savour & devour - mar 2012
We love Savour and Devour. Back back back in the day (when Brendon Kerry was still with us and Red became Husk), we would pull up outside the door and, before we were seated at our table, our coffees were hot, ready and waiting for us. Impressive. And... at night, way before there was a pitter patter of little feet on the studio floor, Blair and Lou would pop there for wine and tapa thingos - delish. Anyway, the nostaglic point being...they have a great track record. And they keep us coming back time after time.
Though there's a bit of a limit on customers due to the smaller size of the cafe, Savour and Devour does flow to an outdoor seating area at the back - we hovered awkwardly around trying to seat six of us on a two tables-for-two until the proactive waitress sorted us out, merged tables and got us seated. Food was prompt and they accommodated our sporadic ordering system very well. Presentation of the kitchen food was amazing, the cabinet food less so, but all still yummy and pretty quick really. Coffee hot and strong. Front door busy with people going to and fro.
If there were such a thing as a 'Husk' happy place, Savour and Devour would be it, and that is still even after 'Mr Gladeye' moved on (as Janina so affectionately named him). Ask her about that.
had theMalay Chicken Curry with Coriander Rice and a Mocha. She said 'Ah ah ah. Very. Ah ah. Hot (as in temperature, not as in curry)! I had to get half of it to go cos it was still too hot to eat by the time the rest of the Huskies had finished eating. Yummo though.'
had the Creamy Chicken Pasta Salad and an Allganics Apple and Blackcurrant Sparkling Juice. She said 'For some reason, it always seems to take longer to have the cabinet food served than the kitchen menu. Not the smartest move for me as I am a slow eater and even more disappointing that my lunch wasn't as good as previous kitchen menu things I have had before.
How good was it?
