It has been, according to my previous blog post, since May that Jeff and I have visited Oz Kafe. We decided it was time to go back so we had a little dinner date there last night. To note, Oz Kafe is a very popular restaurant so if you want to sit in a decent location make your ressie several days in advance. I only called on Friday so we ended up at a table in a hallway that was positioned so I was sitting at an angle - kind of awkward but worth the back pain. :) Here is what we ordered...I would give details but their menu online is unfortunately not updated.
My sister Jen and her husband went to Oz recently and said we HAD to try the cucumber hendricks. I ordered it and it was PHENOMENAL. Jeff ordered a cocktail with ginger beer, rum and some other goodies (also not on their online drinks menu). It was YUM.
I had what I think was called a baked potato soup. I have loved potato soup since I was a kid and this was amazing. With cheese and sour cream on top - OH YEAH. And for some reason that large chunk of bread was pretty awesome (so light and fluffy).
Jeff ordered, as per last visit, the cheese dreams - their homemade bacon on bread with melted cheese. This is a MUST ORDER.
I ordered the gnocchi, and asked for it sans mushrooms because I loathe mushrooms. The sauce was fantastic - the gnocchi were a bit too big IMHO (comparing to my Nonna's which I should not do) but I devoured all of it so there you go.
Jeff ordered the steak and Caesar again, because STEAK. Fab like last time.
This time we had a tiny it of room for dessert. Unfortunately this was a let-down. Bread pudding. It was unflavoured bread, with some sort of white unflavoured sauce, and a little ball of vanilla ice cream. It seems dessert is not a specialty at Oz and I think next time I will take my sister and bro-in-law's lead and go across the street to Sugar Mountain for dessert instead.
Jeff enjoyed his dessert because CHOCOLATE (chocolate ganache, whipped cream (or something creamy) and ginger cookies).
