It’s been a while since my last post! A few mini breaks, a busy period at work and forgetting to renew some website stuff may have contributed to it…but now we’re back!
Before I went away (you’ll hear about that in a few months), I was invited to try Tazio‘s rebranded top floor, Little Flinders. Funny sidenote – The Adventouriist has always called Flinders Lane, Little Flinders, so someone obviously agrees with her.
Tazio was bustling below for dinner but Little Flinders was still new and quiet for its location. I enjoyed the green bar and retro additions such as the old-school TV.
We started off with some entrees and I was intrigued by the Grilled haloumi with figs and fresh lemon juice. The two surprisingly worked well together especially with the dabs of chutney-like sauce.
On the other hand, the Cured ocean trout with caper berries, watercress, dill crème fraiche was a standard yet classic entree.
For mains, you are able to mix and match classic modern Australian items from various meat, vegetables, salads and sauce. I thought I would try kangaroo for the first time, after hearing recommendations from a friend.
I chose a kangaroo steak with wedges and red wine jus (who needs salad?) The wedges were crispy and generous, the kangaroo a bit tougher and chewier than a regular steak. However, I think the red wine jus went well with it.
The Adventouriist chose an eye fillet with vegetables and bearnaise sauce. A simple meal, although we would have enjoyed a bit more variety in the vegetable option.
Although we were quite full by this time – we were swayed to try dessert because of the deconstructed pavlova with seasonal fruit and cream.
The dessert was plated beautifully (although apparently another chef plates it even better), and the meringue pieces and drizzled honey throughout the piece made for a perfect, light dessert. We definitely did not regret this decision!
If you’re after your own twist on a meal, and some classic modern Australian food, take a look at the Little Flinders menu here.
Little Flinders is located at Level 1, 66 Flinders Lane Melbourne.
Mon’s Adventure was invited as a guest of Little Flinders/Tazio. All opinions are my own.
