only serves the finest, tastiest & steaming hotbroths
I sometimes like to, just for the fun of it, instigate reactions from people by saying something bizarre. And this time around its gonna be, "I've just been to Brothl"! For the discerning listener, I may not have been grammatically correct, because I didn't use an article (a, in this case) before Brothl. The effect is however the same.

Clever, eh!?

And my opinion is that, outlandish names stick; a simple yet nifty marketing gimmick - planting a thought in your head.

Enough said, and heard! But this restaurant is called Brothl for a reason, yes; their specialty is in serving broths. Broth made from fruit skin, vegetables, chicken, and beef bones; they have a very interesting menu to say the least. You can choose a variety of stuff to add to your broth or otherwise go with the chef's recommended combination broth.

And that's not it all, what impressed me immensely is their business model which is both sustainable and eco-friendly. They source their ingredients or up cycle them from some of the most upmarket restaurants and local organic vendors in Melbourne. Sustainability just got a lot cooler.

My wife ordered the Chef's recommended beef broth. I chose the chicken broth to go with poached chicken, fermented brown rice, and miso. They also keep a small bottle of tamari gluten free soy sauce and chilli paste. The broths were both good and the ambience befits a soup place! For me, a playlist that featured Number of the Beast topped my experience.

We also tried the ginger flavoured kombucha and cappuccino in almond milk. It sure was an exotic dinner of sorts!

But I must add that it may not everyone's "bowl of broth"; a customer did walk out without ordering after reading the menu!
