Devon Cafe revisited in time for their new summer 2014-2015 menu. You can find my previous reviews here: Devon I and Devon II. The popular Breakfast with the Sakuma’s and Eggs Blini stayed, Little Lost Bread has been relooked from nutella/peanut to strawberries. The two new menu items other than the three reviewed down here are only available for lunch:
- Fillet ‘o’ Devon – Battered John Dorry fillet, tartare sauce, baby fennel and sorrel, brioche bun with onion rings – $21
- Roast Pork Roll – Roast free range pork, Asian slaw, crispy onion, nahm jim sauce on brioche roll with chips – $19.50
OGRE ‘HAPPY MEAL’ $21
Seared ox-tongue, hash potatoes, cauliflower puree, pickled and fried onion, fried egg
This dish elevated my expectations of how ox tongue should be served.
‘NAKED’ BRUSCHETTA $14.50
Roasted pumpkin, pea and goat’s curd mousse, sage and konbu crunch, soybeans, pea tendrils, focaccia, 63′ egg
Naked or deconstructed bruschetta was pretty good. Sweet elements like the pumpkin and mousse with a slight tanginess along with soybeans were great. Everybody would eat this in their own way, I started with my 63′ egg yolk porn by dipping my bread in. This is actually the first time I have had fresh soybeans and quite neutral more like a starch. Pumpkin was cooked and seasoned well, overall it is a light (won’t fill you up) tasty vegetarian dish however I would not re-order, just because I like having some meat on the plate.
MY SECOND ASIAN COUSIN GONE SUMMERY $14
Tapioca and coconut pudding, fresh mango, young coconut jelly, chia seeds, macadamia and freeze dried lychees.
Would I go again?
