Haha, my blog post is so out of date... This was almost 1 year ago since I went to Sydney. Going there this time, I of course really miss eating fine-dining. Seeing one of my friend went there and she loves it so much, I booked a dinner at Sepia.

Tonight, 3 of us, Ball, N'Ping and I
Couldn't stand taking picture in front of the restaurant. lol

We were undoubtedly having degustation menu

A butter ball, how cool is that?

 We opted for choosing our wine by glass instead of wine matching. The sommelier is so great recommended us different wines. Love every wines he served us !

I think its a tuna tartar, gosh, too long I couldn't remember -*-

Sashimi of Hiramasa Kingfish, yukari, beetroot, pickled aka seaweed, belle radish, smoked trout roe, violets

It was so delish ! Also the crispy duck skin is too die for.

Sashimi of yellow fin tuna, Jamon Iberico, poached quail egg,soy dashi jelly,onion cream, wasabi powder, puffed buckwheat, red elk.

Very very beautiful dish, again, love it.

Butter poached Port Lincoln squid, barley miso cured egg yolk, lemon, wild woodland sorrel

I am not a fan of raw squid but this blown me away. The texture and the flavour is so amazing ! Incredible texture !
Scampi tails cooked over Japanese charcoal, shellfish custard, crystallised wakame, dill pickled cucumbers, smoked trout roe, shiso
Once the scampi was in my mouth, I was about to cry... hahaha, It was THAT GOOD !

Roasted pasture fed lamb loin, lamb breast, pine mushroom, Chinese artichoke and celery stem, goat milk, seeded rye, pumpkin, rosemary and brown butter vinaigrette

Interesting enough, seafood here is way too good, so then when comes to meat. It seems pale in comparison. Not bad just like I said. Seafood is too good..haha

Seared rolled David Blackmore wagyu beef, chestnut mushroom, roasted red onion juice, wasabi fried potato and kombu crumb, citrus soy

We were really full at this stage. But yeah, always have space for dessert ! I couldn't recall this one. I think its meringue with lemon cream and sorbet? sure it tasted good :D

“Summer chocolate forest” – soft chocolate, hazelnut and almond praline, rose geranium cream, sour cherry sorbet, blueberry jellies, green tea, licorice, chocolate twigs, crystallised fennel fronds

It was really impressive dessert !

Sorry for the very uninformative, it was too long time remember the details. However, all I remember is I love seafood dishes here very much. The service is great especial the sommelier is very skillful, love all wine he offered. One of the really enjoyable experience. HIGHTLY RECOMMEND !
