Review: gg (East Melbourne, VIC)

This seemed to be the perfect restaurant for me and my sister to try, given its name is also our initials. From the docket, I learned that gg stands for Grandpa Giuseppe, which is more suited for a traditional trattoria than this stylish European wine bar and restaurant. We visited for an early dinner on a Sunday and, apart from two Asian men enjoying a meal, we were the only customers. We toasted with a glass of Delas Freres Côtes du Rhône (great wine!) as a farewell until the next visit.

After politely rejecting the bread basket we were served, the waiter offered us gluten-free bread. We were glad we accepted because it was delicious, with hints of cumin that went beautifully with the olive oil provided.

Instead of ordering a few different dishes, we chose one of the large specials to share: herb-rubbed pork belly with golden raisin, cauliflower, candied walnuts, apple, chives, and hand cut chips. Little can go wrong with pork belly, and this one didn’t disappoint. It was more than enough food for both of us, too.
