Ashkelon is a new cafe and food shop on St George’s Rd opposite Long Play and Malaymas, and I had lunch there with a friend recently. I chose serves of two of the four salads, and she had the socca with kaiserfleisch, scamorza and spinach.
The salads were fantastic, with one containing carrots, chickpeas, beetroot and silverbeet, and the other potatoes, artichokes, cheese, anchovies and pickled zucchini. I preferred the second one. The tart combination of the anchovies, cheese and pickles was delicious.
We then shared a piece of chocolate cake, which was served with lemon curd. The coffee is very good and it’s good to see another new development in the northern end of St George’s Rd. Ashkalon also provides ready made meals to take home and a variety of packaged food and ingredients, such as muesli and cous cous.
