Weekend bites: Butter Fingers and Peel Street

Butter Fingers

Quick weekend bites at Butter Fingers for lunch. A small business on the corner lot of shops on Melbourne Street in between Chocolate Taperia and Cibo serving breakfast and lunch.

Butter Fingers
Soy latte with almond milk and macchiato

Many options available like the usual of bacon and eggs, either on their own with bread or with the bells and whistles (The Biggy), muesli, fruit salad, baguettes/sandwiches, pies, pasties and sausage rolls, hot dogs, hamburgers and cakes and cookies. Their drinks menu is extensive too with the likes of juices, smoothies, milk shakes, iced drinks, tea and of course, coffee! All their tasty goodies are made from scratch with the freshest produce sourced from local SA producers.

Butter Fingers
Spanish hot dog: Marino pork sausage with caramelised onions, manchego cheese and Cholula sauce; $12.00
Wedges: hand cut with tomato salt; $5.00
The Biggy: bacon, Marino sausage, fried eggs, magic mushrooms, tomato, house made bread; $15.00

The peeps I went with on my visit ordered the food whilst I stuck with my coffee and stole a few wedges – and good wedges they were. Feedback from my fellow diners was that their food was okay, but nothing spectacular.

Have you guys been here yet? Any recommendations?

Peel St

Ever since we got our taste buds blown at Peel St, we’ve been back another two times – well… I’ve been back two times, the stranger once. Both times were just as good as the first although nothing really beats the first time you have an epic meal… right?

Peel St
Hendrick’s G&T, there’s a cucumber in my drink~

Peel St
Sumac and lime crusted tuna, tahini, pomegranate molasses and pine nuts; $23.50

Fresh and lightly seared tuna with a herby tangy crust, zingy tahini sauce, vibrant juicy sweet bursts of pomegranate and crunch from the pine nuts. The addition of wedged cherry tomatoes were delightfully light and refreshing too. Delish, a colourful and tasty dish.

Peel St
Vietnamese grilled beef with vinegar onions, chilli jam dressing; $34.00

We ordered this again, although we thought it was a bit ‘overdone’ this time around. The flavours were zippy and zappy, a very satisfying meal.

Peel St
Armenian lamb soldiers with tomato and pomegranate salsa, garlic yoghurt and fried almonds; $22.50

A huge mound of textural deliciousness covered thick fluffy slices of bread. Yummyyyy~

Their menu has more or less stayed the same over the last few months with a few new additions. I’m keen to see another beef style dish to try out, hopefully soon rather than later.
