my little family went on a cruise recently (see previous posts) & in the brochures leading up to the cruise i was excited to read about the 'salt grill by luke mangan'. firstly i will say that...going on a cruise you are surrounded by FOOD! sure you don't have to indulge all the time like some but you do feel like there is a lot of food...(ok that is now off my chest!)...
the on-board kids club allowed us to visit 'salt grill' twice. both experiences were without fault. the service was incredible, the wine choices & attendance impeccable, the food indulgently excellent & the dessert awesome.
on our second visit i took the camera...between us we ordered, entree...tempura oysters...king fish, ginger & eschallot w persian fetta...rare tuna w wasabi dressing & soba noodles...mains...150 days grain fed eye fillet w horseradish, truffle & parmesan fries, mashed minted peas, rocket salad w candied walnuts & pear...grilled grain fed vic lamb cutlets w horseradish...& dessert...meredith dairy sheeps milk yoghurt cheesecake w passion fruit & popping candy + local cheese selection w truffle honey.
all was excellent. nothing to fault...i loved the cheese board served at your table...a copper pot containing the truffle honey + the cheese was perfect at room temperature, ripe, ooozzing & delicious.
we left feeling like we might step out onto a busy city street but instead we sashayed along the deck to our trusty cabin.
