Thursday dawned and about mid morning I received a text from Jenny who had stayed with us the previous week before she headed to Tasmania. Turns out she's back for an evening and wondered if we wanted to join her and some of her friends for dinner. Knowing we had cleaning commitments(!) I thought it wise to consult Steve before accepting. I received a rapid response from Steve with a keen acceptance! So much for mid weekcleaning!
Anyway dinner was to be at Little Creatures in Fitzroy. Little Creatures is a Perth based brewery so I suspected I'd be driving back! We found the place quite easily and parked up. Based in a large, spacious building it does that Melburnian industrial-shabby-chic thing quite well. The waiters were friendly and we were shown to a big booth where we waited for the others. We were joined by lots of people all arriving at different times and the wait staff were very patient and coped well with our ever increasing crowd and even a shift from the booth to a larger table.
The menu at Little Creatures consists of tapas style dishes, pizzas and main courses. After the nibbles, people opted for pizzas or individual main courses. Steve had a chorizo, corn and feta pizza which he says was average. I guess we're getting spoilt with all the good food around and perhaps Little Creatures is better at brewing beer than baking pizza dough. I had a steak with bearnaise sauce with chips and found it pretty good. I asked for some aioli for the chips and that was creamy and tangy and light - gorgeous. Jenny ordered the lamb shank and there appeared to be no complaints there.
Little Creatures is a comfortable place to while away some time drinking beer. It's better at beer than food but stil definitely worth going.
