LuMI Dining Degustation - Pyrmont | My Kiki Cake - Sydney Food & Travel Blog (29 of 33)

Hi Lovelies!

One more day and the weekend will be upon us again. It’s my birthday tomorrow, so I will be out celebrating with plenty of cake included I’m sure. Today I am super excited to share some photos from LuMi dining, which is serving up some beautiful food in its equally beautiful location of Pyrmont.

LuMi is only a baby on the Sydney restaurant scene, having opened last year, but it is already causing a stir with fabulous write ups. We booked a table for a Wednesday evening, and prepared ourselves for the 8 course degustation that was to come. At nights, the only menu option is the degustation, but from Thursday – Saturday they offer a 4 course lunch as well.

To be honest, I have not experienced many multi course meals in Sydney – generally I find them very overpriced, and can’t justify the per person cost. You then have restaurants like LuMi serving their 8 course for $95 per person, which is extremely reasonable considering the quality and workmanship of each dish. I have listed out each of the courses below and the photos coincide with the order.  The lovely chefs sent us an extra pre-dessert dish, but I was too excited to eat and didn’t remember the details :S woops. So here we go….8 + 1 course of modern Italian with a Japanese twist cuisine…

Cheddar Tartlet, Corn, Parmigiano, Oregano Salt and Vinegar Rice Chips Potato and Rosemary Focaccia

Chawanmushi Tomato Water (forgot to grab a photo)

Marinated Bonito Apple and Celery Juice

Veal Tartare Tarragon Mayo, Capsicum ,Buckwheat

Spelt Ravioli Burnt Butter, Pumpkin, Avruga, Chives

Squid Ink Chitarra Orange Buerre blanc, Bottarga, Sea Urchin

Pork Jowl Spinach, Celeriac, Quinoa (on the evening there was another meat option with photos of both below)

Evergreen Sorrel,Lemon Basil, Mint, Shiso, Parsley

(the additional pre-dessert dish)

Milk Ice cream Cherries, Citrus Sabayon, Yoghurt Crumble
