Yarri Restaurant and Bar, Dunsborough WA

Lunch at Yarri was perhaps our favourite meal at Margaret River. It was blisteringly cold and wet - very unusual for the area - so it was nice to seek refuge somewhere warm and in the company of good food. Definitely, a must-visit if you are in the area.

Crusty sourdough was the perfect way to kick off our meal. Paired with pine nuts and crackers, the emu tartare was excellent. The smoked trout croquettes were so-so as ratio of smoked trout to potatoes weighed in favour of the potatoes.

We normally don't order from the kids' menu but the burger was calling out to Russell and we thought they might be satiated with some carbs before feeding off our morsels. Russell polished off his burger effortlessly and Lucas - mon petit gourmand - did a great job with his pasta.

The pierce de resistance was probably the 600g dry-aged beef sirloin. Hit. The. Spot. The dollap of butter was excessive and indulgent but no-one seemed to mind it. On the side, the burnt cabbage almost stole the show - in fact, it was the inspiration to my burnt cabbage dish for Father's Day.
