Boasting some of the best views, food, wine and service that Melbourne has to offer, Taxi Kitchen has established itself as one of Melbourne’s prime dining destinations.
The menu encourages sharing and showcases fresh and local produce as hero ingredients to create communal and fun dishes.
The Sake washed tuna, soybean pesto and daikon salad were one of the highlights from our visit. The soybean pesto dressing was refreshing and flavoursome without being overpowering, thereby preserving the integrity of the beautifully fresh, delicate slices of tuna.
Another memorable from the menu is the dish of Candied pork, coconut salad and red nam jim. This dish was a triumph, both in terms of texture and flavour. The tender slices of beef were dressed beautifully with an expertly judged blend of textures and herbs.
Desserts at Taxi are wonderful examples of restrained elegance - the Dark chocolate parfait was decadent and exquisitely textured while the Passionfruit Souffle was picture perfect, beautifully light and fluffy. Each made for an indulgent end to a wonderful meal.
Taxi Kitchen impresses with smart, contemporary dining that boasts a fun, approachable and communal flair.
