Having spent a couple of hours exploring the Wallace and Gromit exhibition at ACMI and keeping out of Melbourne's extreme heat we decided it was time to have lunch. Without evening leaving the building we decided to give ACMI cafe a try. The comfy booths and menu won us over.
I ordered the Citrus gin cured ocean trout with crisp egg, celeriac hash, apple, brined beets, horseradish creme and nasturtium.
What is nasturium? I guessed it might be some sort of herb, well, it's a flower that is obviously edible.
The smoked trout was infused with a gin tonic and my favourite part of the dish was the cripsy, crunchy celeriac hash.
Was impressed by the quality and presentation of the food, highly recommend stopping here for breakfast or lunch to refuel before or after an exhibition at ACMI.
