Warning – post mentions the eating of small cute critters, don’t read on if you find this offensive.
Yep, Alison’s comment had me laughing and squirming at the same time, after I’d mentioned the itty bitty bunny rack I was presented with on Saturday night.
As you can see from the menu below there was a lot of challenging foods on this menu. Lots of firsts for me, rabbit, black pudding, pigeon (including pigeon LEG meat, we were told), pork belly and oxtail. Yep, the petting zoo. I’m not even going to try and wax lyrical about the food, let’s just say it was a roller coaster of foodie tastes and surprises and some delicious New Zealand Sauv Blanc, heavy on the passionfruit, just the way I like it.
The only one I really struggled with was the black pudding, but I think it was a texture thing. This is one of my favourite restaurants in Perth however I was a little disappointed with the timing of our dego. Something went squiffy and we started off well, then there was this lapse and then all of a sudden a flurry of dishes, bang, bang, bang. What you don’t see on the menu is we also opted for the additional 3 chef’s choices. I can’t even remember what they were, though they were delicious. We started at 8pm and finished after 12pm!
Excuse the flash on the bunny below, the lighting was very low and I had to resort to flash to share the itty bitty ribs with you guys. One of the ribs could fit whole inside my mouth, for scale 🙂
When we arrived this is what greeted us, bunches of cutlery. This wasn’t all of it, we needed additional cutlery at some point. It was a fun night with my knitting buddies, I reckon something like this should be done annually, you guys agree?
