Starter – Local berries, roasted macadamia salad, seared crocodile, emu and kangaroo

Our dear friends, N. and C., had offered us a voucher to try some Aussie flavours. Yesterday, we dressed up and went to Tuka Restaurant, in West End, to discover a new type of cuisine. We had a voucher for the “Discovery Menu” and we truly enjoyed the journey of senses that the different courses brought us.

Entrée – Seared crocodile with vanilla and lemon emulsion with a peach and strawberry salad

The presentation was flawless and the food was incredible. Every element on the plate was thought trough and cooked to perfection!

Main Course – Seared kangaroo with pea purée and potato gratin served with a blackcurrant reduction

We decided to take their advice, and had a matching wine for each course which complemented the dishes very well. The wines too were from Australian vineyards and got our approval through and through.

Dessert – Berry and rose-water jelly with white chocolate mousse, macadamia ice-cream and honey mascarpone

The service was also top-notch. The waiters were polite, knowledgable and the food came to the table at perfectly timed intervals. It was a great night and we truly enjoyed ourselves.

Thanks N. and C.! You guys spoil us rotten 😉 xxx
