The Flour Factory Food Review Summary
Verdict: Since transforming from the Venn Bar, I haven’t yet made a visit to The Flour Factory despite being right next door to where I work. The former flour mill has been transformed into an intriguing space spanning 3 levels and includes a large bar area as well as offering dining. Offering a range of tapas style dishes, if you can’t decide what to get, just go with the feed me menu.
We started off with sourdough and cultured butter served with confit garlic before moving on to the array of delights on the charcuterie board. With more soft sourdough, I enjoyed spreading the delicious duck liver pate with a touch of mustard, before moving on to the pork terrine and wagyu cured meat. With some pickled veggies on the side, the acidity helps take the edge off the meatiness of the board. Next we were served the perfect bowl of duck fat potatoes. They were so yummy, crunchy, oooooh, just divine. Enough said.
To accompany the duck fat potatoes were two meat dishes. The first was a huge chunk of meat! Certainly unexpected but plenty to share among the 5 members at our table, the lamb after carving away was tender, juicy, and delicious. The other meat dish served was a sizeable beef rib. The presentation of the dish is beautiful and colourful. More carving required, the beef ribs were tasty though could have done with a little more cooking to give that extra level of tenderness. With all the meat presented, one needs a break and the tasty array of mushrooms delivered on flavour. The dish certainly tastes better than it looks, dishing up a few different varieties of mushrooms cooked perfectly, juicy and tender. I particularly like the enoki mushrooms and the salad was a welcome relief.
Certainly very full with mains, pre dessert presented alternating caramel filled or bourbon filled chocolate. I had the caramel, mmmmm, chocolate. This feed me menu keeps feeding. Thankfully we’re at the end. Passionfruit and white chocolate tart with blueberries. Excellent finish to a delicious meal with a lovely dessert balancing the different flavours and giving that touch of sweetness to round off the palate. The feed me menu option is excellent for a group and there’s plenty of food served. We certainly didn’t leave hungry and were unable to finish all the food brought before us. Bit disappointed to leave those duck fat potatoes behind which were a highlight, they really were done well. Lots of variety and good flavours, at $55 per person, it’s an excellent choice.
Price: Moderately Expensive
