For my first post I decided to give you guys a quick review of my visit to the Auction Room in North Melbourne.
It’s the first time since I can remember that I’ve ventured into the area of North Melbourne. I live in the East side of Melbourne so I rarely go beyond Melbourne CBD so when a friend suggested that I try the Auction Room it was at first a bit hesitate. But the foodie in me was just itching to go try it out especially after reading the positive reviews of it on Urbanspoon.
So on a sunny spring day last week, my boyfriend and I decided to check it out!
I started off with an ice-coffee and my boyfriend had his typical latte…hmmm mine was just too bitter…and it was obvious that they simply poured some cold milk over an espresso shot… while his latte was average too…
Mr. Ba0 enjoyed his smoke salmon with the black pudding; however, portions were small so he was tempted to ordering something else…
My banana bread was alright… but it wasn’t as delicious as I expected it to be. Maybe it’s because I’m a baker and have made banana bread before…I found their one to be very bland…and I could barely taste the banana flavour and I had to ask twice for more maple syrup as it was simple too dry without it…
Overall, my experience at the Auction Rooms was a bit of a disappointment…I expected more from such a highly rated café on Urbanspoon…not sure if I’d return again because it is out of my way…but for those who in that area I say it’s a decent place to catch up with friends.
Thank you very much for reading my first post!
