Over ten years ago my brother and I took a Canadian cousin and husband out for a meal and we ended up choosing this restaurant - and we had a fabulous night then too. We took the tack of choosing almost every entree and shared each plate so a full taste experience was had. I can honestly say - the Canadians were blown away by "Aussie fare". They had assumed that Australian food is what they got served up at "Outback Jacks" ....... no...no ..... nooooooo!!
Back to last night..... here are some pictures to make you hungry!
The exterior - Our restaurant was upstairs and there is a separate one downstairs.
Looking at the City Scape on the river over the balcony tables. Too cold to sit outside in winter!
Tasting plate contained Crocodile fish cake with lemon myrtle pickle, potato and leak soup with pepper leaf chive cream, and goats curd noisette with liquid beetroot.
Husband had the Char Grilled Kangaroo
My choice was asian inspired Clay Pot Duck.....
The duck dish was then spooned over my steamed bok choy and coconut and lemongrass rice. The rice was to die for!!!
This was the organic prosciutto wrapped chicken, soft herb stuffing, confit leg, sweet potato, toasted cashews, spinach puree, cranberry and native apple pickle.
Salt bush lamb
Yam Gratin side dish
My dessert..... Wow! Macadamia and honey parfait, salted caramel popcorn, and chocolate ganache.
Trio of brûlées - chocolate, plum and lime and ginger.
