For my birthday, my old work chums and I went to Runya's Rooms in the new St Collins Lane shopping complex in the Melbourne CBD. You can book in for a high tea at Runya's, and there are some beautiful cakes and pastries displayed in the window:
However, we were there for lunch, so something a little more substantial was called for.
Greg went for the minute steak sandwich with onion jam, gruyere, tomato, lettuce aioli and relish ($19) - it was hearty and tasty:
Justine went for the selection of sandwiches, which are the same as those served at high tea ($16):
Swee went for the mini lamb sliders with babaganoush, cucumber and tahini yoghurt ($15):
And I went for the magnificent looking hot smoked salmon, poached eggs, toasted rye, beetroot relish and dill hollandaise ($17):
Everyone was happy with their choice. Service was efficient.
I would like to go back and try the high tea.
