We’re on the home stretch dudes! 4 sleeps till Christmas! Raise a glass to the holiday season and salut with drinks! Managed to catch up with that empty fridge girl where a delicious Russian Mule and From Russia with Love cocktail go down a treat at the Cortile Lounge.
To celebrate the opening of Moscow’s first InterContinental hotel, the Cafe Opera restaurant at the InterContinental Sydney (117 Macquarie St, Sydney) is featuring A Flavour of Moscow buffet from now till 31 Jan 2012 (lunch/$55pp, dinner/$65pp).
At the carving station there was a beautiful whole barramundi and a huge hunk of slow roasted beef rib. Gotta cater for the impending
doom Xmas so there was also glazed ham and roast turkey and stuffing available oh baby I do heart stuffing.
Russkis Deli had this glorious slab of Russian cheese that I couldn’t resist slathering onto fat wodges of bread. There was also platters filled with Kazatskaya sausage and Moscow Salami with Russian pickles.
The Smoked Sprats were plump juicy babies that were incredibly moreish and surprisingly not salty.
Hitting the hot food section where there was char-grilled spatchcock, seared John Dory fillets and sautéed King prawns with French mustard vinegar
Seafood selection of the day included Sydney Rock Oysters, Tiger prawns, Crystal Bay prawns, green lip mussels, and Blue Swimmer crabs.
Charcuterie section of prosciutto, Hungarian salami, chorizo and smoked salmon.
AND PATE OH YEAH SLABS OF PATE!
Gianna sure does love her cheese ahahaha
But of course dessert steals the show! Eclairs, macarons, blackforest cake, tiramisu, orange creme brulee, apple strudel and bread and butter pudding galore.
