Pork Barrel Cafe

Pork Barrel Cafe during winter
Pork Barrel Cafe (King George Terrace, Parkes ACT) is located right opposite to the beautiful rose gardens of Parkes' Old Parliament House. The octagon-shaped cafe has windows all around it allowing customers to enjoy their meal while admiring the beautiful surrounds of Canberra in every season. The cafe also has some lovely paintings hanging around its walls which add a bit of colour to the simplistic decors of Pork Barrel Cafe. We decided to go there for our 'girly' lunch since it is a perfect place to have a nice and relaxing long chat!
Pork Barrel Cafe has a very cute logo!
The cafe offers a breakfast menu, a selection of pizzas, salads, sides and daily lunch specials. We decided to go for the pizza special (2-for-1 pizza lunch special on Mondays and Tuesdays) that they are having at the moment and we ended up ordering a medium Bombay Chicken Pizza (Hot and Spicy Tandoori with Spanish Onion and Raita) and a Pommodoro Pizza (Pancetta, Provolone and Semi Dried Tomatoes).

The pizzas were quite nice (though the pizza crust was a bit too thick to my liking) and i think we all agreed that the Bombay Chicken was more yummy (yummier?). It is, in fact, N's favorite pizza from Pork Barrel Cafe. For me, serving the Bombay Chicken Pizza with Raita and Pappadums was thumbs up. It feels like you are having Indian food when you dip a piece of pappadum into the tandoori and raita ^^. We were full and satisfied after finishing the pizzas and we had a great time chatting and admiring the beauty of Canberra's winter season.

It's probably my 3rd visit to Pork Barrel Cafe and i can't believe that I've never tried anything from their breakfast menu...definately going there for breakfast on my next visit! Should i go for the 'Rose Garden Recovery Breaky' or the classic 'Eggs Benedict'?
