More Melbourne

The best meal of my life so far. If there is such a thing, I think I had a food orgasm over the King Prawns with Goats Cheese Tortellini, Burnt Butter, Raisins and Pine Nuts $32.00.
I have never tasted anything like it. Well a small taste of it when we went to Rockpool Sydney and Mr S ordered this but would only give me the smallest taste. I obviously didn't get the full effect back then because I just couldn't believe the party that was going on in my mouth. It is the most amazing dish I have ever tasted. The goats cheese tortellini was so smooth and silky and the burnt butter sauce was just amazing.

Unfortunately I did not have my camera with me. I was only carrying a small clutch and it just wouldn't fit. So all I have to show you is the bill. Expensive, yes!! But well worth it. We did have a gamble at the casino afterwards and won $150.00 so when you add it all up dinner really only came to $168.50.

I have also never tasted beef like this ever. I could go on and on about how great this meal was but I really think everyone should just go there to taste for themselves. Well done Neil Perry, can't decide if I liked Melbourne Rockpool better than Sydney. Don't think you can compare them really.

On another day we ventured to The Lindt Cafe in Collins Street. We don't have one of these here in Brisbane. I think they also have about 4 of them in Sydney. Mr S ordered a Hot chocolate and the Wimbledon and I ordered a latte and the Opera cake. Mr S, who by the way loves chocolate said that while he enjoyed the hot chocolate, for him it was just a bit rich. My latte was fantastic (haven't had a bad coffee in Melbourne yet). I enjoyed my opera cake but wouldn't rave that much about it. I had a taste of the Wimbledon and actually liked that one better than the one I chose. Mr S loved it.
