Space has only been open two months, but it’s the best thing that’s happened for Woden CBD dining for years.
Every dish is a winner. You just can’t go wrong.
This however, makes choosing very difficult.
Whether to go for one of the all day breakfast dishes, like the Polenta Waffles with lemon thyme sautéed mushrooms, goat’s cheese poached eggs, corn purée, salsa verde and the truffle oil that is added at the table with great flair and fun! $18.90…
…the Smoked Salmon Breakfast $18.90 delicious flavours with hot smoked salmon, poached eggs, smashed avocado, coconut roesti, puffed grains, dukkah and lime dressing…
….or the still truly top breakfast pick Space Benedict – pulled pork croquette with poached eggs, beetroot hollandaise, pork cracking brioche crumb and pea purée $18.90…
…or one of the lovely salads like the top pick Pulled Pork Salad $18.90 with pulled pork, pearl couscous, almonds, peas, mint, feta, pomegranate and Harissa yogurt…..
….or the Roast Vegetable Salad $18.90 with roasted baby carrots, pumpkin, beetroot, green olive and almond tapenade, pickled grapes, walnuts, goats cheese, quinoa and lemon poppy seed dressing …
….( very nice, but not as good as the second top pick Chicken Peach Salad or the third top pick Smoked Trout Salad)….
….or one of the very generous Gourmet Sandwiches like the deliciously flavoured Roast Chicken sandwich $14.90 with roast lemon and thyme chicken, smashed avocado and peas, fresh tomato, Swiss cheese and lime aioli.
This would be a good choice if you’re not so hungry and want to take some with you for later, or if two people are wanting to share a light savoury snack with a drink and you weren’t wanting….
…the Pulled Pork Roll $14.90 has a good flavour with the lemongrass pulled pork, coriander, carrot, chicken pate, lime aioli and chilli , but it gets a little soggy underneath….
…or the smaller Mushroom Sandwich $14.90 that comes on a brioche roll and includes a goats cheese stuffed portobello mushroom with green olive and almond tapenade and crème fraiche…
….one of the beautiful work of art patisserie choices like the Blueberry Blueberry $9.90 Cheesecake, good for sharing as serves are generous and the cake quite rich.
However, you may like to try one of the gourmet burgers like the Pulled Pork Sliders $16.90 for three on a charcoal coloured brioche bun – pulled pork, salsa verde, cabbage slaw with chipotle aioli….
…or the Chicken Burger $16.90 a crispy Moroccan spiced chicken breast with purple slaw, bacon and aioli…
…..or the Calamari – sumac spiced crispy calamari with red pepper hummus, smoked almonds, quinoa and watercress salad with citrus aioli $19.90.
Perhaps the very best choices are the salads and the more savoury breakfast dishes.
However, every dish is presented beautifully and thoughtfully…the flavours always delight.
Every visit to Space is a treat.
But the secret is out, so do head there early to make sure you get a table.
Some bookings are taken, but there’s always Space left for walk-ins.
It can get noisy so ask for the table in the corner between the Furzer Street window and the bar if you have a group and want to chat.
The only way to solve the problem of what to order is to visit regularly and work though the whole menu!
A mission to look forward to.
