Lunch at Tiger Mottle, Paddington

This is not the first time I have visited this delicious cafe, Tiger Mottle which can be found on Glenmore Road in Five Ways, Paddington.

I was catching up with a dear friend, M for lunch and considering neither of us had our cars that day, thought we would go somewhere that was relatively close. We had such a good breakfast here, that we thought we would come back and try their lunch.

The coffee was as good as I remembered, skim flat white – strong and very aromatic.

It was a steamy day and I opted for something relatively healthy for lunch – smoked ocean trout salad with bocconcini, green beans, avocado, tomato, crispy capers and racquet ($16.50). It was a relatively large serving, big chunks of ocean trout, bocconcini and avocado. The ocean trout was served warm and incredibly succulent. I loved the combination of bocconcini and avocado, soft and creamy, and the crispy capers were just the perfect complement. It was rather filling and unfortunately, didn’t manage to finish everything but it was definitely delightful.

M, opted for the Grilled Chicken Salad with avocado, baked ricotta, tomato, caramelized onions and walnuts. It was also a large serving – big cuts of chicken breast on a bed of rocket and spinach mixed together with baked ricotta and topped with caramelized onions. From memory, she didn’t eat any of the caramelized onions as she is not a fan, but managed to finish everything else. The chicken I thought was a little dry but she seemed to have enjoyed it.

It was wonderful catching up with M, and I have certainly taking a liking to Tiger Mottle. The breakfast was excellent, the service was a little sketchy that day, but the coffee and food definitely made up for it!
