Meatballs and Sons – Brunswick St, Fitzroy

Meatballs and Sons is a great new restaurant in trendy Brunswick St, Fitzroy. It was opened in early April by a friend I used to work with, and her husband. We have been eagerly awaiting the opening of the restaurant since late last year and were really excited to be able to try the food. It’s based on share plates of the different meatballs. Inspired by world flavours, we tried the Greek Lamb Meatballs and the Tandoori Meatballs with pappadums. The flavours were so delicious. The flavour of the Greek Lamb meatballs is delicate and served with a Greek salad. The Tandoori Meatballs had a hit of heat which I loved. I’m a big fan of Tandoori food. For dessert we couldn’t go past the Brownie. Rather than a chunk of brownie they serve thin slices with jam and cream. OMG it was sooo delicious. You have to save some room for the brownie even if you don’t normally eat dessert.

The magnificent brownie. Again it’s a good idea to share this unless you are still really hungry.

Cherry drink
This cherry drink is one of the non-alcoholic house specialities. At the time we visited they didn’t have their liquor licence so we tried this. It was very nice not to have to drink a fizzy drink).

They give you the bill in this cute little envelope which is different to anything else I’ve seen before.
