Restaurant Review: Misty's Diner

Location: 103 High St Prahran
Phone: 03 9510 1959
Link: http://www.mistysdiner.com.au/
Cuisine: American
Overall Impression: 6/10

Misty's Diner is proudly American. A cheerful figure, you can spot Misty quite easily at the diner making sure patrons are getting enough food and having a good time.

 Looking through the menu, J, R and I couldn't go pass the chilli fries and wings to start.
 Bucket of wings
A bucket of buffalo chicken wings with: buffalo sauce, ranch or bleu cheese, celery sticks, your choice of mild, spicy, or po'man's cocaine sauce.
Chili Fries
Served with onions, Mexican cheese & homemade chili con carne with your choice of meat or vegetarian & your choice of mild, spicy or po'man's cocaine sauce.

This is seriously delicious heart-attack causing food. Greasy, crunchy and packed full of cheesy goodness the chilli fries and wings are to die for.

The celery sticks are served with contempt. The lie  lifeless on the plate, staring back at you reminding you of what you should perhaps be eating instead. But J, R and I are not easily distracted. The sauce served beside the celery sticks are dipping sauces for the wings. And these definitely add to the All American goodness of those crispy flavoursome wings.

 Baked Roast Beef
Sliced roast beef served open-face on white bread with mashed potatoes, gravy and veggies. Bring on the 1950's!

Our next course is the baked roast beef. The beef was surprisingly tender and cooked very well.  The mashed potatoes are well seasoned and luscious. Although a little rough around the edges, this is certainly a hearty dish that tastes like it was made with a lot of love.
Misty's American style Burger
American cheese, sauteed onions, lettuce, tomato, bacon, American pickles, egg & Misty's special sauce

More vegetables served with contempt!
 R couldn't resist choosing a few classics.
Pumpkin Pie
Pecan Pie

The pecan pie was a winner. It had a beautiful pie crust and the filling was deliciously dense, moist and had just the perfect amount of sweetness. The ice cream on both the pies tasted a little strange though - it was quite foamy and lacked density.
Certainly a great American diner that is worth a visit.
