MuMu Grill

First come across MuMu during the Crows Nest street festival back in October. At that time, they had a big BBQ grill outside the restaurant offering to serve some free range organic split roast pork. However, we weren't able to try it last time. While this time around, R decided to take my dad, whom loves having a good steak and other family members to this steakhouse.

The split roast back in October during the Crowns Nest festival

On the menu, it offers different types of steaks as well as ribs, chicken and fish. Choices, choices and choices. Instead of making my decision straight away, we ordered a vegetarian tapas plate and the Jamon to share while taking our time to select our main.

Vegetarian Tapas plate
Tortilla with olive tapenade, grilled field mushrooms, zucchini flower, roasted almond, vegetables & almonds

Jamon Serrano 18MTH & Catalan Bread

The vegetarian tapas plate was lovely and fresh. I really like the roasted almond which looks like a giant pine nut with a soft texture. For the Jamon serrano, I was just so excited it's on the menu as it is my most favorite dry cured Spanish ham, besides it sure didn't disappoint the dining group at all.
Riverina T-Bone 500G
"Tagliata"seared sliced and finished with rosemary and garlic

Half organic chicken
My mum ordered the chicken. While she is not a big eater, to my surprise she finished the entire dish. The empty plate at the end simply proves it must be one good dish.

Beef fillet 160G
Wrapped in sage and prosciutto, cafe de Paris butter on mashed pontiac potato

The beef fillet is the smallest steak it has to offer on the menu. It was cooked to perfection, goes perfectly well with the beautiful cafe de paris butter, though the steak itself doesn't have a strong beef taste that I would like.

Sirloin 280G
Sourced from the pastures of Millawa

Rib Combo
Beef short ribs with baby baby pork ribs. Meat lovers delight green beans & chips
I had a taste of the rib combo. Love the super soft texture of the meat both pork as well as beef, however, the sauce let the dish down. It was overwhelming sweet with the taste of plum sauce. Even R had to try and scrape off the sauce as much as possible before eating. It doesn't matter how beautiful the ribs are on itself, the sauce totally ruin the dish.

Chocolate and Raspberry square
With wattle seed ice-cream and Belgian chocolate tile

Dessert anyone? Of course ! My chocolate and raspberry square dessert tasted like a mixture between a brownie and fudge. A rich and warm chocolate cake with some sweet and tangy raspberry coulis with a scoop of delicious wattle seed ice- cream which tasted like a mix flavor of hazelnut, light chocolate and coffee.

Brown Sugar pavlova
Topped with fresh pineapple and passionfruit sauce

My sister ordered the brown sugar pavlova. I hesitated to try it at first as I don't really like pineapple. Pineapple always reminds me of its sour taste, but the pineapple was sweet and this pavlova with brown sugar was very light. What a delightful way to conclude our meal.
