Potato pizza at Bourke Street Bakery, Alexandria
Being a complete Bourke Street Bakery junkie, I've memorised every single vego lunch option they have. So I had a nerdish heart-spasm when I noticed they had something utterly brand new yesterday: Potato Pizza with Rosemary, Spanish Onion and Ricotta. It was a one-off special and lived up to all the good meanings of that word.
And the bad definition of it too - the pizza is just a fleeting menu addition, and not a stayer.
I asked the staff if they'd reconsider and allow it another cameo or two.
"Well, never say never."
So why were they so reluctant to revisit the pizza dish? Apparently because it involves an annoying amount of potato prep.
If someone's willing to be a potato slave, maybe we'll see this 'special' again. I hope so, because it is awesome. (And just when you thought Bourke Street Bakery couldn't out-awesome itself anymore.)
