Frenchie took me to Quay, a firm favourite in the Sydney food scene. In 2013, the restaurant was voted no. 48 on the San Pellegrino World's Best Restaurants.
Located at Sydney Overseas Passenger Terminal, with bang-on views from the Opera House to the Harbour Bridge.
The food was utterly spectacular! Hang on, and I'll walk you through the menu...
|Amuse bouche of soft white carrot puree, edible flowers and caviar (complimentary).|
|Crispy confit of pig belly, gentle braise of abalone and cuttlefish, handmade silken tofu, japanese mushrooms, chive flowers.|
|Congee of North Australian mud crab, fresh palm heart and egg yolk emulsion.|
|Amuse bouche of Truffle consommé (complimentary).|
|Squab and abalone, rare cultivated greens, fresh jersey milk curd, anchovy and seaweed broth.|
|Red claw yabbies, garlic scented custard, yabby velvet.|
|My fav dish - Berkshire pig jowl, maltose crackling, prunes, cauliflower cream, perfumed with pure kernel oil.|
|Just as you think you've died and gone to heaven, they bring out the desserts.|
|The amazing raspberry granita and vanilla Snow Egg.|
|I can safely say that if you haven’t tried their snow egg, you haven’t lived.|
|Jersey cream, pedro ximenez, salted caramel, prune, confetti.|
|...and wash it all down with Sunlight Surprise and Harbourview cocktails.|
So for a special occasion where you don't mind spending a few dollars and wish to enjoy some of the best views while dining on the Sydney Harbour, I would recommend Quay. Friday - Sunday evenings are booked out 6 months in advance. Make sure you plan ahead and book early! :)
