This is one of those places that you can expect plate-throwing action with food in gigantic portions. I've always missed the broken rice in Melbourne, but this plate of rice is not broken. Fail!
Nevertheless, the Vietnamese pho here still tasted good, especially on a chilly evening. But they were not really as great as the ones we had before. Maybe we should have just headed for Richmond, where Vietnamese food is supposedly more authentic.
This was the Vietnamese Spring roll. You wrap it with fresh lettuce. This never fails to please us!
Vietnames rolls in rice paper wrap to be dipped with sesame dip.
It has certainly grown in size and variety. This is the coffee counter.
Then the almighty cakes part. The following is for selling off the rack for some who forget to order a birthday.
The gelato bar.
Choc fondue on display. If you drink from it, you'd probably get a nose bleed & experience a bloody volcanic erruption of the acne kind on your face.
I really don't know but it could just be me. All the cakes look very professional (I wouldn't be able to make cake decors like that) but seriously I was not that impressed. I mean they all taste pretty good and definitely better than Starbucks, Coffee Bean and Secret Recipe put together.
Maybe my tongue is really jaded when it comes to cakes. I have this bad habit of figuring out what's inside something that I'm eating. So if it's too easy, I'm not impressed. My world certainly was not rocked. With the abundance of ingredients available in Melbourne like top class choc, fresh fruits and whatever you need, to come out with these is really nothing much to shout about. I think Brunetti is kind of overrated and slightly too commercial for my taste. But still, it would be a good place for all ages for a day or night out.
