Est. – Sydney

Est is situated on George St above Establishment and is he headed up by Peter Doyle it currently has two SMH chef hats although in the past it has held three.

The menu for lunch is $69 , $95 or $118 for two , three or four courses. The service is impeccable when the food comes out the plates are both placed presented on the table at the same time in what seems like choreographed movements.  All the staff are so knowledgeable about the dishes not just the ingredients but how its prepared and cooked.

The last time a ate at Est was a few years ago I remember bring very impressed by it,  it was also one of the first posts on this blog.  Fast forward to toady I was equally as impressed the presentation & taste of the food together with the amazing service made for a very enjoyable lunch at Est.

Salad of spanner crab, almond cream, baby zucchini, heirloom tomato jelly, basil such a beautiful dish and it tastes as good as it looks! As it was described in the menu as a salad I was not expecting something like this to come out.

Burger Project – Sydney

 

I have always been a big fan of Neil Perry’s Rockpool burger so when I first heard of Burger Project I knew it was something I defiantly wanted to check out. I like the whole concept of the shop just simple burgers made with great ingredients served in a casual refined fast food atmosphere.

I really like the burger here & I have all ready been back a few times since I first had it and I will no doubt be back again.

Cheese & Bacon $9.50 – Grass fed beef , bacon , cheese, pickles, tomato , lettuce and secret sauce.  The meat in the patty is moist and full of flavor cooked slightly rare with some seasoning topped off with cheese & bacon. The salad is fresh and crisp. The only let down I would say is the bun not that it is bad just not up to par with the rest of the burger.

The Korean Burger $8.90-  how to make a Korean burger take a regular on and put Kim chi on it  interesting combination but it did work well combining two things that don’t normally go together.

Wings large $9.00-  the wings come with a hot sauce that I got it separate on the side lucky because when I tried it it was way to hot for me. The wings are OK on there own with a salt & pepper coating but to get the full flavor you need the sauce. Like there chips they are deep fried but not oily.
