Groove Train (Revisited)

Location: Level 3, Melbourne Central
Cuisine: Modern Australian

Groove to the Caesar salad: pesto croutons, crispy pancetta, poached egg & parmesan cheese

There wasn't quite enough dressing on the salad, but it was just what I was after, something small to tide me over since I wasn't quite hungry yet, and after a massive seafood platter yesterday, I wasn't in for eating a lot. Bacon bits were crisp, smokey and full of flavour, the lettuce leaves were crisp and fresh, and the pesto croutons were amazing. It was like biting into mini cubes of crunchy garlic and herb bread. The meal would have tasted much better had I added the grilled chicken, but as I wasn't hungry, the size was perfect!

What the others got:

Smoked salmon salad: mixed lettuce with chilled green beans, potato, baby spinach, wood fired zucchini, tossed in a whole grain mustard mayonnaise

Warm Lamb & Cous Cous Salad: tender lamb fillets placed on a fruit & walnut filled cous cous stack, garnished with cucumber yoghurt

Greek salad: fresh fetta, black olives, garden tomatoes, cucumber, cos lettuce & vinaigrette

Fried Calamari: lightly floured & fried, garnished with salad, tartare sauce, served with chips

Service was very attentive and the waitresses were very patient with our orders. The food came out on time and they didn't mind that we had seated ourselves on the farthest table outside in the walkway. As a frequent customer, I think I will be back again soon.

Overall Impression: 8.5/10
