Queen’s Birthday public holiday is officially done and over. Just one more public holiday left (Labour Day) to go this year before Christmas rears its festive head around! Meanwhile, before then, why not treat yourself to a cheeky express work day lunch at Coal Cellar + Grill for only $25 which includes a choice of main (which changes every fortnight), a glass of house wine, beer or soft drink and a coffee!

We were treated to experience their express lunch a few weeks back at the newly revamped Hilton Adelaide and whilst it is an ‘express’ lunch, we stayed a little bit longer and got to sample their new dessert menu too!

Lime curd and strawberry jelly: short crust crumbs and peppered meringue

What a beaut! Super vibrant, visually beautiful, texturally fun and super tasty too. The favourite from the lot we tried. The lime curd and strawberry jelly was firm yet soft at the same time, kind of like something in between a panna cotta and a hard set jelly, tart yet subtly sweet with savoury-esque crumbs and a peppery crispy sweet meringue. Mmm~
