Recently I had the pleasure of visiting Street Talk Espresso. Street Talk Espresso is not your average Melbourne cafe, but a highly innovative cafe that offers a large variety of imaginative dishes and great coffee.
As the weather was beautiful that day, I requested for a seat out in the courtyard to soak up my much needed vitamin D. After ordering my coffee, I had a quick look at the menu and without hesitation I ordered their special for the day – the Lock Stock.
My dish arrived shortly after like this:
Be warned that this dish will draw a lot of attention! I mean how can you stop people from being so intrigued with what is under the glass closh and smoke?
TA DA! The Lock Stock – Two Smoking Salmon – Roast Bagel Crumb, Dill + Orange cream cheese, candied nectarine, nordic salmon, avocado mousse and tomato caper concise.
A vibrant looking dish that is beautifully balanced in flavour. I love the thin layer of beetroot gel layered on top of the creamy orange cream cheese and the tangy flavour punching tomato caper concise. The roast bagel crumb was interesting – it was buttery and went well with the other elements of the dish.
I would love to return to Street Talk Espresso in the near future to try out their other dishes like their Challah French Toast that I’ve seen around on instagram.
If you’re looking for an innovative cafe with lots of vibrant, instagrammable dishes, definitely check this cafe out!
