Check out the lemon tart and the slide of Portugese custard tart I bought from Victoire!
Victoire lemon and custard tarts
Victoire makes lovely baked goods, a little on the expensive side (considering the size of some – look at that skinny little lemon tart!) but always delicious. Recommended.
Darjeeling at C’est Bon
I like C’est Bon! A late afternoon found me meandering down Darling Street with a friend, unable to find a café that hadn’t just closed (4pm on a Saturday… don’t bother!) Luckily, we tried C’est Bon and they happily furnished us with tea and coffee.
Try their Darjeeling. It was wonderful and I have a sneaking suspicion that it might be one of my favourite teas. It was a generous serve for a good price. There was a range of cakes, but as I was heading out for dinner I didn’t indulge. They looked pretty good.
I might be back – though I think Little Darling Diner is still my favourite, due to how cute the interior is!
I love my local Rozelle markets… for the food!
The gozleme is fantastic – comes in either spicy meat or plain spinach and cheese. They are really popular and by lunch time the lines are pretty long!
There is a drinks stand that does sweets, fresh squeezed juices, and my favourite chocolate thick shake – only $3.50 for a small, uses Hershey’s chocolate syrup and heaps of icecream!
There’s a stand which has nice egg and bacon rolls.
There’s a dim sum place I haven’t tried yet which looks good, as well as a Vietnamese place on Saturdays.
Today, though, I really want to bang on about one place.
The Butcher’s Lunch
The Butcher’s Lunch is a great little set up available at a few different markets on Saturdays and Sundays. They set up on Sunday at Rozelle markets with a slow cooked pork burger and a slow cooked beef burger.
Slow cooked pulled beef roll
The beef is yummy and tender, with some coleslaw to give crunch.
Pork with crackling roll
Yummy pork with crunchy crackling!
I’m not interested in the trash and treasure at Rozelle markets, but I love sitting down with a nice roll and a thickshake, watching people go by.
I had an amazing pizza last night with really disappointing service. I ordered takeaway for dinner, from Il Grappolo in Rozelle. It had a great rating on Urbanspoon and I was craving delicious pizza!
Alarm bells started when I called up to order, after perusing the online menu from their own website, which stated free delivery. I was told that there was a minimum purchase price of $20, after asking for the Prosciutto pizza, which WAS $20 on the website. I was charged $21 upon delivery.
I didn’t question it at the time as I don’t like to cause a fuss, but first of all the woman on the phone made it sound as though the pizza was LESS than the minimum $20 order for free delivery, and then I was asked for MORE than the purchase price on a supposedly “free delivery”.
Il Grappolo Prosciutto Pizza
It’s especially sad because the pizza was so yummy! I’m not a fan of misleading websites and businesses that are happy to lure people in with false promises. If you’re not happy with a minimum $20 order for free delivery (to a location which is 850 metres away!) then say so, amend your policies to a minimum order you are happy with, or tell the customer on the phone the true price and don’t advertise free delivery.
