So, it's already the second week into the 2006 Good Food Month, and this is only just my first encounter for the year... I promise there will be more!
Bookings are essential, says the website. But are they really? I scored fabulous window seats, with a stunning view to Sydney Harbour and the Opera House -without a booking. The waiter introduced the Sugar Hit tasting plate, took away our dying candle for replacement, and ensured us that he would "remove" the cockaroach which was creeping beneath my seat. A good ten minutes later, he turns with a bottle of Brown Brothers Moscato. No candle, and no removal of the pest. The Moscato was beautiful, it was so refreshing, sweet and fruity.
The tasting plate featured [left - right] the milk chocolate and caramel creme brulee, chocolate and saffron infused poached pear, and the milk chocolate and coconut parfait. The brulee was so good, I thought it deserved it's own picture. The poached pear was subtly sweet and had a lovely soft grainy texture. The parfait on my plate actually collapsed... and tasted quite ordinary.
The highlight... milk chocolate and caramel creme brulee. I love tiny servings of creme brulee because it means I end up getting a larger proportion of the caramelised sugar.
By the way, did I mentioned it was priced at only $15 including wine?
Sugar Hit is available 9 - 11pm every night during October - the Good Food Month.
