Head to Small Fry for big flavours
Recently I spent a long weekend in Hobart to celebrate a friends 40th birthday. The invitation gave an itinerary of visits to Hobart's finer, but lesser known establishments. First stop, Small Fry for breakfast and to cure a hangover. Small Fry is exactly as the name suggests - small, intimate, with delectable morsels to entice you to visit each day to sample the latest creation.

Although I am health conscience I could not go past the peanut and jelly donut with freeze dried raspberries for breakfast. A handmade delight brought to life on the premises, accompanied by a glass of Mauro Vergano Vermouth Bianco "BVB" from Piedmonte, Italy. Vermouth and donuts? Well yes actually, they go amazingly well together. Although overwhelmed I had burnt serious carbs walking up the hill to Small Fry and earned an appetite.

Well, my inner Homer Simpson did appear as I could not go past the pork belly slider. Small, delectable, a little bit of chilly in the house made mayonnaise, rocket, and just the perfect slice of pork belly with the fat snuggled in a brioche bun. Divine! So with my belly full I wandered downhill to my accommodation for an afternoon nap. The rest is history. What else can I tell you? Just go to Small Fry.
