Lunch @ Ricardo's Cafe

My friend Elizabeth and I have a lovely tradition of taking each other out for lunch on our birthdays. For Elizabeth's recent birthday she suggested we try Ricardo's Cafe at Jamison Plaza, Canberra. I was vaguely aware of Ricardo's as its high tea has been recommended on the wonderful Her Canberra blog, and Elizabeth was interested in trying the food there as she'd heard they have plenty of gluten free options. They certainly do! Lunch was a delight.

Elizabeth had:

Breakfast fritters: zucchini, corn and haloumi fritters with poached
eggs, beetroot hummus, harissa yoghurt, quinoa and roasted corn salsa

and a chai tea brewed with soy milk

while Karin had:

Pulled pork salad: pulled pork with pearl couscous,
mandarin, rocket, feta, almonds and mint with harissa yoghurt

and a flat white

We were absolutely stuffed. (That's not a complaint, just an observation!) While we'd planned to have dessert too  they have some magnificent looking cakes  neither of us could eat a morsel more. So Elizabeth picked up a couple of cakes to take home:

All in all, a fabulous meal. We'll have to return for the high tea someday ...
