We’re back. Aus day hours.

Hey all,

Great to be back this year as per usual. We have had a super relaxing break and look forward to preparing some extra special food for you guys.

Your menu starting today is NEW in format, font and fun ( i needed another word starting with F, I chose fun :) ) No, all jokes aside, fun is important for us and this year it will stem from creativity. We have a new specials approach, basically it’s just adding a few chalkboards around the place and putting up awesome food on a more regular basis.

The same format applies for the front page of the menu, Amanda’s heavenly scrumptious weekend menu addition will still appear however some other cool stuff will go on the blackboards. Spur of the moment inspirations, what’s good at Fruits on Coventry today, something simple but downright tasty, who knows ( not me apparently :) ). They will be just a day or two specials maybe even just a few hours depending on how quick they walk out the door. We will post these on Social media as they are created, so get in fast if you see something you like.

For this weekend we will bringing back the Green chilli scrambled eggs, after it’s small break over the Christmas period, and a few other surprises. One of them is the return of the Kimchee pancakes we did last year, a lunch version. Add some fried eggs for the breakfast experience.

Taco time!

Tacos: roasted pork, chipotle coleslaw, crispy chilli fried egg

TACOS: ROASTED PORK, CHIPOTLE COLESLAW, CRISPY CHILLI FRIED EGG

Alright, it’s TACO TIME. You guys may remember the single serve tacos with tamarind & chipotle, Mexican coleslaw and other bits, we did a year or two ago.

POW A new dish this time, along the same theme, heaps of CRUNCH, ZING and POW, like a batman cartoon. You remember those early batman episodes on the tele box. Quality stuff.

 

El Cielos finest tacos are smothered with lashings of chipotle mayo, crunchy coleslaw and shredded roasted pork. The egg, for that brekkie feel, is mixed with a hint of salsa macha and quickly flash fried crispy, served shredded through the taco. To finish we drizzle some more chipotle oil, why not it’s Mexican isn’t it :)

 

 

 

 

 

 

Buttery creamed corn, mmmmmmm…….

Buttery creamed corn, lime, tarragon, chipotle, herb salad, sourdough

Buttery creamed corn, lime, tarragon, chipotle, herb salad, pine nuts, sourdough

Back in May this year we served a creamed corn dish ,which we hope you guys remember. Here is a line or two from that post, an apt description of the corn cooking process.Couldn’t have put it better myself :)

“Some care and attention has gone into the perfectly textured corn, nicely creamed with mountains of butter. We have made a stock from the corn cobs, leek and garlic for that extra dimension of flavour. The end result is a texture, not heavy and stodgy, but able to hold it’s own on a plate.”

This week we are doing a stripped down version, ingredients, not flavour. A buttery, limey affair with the addition of chipotle, seems appropriate with corn and lime.Served on grain sourdough and finished with a fresh herb salad: tarragon, parsley, spring onion, this is where the chipotle comes into play. You may find it more filling than it looks, feel free to add some awesome Istra bacon if you so desire.

Do you know what Bindaetteok is?

Korean-fritter

Korean style kimchi pancakes, fried egg, salad: bean shoots, daikon, wombok, shiso, sriracha, kewpie mayo

Traditionally Bindaetteok is a pan fried Korean style pancake made with mung beans, kimchi and onions. This is our version.

The base of this pancake is mung beans, they are soaked overnight and blended with rice, chilli, kimchi and tamari. If you are wondering “how good can mung beans be?” like I was, then brace yourself for one of the specials of the year. What a flavour combo: crispy textured pancakes with crunchy fresh vegetables like wombok, daikon…… a fried egg for that breakfast feel, sriracha for that chilli kick, tamari and smooth kewpie mayo to bring it all together.

We are also offering “THE BURGER VERSION”. all the ingredients above, less the egg wrapped up in a Dench brioche bun. A burger with a twist, you guys may want this on the menu :) A bindaetteok burger, that has a ring to it :) Starting Friday.
