Olio Cafe: St Leonards (3 July 2012)

A well-known coffee place that serves the Kopi Luwak (apparently produced by a wild cat/rodent’s gut) which brings in coffee lovers from all over Sydney. However today I was meeting up with my friend for a strictly food date, as she had recommended the lunch menu from Olio’s. Located within the forum area outside St Leonards station, Olio’s seemed to be filled with mostly workers from nearby buildings coming in for the food and coffee.

 I was intrigued to know how they were going to make their lamb gyros, as I’ve only had it homemade once by a family friend. I was pleasantly surprised to find that they had made the gyros pastry from scratch, which resembled a flaky large pancake that was used as a wrap for the well-marinated shredded lamb pieces that was served with eggplant, tabouli, tzatziki and lemon. And as a bonus, it’s also served with some very chunky and crunchy potato wedges.
