Sydney, NSW 2000
5th year anniversary.
Ranked 4th Best Restaurant in the World.
4.5 hours of eating.
Pure unadulterated bliss.
First course was a little appetizer – a mini sandwich with
caviar and something else..
Fresh oysters with olive oil and lemon
these were UNBELIEVABLE, best oysters I’ve ever eaten, hands down
Tuna sushi with avocado cream and caviar
a beautiful blend of cream and fresh raw seafood
Marinated NZ Scampi with foie gras & walnut
absolutely divine, and lovely with the creamy foie gras
Sashimi Tuna Marinated in Soy & Mirin, Sweet Corn soup with Basil ice cream
the soup was unbelievably good, with the basil ice cream a perfect blend
BBQ scallop with roe in olive oil
so utterly divine, one of my faves
Confit of Petuna Tasmanian Ocean Trout with Konbu, Daikon & Rocket
I’d never eaten anything so utterly exquisite and unusual in my entire life
Seasonal Green Salad
Ravioli of Lobster with Scallop and Tarragon Mousse, Tomato & Basil
Unusual but so delicious in the olive oil!
Roasted Quail wrapped in Proscuitto on warm polenta, served with mushrooms
very very good, but nothing that different from other good restaurants
Medium-rare Veal with Wasabi Butter
so tender it was unbelievable!!
Sorbet and Strawberry Shortcake with cream
The strawberry shortcake (on the right) was so unique, it was divine!
Blue Cheese ice cream with Walnuts, Biscuit and Honey
this was BY FARRRRR THE BEST DISH EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Floating Island meringue with hazelnut and vanilla anglais
I hate meringue but this is now one of my fave desserts. Sublime.
Date and Biscuit balls in Coconut
I thought I wouldn’t like this (dates?!) but these were amazing!!
Flourless Chocolate Cake with dark chocolate ice cream and orange sorbet
This was a surprise!!!!!!!!! They found out it was our 5th Anniversary and
served this to us on the house 🙂
Happy couple 😀
A truly memorable meal. $200 per person, but well worth every cent, especially for a celebration. Everything was simply exquisite, and the service was impeccable! The waiters were really friendly yet professional, and it was just a SPECTACULAR experience. Truly the most stunning way to celebrate our 5th anniversary 🙂
Also was pleasantly surprised at work today when a big bunch of Stargazer Lillies arrived at my desk! They were massive and come in their own vase – which I give Chris full credit for, as I need a vase anyway! Stargazer Lillies are my favourite flowers and they smell so good next to me on my desk 🙂
It’s such a wonderful feeling, that we’ve celebrated our 5th anniversary. I never thought I could stay with someone for 5 years.. and I also never thought anyone could put up with me for that long 😛 I LOVE HIM. That’s really all there is to it.
