Cocina Bandito - 26 Mar 2015

Cocina Bandito - The Full Castro

The menu offers a small selection of dishes but you can get a cut down version all three mains for just $20 with corn chips, salsa, and guacamole. I really liked the variety and taste all three dishes offered. The toasted bread roll with mustard, Monterey Jack cheese and tender beef brisket is comfort food. The lettuce cups with spiced rice and salsa offers up refreshing flavours. The tender pork belly with black rice and black eyed peas was excellent too, especially with the orange and star anise sauce. I also got some dessert, the infinity donuts, which were a bit firm but tasty in the Havana club syrup. . . . → Read More: Cocina Bandito – 26 Mar 2015

Shiro Izakaya - 20 Mar 2015

Shiro - Chicken Katsu Set with Tempura

Since I first visited, Shiro have revamped the lunch set to offer a bit less for a cheaper price. The prior lunch set used to be like a mini three course meal which left you stuffed. I think these lunch time sets are more accessible and suited to people’s appetites and budgets. For the price, they’re great value, offer variety, choice, and quality. I really liked the delicious katsu sauce which significantly livened up the plain steamed rice. Along with the crunchy crumbed succulent chicken, the light crispy batter of the tempura, the soothing miso soup, and the refreshing garden salad and dressing, it made for a delicious meal. . . . → Read More: Shiro Izakaya – 20 Mar 2015

The Generous Squire - 19 Mar 2015

The Generous Squire - Lamb Ribs with Chipotle Barbecue Sauce

I did use the Entertainment Book to get a discount but for 3 dishes at a full price of $46, or $23 each, it’s pretty good value considering we got variety and some tasty food. I really liked the vegetable tart which had a lovely well balanced filling between the pumpkin and blue cheese. The slow cooked beef brisket was tender within the sliders though needed a bit of a boost in flavour and the tomato sauce helped moisten things up. The onion rings contained a lovely crunchy crisp light batter and were delicious. The lamb ribs were very tender and tasty and didn’t require the chipotle barbecue sauce. Lovely all round meal. . . . → Read More: The Generous Squire – 19 Mar 2015

Sushia Izakaya & Bar - 22 Feb 2015

Sushia Izakaya & Bar - Dessert Platter

Sushi offers high quality Japanese fine dining in a lovely setting with excellent service. I really enjoyed the quality and flavour of the food, but felt that the serving size was not commensurate with the price for several dishes. With the Dimmi $50 voucher, it made the dinner closer to value for money. We started off with the chef’s selection of sashimi which is really delicious with a dab of wasabi and soy sauce to kick the night off. I also enjoyed the assorted tempura but prefer a thicker crunchier batter but the juicy prawns were perfectly cooked and full of flavour. The melt in your mouth light golden brown coloured crab balls mixed in that interesting sauce was also delicious. I also particularly liked the flavour of the grill that was imparted into the succulent duck breast with a flavoursome sauce. We also tried the chicken, prawn and Jamon, and beef tongue skewers which were really delicious with the accompanying sauces. And finally, we had the nigiri sushi to round out the mains. For dessert, the dessert platter offers just about every dessert on the menu in a smaller serve which allows you to try each one. They’re all really delicious with the highlight being Sushia’s signature dish, the tofu cheesecake. The mango sorbet, chocolate cubes, and chocolate fondant also rate a special mention. Delicious. . . . → Read More: Sushia Izakaya & Bar – 22 Feb 2015

The Laneway Lounge - 19 Feb 2015

The Laneway Lounge - Prawn Popcorn with Chilli Mayo

This classy 1940’s New Orleans venue offers patrons a seat at the bar, the high tables, private booths, and also has a live music room for local and international performances, particularly of a jazz or blues variety. Whiskey is on the drinks menu along with all kinds of beverages, and in keeping with the full table service available, the tapas menu offers something more than just the average bar food. I particularly enjoyed the golden brown popcorn prawn which was rich but had the edge taken off by the spicy chilli mayo. I also really enjoyed the chunks of pork belly surrounded by a light deep fried dough and coated ever so slightly with a maple syrup and bourbon glaze. These donuts were really something. While the desserts are quite pricey, I did have the amaretti & caramel custard tart which has the most delicious sensation! The palette cleansing banana gelato is very tasty but the rest of the dessert has elements which don’t quite gel well. I was pretty full and really liked the feel of the venue and the delicious food. A great place to stop by for any occasion, especially pre-theatre. . . . → Read More: The Laneway Lounge – 19 Feb 2015

Bambamboo - 18 Feb 2015

Bam Bam Boo - Char Siew Bao and Panfried Pork Bun

If you really can’t be bothered walking 5 minutes to Northbridge and picking any number of yum cha restaurants on Roe St and beyond, then pop into Bambamboo for yum cha instead. The ordering process is convoluted and you need to know what dishes and how much you will order upfront, but apart from that, the food is pretty tasty and comparable to what you would get at a yum cha restaurant. I’d still favour going to a yum cha restaurant for the authentic deal and you can also keep ordering till you’re full, but Bambamboo is a solid alternative. I really loved the pork belly and enjoyed the BBQ pork buns, panfried pork buns with heaps of chilli oil, and the pumpkin sago pudding for dessert. Takeaway also available. . . . → Read More: Bambamboo – 18 Feb 2015

Brotzeit German Bier Bar & Restaurant - 11 Feb 2015

Brotzeit - Bavarian Sausages, Pretzle, Sweet Mustard

I was back again for another visit to the German restaurant, Brotzeit. On today’s visit I had their traditional Bavarian sausages, weisswurst, which came with a freshly made pretzel and sweet mustard. The herb specked smooth sausages were really delicious, taking on a subtle flavour, but really tasty. I liked the pretzel, especially the salty bits, with the sweet mustard which helped to take the meaty edge off the meal. Also aiding the cause is a side of buttered spatzle (like a German pasta) which was pretty tasty but needed a dash of seasoning. This is another really filling meal which resulted in me eating a very light dinner. . . . → Read More: Brotzeit German Bier Bar & Restaurant – 11 Feb 2015
