Ambrosia Food For Gods, Mitcham by Obelix

I was dragged into Ambrosia with the charming by-line of 'Food For Gods' by Kiddo who spied a casserole of lima beans by the window. A strange food obsession for a kid but I guess slow cooked beans have rustic appeal. I allowed myself to be dragged as I fancied myself as a Greek demi-God *wink*

slow cooked lima beans
After convincing Kiddo that to eat a bowl of beans on its own is a bit unusual and that we needed some other supplementation, we agreed to a mezze plate for two to go with.

The mezze plate was perfect to go with the beans as it came with a bowl of hot, crunchy bread drizzled with olive oil to mop up the lima bean sauce.

The mezze included spicy Greek sausage and two beef koftas.

The feta was lovely and crumbly and worked well with the other pickings of olives, grilled capsicum and unusually enough canned beetroot.

The lima beans were just as Kiddo expected. Comforting with loads of fresh herbs.

Verdict

We liked it

Overall

Ambrosia is lovely cafe doing a Greek twist on the usual cafe offerings. Service was friendly and prompt. Lovely al fresco area at the front.

I think kiddo and I are siblings from another mother! I too love slow cooked beans, lentils etc, and don't find it weird to eat on their own. Wanna swap kids��?
