.When we moved to Milton 3 years ago we lamented that we might miss excellent coffee and excellent foodyou get used to just down the road in Sydney.
Blake and Mel at Little Ganga have us sorted on the caffeine front and Alex and Jo are doing EXCELLENT food just down the road at St Isidore.
My wife and I have been regular visitors since they opened and Alex's food just seems to get better with every visit.
There's a deftness of touch to the food, an attention to detail which gives due respect to and accentuates the fresh produce grown in their kitchen gardens.
Tonight we started with melt in your mouth Char grilled octopus. My wife rarely even contemplates occie but is happy to share this one.
Spanner crab, oyster and fried chicken bits for entree is now also favourite. A dish that challenges the palate and makes you thankful for it. Beautifully balanced.
Rib eye steak for main with REAL horseradish butter and green tomato chutney had me struggling for its size but I showed that 400gm who was boss!
Fresh house grown salad leaves for a side deserves mentioning too.
Snuck in a sorbet and cheesecake for desserts (just). The deconstructed cheesecake was good but I've had better. The best I've ever had was on our first visit to St Isidores.
The service from Jo and Sacha is always professional, attentive and most importantly friendly.
We think we're really lucky to live in a lovely little town like Milton, and we're just as lucky to have St Isidores as our local food heaven.
