The Betterfield is on a high, ever since its grand opening in early May this year. Aptly named, it is nestled on High Street, a prime location for the office crowd. The cafe is spacious and minimalist, and the food is as good as it looks.

Red cheddar Scallop Tots – $16
G & J: This was definitely one of the most unique combinations – a fusion of Japanese scallops and western favourites cheddar tots. The scallops were fresh but at best average. The cheddar tots were very addictive though; crispy on the outside, fragrant and soft on the inside. If you’re a fan of hashbrowns and fried food, this is definitely for you.
The Black Angus Ribeye – $22G & J: Chilled Australian beef with truffle mustard, sea salt and mesclun salad. The “done-ness” was just right, and the texture was not overly chewy. The sea salt and truffle sauce won us over. This goes on their lunch time menu at only $17.90 a set, so it’s worth your dollar.
Other lunch set mains include Mushroom Aglio Olio ($14.90) and Furikake Prawn Spaghetti ($15.90). All sets comes with a soup-of-the-day and a drink. An additional charge of $3 for coffee applies.
French Duck Confit – $22G & J: This duck confit was a letdown, even though it looked promising. The skin was salty, and the meat was a little dry on the inside. Even the berry compote could not save the saltiness. The good side is that it comes with a side of mushroom fricassee and roasted potatoes.
There were many other items on the menu that sounded interesting, so we will definitely go back again to try them out. Drop by if you have the time.
