One wouldn’t expect to find anything decent in a small (but cute) tourist town like Leura, deep in the Blue Mountains a few hours outside of Sydney.
But this little cafe and deli looked fairly appealing.
And pastries. Savory pies are common in Australia — I happen to like them.
The interior had a nice view and was painted a lurid green that invaded all the photos.
Apple juice — in Australia it’s usually cloudy. Mr. Picky didn’t like it.
Pappadum & Smoked Salmon Salad. Tasmanian smoked salmon, camenbert, avocado & pappadums with our special dressing. Interesting Indian/Australian fusion.
Caramelized onion & goat’s cheese tart.
Tandoori Chicken. Served with rice, pappadum, raita, & sweet mango chutney. More Indian fusion. Not bad actually.
Given the Burger/Fish & Chip vibe of most of the other places in town these was some welcome sophistication. And very Australian somehow.
