est - Establishment, Sydney CBD

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.

I'm not the hugest fan of souffle but you've had me sold on this one ;)

Nice - the flavours were so fresh!

Tina - I'm not a fan when they taste eggy, which I find overwhelming, but this was very good
