Pelicano

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

... and

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.

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.
