First Impressions

The Wander with Wonder team recently popped over to our local location and tried some of the newest menu offerings!

We started with a couple of cool refreshing summertime cocktails. The Stubborn Melon, which is a mule crafted with Three Olives Vodka, Monin Watermelon syrup, Bundaberg Ginger beer and fresh lime juice. We also tasted the Berry Sparkarita which is a combination of 1800 Silver Tequila, Monin Blackberry syrup, fesh lime juice, and Lunetta Presecco creating an explosive margarita!

We also enjoyed the hummus trio. Baba Ganoosh, hummus and cool cucumber is never wrong! It is perfect for when your table can’t decide which to start with.

From the new seasonal menu we had the Spicy Mango Shrimp. Seven jumbo shrimp, caramelized and tantalizing slivered mango served on a bed a stir fried ginger rice. I enjoyed this dish because even with the spice it has sweet balance in the mango and the tanginess of the ginger rice is addictive.

We also tried the new Chicken Avocado Pita Tostada. This dish was cool and delicious with plenty of flavor with grilled chicken, avocado cilantro-avocado crema, tomatoes, cucumbers, pickled red onions, corn, bell peppers, black beans, black bean hummus, feta, pine nuts, baby arugula, pea sprouts, chipotle vinaigrette, honey, pita tostada!

We finished the meal with a Baklawa Trifle which is one scoop of each chocolate-pistachio, salted caramel gelati and raspberry sorbet topped with pieces of walnut baklawa and a fresh strawberry. This dessert is a perfect way to end a day and is big enough to share!
