Dona and Lorraine has been raving about The Wine Room (which is a part of Balgowlah RSL Club) for a very long time but we only managed to get ourselves there recently.
A realistic image of a fireplace in the middle of Australian summer? Really? Anyway, we had a glass of bubbly before dinner, sitting down and watching the flames dance while catching up with friends.
They have nice vegetarian options at The Wine Room. Here’s what we had:
Starter no 1: Fried zucchini flowers, goat’s cheese, basil and tomato cardamom chutney (above).
Starter no 2: Grilled haloumi, preserved lemon and cherry tomatoes (above).
Our main course was roast pumpkin, leek and labne tart, Roma tomato, rocket and dukkah (above).
Lorraine and I didn’t have dessert: we had port instead but this is John’s Creme Brulee.
