Caesar Salad Review: Black Pepper, Belconnen

Black Pepper Caesar Salad

I've been wanting to do this for ages, and I've done it sporadically but not in any formal fashion.  I wanted to have a little review section for my favourite salad - caesar salad, that I often have when I'm out at cafes.  Because they do vary quite a lot and whenever I eat them I'm thinking how I can blog them.  Tragic I know ;)

For the purposes of my reviews I will comment on the most popular variation of the salad we get here, which includes cos lettuce, croutons, bacon, parmesan cheese, egg, anchovies, and sauce.

Location: Black Pepper, Belconnen
Price: $14.00

Lettuce: cos, all good
Croutons: non-existent (unless they were just breadcrumbs that were mixed in with the sauce)
Bacon: really generous, nicely cooked, winner there
Parmesan cheese: almost non-existent, only saw one tiny piece
Egg: one poached/coddled? on top
Anchovies: check, given to the sweetie
Sauce: good flavour, good amount.

So a pretty decent version of the salad.  The generous helping of bacon made up for the lack of parmesan cheese. Would happily have this again.

Glad to see the poached egg! I always feel ripped off if a caesar salad doesnt have one!
