The Stables of Como

Posted by Unknown on Thursday, October 23, 2014 with No comments
Nestled deep in the Como House and Gardens in South Yarra, The Stables of Como is a breath of fresh air, offering city-goers an escape from the frenzied Melbourne city lifestyle. Blending the best of the past and the present, The Stables is utterly enchanting where elegance is met with a touch of country rusticity.

Skinny Flat White

Slow Braised Beef Cheek

The slow braised beef cheek was dark, packed full with flavour and meltingly tender. Together with a smooth, snowy white cauliflower puree, the dish altogether felt quite heavy for brunch. The pickled mushrooms were a relief from the richness, though unluckily did not tickle my pickle.

Chunky Chips with Aioli

I went the extra mile and ordered a side of carbs. I love chips, and anything potato really and these were no exception. I inhaled these chubby little things, making sure to chunky dunk each and every chip in blissful aioli.

Banana Hotcake  

On the other end of the table, my friend enjoyed a sweeter number, a gorgeous dish of banana hotcake with maple mascarpone, fresh banana, bursts of berries and an addictive pistachio praline. With her permission of course, I nibbled and poked at the dish. I found the hotcake rather parched of moisture, crumbly and well, let’s just say Top Paddock has spoilt me. 

The Stables of Como is a whole new cafe experience and one that I would recommend if you find yourself in the area. Taking a leisurely stroll through the gardens post brunch and soaking in some much needed vitamin D, we left feeling calm and relaxed. An enjoyable way to spend a lazy Sunday.
