Lunch at the Carillon Food Hall

On the Saturday Jac and I went into the city to find me a wedding outfit (we’d found Jac’s dress in a boutique in Mount Lawley earlier that week), we had lunch in the Carillon Food Hall.

While Jac looked for a sandwich or salad, I had two cravings to satisfy. First, a craving for something small and deep-fried. This curry puff did the trick, even though the filling was somewhat disappointing (a little dry).

My second and main craving was for a big bowl of noodle soup. This chicken noodle soup was exactly what I needed – thick egg noodles with pieces of succulent chicken thigh meat, bean sprouts and choy sum (Chinese green vegetable), in a delicious clear broth topped with chopped fresh spring onion.

The black stuff you can see in the soup is the fried shallots – somewhat overfried, or fried in very dirty oil – surprisingly tasty for something resembling oil slick babies! But I was very excited about the little cubes of fried pork fat. Crispy, golden, melt-in-the-mouth morsels of porky fat. I savoured the flavour of every one of these.

Jac had a much healthier meal – a turkey, cheese and salad wrap from Muffin Break.

I think the wrap wasn’t that satisfying, though – Jac kept drinking my delicious soup, and when she’d had enough savoury food, she went back to Muffin Break and bought an apple crumble slice to have for her dessert.
