Enticed by the recent reviews and blog posts, I made my way to LL Wine and Dine in Potts Point last Saturday for a leisurely weekend lunch.
We pretty much had the place to ourselves, and chose to sit outside since it was a relatively nice day
First things first... the cocktail list!
Hong Kong Island Ice Tea - Built with the 5 whites, topped with lychee and lemon juice then finished with ginger beer. Loved this version of the long island, and quite a lot of the other cocktails sound great too, so can't wait to go back and try them.
Grilled Hokkaido scallops topped with cauliflower foam served with salmon caviar and XO sauce flavoured squid ink gnocchi
These were some of the biggest and juiciest scallops I'd ever come across, which was a sign of things to come...
Pork belly buns - cooked in traditional Hakka Granny's way served with crushed peanuts, coriander and chilli sauce
And hidden in this little steamer...
Were the buns, ready to be stuffed with pork belly goodness!
My overflowing bun. I loved these so much, they were so tasty!
And then onto mains:
Singaporean jumbo king prawn curry - with capsicum, broccoli and sugar snap served with fritter dipping sicks
When I saw this, I knew we'd over ordered, it was HUGE! The serving was very generous, and in the curry were the biggest prawns I've ever seen in my whole life:
Humungous prawn - it was so hard to pick them up with the chopsticks because they were so heavy!
Steamed rice to soak up all that wonderful curry
Braised beef cheek served with smoked bacon and sweet potato mash, sugar snap, carrot and garlic-soy jus
This was a great dish too, the meat was fall apart tender and anything that includes mash is always good.
Sadly, after all this, I didn't have any room to try dessert *gasp*... I'll be back for you though!
