HillV2 may not be the most familiar name to you, especially if you don’t live in the West. Located near Hillview station – on the downtown line – HillV2 is a relatively new establishment that boasts of quite a few dininig options, and Starker Bistro is one of them. With a variety of food and choice beers, the main attraction lies in the decor of brick walls, high ceilings and spartan finishings. For a moment I thought I’d been transported to Germany!
G: They have weekday lunch sets available, from 12pm to 2pm. Set lunch includes choice of salad or soup, main course and choice of 1 beverage (soft drinks, coffee or tea). If you swing by on a weekend, don’t fret. There are also weekend lunch sets, with a few different options for the mains.
Prawn Aglio Olio – $20.80Roasted Half Chicken – $17.80Pan-Seared Dory – $17.80Pulled Pork Sliders – $20.80G: I personally like the prawn aglio olio and pulled pork sliders! The prawns are perfectly sautéed and juicy, and the essence of garlic and chilli padi are constant throughout each mouthful. For the sliders, the buttered buns complemented the tender strips of marinated pork.
