Spending an afternoon at the Playground

——-10/11/2012——-

Tapas are served till 10pm at Playground Martina and Tapas bar, so after missing out the first time I made sure I was nice and early not to miss out again.

Smoked ham hock croquette, garlic mayo ($12.00). When I see the word ‘croquette’ I get really excited and I had to order these. These were really disappointing and mainly filled with mashed potato and hardly any pork, although it did have a really nice crunchy coating.

House made chocolate tart with vanilla ice-cream and caramel ($12.00). A really delicious tart with the perfect sides.

Churros with caramel and chocolate sauce ($12.00). I was looking forward to this the most, which was a shame when they came out a little under-cooked and soggy. They would have been perfect if they were cooked a little longer or a little thinner.

I loved the cute ‘glassware’ seats, the service was friendly and prompt but they don’t take bookings after 4:30pm.
