3Weeds is a Sydney pub that has great atmosphere, delicious counter meals and a hatted restaurant. This time round we dined at the restaraunt which is run by Leigh McDivitt, who has worked at other places like Est., Bistro CBD and Lotus. The restaurant had more subdued lighting than the rest of the pub creating a more relaxed atmosphere, it almost seemed a world away from the busy pub just outside the door.
Kingfish sashimi with horseradish cream – The Kingfish was firm and fresh, the horse radish had some heat to it and Yuzu juice provided some tang.
Open squid ink lasagne $23 – This was my first time trying squid ink pasta, it was hard for me to discern what squid ink taste like as all the other element were so robust and strong. The scallop was juicy and just the right shade of caramel and had absorbed the flavours from the surrounding sauces.
Saltbush lamb loin and breast $38 – Rare lamb that had been seared on the outside. The jus was really clear and full of lamb flavours.
Beans with shallots and sliced almonds – For such a simple dish, these beans were a great accompaniment to our meal. The slivered almonds added to the crunchiness of just cooked beans.
Mashed Potatoes – Mashed potatoes always taste so freaking good when you dont have to see how much butter goes into them, these were no exception. Creamy, buttery and smooth.
Fish, scallop ravioli and black pudding. – Even though the Dory was the main element in this dish; the black pudding and ravioli when eaten with the fish gave a distinctly different taste to the fish. On its own the fish was moist and the skin was almost like pork crackling.
Pearl barley and sweet corn risotto $30 – Tasted amazing, really great balance of nuttyness from the barley and sweetness from the corn. For me this dish was my favourite from the night.
Merang and Sorbet with berreies $16 – This was very refreshing to the palate. The blood orange sorbet was sweet and tart while the merang and custard provided richness to the desert.
Desert – Hazelnut Souffle $18 – Joe and I have been on a Souffle kick at present, when ever there is one on the menu we order it. This particular one can with maple syrup and vanilla ice cream.
