Happy tasty new year…

by Heather C on January 4, 2015 in Food & Drink

We’ve been silent a while haven’t we.  Here’s a few tasty (and generally healthier) morsels and a tipple I’ve tripped over through New Years:

  • Plum bircher muesliPlum café’s bircher muesli – oats, almond milk, greek yoghurt, fresh mango and toasted coconut. Pleasing density and flavour.
  • Ombra’s mushroom parmesan and rocket ciabatta breakfast (8am-12noon).  Such a better time of day to enjoy Ombra and if you really want to push the boat out, their croissants come with alternative dulce de leche fillings, mmmmmm.
  • HBIB’s orange infused ginger beer on tap at the Hop Garden.  Hugely refreshing, as well as tasty.
  • The jalapeno shoestring fries at Grill Meats Beer (yeah, yeah, not healthy, but if you gotta eat shoestring fries, this is the way to do it).
  • Hop Garden ginger beerThe carrot cake dessert at Shed 5.  Ordered by a guest in my group and I totally forgot to take a photograph.  But imagine a small terracotta pot on its side, three thin slices of carrot cake emerging with a baby carrot riding atop and accompanied by mint gelato. Quite stunning really.  And it counts as healthy because, well, its carrot.  That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

So here’s to another splendid year of tasty experiences…
