After a slightly disappointing New York Cheeseburger on my last visit, East Village redeemed themselves with a fabulous Reuben sandwich. I’ve not eaten a Reuben before but after the first bite I was sold. What a delicious sandwich! The toasted bread felt soothing in winter as it warmed my hands. The tender chunks of corned beef oozed flavour. The acidity from the pickles and saukraukt cut through the meatiness of the pork while the Swiss cheese rounds out the sandwich with it’s unique flavour. The Russian dressing is an important component in keeping the sandwich moist and it does the job tieing all ingredients together. I was really hungry and it is a mission to get through but I succeeded and enjoyed every bite. They also include a salad so I ate that too. It’s not necessary in my opinion as the sandwich is well packed and has some salad in the sandwich, however, the salad is a nice end to the meal. Unfortunately, way too full to even consider dessert. . . . → Read More: East Village – 17 Jul 2015
More and more American styled restaurants are opening up and East Village is the latest addition to that offering, located at 140 William Street. The interior offers a casual relaxed atmosphere gushing with activity and catchy music. While newly opened and very busy on a Friday lunchtime, the wait for a table was quick and service was prompt and efficient, including the kitchen. I ordered the New York Cheeseburger which exuded a delicious flame grilled flavour from the meaty beef patty. I liked the gooey cheese and mustard mayo, along with the typically American pickles, and the tasty bun. The burger was lacking seasoning and oomph which was a little disappointing and the chips were above average at best. I’d favour a visit to a gourmet burger joint instead. I also had room for dessert so ordered the key lime tart which had a lovely thick, heavy, rich curd with ample lime flavour surrounded by a tasty pastry. To take the edge off, the vanilla flecked ice cream was a welcome addition. Pretty good dessert but it needs to be lighter. I’d like to visit again to try some other typically American dishes and see how they are. . . . → Read More: East Village – 10 Jul 2015

Another visit to Shiro to try one of their lunch sets and they don’t disappoint. I like the variety, quality, taste, and presentation. It’s excellent value for money and will leave you comfortably full. On today’s outing I enjoyed the pork belly set which served lots of tender pork belly immersed in a delicious sauce which made the rice so delicious. I like the variety of the set with a delicious warming miso soup, fresh salad with a delicious dressing to liven up the greens, and today I went for the sushi which had soft shell crab which was tasty. . . . → Read More: Shiro Izakaya – 24 Apr 2015
I headed especially to The Trustee to try their dessert degustation. Before I started, I ordered the pork belly parcels which served up tender pork belly oozing the unmistakeable flavour that only pork belly can offer, surrounded by crunchy pastry and a blob of cranberry sauce. This was well paired with a delicious apple and red cabbage salad. Then it was on to the dessert degustation consisting of 5 courses. I loved the wattleseed and caramel ice cream, not so much the quince with pear tart. The lychee granita was so refreshing and enjoyed thoroughly with the rosewater panna cotta. The snickers bar was absolutely amazing along with the vanilla ice cream wafer. Lastly, the spearmint macaron and spearmint vanilla flavoured milkshake was an excellent finish to the meal. I love the dessert degustation which offers lots of variety, quality, execution, and taste. Five courses for $24 is well worth it, mind you, after the fourth course I was done. Plenty to keep you happy. . . . → Read More: The Trustee & Dessert Degustation – 15 Apr 2015
