same same.but different
Some months ago, Ladro of Gertrude St (Fitzroy) opened its ovens of love to its second home on Greville St (Prahran). Two weeks after its door-opening date, I entered. Five or so months down the track, I should be earning commission. I'm a sucker for its aesthetic appeal and the little details from toilet roll holder to light fittings - the food aint so bad either! So good, in fact, that you Must book as you'll soon find out their waiting list becomes a booking frenzy.
Some of my favourite noshings:
To start: Fried anchovies (if you like these fuzzy friends), selection of cured meats (see our snap shots from recent lunch), and don't pass on the freshly baked bread!
Filling up: Think Ladro, Think Pizza! Do order one. Yes, the novelty of DIY pizza cutting can wear thin, but their oven baked base is top notch. A little pesce set my tune to 'satisfaction' too.
Sipping up: No expert on the imported grape, I faithfully abide by whatever is recommended by the army of red-shirted wait staff. So far so good.
Ending on a high: say si to the bomboloni. Fried dough-ball babies with homemade ice cream. What calories?
