Lunch at Graze @ the factory

It was a great day for a drive in the country. Warm relatively humid weather. Not too much glare and not too much traffic. 

Junee is about two and a half hours drive from Canberra. Junee is known as the home of NSW and Australian rugby league player Laurie Daley and rugby league broadcaster Ray Warren. It’s also the home of a licorice and chocolate factory which in a former life was a flour mill.

The factory does tours and has a gift shop plus restaurant and cafe. We went looking in the gift shop and the theme was mainly kitchen appliances and gadgets plus Crocs® The cafe is aligned with the sales outlet for the licorice and chocolate. There are all sorts of flavours and shapes. They seem to do a big trade in freckles, frogs and boobs. Yes boobs, milky white boobs. And also milk chocolate boobs.

The restaurant has a nice big spacious feel and a country style menu with steak sandwiches, hamburgers, fish and chips, steak and some salads.

Bron chose a Junee lamb burger with red beans, guacamole and sour cream plus a granny smith cider. I chose a sirloin steak with a garden salad and chips. I asked for the steak to be cooked rare and to come with a peppercorn sauce.

Bron liked her burger. The meat was juicy, flavoursome and tender and the bun was nicely toasted and still soft. The guacamole and sour cream with red kidney beans worked really well together. The chips had a great flavour, but we’re a bit too soft for Bron’s liking. 
 
The cider was crisp, dry and wonderfully refreshing. Perfect for a warm 32 °C plus warm windy day looking out to the lovely shade of the vine encased outdoor dining area.

My steak was good. It was mostly rare with some areas a little more medium rare. The fat was mostly rendered but there was some gristle which tasted good but it was tough. The salad was lightly dressed so no splashing of vinegar and oil on my white shirt 🙂 The chips were tasty but soft. I also had a caramel thickshake which was pretty good.
