Lolo & Wren, Brunswick West
My first day back in Melbourne after Christmas saw me checking out Lolo & Wren. It was worth the three tram changes with food that was big, delicious and satisfying. The menu offering is varied and there are plenty of creative choices to dutifully calm your appetite, and your breakfast requirements. I went with the Pig Boss ($17.50), which was a pork shoulder stuffed roll with slaw, crackling, peanuts, herbs and mayo. As well as their sheer enormity of the size, it was balanced with successful flavours and a refreshing Asian influence. The pork shoulder was wonderfully tender and it made a visual and gastronomic delight to ingest. So yeah, Lolo & Wren is definitely worth checking out.
My friend Beau went with one of the burgers.
And we shared some of EJ’s highly recommended Patatas brasvs ($9.5) which are super tasty fried potato segments with sour cream and a sweet relish type sauce. Like nachos, but with potato. Good!
