The Little Snail

Being a tourist in Sydney, its hard not to get hook on popular food in the City especially when you are a foodie. I would say that The Little Snail is one of the best meals we had in Sydney for lunch. We got to know of this place through Trip Advisor Mobile Application as we were touring around the area for sight seeing and luckily such recommendation didn't go wrong.

The restaurant is quite accommodating in the sense that it was actually full house and we got our tables without any reservation. Environment was a bit noisy with chattering from the tables, however I do enjoy such French Culture Dining Restaurant with bright and airy ambiance. What's the best part was that we had some glimpse of afternoon sun shining onto our table which really warms up the Winter Season.

Since it was lunch time, we took up the 3 courses set meal at $38 AUD. For the entree, one of us have King Prawns. The 2 pieces of prawns were we coated with batter and deep fried served with lemon mayo and sweet chilli. Since we already knew it was a French Cuisine, we already prepared for the portion of food served.

Sides like breads can be order at an additional amount and we totally love the fragrant and well toasted Garlic bread as well as the french Baguette.

Garlic Bread $4.50 (AUD) & French Baguette $2.50 (AUD)
If you are worry that French Cuisine might not give the enough energy, do order side like their Creamy Mashed Potato to fill your stomach.

 Another Entree we had was Pate Maison with armagnac (a distinctive kind of brandy) flavoured duck liver pate with marinated champignons, date chutney and port vinaigrette. Since it was served in a paste form, the best to enjoy them maybe spreading them on top of the bread.

Perfectly cooked salmon was delicious and juicy served on sweet peas risotto and sauce vierge.

Succulent Beef Tenderloin was more than what we asked for! Serving in red wine jus for $3 surhcarge was simply justifiable as such combination was really heavenly. Other than that the dish was served with potato millefeuille which caught my total attention especially on thin layer of slice potato stacks that made up such dish.

Desserts aesthetics were too pleasing to the eyes that I couldn't bear to eat them but on the other hand if I drag on, the large scoop of hazelnut and praline ice cream will melt soon. Its base was made up of a layer of crunchy shortbread topped with the ice cream and topped with Grand Marnier Caramel.

Just can't stop praising about how excited I was to see such sweet little stuff on the plate. It looked like a bar of chocolate standing upright on the plate topped with Strawberry, well, the chocolate was actually hollow and acts like a wall, filled with savoury mousse. Unique and give a little surprises to diner like me.

Dont be fooled by such deceiving small servings of the French Cuisine as they can be very filling to the stomach.

If you are looking for some French Cuisine in Sydney The Little Snail’s repute for an authentically French culinary experience will definitely stands up.
