Knife and fork talk

AN early stroll along the Swan River on a beautiful day was a great way to kick start our appetite.

We had already chosen our lunch venue in Adelaide Terrace but as we were a little early we did a tourist type traipse and looked at our city through different eyes.

After an hour or more we arrived at the Public House Kitchen and Bar for our meal. Lunch specials are under $20 and there are about five to six choices.

We chose Caesar salad and herbed chick pea and quinoa salad.

The Caesar salad was fresh and tasty, not too much mayonnaise, a liberal amount of anchovy pieces (perfect for this Diva). Included in the Caesar salad was a hard-boiled egg, prosciutto, shaved parmesan, crispy cos and crunchy croutons.

The herbed chick pea and quinoa salad consisted of baby spinach leaves, coriander and parsley, quinoa, chick peas, crumbled feta, pepitas and currants, each ingredient complemented each other, and the blending was perfect. The tahini dressing was subtle and enhanced an extremely satisfying meal.

The attention of the staff was genuine, friendly and helpful. Our young waitress was outstanding in her attentiveness and personality.

Although seated not far from the busy terrace the noise didn’t intrude or spoil the ambience of a very pleasant lunch.
