The new Village Gold Class opened on June 3rd and is part of the massive $370 million redevelopment that will make Pacific Werribee (the old Werribee Plaza) a premier regional destination for retail and lifestyle experiences.
The new Gold Class has two theatres with luxurious electronic reclining seats, super-wide wall-to-wall screens and the latest in digital picture and audio, yet all in an intimate setting.
Gosh have things changed. How about Tasmanian salmon on Lebanese lentil salad, pumpkin and chicken tagine, fish tacos (snapper, coleslaw and chipolata mayonnaise) or slow smoked Memphis style baby back pork ribs with BBQ dipping sauce?
And the desserts are really special. I will have to wait until next-time for this experience, but I heard the rocky road popcorn (dark and white chocolate, caramel popcorn, melt-in-your-mouth marshmallow, cashews, pecans and sea salt) was simply amazing.
I did however have the lemon cake, which is apparently a low gluten option. This was a rich lemony cake topped with a coconut white chocolate truffle (that had to be tasted to be believed) and raspberry coulis. Thoroughly memorable.
Lindt chocolate also gets a grand appearance on the menu. There are Lindt inspired profiteroles filled with chocolate ganache and fresh strawberries and sprinkled with Lindt flakes. Or how about a Lindt inspired thick shakes, such as Lindt peanut butter and banana, Lindt cappuccino which you can add Kahlua to if you wish and Lindt salted caramel with chocolate flakes, caramel syrup, sea salt and vanilla ice cream.
