SASSI CUCINA - cnr Macrossan and Wharf Streets

Image
One of our popular lunch spots in Macrossan Street is Sassi's opposite ANZAC Park.
For lunch we like good value and to be able to dine at a high end restaurant for a reasonable cost is always a pleasure. To keep the prices down we order the house wine which comes in a half litre carafe for $13. The white is Pinot Grigio and the red is Shiraz.

Sardines, not out of a can but honest to good salt preserved sardines on ciabatta with garlic, light chilli, parsley and of course the salt that the sardines come in. Teams perfectly with the house white Pinot Grigio.

Enter the main course - Pizza and the house red.

Pizza - Napolitana - $24
With a light beer and a gin and tonic - $87 the lot.

Far North Queensland Finger Limes

Guess what? Far north Queensland diners are about to see Finger Limes on the menus of some of the better restaurants in Port Douglas and Mossman.

Grown in the Shannonvale Valley by local man, Mark Bayne, Pink Champagne and Chartreuse finger limes are snap frozen when picked and delivered free in Mossman and Port Douglas.
Finger Limes enhance many dishes especially sea food and with 2 Fish being declared the best sea food restaurant in Australia this week expect to have those taste buds tested.

Comments:

The stand out was the Mackerel, it was simply gorgeous and was head and shoulders
over the usual for lunch in Port Douglas.
At $118.50 for a Thursday lunch we thought it a tad expensive and looking at the drinks bill, the gin and tonic was overp…
