Lunch @ Church Street Enoteca

Since we're here at Lunch and there are no problems with light I thought I'd grab a snap of the dining room. At night it looks prettier but it's very hard to photograph.

At lunch there are a couple of options - a fixed price, limited menu and the regular a la carte menu. Our dishes are from the a la carte.

Wild Mushrooms, chanterelles, local morels, trompettes, peas, organic garlic, warm egg yolk

This is so deserving of at least two photos just to admire that absolutely gorgeous soft egg yolk. The whole combination just works so well I'm hard pressed to decide what I like most about it.

Grilled smoked ox tongue salad with sweetbread fritelli
Paalo's choice was one of the daily specials. Thick slices of smoky ox tongue were perfectly grilled - the smokiness adding a wonderful aspect to the dish.

For mains:

Penne Rigate with Queensland Tiger Prawns, Roasted Baby Roma tomatoes, chilli, garlic, torn basil
This is the entrée size - a pleasant touch of heat from the chilli, not too much to overpower the juicy prawns. The sauce well reduced with ripe, rich tomato flavour. Keep some bread handy to mop up that sauce.

Saffron risotto with chorizo and Jamon

Paalo also went for an entrée size - this was another daily special. Upfront flavour of saffron well balanced with the chorizo.
