Stop 17

Stop 17 is one of the latest food destinations to hit Fitzroy. Offering more than just a bar or cafe, Stop 17 features Australia's first Writers Room - a room dedicated to authors, screenwriters and directors designed to get its visitors' creative juices flowing.

And if the Writers' Room isn't enough to conjure up some inspiration - the cocktails surely will.  On weekends Stop 17 has a Mixologist on board who, after telling her your preference for taste (e.g. sweet, sour, fruity) will whip you up a unique alcoholic creation.

But back to the food, serving up breakfast, lunch and dinner, there are some interesting (but delicious) dishes on their menu including the crispy buffalo pigs tails with ranch dipping sauce, and the duck liver pate slider with maple bacon, homemade slaw and Japanese mayo. Whilst not the most attractive dishes going around, they definitely delivered on flavour!

However, you would be crazy to go past the  nachos (loaded with fresh and flavoursome toppings) and the fried chicken wings marinated in Middle Eastern spices and served with spicy yogurt.

With such a unique and creative concept, paired with passionate and visionary staff, Stop 17 is one of those places which will surely succeed. Whilst I look forward to seeing Stop 17 fine tune and develop its concepts, most of all I look forward to going back to try their iconic "Krabby Eggs" (Blue Swimmer crab sauteed with garlic, ginger, shallots, red chilli and curry scrambled eggs) which they serve up at breakfast.

Food: 3.5/5
