Lamonts is certainly one of our favorite spots to have a meal and drink in the Swan Valley – with each an al fresco space, beneath the gum timber, or inside tables adjoining to the sampling counter, and one other café-blind enclosed room off to at least one aspect full with patio heaters for cooler days. As it was on this present day – it was fairly full however Fiona discovered us a spot and we began off with a glass of their wonderful new launch Bunyip Rosé whereas we selected our meals.
The menu has numerous tempting dishes, with quite a lot of small dishes to permit you to make up a platter to share if that’s your want.
A shared dish of prawn rolls kicked us off – two filo wrapped sausages of minced juicy prawn meat, infused with lemon grass, garlic and ginger together with candy chilli dipping sauce was an excellent begin. And issues solely acquired higher…
An excellent dish of soused and herbed salmon fillet got here subsequent – succulent and luscious, tender fish draped over a mound of crunchy inexperienced beans in dill sauce, and accompanied by a number of candy, sluggish roasted cherry tomatoes – completely nailed this dish. Loved it.
And lastly a pie – crumbly pastry encasing wealthy, tender hen with walnuts including a pleasing crunch, and all pimped up with fragrant cinnamon – spot on.
As I stated we actually like this place – high quality meals and wine, nice service, pleasant and welcoming – all the time hits the mark; it is best to get alongside and with spring on its means it is going to be all the extra interesting out beneath these timber.
