Ricardo’s Cafe for lunch

We went to Ricardo’s Cafe for lunch hoping for a Reuben sandwich

Bron, Max and I recently went to Ricardo’s cafe for lunch and noticed they had a Reuben sandwich on their specials menu. We went back today hoping for two things, viz., a Reuben and a pulled pork sandwich. Unfortunately the Reuben was off today’s specials menu. We ordered croque madame and the pulled pork burger and Max ate the hot potato chips that came with the burger.

I am happy to say Ricardo’s cafe makes the best caramel thick shakes anywhere.

The pulled pork had a Vietnamese sauce/dressing which had a really nice spicy kick to it. We’d happily eat this again (and possibly again and again).

The melted Gruyére cheese, smoked ham, dijon mustard sour cream just added amazing flavours to this late breakfast dish. The salad was also very yummy.

I couldn’t finish this. I shared some with Max. So rich and so good.

Max loved his salted caramel mousse.


 

Bron and I marvel at how good Ricardo’s Cafe is as a local casual dining establishment. Hidden away in a suburban shopping centre. It’s popularity is growing but I hope it doesn’t change.

If you want to know where it is, just search for Jamison Plaza in Macquarie. If you’re afraid to leave the south side (you know who you are) that’s fine, more for us north siders 🙂 


 

After lunch I walked home. Correction, I waddled home. There was nothing low carbohydrate or low calorie about our lunch. As I walked I noticed along the lane between Belconnen Way and Catchpole Street about seven shopping trolleys from Woolworths, Coles and I assume Aldi. It made me think of Tara and her quest to control abandoned shopping trolleys in Belconnen


No walk would be complete without saying hello to Mr Owl and his alter ego, viz., #pubicart


Rather than not share some images I thought I’d also mention that last night we had dinner at the Canberra Southern Cross Club Jamison

  1. On our first joy ride in our new car we went looking for Ricardo’s but it was 5.00pm and run out of most things. So didn’t get to try anything. Will make a point to visit soon.

  2. I will be visiting Canberra soon so I will try to get to this cafe. The food looks amazing. That apple cheesecake is something else again!

    1. The shake was so thick but not too thick. My favourite place for shakes. The pulled pork was just amazing and the roll is was served in was perfect with it.

  3. My new neighbours (in a rental property) seem to be collecting trolleys on their front lawn. Every time I drive past there is a new addition. We’re up to 5 now :-/

  4. Oh I reckon I better get on a visit to Ricardos, everyone is talking about it of late, and from the look of your pictures, I understand why. Love the shake and the burger and the pretty desserts, which is what they are famous for right?
    Im a south sider, but going to cross the bridge to experience this stat. 🙂
    Have a happy weekend Gary.

    1. Thanks Anna, I hope you like it there. It gets busy so sometimes reserving a table is worthwhile especially on a Sunday. Jamison has markets on a Sunday so parking can be a challenge. I look forward to hearing about your experience 🙂
