Moo Moo have taken the female point of view on board and their new spring/summer menu uses seasonal produce with a combo of traditional offerings and lighter dishes.
Their speciality beef menu is enough to make any carnivore drool with a list that wanders from Darling Downs Kobe cuisine wagyu (fillet, sirloin or minute steak) and Coorong Angus rump to Moo Moo in house dry aged Black Angus from Gippsland.
If you're after a steak splurge, the most expensive item on the menu (apart from the master Kobe which priced by the kilo) is David Blackmore wagyu from Alexandra in Victoria - 300gm Ross Biff at $65.
Heirloom beets, horseradish cream, walnut, cumin, faro and parsley crumbs immediately captured my attention as I'm very partial to beetroot and cumin. The dish was light and flavoursome, plus it left plenty of room for the steak to some.
Around the table the tempura oysters with wakami salad were another standout.

On my next time list would be a selection from the Moo Moo house prepared charcuterie with Mitolo olive oil, olive tapanade, artichokes, onion jam and Spanish peppers. (Maybe not the peppers for me). It comes with a selection of jamon iberico de belotta, wagyu bresaola, nduja, sobrasada, truffle salami, lonza or David Blackmore wagyu biltong.
Of course I just had to try a steak for my main and I can truly say it was a stand-out, melt-in-your-mouth, full-flavoured hit. But not too large as I went for a small size choice. The Wagyu fat oven roasted Kipfler potatoes went well with the steak :).
For non-steak lovers, the menu down offer plenty of other choices including duck, lamb and chicken plus pasta and seafood.
Another dish I'd like to try, maybe as a family Sunday lunch without the stress, would be the spice rubbed 1kg wagyu rump roast that is sealed until smokey on the char grill and oven roasted to your liking. Mmm, I could like that.
If you have room at the end try the chocolate and honeycomb bark with strawberries, although Moo Moo staff are keen to boast that their vanilla panacotta with lemon curd and walnut candy is the best ever. Tell me if you try it:
Bottom line: Great steaks and more, good atmosphere, stunning bar.
