trunk

Last night we had dinner at Trunk after reading John Lethlean's great review in Epicure in The Age a couple of weeks ago. What a great space. It was too dark to take a photo of the interior but this is what it looks like in daylight :

The picture above accompanied the Age review. For starters I had salt cod and green chilli fritters:

Jeff had crostini with agrodolce anchovies :

and Georgie had porcini and taleggio arancini :

For the main course I had the special barramundi :

Jeff had the Thursday special - zuppa de pesca:


and Georgie had the rabbit pasta :

We all thought the food and service was very good. However, because the adjoining bar was packed, the noise from there made it very hard to carry on a normal conversation which kind of spoilt the evening.
p.s. the floor tiles in the funky ladies' room spell out the words "without trunk". Puzzling until you learn that the men's spells out "with trunk". Cute.

I'm so jealous! Following Georgie's recommendation, some other Penguin's and I tried to get reservations at Trunk for Saturday night but they were fully booked. Your review makes me absolutely determined to try again soon - the barramundi looks amazing.

(Have been reading your blog for a few weeks now and am a big fan -- I hope winter will inspire you to bake even more!)

Hi Jac!

Yes, you should definitely give Trunk a go - food was terrific.

And G. tells me you are a baker of wonderful goodies yourself!
