And now we come to the final post in my series on Canberra! As you may have gathered, all our previous eating destinations were chosen by our gracious host An. Urban Pantry, on the other hand, was one that I really wanted to visit, having read about it both here and here before our trip. It was super crowded when we arrived at 2pm on a Sunday afternoon, and we had to wait around 20 minutes for a table, which gave us some time to check out the surrounding shops. The whole Manuka area seems to have changed a lot since our last visit in 2009, with many more trendy cafes and bars popping up in the meantime.
|Mango Magic - mango, pineapple & nectar blended w/ ice topped w/ coconut cream - $8.80|
I was still full from my massive breakfast, and couldn't even contemplate eating a full meal. Instead, I chose a little almond and honey slice from the cake cabinet.
|Honey & Almond Slice - $6.05|
|Wagyu beef burger w/ spiced tomato relish, cheddar,onion rings & salad greens served w/ fries - $20.90|
|Thyme scented mushroom bruschetta topped w/ Persian fetta - $20.90|
I liked Urban Pantry, but I would have been better off coming with a bigger appetite - poor planning on my part! I'd love to visit for dinner and also try some of their desserts! I must say that it is very expensive though, even without the Sunday surcharge (see the Breakfast/Lunch and Dinner menus here), so it isn't one that I'd visit more than occasionally.
And that's my last post about my trip to Canberra! Thank-you Canberra, it's been grand!
