It’s winter and we are back for another round at Harvest Espresso to check out Harvest Espresso’s winter menu. This time I was not so lucky and had to queue for a bit to get a table but that does not matter because it is worth the wait. Anyway, let’s take the queueing out and focus on the food, which is much more important.
Dad had the Lamb Meatballs ($22.50) with cumin yoghurt, preserved lemon, apricots, couscous salad and Turkish bread. I had a taste test and it was a hearty and perfect winter’s dish with rustic flavours. The lamb meatballs were delicious and smooth, complementing well with the tomato based sauce. Mmmmm it’s winter comfort food at its finest.

Mum had the Seasonal Winter Vegetables with two slow poached eggs, walnut pesto and sourdough ($19.50). The vegetables consists of pan roasted beetroot, squash, beans, fennel and radish. When the dish arrived, it was bursting with bright leafy green colours which helps brighten up a rainy or a gloomy winter’s day. The vegetables were very fresh and complements well with the walnut pesto. The eggs were poached to perfection with yellow liquid oozing out.

I had the Banana & Peanut Butter Toasted Brioche ($19.50) with toasted muesli, mascarpone and chocolate sauce. Peanut butter, banana and topped with chocolate? The perfect combination. If you love these three elements together, this is the dish for you. It’s a matchmake in heaven. The sweetness of the brioche and chocolate balances well with the peanut butter. It was oh so lovely!

One must not leave Harvest Espresso without ordering the Matcha (Green Tea) Latte. Currently, I am in a Matcha Latte phase. I love the Matcha Latte at Harvest Espresso as it is smooth, creamy and has a very nice aroma and flavours of green tea. Yep, a matcha latte is all I need on a cold wintry day.
Once again, Harvest Espresso did not disappoint and I can’t wait to try their Spring Menu. If you have your 2014/2015 Entertainment Book, check out the Harvest Espresso voucher where you can get 25% off the bill. We will be back soon!
