Long Story Short

Long Story Short is located in the quiet part of Bridge Rd, Richmond, previously Zaza's. If you are following my blog, it is very close to an omakase restaurant Minamishima. The menu is design to be a mixture between Modern Australian and Asian cuisine.

I was originally invited to their summer menu launch but I was currently in Indonesia on December, visiting my parents so sadly I could not attend. They said, they are planning on another event on January but it never happen so finally I decided to visit them on my own. It was on a Sunday morning around 9pm, I was amaze by the spacious area with various seatings arrangements starting with tables for 2-4, communal tables, sofas and private dining areas. Long Story Short is perfect for large group of people or even functions. It was decorated with wooden furnitures, strategically placed plants, a splash of green on the sofas and fancy cold drip equipments. Allowing you to decide how strong your coffee by setting the time between the drops. The longer the time between the drops, the stronger it will be.

I came here for their matcha latte with white chocolate sphere and marshmallow but sadly they run out of their white chocolate sphere so I decided to order their second best Sisko Hot Chocolate Sphere with marshmallow ($11.5). The perfectly smooth chocolate sphere sitting on the bed of chocolate and when you pour in the hot milk it will melted and the marshmallow will pop from the inside then melted into the hot chocolate. It does have drama and it taste good as well but I do think they are pretty expensive.

I also order my regular Skinny Cappuccino and it a decent cup of coffee by Proud Mary. The milk was fluffy and served on the right temperature.

Originally, I wanted to order the Pan Fried Salmon but apparently they don't have salmon that day so I opted for the Crispy Soft Shell Crab - LSS slaw, mint, fresh chilli, coriander, pikkadilly seeds and lemon mayo ($22). The portions was generous, plenty of salads and it was sweet, sour and refreshing. The soft shell crab it self was crunchy and well seasoned.

Free Ranged Scrambled Eggs on Toast ($9.5) with mushrooms ($3.5). The scrambled eggs was well made and well portioned.

Long Short Story is still relatively new with spacious, modern and chic place, plenty of parking and signature chocolate sphere drinks, it could be one of the trending cafe in Richmond soon.
