Another great lunch at The Town Mouse – Melbourne

A fleeting visit through Melbourne on the way back from Singapore allowed time for only one lunch, so a return to the Town Mouse seemed like a good idea, give the wonderful experience we had last time. And we had another great lunch, really enjoying some small plates to start and then a much larger plate to share for main course, this time a 900gram (more like 1.3kg) slow-roasted shoulder of lamb that was cooked to perfection, the dish further enhanced by a glass of Bella Ridge Estate Beau Pere 2005, a smoky, meaty, hedonistic blend of the best barrels from this most fascinating winegrower in the Swan Valley http://www.bellaridge.com.au  A full review on the Town Mouse in the pipeline and looking like a strong candidate for my restaurant of the year.
