Horner and Pratt - Give the B.T.T a go

HORNER AND PRATT - 31 EAST TERRACE, ADELAIDE 

Wanting to try somewhere different to eat during my lunch break, my friends mentioned Horner and Pratt.  So without question in my hunger induced state of went for a walk down to East Terrace.  I have walked past this place many times and have not noticed it there!  The upstairs and downstairs areas are an eclectic mix of mismatched furniture from what I think is the 60's and 70's creating a casual retro-hipster feel.

In addition to the food and coffee, Horner and Pratt also has a good range of freshly made juices.  OK, so now to the food!

B.T.T - $14
My friend previously tried this and recommended that I give it a go.  The B.T.T is served on toasted Turkish bread with bacon, haloumi, raw onion, tomato, tabouleh and mayonaisse.  Prior to trying the sandwich I expected that the combination of bacon and haloumi to be too salty and the raw onion to be overpowering.  This was not the case, and I was very pleased.  The bacon and haloumi combination provided the right amount of saltiness and the onion was not even noticeable. Overall, the addition of the tabouleh added an element of freshness to the sandwich which I really enjoyed.  Friends that also tried the B.T.T liked that dish and we were all in agreement that we would visit here again just for this.

After trying the B.T.T, my friends and I decided that we would visit a second time to try some of H&P's other dishes.  Second and third on the menu were the Pulled Pork ($14) and the Chicken Burger ($14).

Pulled pork wrap - $14
The wrap was soft however the pulled pork was a little bland in flavour.  If I am being honest, I expected a lot more from this dish and overall, was a little underwhelmed.

Chicken burger - $14
The Chicken Burger was not really a burger.  As you can see, the picture shows more of a sandwich....and a small one at that (mine was much smaller than the one in the photo which was my friends)! For $14 I expected a lot more.  The chicken is marinated in a yogurt and veggie relish with tzatziki and guacamole.  Again, the flavours in this dish were quite average and I honestly could not taste the condiments identified.  Hopefully I just caught them on a bad day.

Both meals were served with a salad (raw and cold - nothing wrong with that), however taste was lacking.  A little dressing/seasoning would not have gone astray.

Latte - $3.50 and Berry Smoothie - $6
In addition to the meals I had a latte and smoothie - both of which were nice.  The coffee was made well and was not too hot.  The smoothie was not overly sweet and sickly so it was quite enjoyable.

Ambiance:  3.5/5 - Great little lunch spot.  Nice location and a great spot to catch up with friends.
Service:  2.5/5 - Standard service.  Cannot expect any more from a little lunch time location.
Food: 6/10 - Fresh tasting food, points off for the wrap, burger and lack lustre salad.  Having said that...I would go back for the B.T.T!

In total, Mirko gives Horner and Pratt 12/20 chops on the chopping board.
