Dinner @ Matteo's

Once again we're off to dinner with Elle and Al but this time we've gone for a reliable favourite, Matteo's.

As always we've opted for the degustation.

Teriyaki glazed baby squid stuffed with sea eel, rice crusted tofu, pickled plum and bonito mayonnaise
Petuna ocean trout tataki, yuzu miso sauce, Yarra Valley salmon roe
Carpaccio of Hiramasa Kingfish, prawn remoulade, shiso sauce

To Drink: 2008 Clonakilla Riesling, 2008 Babich Black Label Sauvignon Blanc

The first course is usually some type of variation on this grouping of flavours which is such a great way to begin. It's clean and refreshing and the Hiramasa Kingfish would go down as one of our all time favourites.
