Mediterranean food that will leave you with a sparkle
On a dinner-searching stroll down Burwood Rd, my friend and I stumbled upon a spacious and cosy restaurant called SparQling.
After a quick browse of the menu taped on the exterior wall, we decided to dine in this establishment. It was relatively empty for an early Wednesday night as most restaurants situated in close proximity with Burwood Westfield and the Burwood Train-station would be bustling with eager and hungry customers.
I was amazed by the interior decor which included colourful chairs, stable wooden tables and slots in the wall decorated by SparQling menus.
We were greeted automatically with the waiter who provided us with the menu and table water. After thoroughly browsing the menu and also the food of the neighbouring table, we decided to go with two entrees as we were not that hungry. The mains, however, included a variety of food such as Tokyo and Mexican burgers (fries are included), assorted pizzas and pastas. We ordered the nachos and the sliders which came in a set of 3. It was appropriately priced as well with the nachos coming to $15.90 and the sliders at $13.90.
We were shocked by the size of the nachos plate which we were eventually not able to finish. The nachos were accompanied by generous amounts of cheese, guacamole, sour cream, beans and beef.
Entree - nachos
The stringy cheese was perhaps the highlight of the dish which was best eaten as soon as the hot plate arrived. The sliders were equally delicious. It had beef patty, cheese, lettuce and tomato filling.
The buns of the sliders had a tinge of sweetness which complemented the savoury components.
Overall, we were both very satisfied by the service and delectable food. I would definitely be a return guest to try out the mains as well.
