The Crux & Co I have to say is one of must absolute favourite patisserie to go to for a tasty coffee and a side of tasty sweet… anything from delicious buttery croissants to cakes. Okay they’re not so cheap but hey, I girl who work hard got to treat herself?!
This time I decided to try out their lunch menu with a girlfriend. At 1pm on a week-day I must say it definitely isn’t the easiest place to get a table. At 33 degrees, sitting outside in one of their cute chic table surely wasn’t the most ideal location however as soon as I got a sneak peek of the other diner’s orders I simply refused to walk away.
Service was great. The girls were professional, efficient and always with a smile. Foods came out within 10-15min.
I ordered myself the Pork belly burger served with pickled slaw and hand cut wedges. At $19.50 for the menu it’s definitely a lil bit more expensive than my usual lunch cost however it came out presented rather beautifully. The slaw was perfectly pickled with the right amount of pork belly between the sweet brioche buns. Sometime I just wish the pork belly to have a little bit less fat on them and more meat?
My friend ordered the Scotch quail eggs, aranchini & falafel services on mixed beans and chilli concasses. The dish came out on a large plate, with such vibrant colours that is way too pretty to eat. My friend said that the dish was well balance and was very tasty. However again at $20.50, it is a bit pricey and a rather large dish for lunch.
Overall a lovely lunch experience and I would definitely come back again on another sunny day!
