Blok M Express

380 Little Bourke St
Melbourne, 3000

After failing to find our original destination for lunch Phil and I headed to Little Bourke Street to Blok M. We'd thought about eating there one evening with Chris, but didn't in the end as it isn't licensed.

Inside it's bright thanks to the big windows, the tables are pretty small, some have chairs, others stools. There is a raised esction towards the back, and on the wall there is more information about Blok M in Jakarta.

I liked the table number holders you are given after ordering - shaped and painted like the front of a bus, it brought back to me thoughts of various bus trips from travels in Asia... (Actually looking at it again, it might be a tuk-tuk, plenty of fun memories of them too though...)

The menu contained a variety of Indonesian dishes from the familiar Nasi Goreng to some less familiar dishes, including curries, and plenty of friend and grilled fish.

Phil had the Gule Kambing a lamb curry, which was tasty without being super spicy,  it seemed to go down well marrow included!

I went for the pecel bakar, a grilled catfish, which had a crispy, well done, sweet and spicy coating.

The service was friendly and both dishes were around the $10 mark, I think we might visit again to try some more of the options on the menu!
