Anyway, there is one dish that I thoroughly enjoy having when I am at Bistrode CBD: Lambs Hearts and Minds ($19 entree) . It is, as the name of the dish suggests, lambs brains, which have been deep fried and served with tartare sauce, and grilled lambs hearts. The dish also comes with a salad of green beans, bitter salad leaves, and almonds.
Once you get over the fact that you are indeed eating brains and are not Hannibal Lecter for doing so, lamb brains are quite a treat and very delicious. They are crumbed and deep fried so you get a nice, crispy exterior. This crispy outside goes very well with brain, which is creamy and just melts in your mouth. I am always happy to see lamb brains on menus at restaurants but unfortunately they are not that popular probably because of the cringe factor. And of course the tartare sauce is great and goes well with fried food.
The lamb hearts are also delicious. They are still slightly pink in the centre and not over cooked and have great flavour. And the salad, which has been dressed with vinegar, is fresh and nicely crisp.
