Using local produce to serve French delicacies for all
The sign on the window said "La Bonne Table" which I assumed was French, which meant I then had an interpretation challenge as my poor language choices at school came back to haunt me. But with Google Translate on the smartphone, I soon realise that the English translation is "Good Food". That was all I needed to convince myself to enter.

La Bonne Table has popped up in a former retail warehouse opposite the fire station at 128 Wakefield Street. The restaurant commenced trading in December 2012 and has slowly built up a following achieved on the back of positive customer reviews and minimal marketing. Upon entering there is a feeling of mystique as you enter a warehouse that has minimal windows, high exposed pipes amongst ceilings and scatterings of appropriately placed downlights and candles. I contemplate the romanticism of it all.

The menu is obviously French-European, with choices of tapas, or the more traditional entrée and mains. With a preference of tasting as many delights in this world as I can, I choose a number of items from the tapas menu as well as the deliciously sounding charcuterie platter. The platter arrived first and I wasn't let down. Lavish servings of janmon Serrano, wagyu bresaola, aged chorizo, duck liver parfait, piquillo and sicilian olives are a great way to start the meal.

Croquette


Arriving in a steady procession over the next 45 minutes, we are treated to a cavalcade of French-European delights perfected for an Australian audience. The croquette with the chorizo mash and chevre had a perfect soft texture, while the aubergine tempura had obviously been cooked for seconds - it was warm, yet still retained its softness.

Pork Belly


The Pork Belly was my pick of the dishes. Served with kimchi, prawn and pearslaw, this pork melted in the mouth. Our last dish was the honey glazed king prawn a la plancha, which like the other dishes had been cooked to retain its delicacy and flavours.
