Lunch at Chiswick Restaurant

Hello and happy 2017! I hope you’ve enjoyed some time off work and are feeling fresh and ready to take on the year ahead. My Younger Sister came back to Sydney for a week and we spent this time catching up with family and eating all the food. One of the places we went to was Chiswick Restaurant. I really wanted to eat here because they use seasonal produce grown in their own gardens, which I absolutely love and wish we could do at home. So while waiting for our veggie patch to sprout something edible, lunching at Chiswick was the next best thing.

We decided to order the Collective Menu so we could try a little bit of everything, and it all tasted so good! The roasted baby corn was surprisingly tasty, and the beetroot salad with honeycomb was perfect. Mum really enjoyed it, as well as the mortadella. The lamb shoulder was oh-so-soft and ah-may-zing-ly delicious, with Dad eating pretty much half of it himself. Both desserts were great, but I preferred the lemon and basil sorbet a bit more, which is fine since my Younger Sister preferred the chocolate mousse

Overall, it was a great meal and at AU$80 per person I think it’s quite reasonable. We were quite full by the end of the main course and we had to save room for our dessert. It’s a shame it’s so far away from where I live, otherwise I’d be eating at Chiswick often. I would love to come back in Autumn to see (and eat) what’s on their menu. And maybe I could have a sticky-beak in their gardens…
