If youve got that dreaded travel bug then you know the cravings for the exotic the different the new. New restaurant Cinnabar located in Blackheath captures all of that. Taking inspiration from local dishes from around the world their signature and novel "share plates" are packed full of flavours and textures that whisk you away on a culinary journey with each and every dish.
Start off with the crisp and tasty zaatar crust that goes incredibly well with the silky tahini hummus with pimiento and unusually fruity wild Australian olives. For a great wine pairing choose the Castalia Hawkes Bay Pinot Gris. With light flowery notes and a sweet palate its a perfect match to begin the night with.
Lip-smacking Caribbean flavour is in no short supply with the sizzling Jamaican prawns. With that characteristic crunch and unique blend of spice our team was left craving more of these delicious morsels for days after.
If its richness that youre after the braised beef cheek has the mellow notes of star anise and cinnamon that permeate the sweet fall-apart tender meat.
To finish dont go past the lemon curd meringue. Unlike any meringue youve had before the theatrics of the height the zing of the lemon the burst of the pomegranate jewels and crunch of the praline - well it wont last long. But it will be left etched in your memory.
The ladies who run the operation Mary-Jane and Corinne are the embodiment of hospitality creativity and professionalism. Make a booking at Cinnabar for your next foodie journey in the Blue Mountains!
