Hearing about Melbourne's Vue De monde, i really really wanted to experience this dining adventure myself, and what an adventure it was. Our degustation lunch lasted 4 hrs, and we were left completely satisfied and really glad that we were able to visit Vue while we were in Melbourne.
From where we were seated (furtheset away opposite the kitchen) we could sort of see what the chef's were preparing as there is a mirror right above thier workstation. Being so far away though we couldnt see too well.. but i think it's a really nice way for customers to see what goes on while we are waiting for our food.
I wish i had blogged about this when i still had everything fresh in my mind.. but here is the eye candy, and a few words to read. Enjoy!
Potato chips served with sourcream - this was so addictive!
smoked eel, apple, white chocolate
buttermilk, apple, fennel, flowers
blue fin tuna
whiting, summer vegetables
The bread was still warm when they gave it to us, i tried my best not to fill up on the bread and butter so i think i only had 3 pieces.
marron on a hot river stone, spanner crab sandwich, brown butter emulsion
fried duck egg, toasted breads, asparagus, truffle
blackmore wagyu beef cheek, radish, dill, caper, anchovy sauce
frozen lolly, popping candy, housemade lemonade
This was a really fun dessert to picc at and eat, felt like a kid again eating pop rocks~
What a pretty site! Not a huge fan of pavlova, i enjoyed the rehydrated strawberries and pineapple pieces.
This was my favourite dessert! Despite being so full, our stomachs automatically made room for the few last dishes of our extravagant meal.
The insides was actually chocolate mousse! So delicate to pick up and eat, i wish there were a few more pieces to enjoy hehe.
passionfruit licorice, strawberry sauce & sherbert
The service here was spot on, all our waiters were polite, explained in great detail about every dish they served us, and really made the whole experience so enjoyable.
I would definitely come back here again, probably not every single time i go to Melbourne (poor wallet as this 4 hour lunch cost us $250!)
I hope you all enjoyed my post of photo's and sorry for not writing much but it's been a little while since i was there!
