If you've been reading my blog for a while, you may realise that most of my food outings are located in the CBD. One friend said that anything beyond the harbour is considered far for me...which is true :P
I forgot what got into me that day but I went to Hemingway's Manly for dinner. Usually, I hate the beach. I'm one of those typical fobby Asian girls that would like to keep themselves as pale and as far away from the sun as possible. Oh, I also hate how sand gets stuck to your skin and leave their presence in the car.
Now that I look at it, Manly's not that bad. At least during the sunset when there's no sun, with silhouettes of pine trees in the foreground and beautiful orange clouds floating above .
Hemingway have their own unique way of presenting their menu. The menu is stapled inside books labelling as 'Food' and 'Liqour'.
Their dinner menu is served upstairs between Wednesday to Saturday and bar food is avaliable downstairs everyday after 4pm.
Bloody Mary $12
No. This is not a drink. It's a drink inspired entree consisting of cool gazpacho on the bottom, bouncy jelly, bread, white anchovies with a hint of piquillo to tingle your taste buds.
Hand cut chips with tomato and date relish. One reason that I went to Hemingway is to try their chips degustation but the waitress told me they stopped doing it 2-3 months ago. You don't know how upset I was with the news and couldn't get over it all night.
Charred sweet corn with lime butter, manchego cheese and black salt.
Mac 'n' Cheese $16
Four different types of cheeses covering the pasta and sprinkled with truffle.
Three Little Pigs $24
The piggie's three different cuts: belly, morcilla and tail with cauliflower, apple, sprouts, cider.
Chocolate marquise, milo, milk, coco pops, vanilla, salted caramel. The salted caramel was still warm when served...*drools*
