Two years ago, a fire destroyed the kitchen of The Fitzroy Pinnacle. The kitchen has remained shut until now with Chef Tim Breden back in the kitchen pumping out some of Melbourne’s best pub grub.
Before the fire, this was one of our favourite parmas so we returned to see if much had changed.
The wait for the parma was a bit longer than usual ticking in about 35 minutes but all was forgiven when we took the first bite.
The parma has itself ranged in sizes but was generally quite big and filling.
The chicken was battered a bit thin for our liking but the crumbing gave it a nice little crunch which we loved.
The Napoli was nice and thick and was applied liberally.
The bacon and jalapeños were both amazing additions. The jalapeños gave the parma a great flavour which made this parma very different to anything we have had. The cheese did its job just fine also.
The inclusion of crinkle cut chips were just perfect. Perfectly cooked and seasoned.
The salad was refreshing with a good amount of cherry tomatoes and cucumber.
It felt great knowing the parma at The Fitzroy Pinnacle still held up to its predecessor. The pinnacle is now better than ever. Chief Tim makes a pretty damn tasty parma. Congrats on the re-opening guys @fitzroypinnacle
