Offering shared, nourishing and wholesome meals, Pink Salt is an establishment that’s both casual and elegant with a distinct Mediterranean vibe. With a new spring menu out we decided to pop in and have a try for ourselves.
Sour Apple Vodka Martini – Mickey Finn Sour Apple & Vodka
Starting off the night with a sharp and sweet Sour Apple Martini. The perfect way to start the night with a touch of class and your hands around a glass.
Pino’s Dulce Vita Charcuterie
A fantastic cold meat selection of sopressa, bresaola and truffle prosciutto are served with wholgrain mustard, sweet and sour pickles and charred brasserie bread. Great to pick on over a cocktail or two while you’re deciding on what to eat.
Sydney Rock Oyster, Ponzu Granita, Fried Eschalot
I’ve got to admit I’m not a very big fan of Sydney Rock Oysters, preferring Pacific Oysters much more, however the ponzu granita gave them a refreshing and slightly tart flavour.
Octopus, Crab Cakes, Citrus, Herbs
Quite a nice dish, the crab cakes were golden and crisp with a comforting soft crab and potato filling, whilst tender discs of octopus await underneath with a light and creamy dill sauce.
Slow Cooked Lamb Shoulder
On to mains with this hefty slow cooked lamb shoulder for two. While the meat was very well cooked, easily falling off the bone, I did wish there were stronger flavours seasoning it. A touch of garlic? A sprig of rosemary? That goes for the accompanying roasted veggies too.
Buttermilk Panacotta, Milk Crumb, Strawberry Sorbet
Dessert time, and for this we chose the buttermilk panacotta. Soft, sweet and like velvet on the tongue, I really enjoyed the how richly creamy it was, whilst the tartness of the strawberry sorbet perfectly matched it for a great balanced dish.
The bar level offers a great space to mingle with a drink or sit and chat in comfy casual elegance.
