Little Diner is a new restaurant that caught X's eye and we were both excited to check it out so we headed there for dinner one Sunday night. It's located right next to Onion and parking is readily available just outside the restaurant, or at Guthrie House.
It was about 8 when we got there and it was full.
We were allocated bar seats at first as the restaurant was full.
Wild Mushroom Soup- $11.50
The soup was really really delicious! It's rich, fragrant and full of flavour. Definitely one of the nicest mushroom soups I've ever had! The price is pretty steep for a bowl of mushroom soup but it definitely opened up our appetites! We were really happy about the soup and were excited about the rest of our meal
Special of the day: Pan seared scallops with saffron beurre blanc and truffled potato escallope - $19.50
This sounded really good and we ordered it. When it came, we were slightly disappointed with the portion. It was just alright. The scallops were juicy but the taste of the potato, scallop and sauce didn't quite go together
Chargrilled strip steak(250g) - $27.50
I was impressed by the huge slab of steak when it first arrived, only to be extremely disappointed with it. The steak was pretty much tasteless except for the "grilled" taste. It was also dry. The herb butter only made the steak oily but did not add any flavour to it.
Burger - $18
X was super excited about his burger when he saw this other lady having it. He couldn't stop complaining about the burger, sadly. The patty was dry and it was falling apart constantly as X tried to cut through the burger. It was pretty tasteless too and the bread was too dry also. The best part was actually the fries with ketchup.
We had a great start to the meal with the wild mushroom soup sweeping us off our feet only to be really disappointed with our main courses. The staff were attentive and service was pretty good. I also liked the laidback vibe of the restaurant.
K's rating of Little Diner: 6.5/10
