The Coventry (Revisited-Invited)

The Coventry located directly across South Melbourne market, making it the perfect spot for brunch after shopping. It has spacious indoor space, comfortable on any weather and also small outdoor spot at the back to enjoy the sunshine when there is one. Their menu is heavily influenced by mediterranean food as well as high quality paddock to plate.







Avocado & Eggs Benedict ($21). I saw their pictures online and I know I want this dish, sadly when mine come, the avocado is not as glorious as the picture I saw. In terms, of the taste I do love the half fresh avocado with perfectly cooked egg on top and generous citrus hollandaise. They also have an options of changing the bacon for salmon, with additional fee. I opted for the raw salmon which I think I might like the bacon more in the end.

Korean Fried Chicken & Waffles ($23). This has been on their menu for quite sometime cause this is my second invitation to The Coventry and last time they also have this. Bourbon and maple syrup dressing on top of the crispy fluffy waffle is what I love the most in this dish. The chicken it self was crunchy but a lil bit burned on some side, inside tender and flavourful.

Prawn Saganaki ($25). This is part of their lunch menu and my husband loves saganaki so he's very excited to have this on the menu. Succulent generous prawns floating in spicy light pomodoro sauce, topped with chorizo as well as abundant cheese. Perfect comfort dish on a cold day.

The owner, Ray arranged a BBQ set meal for me and family on Anzac day. Interior wise, it's bright and modern with young neon vibe. Even the exhaust fan is red and located up high so it won't disturb the view.


Youngs Wine Room (Invited)

Youngs Wine Room is an elegant wine bar. First of all the restaurant is very well located, I took tram from the CBD and get off and it is very close to the tram stop. It's very crowded when we arrived, however the front staff who handles the guest wait list is very friendly and welcoming.

We ordered a lot just because everything in menu look so tempting, we were given an allowance but we went overboard at paid the rest out of pocket. We start off with ordering a fruity and full bodied red wine. It was very smooth and sweet too.

Brussels sprouts with sucuk sausage, egg and manchego. It was very nice, the sausage is salty yet perfect to have it with the brussels sprouts. The egg balance both taste. The size of it is great for sharing between 2 people.

Tartare wagyu beef, isot & marash pepper and cos. The presentation is something to look for. The tartare wagyu is very fresh and you eat it with the lettuce, making it fresh and crunchy. You could hear your friend crunching it while eating this.

Salmon ora king salmon, house cured, citrus and cucumber. It's one of my favourite dish in general. The salmon is very fresh. The citrus plays a big part in making it much more tasteful and just look at the pink colour.

Whole market fish, John Dory New zealand with lemon and butter.

It is the fish of the day that made my day. this is my favorite dish. I would recommend having this for one. The staff would unbone this whole John Dory for you., it is a presentation. The skin is very crispy yet the fish meat is perfectly cooked, it is very tender. This dish wont bore you because the sauce , lemon butter sauce is very yummy. It goes well with the fish. Would really recommend this dish to people.

Broccollini with macadamia puree. Looks very mysterious. I never ordered a broccolli before other than asian restaurant. However, this brocollini is a surprise for me. It is very nice. I Love the macadamia puree, it makes the brocolli special, add a lot of taste to it. I would now dare to order broccolli in a restaurant if its as good as this one.

Cheesecake is always a word that has a nice ring on my ear. its is very nice, the fig goes well with the cheesecake. The size is not that big, great for one person., so it's best to order more of it cause it's delicious.

Few things to add on, I talk few things to the owner and one of the staff, what I found out is that they are really proud of the team and said that they have a great team. And both of them is very passionate about the food.  They are all very friendly too, not just to me but to the table beside us too.
All of the actions in the kitchen are in house actions. They are open for lunch then they close midday and the re open for evening.


The ambiance is very elegant, despite the crowds, you could still hear the music background and talk to your friends. The restaurant big and spacious too. It shows all the drinks on display and the kitchen is an open kitchen. The fishes are also on display on ice, so you know its fresh.

The restaurant is very spacious. I like it the way it designed, you could see the restaurant is sort of divided into couple of sections. I really like this one below
