In news that will no doubt tickle your tastebuds, two of your favourites – wine and espresso – have come together in the form of Dragonfly Espresso & Wine Bar and catch ya new year healthy eating plan.
Broadbeach, home of all the fancy new foodie spots, welcomed Dragonfly in late December to their new digs underneath the Oasis Shopping Centre and y’all should pop in quick smart.
The simple space is all white furniture and wooden accents with a sleek black coffee machine and windows overlooking the Chefs doing their thing. A hole in the wall is dedicated to takeaway coffee orders (as all good holes in the wall should be) and you may sit outside in the shade watching passers by.
The venue is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner so there’s no need to ever visit the supermarket again, quite frankly. Especially because the food guys, is SO GOOD.
Let’s start with the most important meal of the day, wine. Kidding, it’s breakfast apparently. Dragonfly Waffles are probably the most beautiful breakfast meal we’ve ever laid eyes upon complete with golden waffles, vanilla custard, berry compote, a mini magnum ice cream and pistachio praline. Yep.
Another delightfully delicious dish is the Avocado and Buffalo Mozzarella Mousse with blistered heirloom cherry tomatoes, shaved cucumber, beetroot and cured Tasmanian Atlantic salmon with a ponzu sauce.
For dinner, you’ll want to inhale the Grilled Chicken Mousse with layers of Camembert (LAYERS PEOPLE), parsnip puree, white asparagus, snow peas, red sorrel and spiced cabsav reduction.
So yeah, the food hey. The idea is that it’s the same top quality produce everyone else uses but at a better price. You’ve gotta be happy with that.
The wine list is three pages long including stunning drops from both overseas and right here in good old Aus.
It’s an intimate, high quality affair right in the heart of Broadbeach and you may as well break your eating out drought right now because there are plenty more to come.
