25 Aug Dish, Melbourne
Dish is part of the Royce Hotel, but it’s presentation and menu is a step up from typical hotel restaurants (including the fine-dining prices).
The button mushroom soup with white truffle oil was hearty, creamy and flavoursome. Also ordered was the spaghettini with tiger prawns, crab, garlic, chilli & olive oil.
I ordered the chargrilled spatchcock with truffled soft polenta, king oyster mushrooms and jus gras and had no complaints. The delicate spatchcock meat went well with the polenta and the jus gras complimented rather than competed with the truffle flavour in the polenta. The polenta also soaked up the jus gras, making every mouthful of food a tasty one.
Although my dish was quite good I wasn’t sure it justified its $39 price tag. It was, however, a good location for a nice dinner out.
