Vault Cafe Bar Restaurant (Invited)

Vault Cafe Bar Restaurant is located near Yarraville station and right on the centre of the busy yet classic Yarraville Village. Situated in a heritage listed building, used to be the State Savings Bank of Victoria. Angela the new oner for the past one year has taken over the place and done some renovation as well as launching their new ranges menu with a new chef.

I was invited down Zomato and Angela to have a taste of their brand new menu. I went in on a wet Friday night and Angela was not present. The staff was confuse and don't know anything about my appointment, I was ask to wait at the bar for around 15-20 minutes until I asked to be seated on the table and take a look at the menu cause I was so hungry. Finally after that, the staff asked to the chef back in the kitchen and apparently they already pre arrange the food for us. We are very confuse but we decided to get on with the dinner. The restaurant it self features extra high ceilings, beautiful fittings and open kitchen. They also have a brand new renovated courtyard at the back and front of the restaurant complete with umbrellas, blankets, heaters and also with a total of 3 big screens around which mean they are hosting all the big games night.

The appetiser come straight away; Sticky Duck - sambal and crispy shallots. This is their brand new dish and it's not even on the menu yet. The duck was super tender and has a good sweetness in it with a lil bit spiciness at the end.

Special of The day - Sesame Crusted Salmon. The whole salmon was covered in sesame seeds, the presentation it self was intriguing. The salmon was a bit over cooked even though the skin was quite crunchy and the sauce was yummy.

Grilled Lamb Cutlets - baby spinach, broad bean, baby beetroot salad, crushed skin chats, parsley, aioli ($27.9). This is definitely the highlight of the night. The lamb it self was tender with minimal lamb smell which I highly appreciate. The potatoes has a golden crunchy skin with a soft centre and tasty sauce. Love it.

Chocolate Lava Cake - vanilla ice cream. The chocolate lava cake was rich with goey centre, perfect classic match with the vanilla ice cream but I just wish more of the goey centre.

The service was a bit confusing at the beginning but when Angela arrived everything is back on the track. She is such a nice lady, she give me tours around the places and I can't wait until the vault room renovation is finish.
