The reminisce continues with an earlier visit to Pony Dining at The Rocks in Sydney.
Situated on the corner of Argyle Street and Kendall Lane, Pony Dining was originally a former bond warehouse. Restaurant designer, Michael McCann, transformed the historic building into the stunning dining space it is today. The restaurant features a large open kitchen with a pony hide clad counter, 10 meter long dining table on the outdoor deck, an intimate lounge for pre-dinner drinks, heritage brick walls, and commissioned woven art hangings – making this space a truly unique dining destination.
In my attempt to “eat less” and “more healthy”, I ordered only three items.
Freshly shucked oysters, eschallot vinaigrette
Beautiful and fresh rock oysters from NSW. I could eat this all night, only prohibited by the high iodine and cholesterol.
Slipper lobster tails, charred lettuce, jalapeño salsa
Also called Morton Bay bugs, they are the best when you eat them in Australia and no where else. Succulent and plump, they are the size of lobsters and paired with the yummy salsa, the little bit of heat but a whole heap of flavours.
Snapper, white pudding, cannelloni beans, heart of palm, wholegrain mustard, dill
They have used freshly harvested heart of palm, and it’s like a white asparagus in texture but more taste. The snapper was pan fried perfectly.
With the portions they provide, there’s no room for dessert. Great meal as always, and the menu changes often. Book in advance to avoid disappointment.
