Tasmanian Scallops ($22) were tiny but packed with enough flavour to hold the line against two different textures of cauliflower broken up by capers and raisin at Dry Stone Restaurant.

Read all about it on my blog today:
Something awfully comforting about a schnitty by the sea at North Bondi RSL Club. Only schnitty I’ve ever eaten with a multi-million dollar view. #reviewforthcoming

Treated to a dinner at the private residence of His Excellency the Ambassador for the King of Morocco this evening. Highlights included bakkoula (kale with Moroccan spices) and a traditional sweet & sour pastilla (chicken, pistachio & rosewater in filo pasty). Delightful to learn more about Morocco, and its cuisine.
Stilton Ice Cream ($5.50) by Frugii Dessert Laboratory - just amazing. Salty, cheesy, rich mouth-coating milky joy!

Love the idea of savoury cannoli! These are from Cannoli Brothers at Capital Region Farmers Market.
It’s bold to call a dish “strange taste eggplant” but XO Restaurant nailed it with this one. #ReviewForthcoming
