Went for dinner at Iso Lounge (Shop 2/8 Century Circuit, Norwest Business Park Baulkham Hills) a while ago I signed up to the Iso Lounge email newsletter and they’d just sent me their new autumn menu and the desserts sounded fantastic so we ventured forth and were seated by a polite n cheerful girl who bought us free appetisers of chilli pork meatballs.
For mains I ordered the Cashew Chicken- filled with cashews and parmesan on an array of chargrilled vegetables with pesto dressing ($28).
Mmm I love pesto! The chicken was soft and juicy and the skin crispy and the pesto was just the right amount of pesto-iness and I love rocket! the eggplant and zucchini maybe not so much tho.
Noods ordered the Saffron and Lime Goat- with tomato chutney, mango salsa, pita bread and cumin scented rice ($27).
Noods likes trying different things unlike me but I dont think he particularly liked this altho he liked the salsa which was both sweet and sour.
Dessert time! The major reason we came! I ordered the Mini Croquembouche -toffeed profiteroles with chocolate sauce and king island cream ($14).
Haha I love the word croquembouche! Doesn’t it just make you think about a tower of profiteroles filled with creamy custardy goodness?
Noods ordered the Poached Pear- red wine and star anise poached pear with honeycomb and egyptian fairy floss ($11)
Hehe doesn’t it look like the pear has hair mmm the fairy floss tastes like turkish fairy floss- nutty and the honeycomb just melted in your mouth!
