Mr Smith was staying on the edge of China Town in Melbourne and after a long day of running and walking it was time to head off for dinner. Luckily one of the best restaurants in town was just opposite the hotel, find out about Mr Smith’s visit to Longrain…
The appetite had been built up during the day, so Mr Smith was in need of a great meal, without going too far. This was easy by popping over the road from the hotel and heading to Longrain.
A nice early dinner and once again Mr Smith was at the bar area, which has to be the way to go for a single diner. Such a great way to chat to people and the staff were amazing. Watching them make the cocktails and a view in to the kitchen was good.
Anyway, the food. What a tough decision to make, but it was made a lot easier by being told they do half portions. Great, so that meant Mr Smith could order more of the things he fancied.
It started with a beautiful and fresh Betel Leaf dish, which was followed by what was a very large (for a half) Filled Egg Net with pork and prawns, also a Caramalised Pork Hock and a vegetarian Gaeng Curry.
Wow, that was a lot of food. Were the eyes too big for the stomach? Never! It all went! The problem was working out which of the gorgeous dishes to eat. It ended up being a bit from one, a bit from another and just enjoying all of the complex flavours.
A great meal, good relaxed service and a perfect early evening for Mr Smith, before heading out for a walk and more exploring
