Vue De Monde, Melbourne

When I was in Melbourne, I managed to get along to Vue De Monde for lunch. It was really great (:

Bread, and also butter First, there was bread and butter..
Preemptive Strike Amuse Bouche! warm Ham consommé with a ball of melon (which, I’ll have you know, explodes in your mouth with a burst of deliciousness in a way which makes it impossible to not smile); topped with a wafer and greenery-puree
Main #1:  Offaly Cubes of terrine / ox tongue / foie gras; served with dinky bread circles, along with a fruity jam and little piles of spices (which you can’t see). This was on absurdly wide plates which caused the wait-people to dance about shuffling everything around on the table so they’d fit (:
Main #2:  Moooo Seared Wagyu on top of a sweetcorn puree, with salady greens. The noodly thing on the right is made of soy, and apparently made in rubber tubing(!)
Science!
Science! It’s what’s for lunch.
Main #3:  Porkstravaganza Pork and Apples. Whee! There’s belly pork, a galette (I think? – kinda a pate of pork with pastry) and the interestingly textured porkstrands; On the apple front, there’s a thing with peel, a lil apple filled with tasty, and the green sauce was a green apple sauce (as opposed to something vegetably). There’s also a glaze type sauce hanging out that was brought to the table in individual test tubes, and poured over the plates by wait-people. Which was, another interesting little dance.
Melopops This was the course betwixt the savoury and sweet – kinda frozen melon in a fruit jelly of some description.
Dessert #1 This was the first dessert Рstrawberry souffl̩, with a frozen-strawberry-thing on top, with a strawberry powder, which was delicious.
Dessert #2 The second dessert was like a tube of cakey-biscuity, filled with molten chocolate ganache. So tasty.
Petit Fours
Last of all, petit fours.

I’d totally go again; although maybe for dinner next time. Although that will probably involve making dinner reservations before booking flights (:

  1. I visited Vue de monde site. Nice video but the tasty little morsel things are simply not something one actually eats—you didn’t them, did you?—one admires them. <:
