Foveaux – Surry Hills, Sydney

Hi!

I haven’t been doing much lately, just being really lazy. I recently finished my break and am now back to college. Break was nice and relaxing with a lot of eating and baking and shopping. I visited the Good Food and Wine Show which was great! Bought HEAPS of things to fill up the pantry, our granny trolley was SO heavy by midday. The stand outs this year were all the fruit ciders on offer. I have a new love for pear cider. Yum! But onto the food..

I recently visited Foveaux with the boyfriend. I had heard some good things from the ‘sister-in-law’ and some others, so when there was a deal to visit the restaurant, I jumped at the opportunity.

Oyster with chardonnay vinegar pearls and salmon roe

Caramelised pigs head and black pudding terrine, crunchy breaded ears, apple, celery, breakfast radish and red wine paint.

Crispy chicken wings, morel cream, sweet corn, jamon, scampi and shiso.

Mushroom pearl barley, parsley, fondant leeks, crispy enoki mushrooms and carrot air.

Roast king salmon, zucchini puree, cuttle fish, green olive jelly, coriander and popped skin.

Green beans with confit garlic, oregano and lemon.

Salad of pineapple, milk sorbet and macadamia nut praline.

Strawberry parfait, pistachio wafers, peppermint tea jelly and strawberry sorbet.

Overall the food was pretty good. The only criticism I have about the food is that the salmon was REALLY fishy. It was to the extent where it was giving me a headache. However, all the dishes were so light, yet filling. The service is great and even though the restaurant is quite open, the ambiance is still quite romantic and private. It’s a nice place for a date with someone special. ❤

When the bill came, it made me shocked but it also made me smile. The shock…my thin glass of orange juice, filled with ice cost $7. The smile…

…and yes I did stay in the lines.

Happy nom nom nom-ing!
