The Fox hotel on Wellington St in Collingwood has a reputation for excellent food, and last week I went to the first Cherchez la Femme feminism discussion event there with friends. We arrived early so we could have dinner beforehand. I loved my peppered kangaroo steak open sandwich with caramelised onion, beetroot relish, roasted tomato and aioli (below). I also enjoyed sharing a bottle of Bitch grenache, from the Barossa, a light and tasty bargain at $26. The Fox is my new favourite pub!
My friends were also impressed with their meals: the open duck and potato red curry pie topped with Thai salad and roasted pork belly on mash and bok choy with seared scallops wrapped in prosciutto with a sage and burnt butter sauce. Previous happy diners include Perfectly poached and Flint interactive.
