Rouse is packed in between numerous traditional family run businesses on Dunlop street. The interior preserves remnants of old industrial-like furnishings and features, giving it a rather rustic feel. They have really distinct tables and furnishings designed like crates inside and outside the entrance that serves as a useful feature for identification.
They serve a wide variety of cakes ranging from smores, chocolate cakes to cheesecakes. We tried an oreo chocolate cheesecake($8) that was fantastic. The oreo biscuit base was firm and it had two layers of cheese, one of which was mixed with chocolate, creating a unique blend of chocolate and cheese. It was topped with chocolate ganache and raspberries which I love. This was definitely one of the better cheesecakes i had tasted and would highly recommend it.
We also ordered a main: salted egg calamari roll($14.90). It seems like East meets West with the Asian recipe of salted eggs being served with bread in a Western dish. It is basically like what you eat in Chinese zichar, salted egg yolks stir fried in butter with a bit of curry leaves and small red chilli for flavour. This is creatively served with calamari rings on a hot dog bun, accompanied by cassava chips. The salted egg sauce was rich in flavour and went well with the chips. The calamari was soft and tender, with a crispy fried batter that went really well with the salted egg sauce and buttered bread.
It’s worth coming back as they serve a wide range of mains above the usual brunch menu.
