Having said this, Richard gathered a few of us for an all you could eat rib fiesta (Note: this is only available on Wednesdays) ! Greeted by the lovely owner Josh and his lovely staff, he put on an awesome rib feast that was absolutely delicious!
Beef Ribs – Blue gum smoked ribs marinated in sake, soy, mirin and ginger finished with coriander, fresh chili, shallots, sesame and black vinegar
You know the ribs are good when the meat falls off the bone in one clean sweep. These ribs melted in your mouth and were a pleasure to eat. Flavours are a complete standout!
Pork Ribs – Blue gum smoked ribs marinated in sake, soy, mirin and ginger finished with coriander, fresh chili, shallots, sesame and black vinegar
I’m a huge pork rib fan!!!! I ate so many pork ribs I felt like I was being a scab because the bones were so big in comparison to the beef. Ribs were soft and tender, the chili bits at the bottom was deliciously tempting that I began picking bits that had fallen off the bone and into the bottom of the bowl.
Edamame beans with Murray River pink salt
When there’s meat, you gotta have greens! Edamame beans were addictive that I couldn’t stop picking at it! Probably explains why I got full quickly.
Japanese Potato Salad
Light mayo salad which was really refreshing in terms of taste. Unfortunately I didn’t get to eat a lot of it as I was saving my stomach space for the ribs
Ribs and fries… you just can’t go wrong!!! I can’t seem to resist fries when they’re on the table.. mmm fried to perfection ^_^!
Cabbage with wattleseed mayonnaise?
At first, I was a bit puzzled by the plate of cabbage on the table but when I started to dip this in the condiment, it soon became addictive! Steph and I kept eating this god damn cabbage!
When Josh, lay the sake glasses on the table.. you could hear us girls go “awwwww I want those SAKE cups” seriously they are super cute and cool… I really do want a set!
Perfection! – This would have to be the BEST lemon delicious desserts i’ve ever had!! I haven’t had many in my life but my goddd this was “EFFING” BRILLIANT!!!! I would love to have this all to myself! The texture melted in your mouth and the lemony goodness was mind blowing.
Chocolate fondant with wattleseed ice-cream and sour plum jam
Chocolate cake was delicious, rich and moist. The wattleseed ice-cream was my favourite. I’m in love with the texture and the taste! Probably because, I’ve been going through a wattleseed phase at the moment. (My favourite chocolate flavour is “Wattleseed” @ Adora)
As for the sour plum jam, I thought it had an interesting taste, one which is very strong and dominating and quite strange at the same time.. when combined with the ice-cream and chocolate fondant. Nevertheless still very very good.
Wattleseed creme brulee with azuki red bean
I love the sound of breaking into a creme brulee dessert. As soon as you hear that crunch, you know your in heaven! The creme brulee was smooth and creamy and the wattleseed created a really nice subtle nutty taste which I thoroughly enjoyed
