A glorious summer day calls for a lunch time walk to Chinatown to one of the new kids on the block. We make our way to Home Cafe (Wine Bar) which is one of 3 Home establishments (Home Thai and Home Cafe, QVB)
Home Cafe (Wine Bar) is split into 2 levels. The ground floor is more of the cafe spot where you can grab your morning coffee and some breaky, or have some brunch/lunch throughout the day with coffee is served until late. The top level (which I will have to return to try) serves lunch and dinner and offers a thai inspired menu.
Skim Mocha with an oh so beautiful Swan
Holy Chermola $17
Recommended by our awesome waiter, we order the Holy Chermola which is a plate of fried king prawns with a delicate chermola, parsely, corriander, cumin, lemon and lime juice, saffron, tarragon and market veggies on top of an egg white omelette. Sound heavy? Not at all!
There was a mass variety of fresh, seasonal vegetables and the king prawns had absorbed all the flavours of the chermola which is a mediterranean type marinade. We were joyful over the egg white omelette as it is a great source of protein (gym fanatic talk right here haha). This plate was licked clean because that’s how much we liked it.
The Three Amigos $15
A trio of mini burgers is served on a chopping board (love this type of presentation). First we have a chicken burger with an apple coleslaw and bbq mayo which was a cold sandwich. Next we have the duck burger with chinese red salad and sweet plum dressing. It was my absolute favourite because of the juicy duck meat and it paired so well with the delicious plum sauce. Lastly we have the classic beef burger with cheese and tomato chutney, which was good but nothing spectacular.
Big thanks to Raff for introducing me to this great little find and for taking me for my birthday :) Looking forward to making a return to try the thai food served up on the second level.
