Now I have to say right from the get go, we went to The Florence specifically to road test their lunch specials.
Their “full menu” is modern and certainly intriguing, I particularly like the sound of the Moreton Bay Bug tail Bao, yum! But that will have to wait for another time today we have lunch specials on our radar.
And we did find the lunch specials menu impressive actually, with seafood options like Stone & Wood Battered Barra and chips or King Prawn Spaghetti with garlic, chilli & tomato both priced at $19. They have a couple of nice salads – Blue Cheese & Sweet Potato or Wild Rocket and Parmesan for $14 or there’s the pub grub fave a chicken parmi for $15.
Today my guest chose the Diner Burger $15. A nice quality beef patty (I am really fussy about these and according to my guest this one was good, phew!) add the standard pickles, fried onions, mustard & ketchup and it made for a nice juicy burger. The soft brioche bun was a standout and the fries plentiful and tasty, we decided good value all round for $15.
For me it was the 200g rump with house slaw and fries and I was really happy with my choice. Tender Black Angus beef with a nice hit of chargrill flavour, I couldn’t fault it. The slaw was crisp and fresh and the shoestring fries, again crispy & plentiful. This dish comes with a complimentary sauce of mushroom, red wine jus or pepper.
The beverage list is impressive to say the least with quality Australian and NZ wines featured by the glass as well as some nice selections from Italy and France. We LOVE ! We chose a French Rose’ “Artea” to have with our meals (an interesting pairing I know with burgers and steak) but it was exquisite $11 / glass.
We’ll be back to try the full menu soon…well done team The Florence, we like your style.
