|glass of Jansz $12|
I chose a refreshing glass of Tasmanian champers, while my old mate had a pot of green tea. He is very conscious of his health and has far more willpower than I do :=)
|pot of tea $4|
See my hands and phone reflected in the tea pot? Hilarious.
|salmon w/- mashed sweet potato $26|
This was a really flavoursome dish. I loved the sweet potato mash, all smooth and yes sweet; the grilled asparagus was just tender enough and crunchy enough to be perfect; and the salmon was a delight. There was crispy skin, and a beautifully tender middle, with a pat of herb butter on the side to add to the beautiful flavour combo. So glad I picked this one!
|Greek salad $12|
Like I said, Mr. L was being very circumspect that day. He chose an entrée-sized salad, which was fairly substantial and good value for $12.00. It had the usual suspects: fetta, olives, cucumber and onion dressed with extra virgin olive oil. No complaints there. I would have loved to indulge in a dessert, or a cake from the display cabinet, but alas I was too full of delicious fish. And you know Mr. L is too health-minded for such things :=)
The Pickings Verdict: a fine place to have lunch and watch the watery world go by. Lunch was delicious, and we enjoyed a relaxing time out.
They are licensed, and do breakfast, lunch and dinner. Take the kiddies as there is a kids' menu also. It's worth taking a little time afterwards, and going for a stroll along the river path. Check out the yachts moored nearby, the artworks, and beautiful, historical Yungaba, the old migrant hostel which is going to become luxury apartments. Oh, and you can take a gander at Story Bridge which hangs in the sky.
