I’ve had a bit of a funny experience with trying to get into Cornerstone. I wanted to try it for breakfast a few times but arrived too early at the market on Saturday. Another time, some fashion event seemed to take over the restaurant. And another time, after a show, the kitchen had closed.
But I did manage to get in for breakfast, snacks and drinks at various occasions. Still, this time (Friday night), I actually wanted to pay attention. How’s the food?
I remember it being a smart menu but I couldn’t remember how good it was. I’m pleased to report that it was really fantastic. My pal had a beef brisket burger on a fantastically black bun, served up with fries. His assessment that it was extremely messy to eat, and tasty, and had a sort of burnt theme to it, from the meat to the bun to the fries, but not unpleasantly so.
My grilled korean chicken was so simple, but so perfect. Really tender. Lovely sauce (I think with a sesame influence). With a really fresh handful of greens on top, I was really impressed.
Plus a waiter came over and asked us how our meals were, and the guy who took our order was friendly and in a chatty mood. A very pleasant quick meal before we caught the Friday night showing of the play, Winyanboga Yurringa.
