Food Gallery Café-Bar

Location: 77 Vincent Street, Daylesford
Cuisine: Local

Street view

Of the many restaurants along Vincent Street in Daylesford, we were lured into the Food Gallery by a chalkboard sign outside promoting their famous 'Oh My God' Nachoes and the fact that it was one of the few busier restaurants in the area,

The chalkboard

Tempted by nachoes, we decided to give them a shot. We waited almost 15 minutes before our nachoes finally arrived.

The serving was very large, and it looked somewhat impressive. However, we were disappointed by the sogginess of the nachoes, the average-ness of the sauces and the clumpiness of the cheese. Whilst the edges of the corn chips were still crunchy, many of the ones below were quite soggy. This would have been fine had they been smothered in melted cheese, but there was a lack of cheese in some areas, and clumps of it in others.

To be honest, I've had better nachoes in the food courts of shopping centres for half the price.

Moral of the story: a busy restaurant may not necessarily be a sign of a good restaurant.

Overall Impression: 5.5/10
