Yering Station @ Yarra Valley 
3rd-Jan-2010 09:33 pm
So much can be found about Victoria's first vineyard, Yering Station, located in the 'heart' of the Yarra Valley only one hour drive from Melbourne.

The grounds it spreads over and the restaurant overlooks is gorgeous, even with the blinding sunshine and browned flats. It suits the restaurant's minimalistic white interior, but it is the food that takes centrestage - brilliantly presented on simple white crockery and brilliantly cooked to perfection.

The red capsicum pesto is so delicious.
They will even whip up a fresh jar for you upon request for AUD$8.50.

AUD 33 /-

The best dish at the table!
The snapper is so sweet and drool-worthy.
edaburi did extremely well with her choice.

AUD 34 /-

The SO's choice and the day's special
I have never tasted a more succulent roo,
juicy, flavorful and tender to chew.

AUD 35 /-

bankevair's lunch and some of the best lamb ever
Only problem is there wasn't more of it

AUD 34 /-

Mine mine mine and all mine.
And so good in every bite.

This tortellini is the largest one I have ever seen.
The most pronounced flavour was the lemon and unfortunately not the scallop.
Nonetheless, the pasta itself was perfectly cooked.

AUD 15 /-

AUD 34 /-

Shared between bankevair and edaburi,
this selection has a little of everything:
sorbet, fondant, chocolate lava cake, meringue and raspberry mousse.

Totally worth the drive down, which we had edaburi to thank for.

It is a pity you didn't manage to visit the restaurant there. The food is amazing and you would've enjoyed yourself immensely.

What's kangaroo taste like?

Hmmmm... I guess the best way to describe roo is it's similar to beef in colour and texture, though a little stringier due to the lower fat content.

Taste-wise, it has a gamey-ness that some might akin to somewhere between lamb and reindeer.

Okay, I've had enough experience to guess where you're putting it. ^^

Sounds melodious like a poem, I couldn't get it out of my head for a few minutes xD.
