Sydney Food Diary: Pei Modern, the Rocks, 2016


Pei Modern is named after the architect I. M. Pei, who was responsible for Collins Place in Melbourne. After eating at the Sydney location last year, a pre-theatre meal (and very good), I’ve been on their mailing list ever since. Here’s the review from last year… But it took a special meal, called Paddock to Plate, to tempt us back.

IMG_5480It really was quite a special meal. Matching amazing drinks from Young Henrys to a meal where the star was the venison, and the producer, Mandagery Creek, gave a little introduction to themselves and their work.

Each dish was fantastic, with a twist: a burst of colour or a strong flavour or interesting technique. The hasselback potatoes were incredible and we’ve already, successfully, recreated the dish at home. Jerusalem artichokes for dessert was a surprise, and I don’t think burnt bread would be a flavour of ice cream that I’ve tried before.
