The Muse Restaurant is clearly the best in the Hunter Valley.
A good start …
Outside the menu, I first tried oysters prepared in three different ways.
Now the four-course menu began
1st course: Celeriac, hung yoghurt, truffled pecorino, yolk, Japanese parsley
2nd couse: Randall family koshihikari risotto, Binnorie goat’s curd, wasabi, spring pea, radish, mint, lemon myrtle
3rd course: Slow cooked lamb breast, black garlic glaze, salt baked beetroot, garlic scapes, pickled mulberries
4th course: ‘Liquorice Stick”, Daintree dark chocolate mousse, wild fennel, raspberry sorbet
I paid AUD 229 (CHF/USD 166, EUR 146) together with two plates of oysters and the wine pairing, which included wines from outside the Hunter Valley. Tipping is not common in Australia.
The description of my one month trip from Sydney to Hunter Valley, then to Wilsons Promotory, via Great Ocean Road with the 12 Apostles to the wine regions Coonawarra, McLaren Vale, Barossa Valley and to Melbourne can be found on this website.
