New restaurant has best hand-cut chips
check on our meals to see if everything was alright.
For starters shared breads with dukkah and dips ($10) and toasted brioche with poached pear, vanilla mascarpone and hazelnut praline ($15). The dukkah and dips were fantastic and the brioche would hit the spot of anyone wanting something on the sweeter side. We then ordered the seafood chowder ($18), the slow cooked pork shoulder with harissa, red cabbage and apple slaw on toasted focaccia ($18) and the beef burger and hand cut chips ($19.50). The food was well presented and were a good size, except the burger which was on the small side. However, the chips were mouth watering. I can say I have not eaten a chip that tasted so good in a long time. The seafood chowder was packed with mussels, prawns, bacon and potato but the pork was slightly colder then I thought it should have been. There was a range of cabinet food as well. I look forward to testing out more of what was on offer on the dinner menu, the extensive wine list and cocktails.
The restaurant, which opened last year, also offers outdoor dining and an outdoor play area for the kids. Whether catching up for a quick coffee, looking for a fresh place to dine or wanting somewhere to have a sneaky drink, I would recommend Graze.
