We didn't choose our meals, but sampled many yummy dishes. Keeping the tradition of Four Food there was a few offal dishes on the menu. Normally not my favourite, I absolutely loved the Crumbed Pigs Tail with a Crab and Corn salad and Avocado Puree. The other entree, which I have been dreaming about, was a Pork Parfait and Quince Chutney sandwiched between a piece of crispy Tortilla on the bottom and a crispy skinned Chicken Wing on top ( just the meatiest part ) to die for! Not something most would do at home ! Mixed Grain salad was fabulous too.Mains were served in cast iron pots, centre of table to share. Desserts were gorgeous, and I am not a dessert girl. White Chocolate Sandwich with Vanilla Cucumber had us all talking. I would love to go back and try the Suckling Pig or Licorice " Beef and Bone ".
The staff were very attentive and knowledgeable. Wine list was broad, and we had some great reds! As I wasn't ordering, and by that stage I was trying to take in all the food, I can't tell you what they were. We did feel there should have been a wine under $59 on the list, however menu prices were very reasonable.
Also dined at Flying Fish, always beautiful. Love the position on the water at Jones Bay Wharf. The restaurant fit out is stunning, in a former maritime warehouse and the staff are so attentive. I had Line caught Snapper with White Sri Lankan Curry sauce, parsley mallum and date and tamarind. If you haven't been you must try it soon and watch him on TV.... Peter Kuruvita !
