How to find this place is need to know… and you need to know about this place!!!We stumbled upon Stable Hands by accident, taking an unexpected turn down Bannister Street we found ourselves passing the inviting open door.
The interior is industrial chic with white washed walls, polished concrete floors and black lacquer highlights. We sat at a table in the upstairs loft and took a moment to peruse their summer menu, the food it had everything from your basic eggs on toast and bircher museli to the more decadent benedict waffle and coconut pikelets. Whilst discussing our options we imbibed in a pair of coffees, a latte and a cold press coffee. The coffee was delicious, a smooth roast with a great depth of flavour that had been expertly brewed. The cold press was served over ice and had no bitterness but a nice kick.
After a brief moment of caffeinated bliss we got back to the menu, there were so many choices. We finally settled on a serve of the Silver Beat and Feta Fritters and a serve of the Cured Ocean Trout.
I’ll start with the fritters – they were out of this world! The eggs were creamy and cooked to perfection, not overworked and still moist. The fritters were crispy and added a fantastic texture to dish. The chilli and corn textures added another level bringing the whole dish together. This plate of food was rich and decadent yet still balanced.
The cured ocean trout was next level, the trout had been cured beautifully giving it a wonderful depth of flavour. The ripples of fat through the meat created a tantalising mouth feel. The poached egg was just cooked with a gooey centre, which when pieced allowed the yolk to ooze out and meld with the humus. This combination when paired with the trout, bitter greens and pear created the ultimate mouthful.
