We took the stylish Honda HR-V for a cruise into the Tweed Valley to taste the quality fare at Potager – A Kitchen Garden
The Honda HR-V is not what you’d call a smooth ride, it’s more of an elevated glide along any road surface. Mo’ Potholes, Mo’ Problems? Not the case with the HR-V. It was a bit of a drizzly Sunday so we took the mini-SUV to the cosy restaurant Potager – A Kitchen Garden, a local favourite located in Carool, NSW.
The smart entry feature means no fishing for keys, and the inviting aroma of premium leather upholstery hits you as you open the door. With the seat warmers on, and Spotify playlist selected, the nimble HR-V manoeuvered us safely up the windy roads into the picturesque Tweed Valley.
We arrived to the sight of seafood paella steaming on an outdoor fire, and a welcoming atmosphere of warmth, laughter and sangria. With our hands firmly wrapped around a cup of Zeta’s Coffee (grown at the nearby boutique coffee farm Wirui Estate) we selected a bevy of share dishes from the thoughtfully crafted menu.
A few Stone & Wood beers (for my passenger), stuffed calamari, croquettas, meatballs, garlic mushrooms and hand cut chips later, with appetites satisfied we were back in the HR-V for the glide home.
This smart little car has some amazing safety features, like the blind-spot camera on the passenger-side mirror which is automatically activated when your left indicator is flicked on. The multi-angle rearview reversing camera makes backing in and out of tight spots a breeze, and the lane departure warnings let you know when you’re drifting off course. The auto-headlights adjust automatically at night with high-beams activating at the right times, and dimming when the smart SUV detects on-coming traffic.
