Shiro Izakaya - 24 Apr 2015

Shiro - Pork Belly Set

Another visit to Shiro to try one of their lunch sets and they don’t disappoint. I like the variety, quality, taste, and presentation. It’s excellent value for money and will leave you comfortably full. On today’s outing I enjoyed the pork belly set which served lots of tender pork belly immersed in a delicious sauce which made the rice so delicious. I like the variety of the set with a delicious warming miso soup, fresh salad with a delicious dressing to liven up the greens, and today I went for the sushi which had soft shell crab which was tasty. . . . → Read More: Shiro Izakaya – 24 Apr 2015

The Trustee & Dessert Degustation - 15 Apr 2015

The Trustee - Dessert Degustation - Snickers Bar

I headed especially to The Trustee to try their dessert degustation. Before I started, I ordered the pork belly parcels which served up tender pork belly oozing the unmistakeable flavour that only pork belly can offer, surrounded by crunchy pastry and a blob of cranberry sauce. This was well paired with a delicious apple and red cabbage salad. Then it was on to the dessert degustation consisting of 5 courses. I loved the wattleseed and caramel ice cream, not so much the quince with pear tart. The lychee granita was so refreshing and enjoyed thoroughly with the rosewater panna cotta. The snickers bar was absolutely amazing along with the vanilla ice cream wafer. Lastly, the spearmint macaron and spearmint vanilla flavoured milkshake was an excellent finish to the meal. I love the dessert degustation which offers lots of variety, quality, execution, and taste. Five courses for $24 is well worth it, mind you, after the fourth course I was done. Plenty to keep you happy. . . . → Read More: The Trustee & Dessert Degustation – 15 Apr 2015

Bar de Halcyon - 10 Apr 2015

Bar de Halcyon - Paella

Wolf Lane plays hosts to several restaurants and bars with Bar de Halcyon being one of them. They offer tapas but also have more substantial dishes too. I ordered the paella which contained a generous quantity for the price and consisted of juicy prawns, chicken, and chorizo. The rice was quite flavoursome though some parts needed a little more cooking. It carries a pretty good flavour though doesn’t seem as authentic as varieties I’ve eaten before. It’s still a tasty meal, especially with a squeeze of lemon. The tapas item of Spanish crumbed prawns was delicious. A lovely golden brown crumb surrounded tender prawns enjoyed more with a dash of lime and a dip into the cocktail sauce. The cucumber salad which appeared like noodles was a refreshing element to the prawns and paella. . . . → Read More: Bar de Halcyon – 10 Apr 2015

Millioncino - 2 Apr 2015

Millioncino - Sardine Spaghetti

Millioncino is a family run restaurant offering Sicilian cuisine, fine dining, an extensive wine list judging by the bottles about, but in a venue that wouldn’t look out of place in Rome. I took the waitstaff’s recommendation and went with a sardine, pine nut, fennel and sultana spaghetti. A generous serving of sardine oil covered spaghetti, fine bread crumbs, chunks of small tasty sardines, and a fruity burst from the sultanas. A delicious dish that satisfies. I also had cannoli which was filled with lots of rich mascarpone and a lesser amount of ricotta inside a crisp and crunchy pastry. Pretty tasty but prefer a less richer version and a slightly soft pastry. . . . → Read More: Millioncino – 2 Apr 2015
