Final Stop :)
Head down Russell Street towards Flinders and make a right onto Flinders Lane.
Here you will find one of Melbourne’s hidden gold nuggets, the Meatball and Wine Bar. But don’t let the name fool you, their desserts are truly divine!
Here you will receive a sweet treat to celebrate a great day! What better way to gift your taste buds than ice cream sandwiches, Sticky Date pudding and of course wine!
A meaty family history.
Like his father, Gemmo Chit started working on cattle properties at an early age. As a man, he too would bring only the finest meat home to his wife. To this day, Gemmo Chit lives between Italy and Australia doing the thing he loves, working the land and producing amazing quality beef. His four sons are all doing their own thing, but the love of food – particularly meat – has never been lost. The Meatball and Wine Bar is the modern day representation of what Gemmo was all about: incredible produce delivered in an uncomplicated way. Today you will be getting your desserts here BUT make sure you come on back for some great meat on your next visit!
Game: Degrees of Separation
One person picks two things that are unrelated. The other person has to provide a chain of plausible associations to connect them. For example, if you say "lion and slippers," I might say, "A lion hunts warthogs. Warthogs are pigs. Pigs in a blanket is a breakfast entree. A blanket goes on a bed. When I get out of bed, I put on my slippers."
Sticky Date Pudding was only introduced in the 1970’s in North England. It seems like it has been around for far much longer don't you think? Also called Sticky Toffee Pudding in its native Great Britain, it is considered a modern British classic by various British experts despite it’s relatively short life.
