Footscray 3031: The Reverence

The 45 minute wait for my chimichanga was worth it.

The generous servings and variety of gluten free, meat, vegetarian and vegan options on the menu attract a wide range of people.

My two daughters came with me to this run down bar in Footscray and were very pleased with the busy young crowd, and their meals. The pulled pork made from jackfruit, with apple sauce and almonds pleased my youngest daughter, and the eldest enjoyed the vegan quesadillas immensely. However she thought the bar’s slim selection of hot sauces could be improved.

Footscray does it again with fresh, affordable vegetarian food. I recommend this to anyone looking for decent bar food in inner west Melbourne.

Melbourne 3000: Mrs Parma’s

Mac & Cheese Eggplant Parma – Don’t get me wrong I love the Victorian beer here but the last time I went I ordered the eggplant with mac and cheese topping without the ham and I was expecting it to be just as great as the parmas I have had here previously.
When it arrived it looked like someone had spewed on my plate. Usually the flavours are spot on here, but you don’t put oregano on top of mac and cheese. The cheese and the b├ęchamel flsvours were inseparable. It would be great if there was a separate mac and cheese option, and even better if this was included on the gluten free menu.
In regards to service the meal came on time and the waiter with the orange hair was the happiest and friendliest person I have ever met in hospitality.
For the mac & cheese topping, Mrs Parma needs to go back to Spice School and learn what to put on b├ęchamel (hint: nutmeg, thyme).

Brunswick 3056: Cornish Arms Hotel

Went here for lunch on a Saturday with friends. Usually order the vegan Parma which is great but this time opted for the chicken burger (vegan).
It was good value as it came with a side of chips for $12. However, it would be good if there was an option for salad instead of chips. Regarding the actual burger it was flavourless and too overly processed (soy cheese, gluten chicken, fake bacon) and didn’t have enough sauce or lettuce.
