Flavours On Crown in Wollongong
Darrell had made the journey to Wollongong a few times for work and he was in love with the place! Every time he would come home he would rave about how stunning it was down there. My jealousy hit it's peak when he showed me photos from the Grand Pacific Drive. It's breathtaking. A must see for anyone making the journey down under.
I had to check this place out! So you can imagine how pleased I was when I found out we would be staying at a hotel not far from the Gong during our New Year's road trip.
I got straight into planning our day in Wollongong. My first priority? Finding a nice place to eat of course! That's when I first became hooked on Flavours on Crown. From the photos online it looked as though it was bursting with character...not to mention the lovely decor. I decided it was the perfect place to grab a bite.
The owners are so friendly, passionate & down to earth. They make you feel right at home! They have a nice variety of lunch options & the prices are affordable. Especially, after you see the size of the meals at Flavour's on Crown.
After getting a few recommendations from our waitress we decided on the Mezze Platter. The Mezze comes with your choice of 5 appetizers. I choose: haloumi, tzatiziki dip, marinated baby octopus, greek feta cheese. I also got a little spicy greek feta dip to try. All this comes with a generous serving of pita bread.
This was so, so good! The haloumi was warm and grilled to perfection. The homemade tzatiziki dip was fresh and bursting with that beautiful cucumber flavour. The octopus was tender and marinated in a deliciously spicy sauce. The spicy greek feta dip was mouthwatering!
We also got the Salt and Pepper squid accompanied by lemon, salad, aioli, and chips.
The squid was very tender and the pieces were rather large! The chips were so good I found myself stealing a large amount off of Darrell's plate... I think it would have taken close to 4 people to finish our two meals. This is the one time where a meal has actually been so large I couldn't eat it all. Believe me, I gave it my all but I couldn't do it!
One thing that makes Flavours on Crown special (a part from the sensational food !) is that it has a sizeable upstairs area that is perfect for large groups.
The upstairs is equipped with its own bar as well as a beautifully styled balcony. There really is no maximum amount of people required to book the space, as I said the owners are very friendly & down to earth. Just have a chat to them about what you have in mind and they are more than willing to help in any way they can.
We had a fantastic lunch at Flavours on Crown. Thank you to the owners and staff for a yummy meal. Oh, and thanks for pointing us in the direction of the Grand Pacific Drive after! ;)
