Pei Modern – Sydney

Pei Modern Now Permanently Closed 


Located in the rear of the lobby of the Four Seasons in the Rocks is Pei Modern Marks Best new restaurant in Sydney. Its a large space set around an open plan kitchen despite its location in a five star hotel Pei Modern has a casual ambiance.

This was an impromptu visit so I did not have my camera with me so I snapped away my iPhone6+ thinking like in the  past the pics were not going to be ‘good’ to use in a blog post. When I checked out the pics on I found they were better than expected , good for a post. This is great for me as so many times I found myself at a restaurant without my camera and I don’t end up blogging about it. No doubt in a darker place the phone still wont cut it but for a well lit restaurant if I leave my camera at home or just cant be bothered taking it (this happens frequently) I now have an alternative.

Culatello ‘King of Prosciutto’ 23 – delicious mild tasting meat that just melts in your mouth served with thin slices of pear.

Kingfish “Ham from the Sea” $16 – a standout dish the fish is cold smoked for two weeks and this gives it a strong flavour not to dissimilar to a cured meat but with a fishy taste coupled with a wafer thin slice of rock melon makes a perfect taste combination.

Tiger prawns and slow-cooked pineapple $23 – I was a little disappointed with this dish it sounds great on the menu however it lacked any standout flavor too salty for my taste and the pineapple was not that sweet to offset the saltiness of the prawns.

Ricotta dumplings, kale, hazelnuts $30 its not often i deiced to order a veterinarian dish but this one sounded good and I was not disappointed. The dumplings are soft and fluffy with a butter taste sitting on a bed of kale topped with crunchy hazelnuts creating a complete flavor & texture

Spiced doughnuts, blood orange, whey butterscotch $16 – all of the items on the dessert menu sounded great it was hard to choose as everything appealed to me. The doughnuts are a simple dessert done really well. The blood orange and the butterscotch go great with the spice of the doughnuts.
