The Royal Croquet Club is a summer festival at Birrarung Marr of food, beverages, beats and croquet of course. Today is the last day so grab some friends and head on down.
It was a beautiful summer setting with loads of fake grass and cute seated areas.
Here are some people playing croquet.There were a few more croquet sets this year which was great so more people got a chance to play.
It’s been super hot in late so beverages were in order. They had a lovely range of Yalumba wines and Jugs of Pimms to share with your mates (or drink all to yourself, whatever, no judgement). There was also a captain Morgan’s bar serving the best spiced rum.
Ruyi had their crispy chicken bites with sweet honey wasabi sauce. The sauce had a good wasabi punch. Yum!
From Gazi we had the saganaki croquette which was like a stick of saganaki crumbed and deep fried. So good! The fried cheese was paired with a peppered fig dipping sauce that was savoury and sweet.
Bluebonnet BBQ were serving cornbread waffles with smoked pork belly, creamed corn and porcini popcorn. This looked amazing was delicious. It was an interesting combination of flavours and textures. It was great.
The Kingfish rice paper rolls from Tokyo Tina, were simple and fresh. They came with a nice plum dipping sauce.
Mamasita corn is the best kind of corn. It is slathered with cheese, chipotle mayo and paprika. It was spicy and creamy and amazing. Love.
Pidapipo were serving a range of gelato which is so perfect for this weather. They had a range of flavours. Raspberry white chocolate, passionfruit, salted caramel, nutella swirl etc. The Nutella swirl was my fave,
Today is the last day of the event so head down. Perfect weather for it!
I heart the RCC!
