After enjoying CBRfoodie.org‘s great post on the weekday lunch specials at the Treehouse Bar, I had to try them out. The Chilli Salt Squid Salad ($9) was especially good as was the wine ($3). Serve sizes are ideal for lunch. But once there, I was also keen on the great weekday dinner specials and went back to try the 2 for 1 ($18) Thursday gourmet burgers as well. The Rollers on Wednesday nights ($10 with a beer or cider) are still on my wish list.
The Spiced lamb burger with grilled eggplant, spinach and hummus and the Chicken burger with bacon, avocado, cheddar and ranch dressing were both delicious and I’d like to try the Double beef cheeseburger with caramelised onion, pickles, tomato and mustard and the Lentil burger with tomato, rocket, avocado salsa, alfalfa and peanut sauce. Burgers come with a side of hand cut chips and aioli that were a nice addition. (To be honest, one burger with chips could be enough for two.)
At night the Treehouse is very pretty especially if you sit upstairs and enjoy the lights. Happy Hour drinks at night (5-7pm Wednesday to Friday) are $5 for tap beer, house wine, basic spirits & house sparkling making dinner (as wells lunch) very reasonable.
Interestingly, although parking close can be impossible in the city weekdays, there seem to be plenty of parks in front of the Supreme Court, on London Circuit, around lunchtime as people move around.
