HOT: Piaf – 182 Grey St, South Brisbane.

One of my regular haunts for coffee during the working week, viagra 60mg Piaf was MM’s choice for our pre-movie dinner date recently.  I’m glad to say the same satisfaction they deliver during the day was mimicked after sun down.

Albeit a little understated, ailment Piaf takes up some pretty good real estate on the popular Grey St promenade and all day has a constant stream of coffee and tea goers from the surrounding businesses.  The indoor-outdoor dining area is a great people watching spot and has a casual, cosy feel to it.

For me, Piaf holds fond memories of the BEST breakfast omelette I’ve ever had the pleasure of eating (well before my HOT or NOT days and unfortunately no longer on the brekkie menu).  My dinner experience wasn’t as impressive as the infamous omelette, but it was pretty darn good.

The dinner menu is succinct in both options and pricing – all the entrees have the one price and the same is so for the mains, sides and dessert.  All the meals sound mouth watering with just the right amount of fanciness and intrigue.

We started with a serve of the sour dough and balsamic ($8) which was ample in portions yet fairly standard as far as bread starters go.  For a main, MM chose the steak, a tender and generous side of sirloin with mushroom gravy and sliced kipfler potatoes ($22).  The steak was medium rare as ordered, a little on the fatty side, but delightfully juicy with a perfect gravy.

I chose the fennel and roasted pumpkin cannelloni in white wine sauce ($22).  The cannelloni was baked and served in its own dish, which was a nice touch for presentation.  The fennel and pumpkin flavours were only subtle but perfectly complimented with a rich cheesy white wine sauce.

Both meals were ample in size however there was a distinct lack of token sides or garnish to pick through and for me, a little greenery is always nice so you don’t feel obliged to spend up on over priced side dishes that you’re not likely to finish.  Never the less, we both enjoyed our meals and complimented the chef.

We were a little pushed for time due to our impending movie, which I think un-nerved our waiter a little but regardless, the service at Piaf was prompt and friendly and the night time ambience romantic and relaxed.  It was the perfect start to our mid-week date and we’d return again to do the same.
