During my hung-over sunday, I ventured out yet again. I went north with no plan really, the goal was to maybe hit a couple of pubs to wind down the weekend. Somehow I ended up just south of where Oxford Street crossed William Street where I found a block or so of interesting restaurants that were a bit separated from the herd. After checking out the whole street I decided to venture into one called Aquaviva's.
There is a nice little bar downstairs but I went right up to the second story to look around. What I found was out of place, but neat. The decor was a mish-mash of semi Victorian furniture with clashing colors and oddly placed wall decorations. In addition to the inside there was a nice little deck outside the second story that on a more sunny day I might have been tempted to eat at. Overall the place seamed just random enough that it took away my sunday boredom for a bit. I decided to stick around and order the kangaroo steak and some wine to go along.
The disappointing thing about this place was the portion of my food. This was a 25 dollar Kangaroo steak, and it was basically a couple of bites. It didn't taste bad however, I would describe the taste of this kangaroo as a mix between pork and steak, definitely worth trying again under cheaper circumstances!
