The restaurant was pretty empty on Sunday lunch time but that was good for we were a rowdy table of 7 with all sorta of requests.
The mussels we ordered were fresh but unfortunately the wine sauce tasted pretty watered down with not much flavor and just extremely salty.
The grandma had a pork patty burger served with gherkins and tater tots. I didn't taste it but it looked a little dry but easily rectified with their beetroot chutney and caramelized onion jam (no pictures but please eat them! SO GOOD!)
Mom's Australian ribeye (200g) that was cooked to a perfect medium.
I loved Dad's order of braised beef short ribs ($42/ serves 2). Extra points for already deboning the meat and there were 3 generous rib portions. As expected, the meat was fork tender and the capsicum sauce worked wonderfully well. There was generous portions of mozzarella cheese on top as well but I found this to be incompatible with the rest of the dish.
The Man had their house burger with blue cheese, wanting to compare that against Park at Holland Village's version. It was also cooked well but the vote of choice remains with Park.
We also ordered the chicken quesadilla and strip loin and lamb chops. All of us enjoyed this time of celebrating together. Lunch ended off with Awfully Chocolate's run with cherry chocolate fudge cake. The cake was so moist and bouncy in a good way. But the cherries could do with a extra boost of rum for I couldn't detect any except for an occasional hint.
