The Creative couple were in town and we decided to take them to Herd Bar & Cafe for lunch. We made a booking on a Sunday but it wasn’t really busy at all so we didn’t really need to make a booking. Nonetheless, we went inside and the staff were super duper friendly and the decor was just suave and very intimate. We were shown to our table and my gosh the options looked oh so delish.
Mrs Creative got the Lamb sausage and they smelt AWESOME SAUCE! The sausage had so much flavour and was very juicy and the yoghurt balanced out the sausages very well. Side note though, this dish is quite small and was more like an entree.
Turkish Lamb Sausage – $18
Sumac onion, tomato, peppers, yoghurt
Mr Creative got the Grass Fed Skirt Steak and was quite disappointed with it. it was quite salty and the steak was a touch tough.
Grass Fed Skirt Steak (300gm) – $30
Parsley, red onion, capers, mustard, fries
Mr D got the Wagyu Beef Burger and boy oh boy was it AWESOME! The beef patty was juicy and oozing with flavour and everything went so well together. The only complaint from Mr D? It was a touch too small.
Wagyu Beef Burger -$20
Lettuce, onion, cheese, pickles, mustard, BBQ sauce, fries
I got the Lamb Sis kebab and it was surprisingly healthy and light. The flavours were subtle and I did not feel heavy after eating it. It was not oily nor stuffed so full that bits and pieces were flowing out. It was quite perfect. For those who can’t stand the lamb smell, THERE IS NO LAMB SMELL AND IT WAS AMAZEBALLS!
Lamb Sis Kebab – $18
Harissa, lettuce, herbs, onion, yoghurt, fries
For dessert we got the Turkish Delight Doughnuts to share and they were not as sweet as I thought they would be. There was a hint of Turkish delight and the doughnuts themselves were light and fluffy.
Turkish Delight Doughnuts – $14
Malt crumble, buttermilk ice cream
Herd is a great place if you want to stop by for some wine or food. The staff and service were amazing, the decor reminded me of a jazz bar and it’s close to all the wineries. I’ll definitely be back to check out the rest of the desserts!!
