This is such an overdue post I can’t even. That’s probably gonna be the intro for the next ten posts since my backlog is getting pretty insane, but anyway, we visited Bluetrain when my Japanese friend was here, because her and her mum came here for dinner the day before and loved it.
I absolutely loved the interior of Bluetrain, with the windows allowing plenty of sunlight in, a view of the river, and graphics scattered around, it had a hip yet comforting vibe. Oh and the toilet’s amazing, make sure you visit it at least once when you go!
|B.T. Seasoned Chips w/ Aioli – $8.00|
We ordered some chips to share, because, well, chips are chips, and they make any meal better. I couldn’t really taste the seasoning on the chips, but the aioli was creamy and delicious.
|Pumpkin Salad – $18.00|
My friend’s mum loved the inclusion of zucchini ribbons – amongst other things – in the salad. The walnuts and sunflower seeds gave the salad texture and added a nutty flavour, whilst the goats cheese made the pumpkin extra creamy.
|Prawns, Scallops, Calamari and Crab Meat Linguine – $30.00|
The pasta was absolutely amazing. The linguine was cooked perfectly al dente, and all the seafood elements were cooked just right too, something that’s definitely worth praising. However, what I loved the most was the sauce that tied the whole dish together, the simple combination of herbed olive oil, chilli and garlic had such a depth of flavour, and really took the dish to the next level.
I don’t have much experience dining around the Southbank area of the CBD, but I thoroughly enjoyed my experience at Bluetrain! The food was delicious and the setting was beautiful, definitely somewhere I’d return to!
How to get there:
Bluetrain is located inside Southgate Landing, a short 10 minutes walk from Flinders St Station.
