The Flinders Street Project Part 2
My friend B had recently started his new job on the east end of the CBD. I wanted to see how he was going and if he was settling in okay so I suggested we catch up over lunch. He recommended The Flinders Street Project which was 2 blocks from his work place. Having had an amazing breakfast experience there recently I was so excited to return to try out their lunch menu.
This time I chose the watermelon, strawberry, apple and lime juice. I love the juice combinations they have available. It was a beautiful and vibrant red, delicious and refreshing.
I ordered the lamb, couscous and almond sausage roll with cucumber and herb salad and labneh. The sausage roll was huge! Talk about generous servings! The pastry was rich, buttery and flaky and the lamb was so soft and moist inside. How cute is my little labneh? It was thick, rich, creamy and tangy. The cucumber salad was so fresh and crunchy and completed the dish beautifully.
B had been here twice before for lunch and really enjoyed his meals previously. This time he ordered the Korean beef salad with fried egg, vermicelli, fresh herbs and crispy shallots. Unfortunately B didn’t enjoy his meal. He said the beef was a bit bland and needed more spice and the vermicelli noodles were a little undercooked.
For me I really enjoyed my meal and I really love this place. It’s one of my new favourite brunch spots that I can’t stop raving about. It’s such a shame B didn’t enjoy his meal on this occasion. I still think they do amazing food. The portions are so generous and so beautifully presented. Definitely a favourite for breakfast and lunch in my books.
