When you have a visitor who is a chef and works in a three hatted restaurant in Sydney, is hungry and has high expectations, where do you take them?
There are myriad Melbourne restaurants to choose from but add in a short time frame (it's 6pm and the flight is at 9pm) and a fussy eater and you have a challenge. My dilemma was to find a place of interest that serves great food not too far from the airport (or between the city and airport).
The restaurant has a lovely ambiance and an earthy feel, decorated with interesting artefacts and staff who are happy and friendly. We were immediately impressed by the choice even before the food arrived.
No time for entrées tonight, we needed to eat and leave so we went for the non-vegetarian platter for three. We asked if we needed to order rice or bread; our waiter told us we didn't need anything else and we would basically get a taste of everything on the menu.
The food was great, a tasty selection of chicken, beef, goat, fish, lamb, lentils and salad all served over layers of light and airy bread. Adding to the experience is there are no utensils or plates served. It's a traditional finger food experience.
