Are you making the most of the Sydney Festival? Why not take advantage of Walsh Bay Kitchen's special Sydney Festival menu. With a glass of wine and two courses for $49 or three courses for $59. MW and I head there for a relaxing dinner.
A short stroll from the bus stop and we are at Walsh Bay Kitchen. Walsh Bay Kitchen is such a great location with close access to Roslyn Packer Theatre and the other Wharf theatres for Sydney Festival events.
The decore is modern and casual. I'm ready for a drink! I head for a classic cosmo and MW goes for a Kosiciuszko beer. Cheers!!!
So what is the Sydney Festival Special? It's a glass of wine with your choice of two courses for $49 or three courses for $59.
I go for the three courses and am immediately tempted by the Arancini. The cheesey rice balls topped with more cheese and with a mayonnaise sauce are homely and enjoyable to eat. I could tell MW was jealous as he ordered the duck which were flakey pieces on a salad. I end up sharing with MW because that's what a good partner does.
For mains, I order the 1 minute steak as I'm in need of some red meat. This dish makes me feel like it's a Sunday dinner with the thin steak, gravy and rosemary potatoes. MW goes for the pork chop which looks really tasty. Although he comments that he would have wanted a few more thick cut chips.
We share some desserts with a few other foodies and MW is happy as he gets try more desserts. Below is the Caramel Mousse sandwich was was DELICIOUS!
Finally, who can resist a dark chocolate cake with lime sorbet? I can't resist and this particular one from Walsh Bay Kitchen was so delicious and rich. It's a good portion so you don't get too sick from the richness.
Summary: The desserts would have to be a highlight for me. Otherwise Walsh Bay Kitchen delivers reliable entrees and mains if you are looking for a bite to eat before a show. $59 is great for 3 courses when you consider this includes a glass of wine.
