It’s open – see review HERE.
We love the pies and pizzas we eat or buy at a couple of places in the west.
But we have long lamented the lack of a more broad and deep Middle Eastern food experience in the western suburbs.
In particular, we dream of the sort food provided by the likes of Al-alamy and Abbout Falafel House in Coburg – not full-service Lebanese restaurants complete with multiple kebab offerings, but instead offering an array of pies, pizzas AND divine dips served with pita bread, terrific salads and condiments such as salty, crunchy pickles and olives.
And all at super-cheap prices.
Well, now it seems as though those dreams are soon to come true.
Seaside Flatbread Cafe will be opening in “about two weeks” on Borrack Square, near the corner of Millers and McArthurs roads, Altona, and tucked in behind Millers Inn.
That’s the word from a fellow named Sem, who I talk to as the fit-out work proceeds.
He seems a little bemused at the intensity of my curiosity, but when I gesture at the window art – containing images not just of pies and pizzas but the full ranges of dips, salads, falafels, pickles and more – and ask if that’s what his shop will deliver, he answers in the affirmative.
There’s even pictures of the sort of gorgeous house-made flatbread served at Abbout that is served like a blown-up bladder, emitting steam as it is torn open.
