We loved tasting our way through the menu.
To start the grilled local half shell scallops were beautiful. Exceedingly fresh, the natural sweetness of the scallops shined through and was highlighted by the accompanying green chilli and basil butter, spring onions and a dash of lime.
The dish of tempura zucchini flowers stuffed with ricotta cheese and served with crunchy hazelnuts atop luscious tomato fondue was similarly delicious. The batter encasing the zucchini flowers was ethereally light and crisp while the stuffing was rich and flavoursome. The dish was a delight to eat.
For mains, the Yarra Valley 200g chargrilled eye fillet steak was a crowd pleaser. Displaying a mastery in the manner the steak was cooked, the inch thick cut of eye fillet steak was cooked perfectly from end to end. A light searing ensured that the steak was lined with a thin crisp layer packed with caramelised beef flavour. We loved the accompaniments of crispy goose fat salted potatoes and rich red wine jus.
The Pistachio crusted 3 point Millawara lamb rack was perfection. The lamb was roasted to a tender and juicy pink and was exceedingly flavoursome and worked wonders with the accompanying mint chutney.
Our evening concluded on a sweet high. Whatever you do, do not go past the Baked chocolate chip and peanut butter cookie. Think grilled chocolate brownie served in a skillet topped with oozy marshmallow, a generous scoop of chocolate ice cream and crunchy, salty pretzels. It’s a thing of beauty.
Mister Munro pleases with modern, delicious dining in the heart of the CBD - Perfect for an intimate dinner for two, a hearty feast with the family or over a celebratory meal with big groups.
