Birthday at the Brooks of Melbourne

I had my birthday recently and my dear husband wanted to surprise me with a tasty dining experience. As we do not have a babysitter organised yet we had to do a lunch rather than a dinner to celebrate my birthday.

My husband took me to The Brooks of Melbourne. We opted for the city lunch instead of the degustation as my husband could not take a long enough lunch break for the long fine dining lunch.

I started with a bit of sparkling, Tasmanian Arras, in fact Arras ’Cuvee Brut Elite’, NV . A great sparkling, like a champagne.

I have probably mentioned many times but my all time favourite champagne is Pol Roger and the second in the top three is Billecart-Salmon rose champagne. Third place I am not quite sure for which one it goes to there are couple of options competing with each other.

I chose trout for my starter, I love trout and this one was salted and served fresh.

My husband chose a creamy onion soup which was delightful.

For the main I went for a light vegetarian dish.

My husband chose John Dory for his main.

I had a lovely birthday. So relaxing. My daughter was in the daycare and I was just wandering in the city and enjoying my life here, doing a bit of shopping… After the crazy three months I felt like I deserved it. I am living in such a great city and am so glad I have finally time to appreciate it!

PS. Sorry about the dark photos from the Brooks we were in the cellar and it was very difficult to get the light right as I did not have my DSLR with me…
