Munich Brauhaus in South Wharf provides a bit of that traditional Bavarian flair to your dining experience. With a focus on the popular German dishes such as sausages, schnitzels and steaks with an extensive selection of craft and imported beers, it really is catered towards those looking for a hearty meal with a drink (or two) to go with it.

They used to offer sausages with your choice of sides but their menu has since changed. When I dined here, Munich Brauhaus’ sausages with red cabbage, mash and gravy was overall, a tasty meal. Though I found the sausages to be a bit salty. The bier gravy had a lovely subtle beer flavour to it that elevated the dish, but again a tad too salty.

Their Munich Lager is light, refreshing and delightfully hoppy.

Last words

If you’re looking for a tasty German meal with a variety of beers to choose from, this is your place. The view along the Yarra river isn’t too bad either!

Squires Loft have several locations across Victoria and even a few interstate. Their Nunawading outlet is located in Brandsmart, on Whitehorse Road. As with the other outlets, their main appeal is their selection of steaks and grill options. At Nunawading, they also have a bar menu option as well as a dining in menu to choose from.

Their Char-grilled salmon with creamy garlic sauce was a lovely medium-rare and had a fantastic grilled aroma to it. The garlic sauce that comes with the salmon is a delicious sauce to go with it, just add a bit of black pepper to spice it up.

All the mains come with your choice of fries, baked potato or a side salad. The fries are also quite good actually.

The Chicken breast fillet is also another winner. Moist and tender, but still having that nice charred flavour to it. A black pepper or mushroom sauce would have probably paired better than the garlic sauce but the garlic sauce is very nice I must say.

Last words

Great tasting steaks, for an affordable price.

Café Buade was our first meal in Quebec City, after arriving by train from Montreal. Already lunch time, the Old Quebec City was packed full of people and tourists (like me!), we finally found a restaurant that looked quaint and food that was reasonably priced.

Service here was great actually, and even though they do speak in French initially (of course), they do respond in English without much hesitation. Probably because it’s a tourist hotspot, but it puts us at ease nonetheless.

The food here has a mix of Italian, French and your burgers, steaks and grills.

We ordered one of their grills, which comes with coleslaw, fries and topped with a BBQ gravy and peas. The gravy was quite bland on first impressions, and it was in dire need of pepper. The fries were also a tad on the dry side of things, although super crispy as you can see. Overall, I found it to be a very average dish.

Their Salmon salad is quite fresh , with their salmon, capers and onions with a dressing. Not particularly my type of dish but it’s not bad if you like salmon and capers.

Their Hamburger steak, served with sautéed onions,  vegetables and your choice of a side and sauce (I chose mash and gravy) was a decent meal. Hamburger patty moist but the mash potato was lacking in pepper, creaminess and smoothness you would often find in a good mash. It doesn’t leave a lasting impression but it does fill you up.

Impressions

Overall, our dining experience at Café Buade can be summed up with just a few words. Very average. From our meals, I couldn’t think of any highlights or anything that stood out in anyway, other than that you’d get a decent feed here. If you’re here for a limited time, like we were, I’d probably suggest finding another restaurant to dine at.
