Our lunch rendezvous took us to Flour Drum Newton located along King St, thanks to the $50 Voucher from FCBA community.

Flour Drum Newtown is a chic cafe serving all day breakfast, brunch, lunch and those late pick me up afternoon delights. It has an outside seating area and the cosy vibe continues throughout the front and back dining areas with a rustic charm and a relaxed atmosphere. Some walls are dedicated as an exhibition space for local artists and all artwork is available for purchase. But wait till you see the 12 metre stunning mural in the main dining area, it’s quite a statement!

Chicken Tenderloin Burger

My taste buds were tingling with excitement when my grilled chicken tenderloin burger arrive. Fused with Indian spices, topped with avocado, iceberg lettuce, spring onion, dripping chipotle mayo and beautifully presented between two soft and fluffy buns. The chips that came with the dish are crisp and golden on the outside, soft and fluffy on the inside. If you are into a bold and juicy chicken burger and best chips, this is for you.

House-made Pappardelle Pasta

Steve’s order was the house-made Pappardelle Pasta with an 8-hour slow braised lamb shank ragu. As we always do, we share whatever we order so we can compare notes. The marriage of the flat pasta and lamb shank ragu is a knock out, it’s lush, silky and packed full of flavour, the chilli infused olive oil added zing to the palate. For serious pasta lovers, this one is with a high note.
