Coconut Kingfish Ceviche – young coconut, tomato, cucumber, chilli
This basically tasted like an amazing curry dish – fresh and creamy, with a bit of heat from the chilli.
Grilled Corn On The Cob – chipotle mayo, ground masa, lime
I love grilled corn and whenever I see it on a menu somewhere, I always order it and then compare it to the corn here at The Black Toro. It’s been years since I’ve had this and after my first bite I felt super ecstatic as the corn was still as incredible as I remembered it to be.
Spicy Pulled Pork Tacos – soft corn tortilla, sriracha mayo, cabbage slaw
These were some tasty tacos and I really appreciated how they were served on a warm plate so that the tortillas would remain soft and warm for longer.
Salmon Tartare – avocado puree, radish, toasted black sesame, puffed rice chicharon
The salmon needed a bit more seasoning otherwise this was a light and enjoyable dish.
Crispy Pork Hock – masterstock braised pork, guajilo chilli caramel, green apple salsa verde, butter lettuce
Sticky, sweet, and full of flavour. I made such a mess wrapping my pork up but it was totally worth it.
Dessert Tasting Plate
Can’t pick a dessert? Why not try everything!
Passionfruit Tart – berries, toasted meringue, mint
Beautifully presented with a lovely balance of sweetness and tartness. Meanwhile the combination of the smooth filling, the fresh fruit and the dehydrated fruit provided delightful texture variation.
Deconstructed Peanut Butter Cheesecake – chocolate ice cream, peanut butter ice cream, honeycomb
Best eaten with a little bit of everything on your spoon, as the peanut butter was extremely rich on its own.
Chocolate Brownie – salted caramel, popcorn, vanilla ice cream
These brownies were phenomenal – extremely smooth and highly decadent. They tasted amazing on their own, and the other additions were merely added bonuses.
Arroz Con Leche – coconut rice pudding, saffron spiced pear, cinnamon, walnut
Creamy and satisfying.
Always a great experience. The food, service and ambience is brilliant, and the grilled corn is still my absolute favourite in Melbourne!
