Lunch @ Enoteca Sileno

Time for our Italian fix.

As always we begin with an assortment of assaggini

Assaggini of the day - pork tongue with mustard fruit, Prosciutto San Daniele with parmigiano and kingfish sashimi

Paalo ordered the Venison loin with braised vegetables and local Apollo Bay Truffles. These are some of the best local truffles we've enjoyed - highly aromatic with a good depth of flavour

I go the simple route and enjoy a traditional Veal Costoletta - crumbed veal rib eye

There's also time to enjoy some cheese - gorgonzola and tallegio

and to follow dessert:

I have the Diplomatica con cremosa al cioccolato - chocolate and nut cake served with soft dark chocolate cream. The cake was dense and soft and quite rich.

Paalo has a much lighter option - Tortino di cioccolato al caffee colante - a soft-centered coffee and dark chocolate pudding.
