Caffe Laffare – WOAP

www.misopeckish.comMy second WOAP eat f0r 2017.  I must admit after flicking through the number of dine pages, there were not a lot of options that tickled my fancy this year.   What I have noticed over the years is the increase in price for a WOAP meal.  I recall a few years ago you could get a decent lunch option  for $15, now everything seem to cost at a minimum $20-$25.

Anyhow getting back on track and being a bit unsatisfied with my first dine burger, I wanted something more, and the only thing left on my radar was Caffe Laffare dine option.

I arrived just before lunch time to avoid disappointment of not getting a seat and the lunch time rush, since I was dining with Sweet Pea.    One good thing about this cafe is that there is a  small toddlers table with toys which they can play with while you have your meal in peace which was nice.

Rare eye fillet  – Wow did it look like a decent meal and for the price of $20 it was not only value for money but also very tasty.  The eye fillet was cooked perfectly where it was still pink/red in the middle accompanied by a good sized portion of potato gratin some delicious duck, mushroom truffle parfait  the baby vegetables were slightly a mixed bag, where some were cooked perfectly and some still had a bite to it.  but that did not bother me as much as it did with Sweet Pea who seemed to have developed a liking to the softer vegetables.











Meat Meat Meat – Housemade triple meat patty with gruyere and charred red pepper slaw in a brioche bun, with L’affare’s classic fries.   There is not a lot to say about this burger, as I thought it was relatively tasteless and boring.  The fries were soggy, the burger patty itself was a bit too dry for my liking.  I am still unsure what is the triple meat that makes up the burger.

Dear reader, where have you dined during WOAP?   Do you have any good recommendations?
