Melbourne, we know you got yourselves in a right ol’ tizz over that deconstructed coffee, but really, you haven’t seen the best of it yet.

Sure, coffee is great and all, but have you seen a deconstructed lemon cheesecake?

Now, before you rush out and decide that this is some kind of Melbourne foodie rubbish, hear us out: Imagine all the best bits of your favourite dessert, all served up separately so that you could savour every. Last. Flavour.

I don’t know about you, but I’m a fiend for lemon cheesecake. BUT I’m way more into the cheese than the lemon, so being able to modify the cheese to lemon ratio in each mouthful is absolute flavour perfection.

Spare Me Kitchen’s version of a deconstructed cheesecake isn’t just your regular cheesecake. Every element has been thought about, to provide the ultimate plate of flavour-bombs. You’ll find whipped goats curd, mascarpone, shaved grana, vanilla almond soil, and lemon gel. Each item sits pretty on your plate to form the ultimate deconstructed cheesecake.

While in our humble opinion this is THE most Melbourne dessert you’re likely to find—and it’s totally worth making the trip for—it seems like a waste not to make the most of all the other scrumptious things on offer at Spare Me Kitchen.

For starters, it’s a toss up between the jamon served with duck liver parfait, saltbush, and pickles, and the madras spiced trawler prawns. When it comes to mains—because we’re total suckers for seafood—the seared blue eye with clams, white wine, and parsley or the soft shell crab burger are our two must-trys. For dessert….Well, you know what to do.

Spare Me Kitchen’s menu is designed for sharing. Whether that is an intimate dinner with that person that always steals the last bite, or a full wolf-pack gathering, there are menu options to suit either. The space has cosy booth-style seating Haven’t locked in your Christmas party yet? Bingo. 

Busting to try all of Spare Me Kitchen’s finger lickin’ dishes? You’re in luck, they’re giving two EPIC dinners for ten people. That’s right, you and nine friends could be tucking in to all the deliciousness in the world—for freeeee. Simply enter your details below to go in to the draw.
