Bistro Flor - MFWF Restaurant Express

Bistro Flor
555 Nicholson St
Carlton North 3068

Last weekend I enjoyed a restaurant express lunch at Bistro Flor in North Carlton. A cute little corner restaurant it has plenty of appeal.  At 12pm on a sunny Saturday our group of three had the restaurant to ourselves.  The service was good, attentive but not intrusive.

The MFWF restaurant express lunch consists of two courses, a glass of wine and tea or coffee for $35.  At Bistro Flor a choice of two entrees, mains and desserts was offered.


Buxton smoked trout pâté, horseradish cream and caper berries

We began by sharing the two entrees.  The trout pate was nice enough however the horseradish cream was very bland - no discernible horseradish flavour.  The toast was burnt and had a distinct charcoal taste but was quickly replaced when we pointed this out.

Yarra Valley zucchini flowers, eggplant stuffing and harissa

The beautiful stuffed zucchini flowers were definitely the pick of the entrees.  Delicious.

Pan fried John Dory filets, nut and grain salad, orange marmalade

The Fish of the Day was John Dory fillets.  The fish was well cooked and the accompanying grain and nut salad gave a lovely crunchy contrast.  A little bit more of the orange sauce would have been good.

Confit Wimmera duck leg, sautéed spinach, peach relish

The duck was very nice and the peaches beautifully fresh.

Eton Mess with Victorian strawberries
The Eton Mess was delicious.  The gorgeous strawberries a highlight.
