Mt Eden Village has been graced with so many new openings the past few months, including this new number – Scarlett Slimms & Lucky. Scarlett is a gastropub replacing Eden Cloakroom. It’s rather smoky inside so the courtyard is the better option. We had the calamari with chorizo and papaya ($14). It was delicious, refreshing and full of flavour. The battered snapper with soft shell crab and shoestring fries ($28) were surprisingly well done too. The green pea tartare was on point, not too heavy nor too sour. We didn’t enjoy the mushroom risotto ($23), the radicchio (a type of white veined red leaf vegetable) was too bitter for us.
We missed the breakfast menu i.e. Whitebait omelettes with hash browns and creamed spinach, but we’ll make it next time – weekend sleep-ins are overrated anyway.
