Hammer and Tong 412 in Fitzroy

On Saturday, Mr. C decided to bring me to Fitzroy to sample the tasty morsel we've heard so much about at Hammer & Tong. Initially, I was worried that the wait would be long but after a short wait or what felt like a short wait despite the crowd, we were seated.

I was pleased.

After browsing the menu, we placed our orders and scanned about our surroundings.

We had our usual drink- him with his latte and mine, a mug of mocha. The froth was really smooth (and that's one of the ways you can tell if your coffee was made right) and the flavour just perfect. For the mocha, the balance between coffee and chocolate was just balance well.

Breakfast Ramen $15

As for food, Mr. C had the Breakfast Ramen. It was ideal for him as he wasn't in the mood for creamy, rich Aussie brekkie. When it arrived, the waitress kindly poured bacon dashi into his bowl of ramen that had 62c hens egg, bacon, oyster mushroom and spring onion. I had a few mouthfuls and it was simply delicious!

Soft Shell Crab Burger $12

I, on the other hand had the famous Soft Shell Crab Burger. It took a looooong while in arriving and when it did, the wait was worth every single bite. Each bite was orgasmic with the flavours bursting in my mouth. The sauce was yum and the crab, crisp! And yes, the burger looked small when first served but for me, I think it was just the right portion together with my mocha filling my tummy.

I admit that describing the flavours and tastes of the food are not my strong suit but then again, what is? Lol.
All I can say is, the Soft Shell Crab Burger and the Breakfast Ramen is definitely a must have!! 

So, what are you waiting for??

Hello from Third Wave,

We have touched base with you on another occasion inviting you to try the new café in Prahran. Now I would like to invite you to try our American BBQ dinner menu.

On the menu are 5 different meats and Smoked Salmon. They are all smoked with different woods to impart specific flavours and are done with dry rubs. Beef Brisket, Beef Ribs and Lamb Shoulder are smoked for up to 12 hours using Hickory wood in a proprietary mix of spices. Brisket is marinated for up to 48 hours prior to smoking. The amazing flavours penetrate the meat such that you don’t need to add any sauce.

Pork Ribs and Chicken are smoked with Maple wood for 5-6 hours. Pork Ribs are the standout of our menu, fall of the bone, juicy and packed with flavour. No sauce required (only if you want to add that extra punch).

Salmon is marinated, dried out and smoked with Apple wood. People often say that the result is nothing like they tasted before.
We have lots of tasty side dishes as well as house made BBQ Sauces. See the entire menu at http://thirdwavecafe.com.au/prahran/menu_dinner.php

We would love to invite you and a friend to try the American BBQ menu. Please email me on info@thirdwavecafe.com.au with a suitable time. Dinner will be on us.

The invite is for the Prahran venue. Thank you for your consideration.

Best regards,

P.S. We also have a really interesting Reuben variation, Pulled Pork and Soft Shell Crab Sliders and a few tasty quesadillas. Lots to try.
