Food Wine Friends, Bright

This "Foodies BLT" left a bitter taste in my mouth, literally. It was a classic case of fancy ingredients and "gourmet" food done badly. Excellent Milawa sourdough, but such fat slices that they totally overpowered the filling, and barely toasted to boot. It was as if the bread had been waved in front of the grill just long enough to dry the surface. And on the inside? Some limp bacon (the menu said "crispy"), cos lettuce, thin-sliced tomato (the menu said "thick-sliced"), and the bitter residue of something called avocado and almond pesto. Welcome to food wine friends, 2/6 Ireland Street, Bright, Tel +61 3 5750 1312.


On a brighter note, FWF serves excellent Jaspers coffee, and an impressive range of bruschetta, which is probably a better way to use the Milawa sourdough. The "Breakfast Bruschetta", for example, is a thick slice of fruit toast topped with bacon and Milawa blue cheese.

But no eggs, unless you count quiche.

In short, FWF is a great place for coffee and maybe lunch. If you happen to be in Bright.

[no eggs, no score]

As the new owner of this business (since dec'10)
I would appreciate the opportunity to provide you
with a better experience than you have had
previously. 2006 was a long time ago and I think
you need to visit our store again, as a lot has
changed and you really should maintain up
to date information and reviews if you are going
to bother continuing your blog.
