HOT – Salt – 5 Nash St, Rosalie.

Following the floods earlier this year I’ve developed a bit of a soft spot for Rosalie Village and the surrounding shops, sildenafil so in support of local small business I make a habit of investing in a lunch or two weekly in the area.  

In the past, the Rosalie cafe scene hasn’t really been my cup of tea – much like Park Rd Milton, a little over rated and over priced with a bit too much attitude.  My recent lunch at Salt however saw no signs of pretence and whilst I wouldn’t rave about it, it was a pleasant and tasty experience.

From a cosmetic point of view, Salt has a warm, friendly feel to it with modern decor and a nice alfresco dining area overlooking Nash St and the surrounding area.  The staff were very friendly and attentive and helpful with any queries we had regarding the menu.

There is a range of enticing options on the lunch time menu, including interesting salad combinations, gourmet pizzas and burgers, as well as tasting plates.  With only half an appetite following a large, late breakfast I opted for the warm pork salad ($20.90) with pork medallions, roast pumpkin, fetta, pine nuts and balsamic mixed leaves.  The presentation of the dish was lovely and although the pork was slightly dry and overcooked, the flavours of the salad including the balsamic were exceptional – I really was pleasantly surprised.

JPC decided on the pan fried salt and pepper squid with a Spanish inspired salad ($19.90).  It’s always a gamble with squid and calamari – who knows if it’s going to arrive battered (to death), over-fried and chewy? To be honest, I think JPC would’ve been happier with the greasy option, but what arrived were lovely strips of seasoned and slightly charred squid – no crumbs, batter or chewiness in sight – a top a fresh, green salad with roasted peppers and red onion.

 

Princess also went for a healthy option of the Salt Salad with thyme and lime chicken breast, Tom Thumb tomatoes, fetta, seasoned avocado salsa and wild rocket ($19.90).  The chicken was super tender and plentiful, atop a beautiful fresh bed of salad. The avocado salsa was so divine you could eat it by the spoonful. 

Whilst we really enjoyed our meals I can’t help but think the menu at Salt is slightly over priced by a couple of bucks per item – in my opinion, 20 bucks for a salad is a little hard to swallow.  The helpings weren’t small, but they weren’t exactly huge and I know how much green stuff I can buy at the markets for $20 – it would feed a small army.  Even so, we did have a pleasant and otherwise faultless experience at Salt.

Salt is also open for breakfast and dinner, both of which I’ve heard great things.  If you’ve tried the breakfast menu at Salt, we’d be pleased to hear your thoughts!
