Located in Carlton just a few minutes walk from Melbourne University, this little café is quite a unique addition to Melbourne’s brunch scene. French word “Le Miel Et La Lune” translated (with the help of Google translate of course) means Honeymoon. Quite strange as the menu was screaming Korean-fusion.
Le Miel Et la Lune is armed with enormous windows that immediately boost beams of colour and life into the café. This corner café is the perfect place to wind down with a book over coffee and great food or to catch up with some friends.
No need to venture out to Collingwood for those who enjoy Proud Mary’s coffee. This is the place to be, they use Proud Mary’s roasted coffee!
Pork Belly Potato Hash $17.90
The decision was not hard, as you don’t see a collaboration with pork belly and potato hash everyday. The pork belly was not much of a stunner it sought out to be. It was quite thinly sliced, so you could not taste much. The Shimeji mushrooms and creamy (and boy do they mean creamy!) sesame sauce complimented the dish well, however was quite empowering. Also topped with a poached egg, this dish made out to be a very heavy dish. It was in need of something to refresh the palette.
Not to say I didn’t enjoy the dish, it was actually really good, just a bit too much for myself.
Other dishes ordered by friends over a much-needed catch up after University exams:
Bulgogi Burger, Sweet Corn Fritter, Cheesy Spicy Chicken
Think picnic on a lovely sunny day, Le Miel Et La Lune is a breath of fresh air.
