Slow roasted leg of lamb is today's wood oven offering. Rubbed with olive oil, lemon juice and oregano with a few garlic cloves pushed into the flesh. Don't let the oven go above 150 Celsius and cook for a tad under 2 hours per kg.

That looks just amazing, and as a slow cooked lamb fan I know it tasted amazing too.

and today (by far the better meal), on my way back to the office aboard my chauffeur driven bus.

I had the prawns + satay plus the barramundi.

Guy next to me exploded both his cherry tomatoes - thankfully getting himself and fellow on the other side. Too late to tech him the art of piercing them gently

Earlier Mother's Day lunch at Donovans - a favourite of mine
Beef Cheek
Delicious as always and a great Melbourne institution.
Looks absolutely fabulous.

(your beef must not have been very big to have such small cheeks. :rolleyes: Maybe it was from a Vealer?)

On a similar subject - it is disappointing when a menu lists lamb shanks, and you only get a single shank.....

The beef cheeks were small but luckily everything else about it was great.

Beef steak with mushroom sauce.

There's also kungpow chicken and some sort of bland prawn dish on the plate.

The beef steak was quite nice and just the way I like it cooked, without herbs and spices.

Dinner last night with @boomy at DoubleTree Melbourne restaurant, with their new menu (forgot to get photo of it :():

Really nice and I’d go back [plus got a free bottle of red wine (Little Leaf) to go with it]

Barramundi with a side of shoestring fries
