The Snug, Amanda Palmer and Missy Higgins in St Kilda
I finally decided on the taco appetiser. It was the jackfruit pulled pork that I really wanted to try as I have read about it but have never had it. The pulled pork was paired with slaw, avocado salsa and barbecue corn, as well as some pineapple salsa on the side. I really loved all the flavours and colourful vegies. The pineapple salsa was really tasty. The jackfruit was surprisingly soft and the tacos were so saucy that after eating one with my fingers, I had to eat the rest with a knife and fork for fear of wearing the sauce.
Faye and Cindy and Michael that the servings at The Snug are very generous. Yet I still could not resist ordering some fries to share with E. (He had a soda bread breakfast roll which was very unvegan with eggs, bacon and sausage!) The chips were excellent. Freshly fried, crispy and tasty. It was a huge serving and between the two of us, we didn't finish it.
Lastly I ordered a side of rice paper bacon. Though I have made it at home, this is the first time I have seen it in a cafe. I was curious to see how they did it. They kindly did this even though it was not on the menu. It was crispy with very little seasoning but it is intended to be served with meals. I crumbled mine up and put it in my tacos, which I enjoyed.
We looked out over some rundown buildings in Fitzroy Street. It is amazing to drive through St Kilda and admire the beautiful tree lined streets with elegant heritage buildings and then turn in to Fitzroy Street and see how disappointing the modern architecture is along that strip. Hard to believe I worked in that street many years ago.
