The Lake House

we were greeted by a kookaburra which to my surprise was real (ok… i get it.. i dont get out enough).  You could literally reach out and touch it.  Instead of going inside, we walked out to the back (as advised by the gentleman at the information hub).  the exterior was so pretty! lovely sunset on the lake…  floral cushions on wooden seats…  a must to wander to the back and have a look.

-the dip was amazing. i finished it off with the bread.

Entree: Lake House charcuterie and local salumi.
-didnt know where to start! so many little things on the plate

Entree: Sashimi mackerel, slow cooked octopus, gazpacho vinaigrette, fennel aioli, smoke paprika tuile.
-A’s entree.  Again, loved the presentation … and the octopus

12 hour roast suckling pig and fermented bean braise, pickles, Asian slaw, steam dumpling, plum
-the pig was full of flavor.  the steam dumpling was however a little on the weird side… maybe because it didnt taste like the tradition asian style ones that ive eaten.

Speciality beef.  I wasn’t really listening as the waiter described it… Beef from Tasmania.
– A’s beef.  so tender and juicy.  it was a massive piece though.

A selection of cmall sweet indulgences.  Spiced popcorn, friand, marshallow, Austrain shortbread, truffels, fudge, pate de fruits
– was so full by this stage.  think i was just chewing for the sake of chewing (how bad does that sound!… but yeah.. was really really full)

lovely place about reducing the food miles of sourced foods.
