Swanson Hotel, Erskinville

Swanson Hotel in Erskinville is a great place for dinner with friends.

Up until last night I had no idea that the Swanson was hiding this little gem above the pub.  The top photo is the $26 - Chargrilled Salmon, Green Beans, Chermoula, Cannellini Puree.

The food was delicious as we made our way through their 4 course Autumn Menu I was completely smitten with the flavors and presentation of all 4 dishes. 

The four dishes comprised of Zucchini Flowers & Persian Feta, Smoked Eggplant Chutney. Then there was the Pork Belly Steamed Buns, Cucumber & Hoi Sin. The main was the above photo of Chargrilled Market Fish, Green Beans, Chermoula, Cannellini Puree. Finally there was dessert which was Sticky Toffee Pudding, Butterscotch Sauce, Double Cream & Spiced Walnut Crumble.

All dishes tasted fantastic, cooked perfectly and the sizing of each dish was well suited to a 4 course menu.  I had a really enjoyable experience. The service was good, the decor was nice and it was packed so you'll need to reserve a table before arrival.

Highlights: The salmon was chargrilled so it had a perfect charcoal taste along with a beautifully crust outside and still juicy on the inside. As opposed to the normal smoked salmon which i don't generally like the taste of.DH is not a salmon eater, she has been forcing myself to get into it and this ladies & gents is one of the best salmon dishes I've ever had.

Price: With a few bottles of wine and beer between the 10 of us it came up to $80 each. But without alcohol it's currently a half price special $35 per head.
