On Saturday night we headed out for my husbands office Christmas dinner. We went to Sepia on Sussex Street Sydney. We had the the degustation menu and the textures and flavours were out of this world. The service and food were equal to the three hats this restaurant has.

Seared Mandagery Creek venison, boudin noir, chocolate crumb, coconut yoghurt blackcurrant, shichimi
Wagyu rump, hatcho miso, sea urchin and wasabi butter, garlic chives, potato and kelp
We then continued our meal with three desserts.
