A couple of weeks ago the We Know Melbourne team were invited to taste the new menu at Meat Fish Wine. Located right in the heart of QV, next to their sister restaurant Red Spice QV, the restaurant and wine bar are known for their extensive wine collection (featuring over 500 wines) and top tasting dishes.
The tasting was an intimate setting, sitting down on an outside table with a couple of other well known Melbourne foodies, including @topfoodmelbourne. Each dish that was brought out was given the rundown by Chef David Schofield, explaining the detail that went into cooking it to perfection.
Some of the dishes we got to try include:
Cheese damper with bush tomato jam
Wagyu Rump Cap, Roasted Shallot Puree
Normally not a huge carnivore, we found the wagyu so tender and we couldn’t help go back for seconds.
Snapper, Smoked Cauliflower, “Noir Cracker” & Sea Foam
Char Grilled Brussel Sprouts, Lardo and Mustard Crumbs
If you are still scarred from the way your Mum used to boil your brussel sprouts and make you eat them without any garnishings or condiments, this dish will convert you to a sprout lover hands down.
The creaminess of this dish made it one of our clear favourites of the night….. still drooling on the screen thinking of it.
Hot Chocolate Soufflé, Lime Streusel, Raspberry Sorbet
A stand out dessert dish! The sweetness of the white chocolate inside was perfectly complemented by the raspberry flavours for a foodgasm in your mouth.
