Builders Arms Hotel

Entertainment & Leisure, The Dressing Room

A recent visit to the Builders Arms Hotel on Gertrude Street Fitzroy had us running to our keyboard to share this place with you!

fvLE8lkhEjdMfAThink casual and homely, yet stylish. We LOVED the vibe we got as soon as we walked in, it was warm and welcoming.

The tricky part was deciding what to order, wanting to order everything!!! Over all everything we did try was satisfying,

I would easily order it all again! Portion sizes for individual and share plates were all reasonable (didn’t leave hungry).

What we recommend to try:

  • Crispy pork and school prawns
  • Chickpea salad, marinated carrot, green chilli and shanklish
  • Red duck curry
  • Peppered Fillet steak, potato puree
  • Roasted potatoes, garlic
  • House chips

Potatoes_LR Tulip-Shadow_LR1One of the master chefs behind the dishes at the Builders Arms Hotel is Andrew Mc Connell. He  has also managed to impress us on a visit to Golden Fields (another great place we recommend) where he also is to credit for the amazing dishes there. Other restaurants he is linked to that you may have heard of include Cumulus Inc and Cutler & Co.  Everything he touches turns to gold 😉

Taste Bud Pleasures

Home, Food & Body, The Dressing Room

One of our guilty winter pleasures is banana bread. In saying that, you could imagine how excited we were when we came across this EASY, low fat recipe – WINNING!

Banana and walnut bread

17818_l

INGREDIENTS:

  • 300g (2 cups) self-raising flour
  • 70g (1/3 cup, firmly packed) brown sugar
  • 100g walnuts, coarsely chopped
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 2 eggs, lightly whisked
  • 250ml (1 cup) milk
  • 1 cup (about 2 large) mashed banana

METHOD:

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Line the base and sides of a 6cm-deep, 20 x 10cm loaf pan with non-stick baking paper.
  2. Sift the flour into a large bowl. Add the sugar, walnuts and bicarbonate of soda, and stir to combine.
  3. Add the egg, milk and banana, and gently fold until well combined. Spoon the mixture into the lined pan. Bake in oven for 45 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Set aside to cool completely. Cut into slices to serve.

ENJOY!

Brother Burger

Entertainment & Leisure, Home, Food & Body, The Dressing Room

We were told about this place by a friend and had to share (we’re still yet to try but heard it’s a must)!

Don’t be mislead, this isn’t your average burger joint! Anything but average with their 100% Wagyu beef patties and the large selection of Australian, independent craft beers on tap. You can order take away but it is said that you must dine in to get the full experience.
