Every year Dimmi has a special restaurant promotion in July where certain restaurants are 30-50% off! I had to take advantage of this and decided to try SaltVine for my birthday. I don’t usually eat a lot of Lebanese food so I was excited to try something different. SaltVine is located in Surry Hills and they serve tapas style dishes. Sorry some of the photos are a bit out of focus.
I had orgininally planned on visiting Haezuk, a pirate themed Korean Japanese fusion restaurant but it turns out they were closed for renovations even though it seemed like they had opened recently. Anyway, Stepho’s was conveniently located around the corner and there wasn’t much of a line up for lunch so we went there instead.
We decided to all share a Calamarias an appetizer. It was presented with a small size of Greek salad, banana pepper and a lemon wedge. The appetizer portion wasn’t that big compared to the entrees. For another extra $3, you can get the rice, Greek salad, potatoes and a larger portion of calamari for the entree version. Taste wise it was not bad.
This was the Small Lamb Souvlaki platter. A small just means you get one skewer while a large means you get two. It came with the usual rice pilaf, roasted potatoes and Greek salad. My co worker seemed satisfied with everything. My other co worker also ordered this and she got a piece of pita bread to go with it but that was after all our food arrived and hers didn’t…
