Cafe Mint*

During my last catch up with C,
we embarked upon a delightful stroll around Surry Hills
in search for 'something different'.
As a result, 
we discovered an inconspicuous Modern Middle Eastern cafe. 
Think of it as a fusion of cuisines
from Morocco to Turkey, and beyond.

*Be warned, this menu is predominantly comprised of lamb

pomegranate marinated lamb fillet skewers
with mint yoghurt & salad
(vibrant colours were popping off the plate. 
citrus accents lifted the salad and provided a welcome tang 
to contrast against the heavy lamb aroma.)

spicy merguez lamb sausages and lamb kafta 
baked in chackchouka with peas & mint, 
served with corn herb bread
(A divine nod to a classic North African dish of 
baked eggs with roasted peppers, onion and tomatoes.)
