wow excuse my incredibly unimaginative titles today; my brain is a little too tired to be witty right now.
this was a double ended farewell nomz – my america travel buddy is going to the UK for 2 years for work! i will miss him.
was recommended NSHRY in albert park by lara, so me + poops decided to go check it out….talk about fail bipolar weather melbourne! its already supposed to be summer, but we were welcomed by a cold, wet, fail morning -___-
anyway NSHRY was a lot smaller than i expected! literally was like a little tiny water-side place…only big enough for a few tables inside, and a few outside.
i was pretty unimpressed with the service, i had to say – as there was no specific entry, only a glass sliding door – so when i slid it open and entered, there was no greeting and all i got was a stare from the girl behind the counter. errr….and then after about 5 minutes of looking around wondering what to do, she finally was like, “so…do you want a table?” ….well yes. thats why im here…?
if she was new; fair enough – given she had no idea what the single origins were either; nor which ones were good with coffee. but thats okay. at least greet customers!
this fail was made up by the food – which i have to say, i REALLY liked. we were unable to try the famed umami burger as we came before lunchtime; but i was pretty happy with my panko-crumbed fritters. suuuper tasty!!:) the coffee [me + poops both got the el salvador single origin; they had 3 to choose from] for me at least, was pretty average. i couldnt really taste the blend in my cappuchino. do i sound like a coffee snob now? haha…
anyway, id recommend NSHRY for the food, but definitely not for the service. enjoy! one again sorry for the fail photos – my phone camera was dirty -__-
spot the black milk leggings…hahahahah.
i cant remember what this was…some kind of breakfast omelette??
my panko-crumbed corn + zucchini fritters. with a poached egg + avocado + smoked salmon. SO GOOD.
mmm. food pr0n.
