Tokyo Lamington’s new range celebrates native flavours

Sydney’s Tokyo Lamington has teamed up with Melbourne Bushfood to celebrate Australia’s best native ingredients (such as pepperberry, strawberry gum and wattle seed) and flavours. For two weeks only, launching on January 20 the range will be available in store and online.

All ingredients sourced by Melbourne Bushfood are from Indigenous communities, wild harvesters and small Australian farmers and are known for being very distinct in flavour.

The menu includes OG native jam (Cape York lilly pilly jam and vanilla cream dipped in dark chocolate sauce and coconut); chai and pepperberry (date and chai jam, vanilla cream dipped in white chocolate, coconut and pepperberry) and strawberry gum and cream (vanilla cream and strawberry gum dipped in vanilla sauce and coconut). Finger lime meringue, lemon myrtle lime bitters, honey and macadamia, pepper leaf and vanilla, Davidson plum and chocolate and black sesame and wattle seed are also on offer.

Here’s how Tokyo Lamington describe some of the offerings:

Davidson Plum and Chocolate

A classic combination, the combination of tanginess of Davidson Plum and richness of Chocolate Mousse makes this Lamington very moreish.

Lime and Finger Lime

Hours of scrapping little caviars off Finger Lime is totally worth the sharp and tanginess it brings to this sweet pillowy Lamington.

Black Sesame and Wattleseed
