Knife and fork talk with the Dining Divas

seafood marinara

WE set out by train for lunch in Rockingham, or that was the intention.

Being somewhat chatty Divas, Rockingham passed us by due to our hot gossip and reduced attention span.

We eventually arrived in Rockingham via an unintentional visit to Mandurah.

After our little foray we arrived at Latitude 32, our restaurant choice for the month. It was an ideal day for dining by the sea.

We chose from the $19 lunch menu which offered nine choices. We chose seafood marinara and leek, spinach and fetta tart.

The prawns, squid, mussels and fish were well cooked with a garlic and basil Napolitano sauce and then sprinkled with parmesan cheese.

Unfortunately, for my taste the seafood was overpowered by the strong tomato flavour.

Like the curate’s egg this tart was good in parts.

leek, spinach and fetta tart

The first few forkfuls were delicious, the filo was very crisp, the leek, spinach and fetta filling was perfect until the next forkful which was very salty, as it seemed to have little salt bombs throughout the tart.

We thought it may have been sea salt that hadn’t dissolved, which was a pity as it probably was just a glitch on the day.

The service was professional, the staff pleasant and efficient. Indoor and alfresco dining is offered with great views of the ocean.
