Review: The Grounds of Alexandria

We made our way to The Grounds a couple of weeks ago. I have heard so much hype for this hidden gem and I must say, it's well deserved.

The place was packed, even on a rainy day!

As you make your way inside, you'll see an indoor restaurant  and a courtyard where you can order your food and dine alfresco style. The restaurant was overly crowded so we picked the courtyard.

You'd order and pay at one side of the courtyard, then pick up from the other side. I'd suggest you to take a brisk walk around the place prior to ordering.

Yes! They tempt you with delicious baked goods at the ordering counter!!

Smashed Avocado $9

Tomato, feta, chilli & mint on sourdough

This was our healthy alternative. You'd get to sauce your meal at the pickup counter. I have no idea which sauce we poured on but it was tasty! With the combination of avocado, feta and tomato, as you would expect, the texture was a little mushy. I think this could do with more chilli.... nice... but not enough flavour for me. Maybe I'll put more sauce on next time.

My boyfriend got the drink on the left... I'm not sure what it's called .. but it was quite sour
I had the Coconut Kale to you right, it's a mixture of coconut juice, kale, almond, banana and berries. You can really taste the banana and berries.... and unfortunately the seeds from the berries as well. I couldn't really taste the coconut juice. Nonetheless, it was quite nice.

Beer Battered Chips $5

Tip top chips with a crunch! Loved it!

Field Mushroom Roll $10
Rocket mizuna tomato and feta

This was a surprise winner.  Lots of flavour from the rocket, a great combination overall. Lots of oil. I'd probably recommend the smash avocado for all my health conscious friends out there. This would be highly recommended for all the oil and flavour lovers.

I wanted dessert/pastries afterwards, but we got really full, really quickly.
Below are some pictures we took as we walked around. They had a little area where they kept Kevin Bacon and co. We will be getting their lemonade next time!

A great variety at The Grounds, the atmosphere was casual and enjoyable. This is great place to chill with your friends and family. The Grounds has so much to offer, it's a place where you'll just have to go back for a second bite!

We definitely will be making our way back soon!
