'The Winery'

I was absolutely spoiled this year for my birthday!  First I headed out to celebrate with 3 of my girlfriends who also have birthdays in the same week, we ended up at a place called 'The Winery' in Surry Hills.

It was absolutely fabulous.  Everything from the ambiance, to the drinks, the food and of course the company!  And it was very reasonably priced which made it even better.  We kicked off the evening with a jug of White Wine Sangria - chardonnay, cointreau, martini bianco, mint, lychee, lemon.  We were quite pleased when later on we realized all the jugs are half price on Sunday, we decided to order another one!  This time we got the Rose Wine Sangria - rose, strawberry, martini bianco, lemon.

For appetizers we shared the Stuffed Mushrooms with Ricotta, Pesto & Pine nuts, they were so good I decided to recreate my own version for tablenosh the following week.  We also shared the 'rock lobster salad' which was exceptional especially for the lobster lovers.

For mains, we decided to share 3 different things 'Champagne, Grape & Chicken Pie' (it was seriously the best pie I have ever had), 'Pumpkin, Ricotta & Sage Ravioli' and 'Barramundi in a Bag'.  They were all delicious but the pie was definitely my favorite.

And then there was the dessert...double chocolate brownie w/ fairy floss, cheesecake w/lime mascarpone and banana date butterscotch pudding w/ caramel ice cream!  Delicious!  It was indeed a fabulous night with the girls!
