foxley bistro- I went again last night to see if it was as fantastic as I remember. I'm still not into his non-fish preparations (last time had ribs with what I considered to be a sickly sweet heavy sauce - but i'm sure this is a personal preference- ; this time i tried the pork belly and i swear it had the same sauce), but the fish is amazing. I want to eat fish now and I was NEVER a person to order fish in a restaurant.
we had: pea and mushroom dumplings; green apple/tomato salsa and blue nose NZ bass ceviche; sea bream ( i think) ceviche with crispy shallots; grilled shrimp and calamari with cucumber and mango; and the pork belly. Loved it. the room was ridiculously hot though, and when we were waiting for a table, we asked where we could go for a drink. They sent us across the road to "The crooked Star", I believe it was called.
Um. Am I alone in thinking it is totally gross to be in a bar, look over and see a dog flailed out on the bench sleeping- then look over and see his dog food and water right beside me?
