Eating highlights – Jan15

January was a busy month with lots of New Year catch ups and good eats. Here are some of my favourites.

Mac and cheese, tempeh burger The HensonY’all know I’m a big fan of the veg options at The Henson in Marrickville so when they announced on their Facebook page that they had a new dish, I had to grab some pals and go check it out.

The baked mac ‘n cheese with kale, chunks of portobello mushrooms and four cheeses was well worth the visit and perfect for sharing. Visiting The Henson is always a great excuse for me to have that killer tempeh burger again.

Desserts at Chiswick, WoolahraAs beautiful as Chiswick at Woollahra is, it’s really not ideal for vegetarians. There’s only one veg main dish on the menu (mushroom ravioli) and unfortunately it wasn’t as impressive as I’d hoped. The desserts on the other hand, were a big hit.

Between four of us we share an orange and passion fruit pavlova, a caramel parfait with peanut praline (winner) and a chocolate and cherry mousse.

Rubyfruit, LeuraOn a sunny Sunday I spent the day in Leura with the family for Sport for Jove’s Leura Shakespeare Festival and we headed to Rubyfruit for lunch before the show. We shared a fantastic Asian noodle salad, a burrito bowl and a Ruby burger.

It’s always compulsory to try the sweet treats so we got a lime and coconut cupcake and a jam donut cupcake to snack on at the show.

Oceans Dining and DrinksThanks to an invite from host Billy Law, I went to my first instameet, held at the newly renovated Oceans Dining and Drinks in Coogee. While we were on the balcony enjoying drinks the waitress brought around this pretty platter of veg canapés. The fig, mushroom, asparagus and cheese was my favourite.

Friends, I’d love to hear about the memorable eats you had in January – got any favourites?
