est is another one of those places that I've only heard rave reviews about, so when their pre-seven heaven deal was on during January, a girl's night out was in order.
est has been awarded 3 hats every year since 2004, which is a pretty impressive feat.
Italian buffalo mozzarella, nectarine, serrano jamon
This dish came out and stole the showing - so pretty and fresh!
Prawn and moreton bay bug ravioli, young leeks, coriander, lemongrass vinaigrette
This sounded absolutely delicious on the menu, so I knew this was going to be my entree.
Pan roasted mulloway fillet, green peas, snap peas, snow peas, bonito and parsley
For mains, it was a no brainer, as the other dish was lamb. The mulloway was nicely cooked and served on a bed of various peas. It was good, though I think the entrees stole the show in comparison.
Until dessert came along...
macadamia praline ice cream, mango, lime – tequila sorbet, coconut jelly
I would best describe this as summer on a plate, especially loved the sweet mango paired with the macadamia praline ice cream.
Morello cherry souffle with raspberry sorbet
This is definitely the best souffle I've ever had - the height, perfect airiness, like eating a cloud!
I can definitely see why est has three hats, everything from the service to the food was impeccable, and it is definitely on my birthday eat list now.
