156 Enmore Road Enmore
We are wandering down Enmore Rd (prior to Jennifer Coolidge), looking for a bite to eat & perhaps a drink or two.
Thanks to a prior visit we now know that Pickwick's is out.
As we pass the myriad of Thai, Indian & Turkish restaurants we spot a sign that reads 'The Green Room Lounge'.
Intrigued we peer in, looking beyond the Twin Peaks-esque red curtains to spy a very funky, 1950's styled lounge/bar.
It is fairly early so there are only a few tables occupied, folks out for a pre dinner drink. We find a small table for two in a dark corner (doesn't make for great photos) & sink into the comfy, retro armchairs. We love it immediately.
Perusing the extensive drinks menu (local wines, boutique beers & ciders, cocktails), we order a carafe of Enmore Road Tea Punch ($25)...a wonderful concoction of Licor 43, rum, pink grapefriut & a spicy house made syrup. Refreshing & quite boozy.
The food menu pretty much consists of a cheese platter with accompaniments (you can choose between 1-3 cheeses) and a very interesting range of toasties.
We decide on a three cheese platter which tonight includes a Tarago River Blue, an Old Telegraph Road Triple Cream White brie and a Trinity Cellars Victorian Cheddar. Delicious.
Still feeling ever so slightly peckish, we share a prosciutto, mozzarella & fig jam toastie. This is very good & the fig jam is a great addition.
So all up we are pretty impressed with The Green Room Lounge & we look forward to visiting again very soon.
