Picnic on Toorak (Invited)

Saturday, December 09, 2017 Sharon Halim 0 Comments

Picnic at Toorak is located very close to South Yarra Station, at Toorak Road. Full of natural lights from the big window. The cafe has long table that can accommodate big group and is family friendly as well.

What we ordered: Shakshuka - baked eggs cooked in rich tomato sauce, cannellini beans, grilled vegetables served in hot pan with sourdough. Instead with chorizo we asked the chef if it is possible to make it vegetarian instead since my friend who accompany me is a vegetarian. He happily offered to add mushroom instead in the shakshuka and we just couldn’t be much happier. The sourdough was toasted and drizzled with olive oil on the side. The tomato sauce was very rich but not too sour and goes really well with the mild sweetness from the veggies inside. Such a warm, hearty and filling dish. Not forget to mention the beautiful presentation that is totally instagram worthy.

Wagyu beef street meat - Grilled wagyu beef patty with sesame brioche bun with fresh lettuce, tomato, gherkins, swiss cheese and onion rings served with hand cut chips. It is actually a tall stacked burger and I need to destroy the beautiful presentation to eat them. The overall taste the burger bun is a bit sweet compared to what you usually would expect from a burger. The beef patty was grilled well and the texture was not dry. Oh and the sauce served for the chips - truly the star.

Buttermilk hotcakes - Salted pine nut and almond praline, orange blossom, caramelised berries, vanilla mascarpone and pure canadian maple syrup. Truly beautiful plating, the 2 hotcakes stacked on top of the generous caramelised berries jam and syrup. When you expect it to be too sweet due to the amount of the syrup, the berries actually not too sweet and compliments really well the mascarpone and the orange blossom in the hotcakes. I truly enjoy this dish.

The foods that we ordered come out after around 20-25mins. You might need to consider the foods that you will order if you are in hurry. But if you’re not, like me, just enjoy the coffee or fresh juice while you wait.
