Review: Bar Humbug

I was meeting up with my friend T after work for a drink yesterday afternoon.  We did a quick lap of the block around my office looking for an appealing place, and landed at Bar Humbug in Little Bourke St.

Happily for me they have Rekorderlig Cider ($15/500ml), which is a sweet guilty pleasure of mine.  While I’m a big fan of the traditional dry apple ciders, I am also fond of the occasional sweeter cider, like pear or the Rekorderlig Strawberry and Lime. 

They also have Little Creatures Bright Ale on tap ($10/pint), which is what T drank.

I was going out for dinner later so didn’t order any food, however T ordered the Baked cheese quesadillas w guacamole($12).  This came out as 6 quarters of quesadilla with jalapenos and melted cheese inside, and a side pot of guacamole.  While I don’t believe there can ever be enough guacamole served with any dish, the pot was an appropriate size for the amount of quesadilla on the plate.

I’d definitely go here again.  I was tempted by a few things on their dinner menu, and if the quesadillas were anything to go by I’m sure it would be fresh and delicious.  There were plenty of gluten free options on the menu, and the staff seem very knowledgeable about the ingredients in the dishes for people with allergies.
