Pure South, Southbank, Melbourne, Australia

Had lunch with some colleagues and a business partner at a restaurant in Southbank that I’d walked past a hundred times but that I’d never eaten at.

Pure South ay Southbank is smallish and overlooks the Yarra.

For entree I had a superb pork belly with shitake mushroom, chinese broccoli and seasame dressing. My colleagues all went the half dozen of Tasmanian oysters.

For the main course, two of us went for Huon Salmon, one a Steak and I opted for roast chicken with asparagus, mushroom and dumplings. We were all happy with our choices.

Rather than dessert we opted (after a little argument) for 2 cheese platters to share which we thought we wouldn’t finish but was so good that we did.

I can’t remember which white wine we chose but it complimented the meal quite nicely.

In all the food and wine was great. My only gripe was with our waitress who interrupted our conversation several times rather than wait for us to finish. Very annoying to be cut off mid sentance,
