oomphatico's

Caught up with an old friend at the lovely Oomphatico's a few weeks ago and tried the lamb. It wasn't great. The cut of meat wasn't fleshy enough and it wasn't worth the effort trying to cut the meat off the bone. Why is it so difficult to get good lamb these days?

Also did not like the selection of vegetables on the side.

But I still like Oomphatico's. The decor is just lovely. Will be back for tea with girlfriends for sure.

hairloom & caramel salon/cafe/home

Lunch with Kate on the day I did something to my hair...

This cafe is adorable. It's nestled within a hair salon so look for Hairloom when trying to get to it.

The vibe is eclectic cuteness.

The salon looks nice. Might try it one day.

I had a root beer float. Serving was rather small, but root beer floats are always good.

Our pastas were very simple fare. They were not outstanding but nothing bad about them. Except the pasta could have been more al dente. Interesting choice of ingredients and flavours. I did like how mine tasted. It was the first time I had aglio olio with a strong lemon taste and it was quite refreshing. Very generous with the mentaiko too.

We shared a carrot cupcake. It was quite good although the icing could have been a little less sweet.

I love the cosy corner with the armchairs basking in the light from the glass panels.

May or may not go back for food but will definitely stop by to rest feet and have refreshments if I'm in the area.
