Yesterday we went to the lovely Gastro Park, Potts Point for lunch.
Due to amazing timing, Gastro Park are serving an incredible Game Of Thrones inspired degustation (7 March – 7 April). It being one of our favourite series, we thought it the only fitting way to appropriately celebrate Tom’s birthday.
We prepared for our feast with some gorgeous cocktails (Tom had the Bitter Melba and I, the Daisy De Santiago).
Here’s our menu
The Bleeding Stag came first.
Seared venison and a gorgeous salad of roast cherry tomatoes, radish, soft boiled quail egg.
Broth of Raven’s Claw and Rusty Armour
This was my favourite course of the day.
The most amazing quail broth served with pumpkin gnocci (which exploded like bubbles of deliciousness) and charred pepper.
Chunk of Wild Pig served on Godswood Log and forest fruits
The crackling was easily the best crackling i’ve ever had!
The roasted fruit was juicy and creamy and complimented the meat perfectly. We smashed this leg in 20 minutes, I’m sure of it!
Textural Dessert of the land with Dragon Egg,
The egg was made of white chocolate, fulled with passionfruit sauce. The mountain of white was vanilla cream dipped in liquid nitrogen, i believe. The earth; crumbs of delicious cakes (fruit cake and cookie dough, i think) there was also incredibly rich chocolate mousse.
All in all, a seriously decadent, delicious meal! I’ll definitely return to try the pumpkin gnocci in Gastro Park’s signature dish!
