Ojo Cafe & Bar

If you happen to be on the South side during a late lunch hour, wanting to have some simple and relaxed comfort food, you could head to Ojo Cafe & Bar (The Courtyard, Tuggeranong Hyperdome). As the name suggests it offers a cafe-styled menu in a establishment that has a bar, disco balls, dance floor and pool tables - which i believe only take action at night. It felt weird eating under a disco ball, i must say...what if it fell?

As i was skimming through the menu, my eyes were set on the Crispy Pork Belly (Twice cooked pork belly, slow-roasted then crispy fried, topped with an Asian sweet and savoury sauce served on rice with salad)...on the work 'crispy' actually. So that's what we ordered plus a Veal Scaloppini Gamberi (Tender veal scaloppini sautéed with prawns, garlic and sun-dried tomatoes in a brandy cream sauce served with mash and salad). To my surprise the pork belly was super crispy and piping hot! I definately wasn't expecting that. The veal was tender and the pranws were nice, but i still had my mind on the pork belly. If only the portions were bigger...more pork bellies that is =P

Hee... ojo!! We go there for all our work functions & birthday parties =)

Always order beforehand if you going during the weekdays for lunch as they are normally really packed and the food takes forever to come out.

I think there's not too many options down in Tuggeranong and they have a bar. So its very convenient for people to go for lunch celebrations or after work drinks.
