On one hot hot hot Saturday, we strolled across to South Wharf for brunch.   We have been to The Sharing House a couple of times now, so we thought we’d try something different.  The Bridge South Wharf looked pretty nice, so we decided to brunch there.

Up next, we ordered a soft shell crab salad to share $19.  The tempura crabs were juicy and not oily at all, which was perfect.  The salad though was a disappointment.  Not only did it not go well with the soft shell crab, it was full of leafy parts of celery pieces, which I am sure people normally chuck away.  😦

The second last dish was the duck rillettes $13.  I don’t mind rillettes, and this tasted OK.

Overall, The Bridge South Wharf was OK.  There were some highlights like the tempura crab (but not the salad), tuna tartare and the seared scallops, but sadly there were quite a number of shared plates that were simply mediocre.  6/10
