Grilled whole baby snapper with Zucchini and green beans, $30.
The ‘baby’ snapper was definitely not baby sized at all, I’m super happy that it was fairly big and did a good job at filling me up. It was grilled but the skin was still really soft, I would’ve preferred it to be crispier but still very satisfied with it.
The inside was cooked perfectly but eating it was so annoying and tedious! There were too many tiny bones and scales weren’t removed off the skin properly. I should’ve thought of this before I ordered it because I spent a solid hour or so trying to eat this without choking on any bones. I did enjoy this overall, but I’ll definitely reconsider my choices in food when I’m famished coz I was way too hungry to have any time to carefully pick through fish bones and scales. The fish was accompanied by lemon olive oil, it would’ve been good if they had some sort of dipping sauce with this as it lacked in flavor. Fish was fairly fresh, didn’t taste like old frozen stuff at all.
Deep fried vegetable dumplings, $12.50.
Since when did I enjoy eating things that didn’t contain meat. Initially we were going with the kefta lamb as an entree but then we decided to get this and I was just like whatever. Surprisingly I loved this as it reminded me of falafels. The outside was really really crunchy but not so hard that it would break your teeth. Inside it was filled with assorted blended greens and spinach. This was served with a yoghurt dip which was so so good, if they had given me more, it would’ve gone really well with the fish too.
Fish of the day: barramundi wth zucchini and eggplant, $32.50.
This was really good, a little on the small side but there was no need to sift through all the meat trying to look out for bones.
Chocolate bougasta, $12.50.
A WHAT? i had no clue what bougasta was, but ordered it anyway. It’s chocolate and custard filled in filo pastry with a side of cherry jam and whipped cream.
This is so filling, I was pretty full at the end of my main and the dessert just tipped me over the edge. The custard is so thick yet light and smooth and it’s mixed with chocolate all wrapped around thin tasty pastry. It wasn’t overly sweet or creamy, just the perfect amount of chocolate and custard blended together wrapped in a delcious blanket of pastry.
Greek walnut cake, $12.50.
The cake had a perfect texture, it was very firm and dense but not hard and dry. The base was soaked in orange syrup and was very fragrant, a little on the sweet side but nothing that would put you in a sugar coma. I absolutely loved the texture of the cake! It was one of those perfectly dense and moist cakes topped with crunchy walnuts.
Restaurants really need to stop being tight arses and serving tiny pieces of cake, I’m paying $12+, you could at least give me a slice of cake that doesn’t disappear within two bites!
The staff here are so oblivious, we went in on a quiet night where there was an abundant number of staff on the floor, but none of them managed to notice or acknowledge us. I’m very understanding when it’s busy and staff just can’t get to me straight away, but it is a little irritating when I have to wave my arms like a madwoman trying to get their attention.
At least they were more efficient at providing menus and taking our orders once we were seated. Luckily i had great company because food comes out very slowly so you’ll spend quite a while waiting and chatting before you actually get to eat anything. Everything here is just slow but the food is well worth the wait.
