*Good News - Charcoal Lane has now got their license!*
While Charcoal Lane still unfortunately doesn't have their liquor license but there's been some interesting changes to the menu.
For lunch, there's now a sharing menu - smaller sized dishes that you can share and here are the dishes we selected:
It's 10 out of 10 for presentation, just love the wooden peg. The pickled vegetable salad is housed inside a package wrapped with the cured wagyu and the peg keeps it all together.
On the left is the wildfire king salmon, beautifully cooked, presented with a slice of crisp skin on top. On the right are rounds of sesame seed coated and barely seared yellowfin tuna served atop a seaweed salad - I could happily eaten all of this plate.
A lovely example of tartare using wallaby instead of beef - well seasoned, the wallaby wasn't gamey or strong, it just tasted like really good beef. The perfectly runny quail eggs were a treat.
The tempura was light and crisp as you would expect, the king prawns, sweet and juicy.
For dessert, we kept with the sharing theme and opted for the Dessert Selection:
These are smaller versions of the 5 desserts offered on the menu.
We were impressed after our first visit and this visit reinforces that opinion - if you've yet to visit, what is keeping you?
