Adventures around Smith Street: South of Johnston, Pop Up Scroll and Gelato Messina

**Sorry for the lack of posts recently. I’ve been sick with the flu and it just wouldn’t go away… this is one stubborn flu! But I’m getting better now so you can expect a few catch up posts this week. ūüôā Ani**

South of Johnston

We were very excited to visit South of Johnston because there were lots of things on the menu that we wanted to try. We ended up getting a pumpkin omelette and the burger of the week (pulled pork), but we look forward to going back to try the French toast, corn fritters and chorizo baked eggs!

Soy iced chai

Wendy ~¬†I was happy about¬†the strong tea flavour in this iced chai, which meant it¬†had been brewed with¬†chai tea rather than artificial chai latte powder. The soy milk of course wasn’t¬†as creamy as normal milk, but the scoop of ice cream helped to make up for this and¬†to sweeten the drink. Continue reading

Rocket and 2Pocket: burgers & fries … coffee & chai

It’s been a couple of weeks since the last blog post. For most of the past week, one of us was¬†down at the beach¬†‘enjoying’ the cold wind and random bouts of rain (the weather was not cooperating). So in the next few posts we will catch you up on all the places we visited before the rainy beach week.

Rocket Burger and Fries

Like with Lindt Cafe, we came to Rocket to take advantage of an online voucher,¬†because what student doesn’t like vouchers? The voucher was a Scoopon for any burger + soft drink or water for $6, which we think was a pretty good deal. We also took the opportunity to try the fries because we wanted to know how they compare with other places (i.e. Lord of the Fries).

Wendy ~ This was the first burger I’d had in a while.¬†I was a bit hesitant to order it because¬†I was worried that it would be overly greasy, but it wasn’t like that at all. Continue reading

Stovetop (part 2: poached eggs) and gelato at Helados Jauja

Stovetop 

After our visit to Stovetop¬†last week¬†we couldn’t wait to come back to try more things on their menu. This time¬†we ordered three different poached egg dishes: the sweet potato & amaranth hash, the wild mushroom ragout and the citrus cured salmon. Overall, the food wasn’t quite as tasty as what we ordered last week… but it was still made with quality¬†ingredients and was beautifully presented on the plate.
