Espresso and Matcha's Foodie Odyessy - Melbourne Day 5 Dinner : Squires Loft

Having been shopping at Harbour Town, we wandered across the other side to grab our dinner at Squires Loft, facing the harbour.

Having made a reservation at 6 p.m. we were one of the first few tables seated. Staff were very attentive, menus and water were provided  promptly.


What we really enjoyed was the diagram with the different cuts of meat and descriptions of their characteristics.

In anticipation of the ribs, we were given two little tablets with a small portion of water. Turns out that they expanded in the water to become wet towels with a pleasant lemon scent.

Bread was served first up. Unfortunately it wasn't toasted, but it was still fresh and the inside was soft, but the outside was a little chewy.

Our shared mains were then served quite quickly.

We shared one set of pork ribs, which was so tender and soft that the flesh literally fell off the bone. We didn't even need to use our hands at all, and we could easily extract the bones out by knife and fork, leaving a delicious meaty dinner for us. It was grilled and seasoned strongly, so we used the baked potato (which was huge) to soak up most of the juices. It left a really smoky and meaty aftertaste which we loved.

In addition to the ribs, we also ordered the 400g rump, served with garlic sauce and chips. As usual, I have it served rare, and it was indeed cooked rare.  It was a very thick cut, as my usual preference, but still slightly chewy. The garlic sauce was rich and creamy and was very generous in portion, but could have a stronger garlic taste to it. The portion of chips was also quite large, and as such, we were able to apply the excess garlic sauce to the chips.
