I came here for a few drinks and some food for a casual night out. They are famous for their cheap steaks on Mondays and they still have a $5 steak on Mondays. So worthwhile if you are on a budget and want a night out.
Neil Perry has a prestigious reputation for Rock Pool and it's delicious food. More recently; everyone is talking about Neil's burger project store which is a replica of the infamous burger served at the Rock Pool Bar (Served at the bar not the restaurant). I had to give the original burger a proper taste to understand its comparison and inspiration for Burger Project! Naturally, I indulged in a few cocktails and some hand cut thick chips (Hand Cut Chips add Wagyu Gravy) to start off with. I loved the gravy that came with the chips which had real tasty chunks of wagyu in the gravy.
When the burger arrived, boy did it make an impression. I could see the beautiful ingredients including the bacon (it looks like a tongue). The full description is David Blackmore?s Full Blood Wagyu Hamburger with Bacon, Gruyere Cheese and Zuni Pickle. The meat is perfectly cooked with enough red in the middle and all the trimmings are delicately put together. The meat is very much, melt in your mouth.
I went here for some friends for breakfast and was very disappointed.
Packed full of waiting staff, it was strangely impossible to get an order taken, and our drinks and food arrived after a very very long wait. The maitre d was very rude.
The brunch is a bit of a joke. Who ever wanted a bowl of scrambled eggs served with toast on a saucer, no butter and warm milk with my tea? The 'build your own' option was pretty much the most inflexible menu I ever beheld.
Don't try to get a fried egg, apparently 'it would just be chaos'.
Always such a shame when such a great location suffers from dreadful service and a lazy brunch menu.
I was impressed by the gentleman that did the job. He was bubbly, outgoing and eager to please and get the job done, how I wanted it. He worked hard to get the carpet stains out and with a lot of attention it turned out really good.
Such a sick hidden bar. It is really quirky, to the point where I don't really know how to describe what it looks or feels like. I think it is a mesh of a number of different cities and genres. Whatever it is, it is a really awesome place to go for a drink, especially a whiskey. It is quite dark inside which adds to the ambiance but the walls are brightly coloured and adorned with various safari animals such as giraffes. The bartenders really know their stuff so ask them to shake you up a cocktail, or five.
One of my favourite cafes, I go quite a lot so it's strange i've never reviewed it. Sitting below Paramount pictures where you can see some old school movies is this trendy cafe and roaster. On this occasion I got a park right out the front and found a table easily, all set up ready for customers. It wasn't too busy, but it is on weekends. They have quite interesting food choices and I in particular love the crumbed eggs. Today I got the bimibab which is a bowl of black rice with shredded carrot, bean sprouts, crispy kale, enoki mushrooms and a fried egg with kimchi (I asked for none on mine) and a tangy sauce. It is absolutely delicious. I had been to the gym and was so hungry that I forgot to take a photo of it!! They serve a good coffee and cold brew. It was an extremely hot day so I got the house made soda with passionfruit and elderflower - perfectly refreshing. Staff are efficient and the ambience is vibrant, people enjoying their cafe experience. The music is modern and fitting for this trendy cafe.
Early breakfast requires us to get sweet and savory, the baked egg was good .. I loved the jalapeno salad as it adds a kick in flavour and to the morning. The waffles was ok, the icecream was nice along with the sauce.
Recently went back to this place and much to my disappointment they have lowered their standard of service here compared to my last review. Every time we used to come here the staff were super attentive and entertaining, however this time the staff lacked customer service, took away my glass of wine when i was not even finished, no explanation of the food they served and overall just disorganised. Food here' is always great, but it doesn't make me that excited to come back here anytime soon.
