Have you discovered that one restaurant experience that sets the bar above all others?
I most definitely have and the good news is, it’s right here in Wollongong!
Let me introduce you to The Kitchen Table for 6 at The Lagoon Seafood Restaurant.
As the locals will tell you, The Lagoon is a bit of an institution in the Illawarra. Diners have travelled far and wide just for the Lagoon experience. I would go so far as to say you haven’t fully experienced Wollongong without a visit.
Having been in business for 30 years, Lagoon knows how to keep things fresh and the Kitchen Table for 6 is certainly no exception.
With a mouth watering 7 course degustation menu with matching wines, complete with a backstage pass to Australia’s favourite restaurant, this is no ordinary experience.
Here’s what went down
It all starts when you and 5 of your buddies are seated in the lounge bar. While you are relaxing with glasses of bubbles and fresh oysters, you will be introduced to Executive Chef Emmanuel Efstathiadis and his talented team from the kitchen. Yep that’s right, feeling pretty special now.
From here you move front row and centre to the kitchen pass. This is where the VIP feeling really kicks in. Watch, listen and smell as each yummy dish is prepared and plated before you.
Executive Chef Emmanuel and his staff are a super friendly bunch who are only too happy to share their tips and tricks together with a secret or two. I learnt the best way to cook a crab and the art of preparing the perfect scallops…yum yum yum!
We even had a visit from local seafood guru Mr Kordakis. Not only was he up for a good laugh but he shared his knowledge on how to pick the best produce and what to look for. Those trips to the fish market won’t be so scary anymore.
The evening comes to a perfect end when you are seated at a table and served a Dessert Tasting Plate accompanied by a glass of Bird or Fire Semillion Botrytis. Absolutely heavenly.
So here’s my advice:
Recruit five of your best buddies, and get ready for a backstage pass to foodie heaven—super yummy food and a fascinating experience.
The Lagoon Kitchen Table for 6 is available Monday to Thursday at $220 per person.
