NSW, Sydney - Almond Bar

Almond Bar - Almond Selection: Cinnamon & Sugar, Caramelised, Smoked, Chilli & Sesame Seed

I haven’t eaten much Middle Eastern food so I’m keen to explore other cuisines. The staff are friendly and welcoming and helped advise what dishes would be a good choice. I was really surprised at the selection of almonds placed on the table. Their preparation to give different flavours was unique, something I’ve never come across before. That led me to buy a jar to take home with me. For entrée, I loved the tender calamari but the light mild spice mix really added a delicious flavour to the meal. The succulent tender and flavour infused beef cheek was superb. The red wine and grape molasses the beef is prepared in gives a rich vibrant flavour. For dessert, I tried booza which is an ice cream with an elastic texture and spiced with mastic. Rather foreign but enjoyable. I was really full and really enjoyed the delicious array of flavours in the dishes I sampled. I’d love to come back again but will have to save that for a future trip to Sydney. . . . → Read More: NSW, Sydney – Almond Bar

Holiday Part 14 – Sydney - Le Petit Creme

Cuisine: French, Breakfast Location: Sydney: Darlinghurst
