The menu is understated, simple and casual - just like the venue itself and the overall dining experience. If you are feeling like something light to start the day you can’t go past the watermelon with mint (one of my favourite combinations) with crushed almonds, all toppled onto a generous dollop of vanilla bean yoghurt. For those pigs who are feeling a bit more peckish, it is imperative you try the ham sandwich. I may be bias to ham because it the best thing since sliced ham, but the sandwich is sensational. Lashings of ham are busting out of the sourdough bread, which is subtly swiped with hot mustard and bound together with a slice of melted Gruyere cheese and accompanied with a side of scrumptious sautéed onions.
Once you have finished your meal you can pick up some groceries from the perfectly presented shelves stacked with delicious deli food, the vibrant, fresh produce and the cold room bursting with beautiful cheeses and meats.
It is no surprise that Sourced Grocer does a roaring trade, especially on weekends with coffee lovers, cyclists and fashionable folk all making a pit stop to refuel and have fun. You can pull up a milk crate or a sit on the foot path and sun yourself while you feast, but be prepared to wait if you’re in a large group.
The bitter: milk crates are great in theory but not very comfortable The sweet: ham off the bone sandwich is always a winner, oink oink! The damage: not bad – meal and a coffee will coast you between $15-$20 big ones.
Oink oink, Truffle Pig.
