October 30, 2015 The Post Hotel October 30, 2015/ GG A friendly pub in St Kilda, The Post Hotel delights locals with a menu that draws influence from waterholes the world over. The beverage list boasts a selection of great craft beer, a range of local and international red and white as well as a curated list of cocktails. Grilled Hervey Bay scallops with corn puree, crispy prosciutto and truffle oil The scallops were beautifully seared and boasted natural sweetness while the crispy prosciutto added a lovely salinity to the dish. Salt and pepper calamari Tender ribbons of battered calamari were served with flavoursome sweet soy dressing. The calamari was perfectly seasoned and went beautifully with the sauce. Cape Grim beef rib with twice cooked Jerusalem artichoke, chorizo and thyme Pan seared ocean trout with charred fennel, thyme and lemon jus Our favourite dish of the evening, the trout, was perfectly cooked - beautifully seared and pink in the middle. The charred fennel, thyme and lemon jus was a delicious accompaniment. Housemade doughnuts with spiced sugar and chilli chocolate dipping sauce These golden puffs were delicious. Ethereal in texture, the doughnuts were cinnamon-sugar coated and tasted delicious with the decadent chocolate sauce. Chocolate brownie with espresso ice cream The chocolate brownie was a playful and sweet end to our evening. The folks at The Post Hotel have stayed true to the 140 years of its rich history in St Kilda and deliver a modern twist on old fashioned hospitality.
