Opera Bar - Sydney Opera House

A couple of weeks ago, I went to see the Le Grand Cirque Adrenaline show at the Sydney Opera House. 

Naturally, it was off to the Opera Bar for pre-show drinkies and some food.  

My cocktail - Opera White Tea - Russian standard vodka, Poire William liqueur, Cointreau, Herradura tequila, pear puree and apple juice

This is the Opera tasting plate for two - it was like a delicious little high tea stand with all kinds of savoury goodies

This plate consisted of lentil dahl with pappadums (very moreish, I couldn't stop eating this!), fig, goats cheese and rocket salad; beef & burgundy pies

Marinated octopus salad, chicken and sesame nori rolls, thai fish cakes with nam jim sauce (these weren't really like thai fish cakes) and chorizo skewers

Yummy stand - perfect with drinks!

Before the show - it was such a lovely night, albeit crazily windy

During the break in the show - fail at picture taking because it was so damn windy!

Picture perfect!

On another note, Happy Australia Day everyone! I wish I was at the beach, but I'm down in Canberra again. What's everyone up to today?
