Lucy Liu


My recent visit to Lucy Liu (same owner as The Smith) looked like this:


















The food was fabulous as you can see, although I felt the service was a bit rushed. 

Doughboys, Doughnuts done right



Hands down best doughnuts around. Homer Simpson would be in seventh heaven for sure.

Meatmother

A few weeks ago I visited Meatmother on Swan Street. The american inspired menu looked amazing and literally was a meat lovers dream. I chose the Pulled Pork Bun Tray and my side was Mac & Cheese.

The meat itself was incredibly flavoursome and tender and I loved the contrast with the chipotle slaw.

However, I felt that the Mac & Cheese was missing some punch. It needed some seasoning or spice or some sharp parmesan cheese, it tasted a little flat. On the plus side, the crumb topping added a nice crunch element to it.

I thought overall that the portions were quite small for the price (the above was $20). One of the others who I went with ordered the Pork Belly Meat Tray for example an only received one piece of meat and one small side for $23. 

I shall return sometime (most likely on a payday! Ha-ha)
