Fork on The Road was back on 12 April after the Fringe event! If you missed the last Fork on The Road post, you can check it out here. This time off, Light Square was chosen as the place of aggregation. With the grassy seatings, it was feasible for the diners to laze around in the afternoon or evening, enjoying their meals.
With the ending of daylight saving this early April, the day ends earlier than usual, around 6pm. Hence, we set off for Fork on The Road dinner event around 5.30pm to enjoy a short period of day light before the dusk kicked in.
Being driven by the research I had done the night before the visit and my unwavering curiosity, I decided to try out Little Big Cheese Co. Unfortunately, the special of the day which was the pulled pork toasty with King Island Smoked Cheddar, had been sold out and I chose to have Classic instead. It was a toasted bread with smoked shoulder ham, Swiss Gruyere, seeded mustard and lashings of butter. A stick of gherkins came as an accompaniment to the toasty.
The ham was heavily smoked and hence the saltiness was very prominent. It was sourced from Marino's in the Central Market. As the curing and smoking process is labour intensive, Little Big Cheese Co has no time but to pass this important task to the Marino's. The cheese was seriously good too! However, do prepare a cup of water when you are having this toasty as you might need it to wash away the saltiness before taking another bite.
Do try out its pulled pork toasty as it is smoked by Little Big Cheese Co itself and that is the highlight of this South Australian, Italian family run business.

Hereby I declare my favourite brownie stall is Four Seeds! There are a number of variety you can choose from, but the most famous ones are peanut butter and salted lime brownie. I tried its salted lime brownie and it was so amazing! The lime flavour was incorporated into the moist chewy texture of the brownie which was topped with sea salt flakes. The saltiness kicked in after the refreshing lime, making the brownie a special one!

|The array of food offered|
Parsnip sage and mascarpone arancini I ordered turns out to be a surprise as I never realise vegan food can be this special and delicious! Especially with the sour and sweet condiment, the fried rice ball fed my stomach really well.
