Quay




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 consommĂ© (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! :)
