Firedoor. The story with Firedoor is that when it opened, I added it to my list. Communal tables, cooking with fire, what more could you want? But then it never really made the top of the list for some reason. A year or so later, I got linked an article which claimed Firedoor has one of the world’s best steaks and was expensive, and aged in its own kidney fat. That didn’t really get my curiosity going enough to bump it up either. It wasn’t until I was looking at the cost of booking Burnt Ends in Singapore that I realised, I don’t need to fork out three times as much for an expensive restaurant there, when I could get the “same” thing here for much less! And that’s how I finally went to Firedoor.
With a few hours left of 2016, I figure I’d tidy this blog up a bit and squeeze a couple more posts in from my adventures earlier this year. One of my favourite new cafes (yes I’m heavily biased) is Neighbourhood by Sean McManus. He was absolutely awesome when I used to frequent Single O, and now he is even more awesome with his little hole in the wall!
Not only does he have his own oat milk, his espressos are quite different! I love them because I find they’re the perfect flavour – a filter profile with the punch of espresso. His hot chocolates look pretty awesome too!
So here’s a photo dump of coffees, a shiny machine, and a resident plant!
