“The paperback holiday novel, referred to as 'pulp fiction'
for the low grade paper that it is printed on,
is still able to provide a memorable reading experience."
- Christian Hauberg
While in Canberra for work, it is immensely difficult to find a place for dinner. After a few wrong turns we stumbled upon Ainslie shops. Despite our intention to eat at the restaurant next door, which offered Vietnamese cuisine, we only realised our error when we were given the menu! The food turned out to be a pleasant surprise.
with extra virgin olive oil
(there is nothing better than freshly baked bread served hot to the table!)
beef tenderloin medallion
mustard bearnaise and shoe string fries
(massive pile of fries overcompensated for the small portion of meat)
with chive gnocchi and melted morbier
(first time I tried morbier-
a rich and creamy cheese with slightly bitter aftertaste.
the soft elastic texture complemented the chive gnocchi well.
spatchcock was a welcome alternative to chicken and perfectly cooked)
To conclude the night, the setting felt like a scene from the novel!
