As part of this Saturday’s Love Lennox Festival, 23 eateries have met the challenge of creating the best flavour they can offer for $5. Entrants are in the running for a People’s Choice Award and anyone who tries five ‘Flavours’ and votes is in the running for Lennox-based foody prizes.

Get in early

Get in early to Foam, as last year’s taco entry (which, I have on good authority, was amazing) sold out by mid-afternoon. This year’s Flavour creation is a Warm Peppered Beef Salad, combining the flavours of chili, cashew, coriander and mint. This is a dish designed to maximise the taste that can be held in one hand.

An Italian greeting

In the Italian region of Le Marche, guests are traditionally greeted with a canapé called Olive all’Ascolana, a large Sicilian olive stuffed with herbs and mince before being crumbed and deep fried and topped with a tapenade or aioli. This will be your welcome to Quattro, which has brought this Flavour back from last year, by popular demand.

A mini Cuban

Café Marius’s Mini Cuban Roll is a ‘mini-me’ of a regular menu item – the popular Cuban Sandwich. Pictured here with the smiling Marius, the organic sourdough mini-roll is filled with Mount Warning smoked ham, pulled pork, swiss cheese, house-made pickles, diced pineapple and an habañero aioli. Yum!

Last year’s winner

The winner of the 2015 People’s Choice Award was Lex Thai, with their Chicken and Prawn Crispy Dumpling. This year, they’re sticking with the dumpling theme but going with seafood as their Flavour to see if they can take the prize for a second time.
