This is just a quick Dimitri’s Feast update – the Coquettish Dr K, Rambunctuous R and I (Heavenly Helen) were having a well overdue girly catch up. Mesmerised by my stories of the semolina pancakes – Dr K was insistent on heading to Dimitri’s Feast. So it was, on a sweltering Saturday morning that we convened.
Here they are in all their wondrous goodness – still the best pancakes in Melbourne IMHO! It was enough for Dr K to stop and look at me and say: Oh my goodness. They are divine! Gorgeously moist, with an aerated texture, scattered with pistachios and rose petals, topped with yoghurt and complemented by the orange blossom syrup – I can’t find any better.
I do love zucchini fritters – so I was pleased when rambunctuous R ordered them – as I knew I would be able to wangle a taste. And they were beautiful, gorgeous shreds of grated zucchini in a moist friter, pan fried to a bronzed finish and beautifully complemented by roasted truss tomatoes and a poached egg. Lovely!
Dimitri’s Feast never fails to impress – and I think the Coquettish Dr K understands what all the raving was about now. All good!!
