travels: cumulus inc, melbourne

 winner winner, what a dinner!

As most restaurants were fully booked on New Year’s Eve, we decided to try our luck at Cumulus Inc to see if we could score a table. Located at the far end of Flinders Lane, this a highly recommended restaurant in Melbourne. They don’t take reservations, so we set our hopes pretty low. I was mentally prepared to have McDonald’s or Hungry Jacks for dinner, whichever is less crowded!

We were pretty lucky. We got a table in less than 30 minutes!!


At Cumulus Inc, all their dishes are designed to share. We had a hard time deciding what to order as everything on the menu appeals to us! 

After much deliberations, we ordered…img_3069pig’s head croquettes with tartare sauceimg_3070foie gras parfait with toasted brioche

…and we demolished everything. We loved every single dish that we ordered!

The service was impeccable despite the packed the restaurant; the staff were friendly and attentive. The waitress offered us another serving of brioche after seeing how fast Elisa chomped down everything and happily obliged when we asked for another serving of pickled onions to go with the lamb.

It was a shame we did not get to try their desserts. After finishing the whole lamb shoulder, we were somewhat incapacitated!

It was a good meal and a good one to end the year with.
