Sun and seafood

I was looking forward to a day out eating good food and seeing G again. I decided to return to Baroque and sample more of the menu because I loved this place from the first time I went there. After being indecisive for ten minutes (incredible menu!), I finally chose to have lemon lime bitters, mussels and some oysters to share.

First up were Sydney rock oysters on a bed of rock salt with a mignonette dressing. A perfect starter for a seafood-oriented lunch!

Next we had Spanish serrano ham (50g) drizzled with a tiny bit of olive oil. It was my first time trying serrano and I loved it as it was less salty than other types of jamon I’ve had in the past.

Then our plates of steamed Boston Bay mussels with white wine garlic cream came to our table and I was pleasantly surprised by the generous portion. This was a most satiating dish – bite-sized mussels in a flavoursome, velvety sauce… Although the richness was overpowering at times, it was fixed by munching on some fries.
