Oven cafe, Parraween St, Cremorne

Oven cafe, Parraween St, Cremorne
Friday 7 September, 2007

On this APEC Public Holiday we decided to enjoy a movie marathon at the Cremorne Orpheum - 'Forbidden Lies', '4' and 'After the Wedding'. In between films we ducked out for coffee and then again for a late lunch at Oven.

Located in a quiet backstreet behind the hustle & bustle of Military Road, Oven is a little gem. It's cramped, especially when the locals come in for takeaway coffees however if you arrive on a quiet day, like today, it's a cosy, welcoming space. The staff are friendly and try not to make a big deal of squeezing past you every 2 mins to get in and out of the kitchen.

My movie buddy and I needed a quick bite with the emphasis on quick. Viewing the lean lunch menu I opted for the Lamb and sumac panini with garlic yoghurt and my movie buddy chose the Italian sausages on a bed of mash. I had absolutely no idea what sumac was but it was described to me as a spice - dark burgundy in colour, sumac has a tart, sour lemon taste.

Our meals were delivered promptly and were fabulous. My panini with bursting with tender lamb strips and generously coated in garlic yoghurt - it was perfectly prepared. My movie buddy's meal was equally as tempting - two large gourmet sausages sat on a generous pile of creamy mash.

As time was of the essence there wasn't much talking as we devoured our meals. We were impressed.
