03 Sep Stagger Lee’s, Fitzroy
From the people who brought us Proud Mary comes Stagger Lee’s, not far from Johnston St. During my visit it had a relaxed, casual vibe, perfect for anything from a catch-up to a place to grab a coffee while doing some work. It’s a vibe which I feel is missing from many cafes as they become busier and more popular.
Chris Hamburger’s menu is based around simple comfort food and coffee is single origin only. My pick from the Winter Menu was the roasted lamb. Priced at $16.50, I was worried there’d only be four pieces of lamb on the plate. Not to worry! There was plenty of meat to go around. I loved the colours in the dish; such a pretty plate! The ingredients all went really well together, from the comforting roast lamb to the smooth, tasty hummus and the fresh pop of the pomegranate seeds. The molasses brought a nice depth of flavour and tied the whole dish together.
I have to say I was pleasantly surprised and thoroughly satisfied with my meal. I’m interested to see what their Spring menu brings forth in the near future!
