Lunch @ Matteos

Having finished up early I decided to check in with Elle and see if she was free from lunch. While the answer was yes, finding some place open on Monday proved a little more difficult. Ultimately we decided to go with a tried and tested venue, Matteo's.

For lunch apart from the regular a la carte offering there is also a lunch special menu, 2 courses & a glass for $35. Since some of our favourite dishes were also on the lunch special we've gone for that option.

For starters:

Elle's selection - which is fairly self explanatory. It's a dish full of flavour and using rice noodles adds a really interesting textural element.

I could not go past this dish, I love it when it's on the degustation menu, the only problem is that there is never enough of it!

For mains:

We've both gone for the pie - beautiful flaky pastry surrounds a tasty filling, filled with chicken and chinese sausage, the sauce is rich and voluptuous.

For dessert:

A trio of desserts to share. I'm not a huge fan of the fondant pudding, it's always too large and too rich but this was a very good size. Also felt that the other two desserts helped to tone down the richness of the fondant and each on their own are extremely good desserts.

The details:

533 Brunswick Street, Nth Fitzroy
Phone: 9481 1177

Lunch: Sunday-Friday from noon
Dinner: 7 days from 6pm
