Gastrology bloggers dined courtesy of Frankie Says.
Gastrology bloggers recently joined the masterminds behind culinary hot spots Hoy Pinoy, The Meatball Company, The Melt Shop and Café Italia as they shared their first look and taste of their new Eatery & Bar and debuted a series of table wines.
Frankie Says, the brand spanking new Eatery and Bar along the riverside in Abbotsford is set to open in late January 2015.
Founders Megan Phillis and James Meehan, were thrilled to launch their new project and to provide us with a little teaser of what’s in store when Frankie Says opens its doors.
Frankie is more of an idea than a person, the outlet for Phillis and Meehan’s creativity and the fun aspect of their food business. Frankie Says embodies all the things they love about Italian food, specially created for local residents to enjoy like it’s their own place. As Frankie Says - eat, drink, share and relax.
Frankie Says promises to serve up a delicious range of antipasto boards, the perfect share plate, a variety of savoury and sweet-filled Panzerotti, homemade stone-oven pizzas and to finish a selection of traditional style deserts.
The Panzerottis were sumptuous golden pockets with mouth-watering fillings. We loved the pork belly and apple panzerotti in particular which was filled with generous amounts of melt in your mouth pork and slightly tart apple slices.
The desserts were amazing. Creative yet grounded in tried and true flavour combinations. We adores the salted caramel cheesecake which was decadent and absolutely delicious.
A unique aspect of the eatery and bar will be the ever-changing menu, ensuring regulars are able to expect a different menu upon every visit.
We enjoyed Frankie Says’ new series of table wines at the event, a bright and inviting 2013 Sauvignon Blanc from the Adelaide Hills with luscious citrus and tropical notes, and a 2012 Padthaway Cabernet Sauvignon with rich ripe berry and minty leaf characters.
While you’re waiting for Frankie Says to officially open its doors in 2015, visit the Frankie Says cart hosted each Wednesday at Queen Victoria Night Market, and Coburg Markets each Friday in December.
