Brooklyn Depot it's clearly inspired by Old Brooklyn. They currently have four locations all around Australia; Surfers Paradise (QLD), South Bank (QLD), Surry Hills (NSW) and Melbourne CBD (VIC). Melbourne location strategically located in the heart of Melbourne CBD.

I visited Brooklyn Depot on a Sunday lunch time. I really like the interior, they have bar stools, booth, lounge area and open bar. They basically have everything with a splash of red and I started with Cookie Monster- Blueberries, Ice Cream, milk, cream cheese, whipped cream, cookie crumble ($8).

Cheeseburger Empadas - Homemade empanadas made with grass fed beef, American cheese, pickles, onion, fried crispy & served with Depot special sauce ($16). This empadas have a strong resembles taste with cheese burger especially with the depot sauce.

Chicken n’ Waffles - Sweet red velvet ‘bubble style’ waffle topped with crispy southern fried chicken pieces, served with maple cream syrup and flavoured butter Or served “Dutch Pennsylvania” w/ gravy instead of syrup at no extra cost ($22). The waffle is bright yet it needed to be a lil bit crispier even though they taste nice but the fried chicken needed a lil bit more seasonings. I do enjoyed the maple syrup.

French Toast Grilled Cheese - Thick cut sweet French toast grilled with cheese and served with a side of maple syrup ($15). I want more cheese in this dish. Cheese and maple syrup is a classic sweet and savoury partner that I love.

BBQ Pork Ribs - Spice rubbed sticky pork ribs in our classic smoky sweet BBQ sauce served with Depot slaw ($36). Comes in two size; half and whole. I want the pork ribs to be slightly more tender and sweeter than it would be perfect.

EAT, PIE, LOVE - Freshly made baked sweet apple pie served 'a la mode' with vanilla bean ice cream, salted caramel sauce and crushed pecans ($9). This dessert is the highlight of our meal.  Super crumbly tart with abundant baked aromatic apple and creamy ice cream. Simply yum!

I love the venue, it would be perfect for larger group and functions. The bright red and decoration is fun, young and modern. Top of with friendly service and pretty quick service as well. Yes, Brooklyn Depot is officially arrived in Melbourne.
