Cruising down Stirling Highway

This is a long overdue post. Heck! Stirling Highway takes over the space formerly occupied by Haato at Ridgewood Close. Conceived by a bunch of university friends who, in their own words, bonded over winery road trips, BBQ parties, cafe-hopping and Masterchef tv marathons in Australia, they decided to create their own epicurean haven. The name of the cafe pays tribute to the road where they lived that took them on their hunt for great grub and from where it sparked their budding passion for food through experiments in the kitchen at home.  

An admirable range of cakes on display.
Simple furnishings.
The lions love to sit outside listening to the sounds of
water falling at the nearby pool area.
Free high fives for the kid in you.
Robust coffee made with beans from Highlander.
Prawn Pesto ($16.00) with sauteed prawns tossed in a
homemade basil spinach pesto was surprisingly, a little
bland. Pass some chili flakes and garlic, please.
Pulled Pork Pancakes ($14.00)
Three layers of buttermilk pancakes with Jack Daniel's
infused maple syrup. The pancakes were outstandingly good;
they were informed that the batter is made from scratch
in the kitchen every day. They agreed with online reviews
that the pulled pork was too salty though. A little less
heavy handed with the salt will make this dish perfect.
Peanut Butter Banana Cake. It was quite hard and dry
when it first came out. Wait for it to thaw in the warm, humid
weather here and voila, c├ęst delectable!
Snooze mode on.
A little deli selling latin food items at Ridgewood Close.
The lions grabbed a pack of nachos and a bottle of
Mexican salsa for a movie marathon at home.
One bottle wasn't enough apparently... ...
