WHAT WE ATE...
We both chose dishes from the ‘Sarnies’ menu. I went with the ‘Fish finger butty - market fish, crushed pea aioli, dill and cabbage salad on fresh white bread ($16.00)’. The delightful slabs of fresh bread encased some succulent pieces of fish. The cabbage added crunch whilst the crushed pea aioli made an interesting alternative to regular aioli.
My dining companion opted for the ‘Coronation chicken, raisin, almond, Madras spiced mayonnaise on fresh white bread ($15.00)’. This sandwich had just the right amount of heat to complement the chicken. The sandwiches at Saint James won’t leave you hungry…
WHAT WE DRANK…
My latte ($4.00) made with a house blend of Maker Fine Coffee was yummy. If you want your coffee made with house-made activated almond milk, it’s just an extra dollar.
We visited on the opening weekend and found that the service was excellent. Head chef Nick Woolard has created a British inspired menu which definitely appealed to my pommy background. A ‘butty’ or a Black pudding perhaps… Somewhere to take my dad in the future. There is also a courtyard out the back for when the weather warms up.
