Located in and amongst Melbourne’s legal precinct, Prime House is casual and welcoming. The location makes it ideal for CBD workers looking for a convenient lunch time spot which boasts alfresco tables for a quick lunch break as well as spacious seating inside. As its name suggests, the menu is aimed at meat lovers with an array of hearty choices from steaks to impressively stacked burgers. We were pleased by the generous portions – these guys really do know how to feed. A nondescript – looking diner nestled in the heart of the financial district with opening hours which cater strictly to the office crowd, Primehouse Melbourne is a meat lover’s nirvana.
Though a simple dish, steak is one of the hardest dishes in the world to get right due to incorrect cut selection, marinade and method of cooking. The Prime House interpretation will leave you breathless. Juicy fat wraps unapologetically around one side of the meat, the fringes blackened by charcoal, imparting the elusive smokiness required for BBQ steak. Such is the quality of the meat that the need for sauce is eliminated. But wait, the taste of the sauce is simply amazing, with a nice garlicky heaviness in it – certainly, an option if you want some variation of flavour after a few bites.
If meat is not your thing, Prime House also serves excellent coffee made from Atomica’s beans which come with a complimentary muffin. Apart from that, they serve a lot of fares for those who love to indulge in some meat. A tasting plate of roast meats is served up featuring four of the greatest: Lamb, chicken, beef and the Primehouse speciality, 16 hour roast pork with crackling. The lamb instantly announces its presence by banging down the door of your palate and exploding onto your tastebuds, lightly misting the scene with saffron and rosewater nuances. The texture and succulence of the meat make it akin to a really top notch Indian curry, without the excess lubrication of too much gravy. The roast chicken is far from your average BBQ chook, accompanied by a tangy yet sweet tomato-based sauce with decidedly Persian influences. It’s another winner in the innovative steak and like all good chicken, it is strangely addictive.
