Ladies Lunch Platter @ The Stoned Crow (platter for 4 people)
It had been a while since I had last caught up with the lovely Grace and seeing as she had just come back from her exchange trip to China, a group girly catch-up session was much needed! Having been to the other small bar establishments under the Lil Darlin’ group, I knew The Stoned Crow - Crows Nest, would not disappoint. Beautifully decked-out interior with an enchanted garden ambience but still very casual. Shortly after sitting down, the locals started filling the place up. Great place for a drink - has a Surry Hill vibe.

Salt & Pepper Calamari w/ nahm jim & aioli
Crispy Chicken Drummers w/ chipotle mayo & chili sauce
Golden and flavoursome bites of tender calarmari dipped in creamy aioli and a lighter alternative with the sour tangy nahm jim sauce were gone in seconds. And the crispy chicken got nods of approval.

Selection of Dips w/ celery & carrot sticks
Selection of Local & International Cheese w/ quince paste
Proscuitto
Marinated Olives
Smoked Trout
Caprese Salad

Veg sticks, dips, cheese and olives - a combination I always plate up when I have girlfriends over, very appropriate for a girly catch-up :) Though the carrot and celery sticks were sliced a little skinny which was a  bit of a conundrum in picking up the hommus and beetroot dip (loved this!).

Crispy Peking Duck Pizza - Hoisin sauce, shallots, cucumber, coriander, finished with an orange, star anise & cinnamon glaze
BEST pizza combination ever!! This is a must try! Not sure if it’s on their regular menu, if not, the ladies lunch platter is well worth it :D good balance of flavours, just like Peking duck pancakes but on a crispy base.  Real winner!
Chorizo quesadilla
Classic Tex Mex, cheesy toasted tortillas sandwiching tomato and chorizo pieces.
Toasted Ciabatta
Char-gilled slices of ciabatta drizzled in olive oil.
Smoked Trout & Dill Pizza - mascarpone, watercress, capers and dill crème fraîche
Delicate smokey slices of trout encasing a creamy filling :) really enjoyed this with the spritz of lemon juice.

Oven Baked Brownie Swirls - Belgian chocolate & an ice-cream scoop
A mountain of warm little bite-sized pocket rolls filled with gooey chocolate served on a wooden board. A sublime way to end our lazy Sunday feast that I’m happy to say I would be back for :)
