinking, doughnut, ice cream, cookies. That is one hell of a time right there; my delicious treat seriously didn’t disappoint.
As I said before they are in Southbank, right in the food district. They are about a two-minute walk from the central pool area, and even if you can’t immediately find them, I would walk all the streets until you can! I might be, being a little dramatic but just think of the calories that you would’ve burnt off just finding them. hehe
Well, I went for an ice-cream sandwich, well, of course, I went for the most expensive option. It consisted of two soft baked cookies with a substantial amount of creamy ice-cream sandwiched in the middle. My ice-cream was to die for, it was a chocolate Nutella and had lumps of the delicious nutty nectar running through it. Every lick, every mouthful was just as good as the first, and I indeed wasn’t disappointed with my choice.
The lovely lady behind the counter also enlightened me that I could get TWO, different flavoured cookies to surround my ice-cream. I chose the white chocolate and pecan along with the mini m&m’s cookie. Oooooh, they were just as impressive as the ice-cream, soft and chewy but held up against the melting ice-cream with ease. My favourite was the white chocolate and pecan. If I can ever convince Lee to return there, I will have that flavour again.
Value for Money
My ice-cream sandwich was $8AUD, probably about £4.50GBP which would be a complete bargain if we were in England. An average convenient store ice-cream is around $4AUD here, and this is double that, but it was worth the spend. It was clear that they put a lot of thought into the texture, and flavour of every element they produce and I would pay it again.
It was relatively early morning and to be honest, most of the surrounding restaurants were only just opening up, but that just meant we were able to get a seat right outside. The girls behind the counter were friendly and were happy to be featured on our blog. Oh, and I have to mention that the side display cases are the ones that you need to check out, cake galore and an option next time.
