Babylon Bakery, 40 Rosebery Street, Altona Meadows. Phone: 9369 2992
So here’s Consider The Sauce thinking it had a pretty good handle on the places across the west that purvey Lebanese pies and pizzas … when reader Carolyn comes up with a new one for us to try in Altona Meadows.
Babylon Bakery, just around the corner from a small neighbourhood shopping centre, has been in business for about four years.
Three of us rock up for Saturday lunch and have a fabulous time.
After we occupy one of the outside tables, boss man Diya moves the big umbrella so it covers us, the table and our food in pleasant shade.
Sarah cuts all our oven-baked choices into three for sharing ease and brings the plates to our table.
We feel like kings of the world sitting on an Altona Meadows nature strip.
As we’re sharing, we have the za’atar with vegatables done in open pizza style rather than as a wrap. It costs $5.
It’s very good.
As are our lemon-spinach-onion, chicken and spinach-cheese pies, all of which cost a simply fabulous $3.50.
Our nutella pie (top picture, $5.50) is brought to our table looking like a work of art
Studded with plump, hot, oven-roasted sultanas, it’s a wonderful thing, thinner and less doughy than many we’ve had.
My cafe latte is scalding hot but excellent.
