There are a few things I love about this time of year:
1. Snuggling up on the couch with a wine and my one
2. European getaways
3. Every restaurant releases their new seasonal menu…
Pelicano invited me in for exactly this reason.
I invited my food crew… (Yes, we even have a WhatsApp group especially to chat about food.)
Jessie and Wes came along with open arms. Jessie, in a dusty pick number (which I almost ordered online over dinner), and Wes – who you’d have easily mistaken for a male fashion blogger (his outfit!!)
Just as winter hit Sydney, we entered Pelicano – a venue with a European Summer theme with colourful pop art lining the wall.
A few swanky waiters greeted us. Taking our seat along the dimly lit tables – the candles and roses caught my eye – creating perfect vibes for a date night or drinks with the girls.
I’m a girl with a one-track mind. Wine! But cocktails are something I already knew Pelicano was famous for.
We left it up to the mixologist.
With names like Snowball and French Clover – we knew we were in for a treat.
The menu is designed to be shared. Mentioning a few of our favourites, our waiter insisted he’d look after the rest.
Fortunately we ate salads for lunch.
The fresh catch of the day – extra juicy extra large raw slices of tuna.
Pipies (otherwise known as clams)
slow cooked lamb ribs with red miso
Not only did the entree leave us devouring mouth-watering titbits, it also left us questioning how’d we’d get through second and third course.
Jerk Chicken with sweet potato puree and kale slaw – was almost too pretty to eat.
Juicy beef tenderloin, horseradish mash, king mushrooms and veal jus – considered ordering seconds.
Agreeing to dessert (it’s winter!), we ordered two.
