Left Field

Left Field recently open their doors in early May this year and has been popular ever since. The locals are pretty enthusiast with the new cafe offering breakfast and lunch from the famous owner (Tall Timber, Touchwood, Rustica Canteen, Marquis of Lorne, Short Straw and Homeslice Pizza). Ryan Lording is the head Chef as well as co owner prepared a wide range of healthy yet flavourful and some cheat dish as well such as the Oreo donut.

I went in with my mom and husband on a weekdays afternoon, to be seated indoor we have to wait around 30-40 minutes so we decided to sit outside instead since the weather was not too cold. Left field transformed from Indian restaurant into a modern cafe. The interior has a light brown wooden furnitures with a little bit of blue and white shade.

We started our lunch with Latte, Tonic Tea - ginger, pear,lime ($5) & Tumeric Elixir Herbal Tea - tumeric root, lemongrass, lemon myrtle, ginger, licorice ($4). The coffee has a good consistency and I appreciate they are serving healthy tea in the middle of winter. Since both me and my mom are not well I opted for the tonic tea and my mom opted for the tumeric, both taste nice and warm.

My mom opted for something a little bit more healthier. Smashed Peas Bruschetta w/ prosciutto, goats cheese, poached egg & pesto, zucchini, ribbon, walnut, mint and basil salad ($17.5). She said it needed a lil bit more seasoning even though the smashed peas was smooth, tasty and fresh. 

My husband is in the mood for something heavier so he ordered Slow Cooked Pulled Pork Shoulder Benedict w/ sourdough, poached eggs, apple cider hollandaise, pomegranate, apple and mint ($19.5). The egg was very well cooked with creamy hollandaise and tender pulled pork shoulder. Yum!

Smoked and Braised Short rib, fried egg, spicy black beans, feta, lime, coriander, beetroot hummus and Turkish bread ($19.5). The rib was very tender, fall off the bones with a nice seasoning and complementing the other ingredients on the plate. Love it.

Originally I wanted to order the Cookies and Cream Donut for desserts but we were too full for it but it given me the reason to come back. Their service was pretty fast but less attentive if you are seated outside and some of the staff was less friendly since they are busy. Left field definitely lift up to their hype and quickly become one of my favourite cafe in South Eastern Suburb.
