I went here with the girlies for dinner since I’ve been hanging to come here. It’s decor is very Melbourne where it is unique and very casual scenery with the brick walls and paintings on the walls. We decided to get a few dishes to share (let’s face it, everyone loves trying different dishes) and I ended up choosing the eggnet filled with pork, prawns, peanuts and caramelised coconut. To be honest it didn’t live up to its expectations. It was fresh but the flavours were too strong. There wasn’t any balance at all.

Next on the menu was the caramalised pork hocks (no photos coz we devoured it and the girlies were getting annoyed…with me LOOOL). I found these to be too sweet.
The stir fried petuna trout with chilli jam was also disappointing (Longrain, I waited for so longgggg). It was very spicy (hence the chilli) and it was also too sour.

Finally I ordered DESSERT (got to eat it all by my lonesome….) and it sounded amazing on the menu, condensed milk, coffee, ice cream…however, it too was disappointing…
Longrain, I was so excited when you opened shop in Melbourne since you were Sydney born and bred. It took me forever to try you, in the end, I was disappointed and the flavours were too intense and I didn’t enjoy you at all…such a shame
