the somewhat indistinct exterior hides a welcoming and pleasant, neighbourhood gem of a restaurant

their winelist looks fairly complete 
but they also have a range of classic 
and unique cocktails on offer

Their menu gladly boasts of the use of locally available produce 
and not to mention, sustainable seafood 
and all presented in creative dishes

sustainability is important for Lamchop 
so that's a plus 

tuesdays they have a special $49 for any 
entree
main
dessert 
incredible value

entree 
kingfish, pepper seared? 
on a bed of vegetables and a light sauce 
a refreshing start to the meal

IMG_1688

entree
corned pork, barbequed corn 
garnished with some green herbs

whats corned pork?
they use the fattiest part of the pig 
cut off the meat, 
and what's left over is just the fat 
thats what this dish is. 
AND IT IS SO FREAKING GOOD

Lamchop couldn't stop smiling 
while that fat melted in her mouth

main
Roasted duck breast
with beetroot that is honey spiced

the cut of duck is well picked 
relatively lean and more meaty
than what some restaurants offer
but cooked extremely well
and was very tender

IMG_1691

main
lamb cooked two ways
sauce is strong and has a kick of flavour to it
just how I like it 
meat was very tender and satisfying to eat
and the potato and veggies accompanying the dish were a treat

IMG_1692

dessert
dark chocolate tart, honeycomb,
and salted caramel ice cream
fruit slices
beautifully presented 
salted caramel ice cream

IMG_1693

dessert
banana in a pastry 
with popcorn and icecream 
and a side of more toffee/caramel 
15min preparation required 

again, very well presented 
a warm, sweet finish to my meal 
leaving me very satisfied 
and already in my mind 
I have every intention to revisit this place
to try their degustation
