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

Cocina Bandito - 26 Mar 2015

Cocina Bandito - The Full Castro

The menu offers a small selection of dishes but you can get a cut down version all three mains for just $20 with corn chips, salsa, and guacamole. I really liked the variety and taste all three dishes offered. The toasted bread roll with mustard, Monterey Jack cheese and tender beef brisket is comfort food. The lettuce cups with spiced rice and salsa offers up refreshing flavours. The tender pork belly with black rice and black eyed peas was excellent too, especially with the orange and star anise sauce. I also got some dessert, the infinity donuts, which were a bit firm but tasty in the Havana club syrup. . . . → Read More: Cocina Bandito – 26 Mar 2015

Shiro Izakaya - 20 Mar 2015

Shiro - Chicken Katsu Set with Tempura

Since I first visited, Shiro have revamped the lunch set to offer a bit less for a cheaper price. The prior lunch set used to be like a mini three course meal which left you stuffed. I think these lunch time sets are more accessible and suited to people’s appetites and budgets. For the price, they’re great value, offer variety, choice, and quality. I really liked the delicious katsu sauce which significantly livened up the plain steamed rice. Along with the crunchy crumbed succulent chicken, the light crispy batter of the tempura, the soothing miso soup, and the refreshing garden salad and dressing, it made for a delicious meal. . . . → Read More: Shiro Izakaya – 20 Mar 2015
