Lumi part 2....
Lumi - amazing, wonderful food as usual. Celebrated the Bourke Road deal. Beautiful Alsace Trimbach Riesling and an ok Grant Burge 2004 Shiraz. The Chawanmushi was Kathryn’s favourite and mine was the Agnolotti pasta and the toothfish was brilliant whilst the wagyu beef was incredible - marinated 3 days and melt in your mouth - needed nothing else with it, just amazing beef on its own - see next entry for the beef etc.

Sepia continues. After the last lunch we had here was un-memorable, this meal was wonderful. Vue de Monde still No.1 for us but this is still excellent.
Sepia for Kathryn’s birthday. Beautiful, amazing meal. Staff were wonderful and seating in the lounge was fantastic. Early dishes of the tuna and oysters were a favourite. Only issue was the sauce on the marron - which was a late entry anyway as we swapped out our duck breast for it. Be careful of the cocktails - $40 each!!

Beautiful desserts at Kazuki’s. the sorbet with Rocquefort cheese was great.
Kazuki’s at Daylesford. Went to visit the artist doing Kathryn’s nude renaissance painting for her birthday. Beautiful area and the food was wonderful! One of the best degusts we have had for a while. Bottle of 2007 basket press certainly helped with the lamb and dessert. Alsace Pinot Blanc was very nice and the negronis one of the best we have had. Favourites were the lamb, the salmon / spanner crab and the desserts. Snapper a bit over cooked. The nori, sake, squid ink butter was beautiful, as was the glassware from Japan - Kumra.
