Firebird restaurant at Prahran

Firebird restaurant at Prahran

Prahran is a suburb of Melbourne, Victoria with a rich history and many tales to tell. It’s the home of the famous Prahran Market, which is one of Australia’s oldest and largest street markets.

This restaurant opened in June last year with a focus on Australian produce and wines. It has two levels with an open-concept kitchen, so you can watch your meal being prepared as well as enjoy it! The open cellar bar upstairs hosts regular live entertainment.


During our lunch, we started with a glass of Pinot Gris from the Yarra Valley, which paired perfectly with our entree of eggplant parmesan.

The eggplant parmesan was incredibly light! There wasn’t a heavy or goopy sauce that you often find with other versions. The eggplant was well seasoned and the parmesan added a nice touch of saltiness.


It was tough to choose our mains as all of the options looked delicious. We eventually narrowed it down to the cos salad with smoked salmon, and the Australian lamb rump and chips.


The cos salad was refreshingly crunchy, and had nice chunks of creamy avocado. The salad was generous with its meat and had a lovely smoky flavour from the salmon. The lamb was succulent and had a lovely texture. It was served with a special lemon and butter concoction that tasted amazing!


Our main meal consisted of the lamb rump, which was beautifully presented on the plate, the meat was moist and the meatloaf-like filling had an interesting flavour (a mix of spices). The chips were seasoned beautifully and were nicely crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside.


Although we didn’t try the prawns, the dish looked amazing. The sides were also extremely appealing – a large serving of roasted cauliflower, and a generous side of creamy mash potatoes.


All of the food was very delicious and well presented. I enjoyed my meal immensely, and would definitely be back for another meal!
