Got an invite to stop by for brunch on Saturday. The Cafe is located just above Hawker Lane on Level 3 in Westfield Chatswood and it doesn't strike you as your typical indoor cafe.
This guys have some connections with The Grounds of Alexandria so you can see a little bit of influence. They serve the grounds coffee too!
The cafe design itself makes you feel you're inside a beautiful garden atrium! With flower pots hanging from the ceiling and glass panel windows! So pretty and relaxing.
Both Chris, Adam and little Chris together with their very helpful staff brought out some of their top dishes to sample!
Top favourites for the drinks was the Lychee and mint and salted caramel. For mains it was the french toast, fruit salad, prosciutto & asparagus soldiers and smoked chicken breast salad!
Good food taste and presentation wise and great customer service. This place is definitely on the "to visit" list so get to it!
BBQ! BBQ! - American style BBQ!
In honour of the upcoming Meat stock fest at the Entertainment quarter this Feb 13-14 its only fitting i blog about meat!
You know how when you watch too many American cooking shows based in Texas all you can think about is brisket? Yeah i know that feeling.
Coming to Bovine will help fulfill those BBQ cravings.
Shared among a group of 5 gals we got the Platter for 2 $60 which comes with 3x200 GM & 2 sides.
We got the brisket, pulled lamb and chicken and because a few of the gals were foodies, the talented Mr Anton threw in some Hot link and an extra side! Wooo
Hmmm BBQ meat! Top fav's were the brisket and pulled lamp, so soft and that smoky flavour! Amazing!
The Hot link was very spicy! So much pepperrrrrr! Tasty and different.
The place does not take reservations so its more an order at the counter, find a free spot and sit and wait for that tasty BBQ!
Also say hi to boss man Anton if you see him :)
Came here with a few foodie friends to celebrate my birthday and it was sensational!
Arrived just around 6pm on a Sunday and it wasn't too busy yet.
The interior for this place somewhat reminds me of New York! High ceilings with an open kitchen that extends for most of the length of the restaurant.
Still or sparking water is $2 per person either way so go for the sparkling and get some fizz in your life! ;)

Loved everything that was brought out to the table.
The english breakfast tea for two come out on a stand which you got to pour the mushroom tea into little tea cups - very nice.
Service was excellent and very attentive. We all agreed that we would indeed be back as everything was spectacular!
I like trying new things, visiting new places and going on food adventures. I keep it short, simple and sweet!
