I have been here quite a few times now yet can you believe that I haven't written a post on it? :O
Anyway, we scouted the menu and chose the Sirloin Steak Sandwich and Crab Bruschetta. They had so many new items and I was particularly excited for the 8 legged creature..
First came the sandwich which was a massive log of house baked olive ciabatta stuffed to the brim with fresh wild rocket, marinated capsicum, warm bread slathered with onion jam and finally a nice juicy slab of grass-fed minute steak. It also came with a special side of herb mascarpone :9.
Every bite was so tasty and juicy, and I was quite surprised at how they managed to cook the steak a nice medium rare considering how thin it was!
And then came my craab! Think thick juicy pieces of crab flesh tossed in a delicious lemon aioli sitting in a heap of smashed avocado and seedy but toasty bread. I loved all of it, it was so creamy yet so refreshing and I suspect there was a little bit of fresh lemon squeezed on that...it had that refreshing zing!
Oh yeah we also got a side of Polenta Chips which were HUGE! Each was roughly the size of a sugar banana! Anyway, these sugar bananas were deep fried mmmm and I think they had flecks of rosemary embeeded in them. Imagine dipping those in a tub of chilli aioli heh.
Last but not least, our dessert.
We played a game where D had to order the desserts and surprise me, so off D went to the desserts counter, coming back about 5min later looking very proud hahaha.
Not long after, came...
The raspberry one certainly passed the test on all accounts, the other one I was a little more hesitant about haha.
For the Raspberry Mille Feuille, just imagine layers of thick vanilla custard and pastry which was crispy yet a little juicy almost like they were slathered with syrup. It was a beautiful balance to the subtle custard!
Now the next dessert was the Pear Almond Slice. This turned out better than expected actually, it was very moist and had a distinct pear flavour running throughout the cake. You know what? It really reminded me of an upside down cake!
