Our last night in Tasmania we ate at the slight “fancy” hotel restaurant because it was convenient and looked pretty good.
Sadly, I didn’t really chronicle some of the more casual local fare that really stood out like the fresh oysters and scallops, or even better the scallop curry “pie” (I had at least 3 of these).
Squash soup with a bit of curry and some considerable spice (cayenne?). I liked it. My wife did not because she doesn’t like spicy.
Rocket and parmesan salad with aged balsamic.
Curried scallops with date and tamarind chutney, hung yoghurt and coriander. Not bad but I preferred the aforementioned scallop curry pies.
Cheese pasta for the boy. He ordered 2 of them!
Pan roasted salmon fillet with beetroot gnocchi, golden beets, goat’s curd and baby chard leaves.
Roasted lamb rump with cannelloni beans, zucchini, asparagus, pistou and pickled white anchovies. The anchovies gave it a bit of an umami vibe.
Vanilla creme brulee with biscotti.
Overall, not a bad meal at all for upscale modern Australian.
