This is fantastic news for the food and drink scene in our not-so-sleepy seaside village and continues a spate of developments in gastronomic options for Coogwegians including the opening of "The Little Kitchen" up on the south end of Arden St and the continued evolution of the francophile hole-in-the-wall Le Petit Cafe.
So what is The Little Kitchen you ask?
The Little Kitchen is a beachside foodie destination which echoes the quality product/minimum fuss vibe which saw 3 blue ducks soar. The result of careful planning and execution from husband and wife restaurant industry pros Amy and Neil Thompson. Neil left his job running the kitchen at the hatted Four in Hand and Amy, former front of house at Rockpool.
The food is outstanding. Immaculately crafted plates of damn good, honest cuisine made from scratch. This food is groomed to a state of deliciousness and aesthetic prowess without being too fussy (or wanky). The portions are well sized and the coffee is well good also.
My picks for lunch are the burger or the seared tuna dish. Breakfast options range from the hangover british fave, Kedgeree, through to the full english brekky or a great rendition of eastern suburbs crack (aka avocado on toast with a poached egg). The fare is well priced and the personal touch of this venture really sets them apart.
Can't wait to go back for dinner...
