Gusto on Hutt
I hadn't noticed this place before. The decor is to an unusually high spec for Adelaide. I'm reclining on a faux crocodile skin bench
The menu is in pristine condition, which indicates that the place is very new. Turns out it's just over three weeks old.
I place my umbrella next to my seat, so I won't forget it. It's very easy to leave umbrellas behind.
Char grilled milk fed baby veal rolled with semi dried tomatoes, roasted capsicums, baby spinach & basil pesto served with a Mediterranean vegetable stack & onion jus.
The meat itself is passable - nothing amazing, and slightly chewy, but it's surrounded by flavourful tomato, onion, and the amazing mashed potato.
Two selections of creamy chocolate mousse.
The layers of mousse are almost like a set custard, rather than being a mousse. This isn't necessarily bad, however.
The two layers of mousse don't really have strong tastes. The lower, chocolate layer, has a bit of a chocolate taste. The crunchy crumble bits end up being the dominant components here.
As I leave, the waitress runs out to me. I had forgotten my umbrella. :]
