The scallops were perfectly cooked and succulent. I love the contrast in flavors from the salty pancetta and the sweet, garlicky apple puree. I could have eaten all three pieces!

Deb wanted me to try her favorite salad and I loved it! I really enjoyed eating a salad with so much texture mainly from the grains used – farro, bulgur and quinoa. There was a touch of sweetness from mulberry fruit and crunch from pistachio. The different greens also added a flavor kick.

This salad reminded me of the healthy salads in Whole Foods in the USA. But of course this was much more complex and way tastier.
The Moat is a good place to eat at in Melbourne.
