I've taken quite a fancy to High Street, Ashburton. It's a lovely mix of cafes, lifestyle shops and food stores with a friendly, unpretentious neighbourhood vibe. Two Seeds is one of the more newer cafes that have set up shop. We went there for Mr Strong's birthday and just loved the food that was served. It's cafe-style food with a semi Asian-fusion twist to it. The result is just simply delicious grub! With the Entertainment Book dining offer, we got up to $30 off our bill (click on these links to find out how we're raising money for FareShare by asking our Aussie readers to buy a copy of the 2016-17 Entertainment Book).
Mother Hen chose this absolutely delish fusion lemongrass pork dish. With Vietnamese-inspired flavours, the pan-fried pork pieces were tender and loaded with aromatic lemongrass. As Mother Hen and I consider that pork should always have some fat, this dish had a very nice balance of meat and juicy fattiness to it - perfect! It was served with a lovely fried egg, with the golden yolk oozing over the mound of rice. I couldn't help but sneak a few forkfuls off her plate!
