We were stoke to be invited to Tavolo's Launch Party last Saturday. Located at the Reading Cinema Complex, Tavolo is owned by the gorgeous Jess and her hubby Mario, is the newest addition to Belmont's Food Scene.

Tavolo's interior was huge with indoor / outdoor seating and they are also a dog-friendly restaurant (outdoor only), if you wish to dine out with your fur babies! 

On arrival, we received a glass of sparkling wine each. I also got to meet Jess, co-owner of Tavolo and all the lovely and attentive staff at the event.

The food came out soon after and there were so many round of food circulating throughout the night. We were spoilt rotten thanks to the generosity of the owners ❤
Above are highlights of some of the tastings we had on the night, but my favourites were the arancini balls; they were not only nice, crunchy but also oozing with mozzarella cheese on each bite ❤ Yum!

I also love the simplicity of the Aglio E Olio pizza w/ extra virgin olive oil, garlic, rosemary and sea salt beside all the other glamorous pizzas such as the Tartufata w/ truffle cream.

My other two favourites were the beef and roast pork, although I don't think these are available on the menu however 😐

Overall we had a great night celebrating the launch with the owners, their staff and fellow foodie bloggers. Thank you so much for the great hospitality Tavolo, I can't wait to return and sampling the other items on your menu soon.

Harvest Espresso

So I've been eyeing this particular dish from Harvest Espresso the last few days, after they updated their Winter Menu; and since Harvest Espresso was on my "wish list" for months, I couldn't resisted the wait any longer and dragged Kim, one of my gal pal out to lunch with me!

We started off with coffees (because I hasn't had any that morning!). I ordered my usual Skinny Flat White and Kim ordered the Matcha Latté with a shot of espresso on the side.

For lunch, Kim ordered the Cured Kingfish with Lime & Mascarpone Cream, Baby Beetroot, Baby Tomatoes, Mustard Soy Cider Vinaigrette, Capers, Egg Wedges and Lavosh.
Kim's dish looked "way too pretty to eat" (but she ate it all of course) fondly

I, of course, ordered the Doughnuts which served with Fois Fras Ganache, Fairy Floss and Seasonal Berries.
My dish was as delicious as it looked and was worthy of however long I was stalking Harvest Espresso's posts on Instagram for!

 Harvest Espresso's new menu and can't wait to come back to try the other items on their menu!
