TUESDAY 11TH NOVEMBER 2014

 

Parlour Diner, is another addition to the now trendy end of Chapel Street, Windsor. Its a small intimate space which makes use of the recycled furniture hipster look. The kitchen is small and out in the open and they must be doing something right, because on a Tuesday night when few people were around Chapel Street, it was bustling.

 

SIDES

 

#4 – Chilli buffalo wings

A sign that you’ve spent too much time in America is that you start to crave buffalo wings! They are a staple over there and something that isn’t so easy to come by in Australia. So I was very excited to try the wings! Elaine thought they were fabulous, I agree with her the crispy, spicy batter was super tasty, however I was disappointed they weren’t traditional buffalo wings, there was no dipping sauce and they were far too large.

BURGERS, DOGS

 

#7 – Original Dog, smoked boerewurst, sweet onion, mustard, tomato sauce and cheese

This was Elaine’s idea of a good hotdog, she liked the toasted bread, the traditional cheese, tomato sauce (or red sauce in Ireland) and mustard.  I found the toasted bread made it harder to eat but I am not a hotdog lover so if you do like yourself a good hotdog, do not take this as gospel, you’ll probably love these!

This isn’t a burger we would both normally order, however we were very pleasantly surprised. The combination of fresh herbs and slaw was crisp and flavoursome. They have definitely created a yummy, unique burger.

The curly fries were crispy and dusted in a delicious spice with a unique dipping sauce, not sure about you, but to us that is pretty close to the perfect hot chip.

The onion rings were again served dusted in the tasty spice with the delicious dipping sauce, however there was just too much batter on them, someone was a little heavy handed.

At Parlour Diner there is no doubt they have created a funky little place with a great atmosphere. They are channeling the American vibe so the meals are quite large which does mean good value for money.

We certainly didn’t leave feeling hungry! Definitely a great place for mates with big appetites to catch up over a burger or hotdog!
