Traveljunkieindonesia.com – Hi travel junkies! Today I bring you to early dinner at The Colonial Tramcar Restaurant, Melbourne.
The atmosphere is classic luxurious and surprisingly spacious. The service friendly and the decor as inviting as the colonial period these trams reflect.
Since their inception in 1983, the restaurants have become a star attraction and a tourism symbol for Melbourne.
Dining with the Colonial Tramcar Restaurant is not only a culinary delight, but a trip into a little piece of Victoria’s history.
And, here are our early dinner menu:
01). Hummus dip
A smooth blend of chickpea and tahini with a hint of mint, served with crisp lavosh
02). Roasted Red Capsicum Dip
Fresh roasted capsicum blended with Australian cream cheese and tapenade, served with golden baked water crackers
01). Grilled Chicken Breast
Paired with a rosemary and thyme scallop potato, fresh seasonal vegetables finished with a sautéed mushroom jus
02). Victorian Farmed Eye Fillet of Beef
Paired with a rosemary and thyme scallop potato, fresh seasonal vegetables, onion marmalade and a rich red wine reduction
An individual tasting plate of delicate desserts
Eeeeek… Our glasses were never empty and the food was divine – we had the beef and the chicken, and both were perfect.
The service was friendly and we were made to feel special, even though we weren’t celebrating anything as such!
Seeing the city, Alberth Park, St Kilda and South Melbourne from such a vantage point was certainly a novelty; one I would highly recommend.
