Q Dining, Circular Quay

This restaurant within Pullman Hotel has it all, scenery, food and refreshments

Overlooking the harbour of Circular Quay and being within a stone’s throw proximity of the Sydney Opera House, having a table at Q Dining should be on your list of restaurants to visit when you’re in Sydney. Floor to ceiling windows, check. Incredible food, check. And plenty choices of liquid lunches too if you’re so inclined. House-spiced spirits are used and this makes the cocktails taste sophisticated people.

Let me steer you towards the Charcuterie 3 for $23 to give you an insight into some unique cured meats. If like me you’re a freak for fermented foods, smear some of the piquant Mallorquina chilli infused spreadable salami onto your plate.

Plump Seared scallops, creamed rice, pork hock, sorrel is briny and meaty, a strong starter. A vegetarian entree, Black bean terrine, charred corn, celery, salt bush, milk sauce   the soft black bean has taken on an earthiness and perplexingly, the milk sauce is flavourless but lends a glossy sheen.

Rangers valley flank, aubergine, mustard leaf, mushroom ketchup, sesame is a little tough but ribboned with fat and marvellously flavourful. So perfectly cooked is the Ocean trout that the apricot flesh splits like butter and the skin is ultra crisp.

Don’t leave without ending on a sweet note because the choice paralysis is a wonderful one since everything sounds decadent. The gorgeous Aerated chocolate parfait, sorbet, raspberries dark, creamy rich and bittersweet or the caramel lightness of White rocky road, passion fruit, banana jam. Tis a quandry!
