Last weekend I had heard that Locale, a new pizza place, was opening at the Deakin shops.
We thought it would be a great lunch option, only to discover upon arrival that Locale is only open for dinner. I knew I should have checked out the Facebook page before making the trip in, but will definitely be heading back to check it out for dinner as soon as possible.
Starving, I remembered that Double Shot is also at the Deakin shops. It’s an old favourite and a regular hang out for many of my friends. It was busier than what I expected for a Saturday afternoon, but we were able to find a seat without to much difficulty.
I narrowed my options down to a big bowl of spaghetti, or the pulled lamb souva and decided to ask the waitress for her opinion. She was quick to recommend the souva (slow cooked lamb shoulder with Shepards salad, spiced tahini + tzatziki in a grilled pitta with lemon salted fries, $19).
Mike ordered the eggs benedict (free range eggs, choice of bacon, salmon, baby spinach or gypsy ham, topped with Hollandaise sauce, $18).
It could have been the hangover, but I’m pretty sure the coffee was delicious!
Our meals came out quite fast and I consumed the entire thing, not even stopping to take a breath. Greek food is just the best! Who ever thought of wrapping chips up in a sandwich is a genius!
Mike’s eggs benny was a little smaller than he would have liked but at the end of the meal he actually admitted it was the perfect size. He ended up really liking it and said that it actually tasted healthy … maybe Double Shot make a healthier version of benedict sauce? Is that even possible?
I really really enjoyed Double Shot; the menu has so much variety, with something for everyone. It really is the perfect weekend meeting place!
Double Shot is located at the Deakin shops, 7/18 Duff Place Deakin and is open 7am to 5pm, Monday to Friday and 7:30am to 4pm, Saturday and Sunday.
