New menu @ Walt and Burley

A friend had her birthday lunch at Walt and Burley on the Kingston Foreshore. It had been a while since I’d dined here and I noticed a brand new menu. Since I wanted dessert, I decided to order the pulled confit duck salad ($28) as my main. The salad was really just rocket. A LOT […] Read more…
