So, it’s already the second week into the 2006 Good Food Month, and this is only just my first encounter for the year… I promise there will be more!
Bookings are essential, says the website. But are they really? I scored fabulous window seats, with a stunning view to Sydney Harbour and the Opera House -without a booking. The waiter introduced the Sugar Hit tasting plate, took away our dying candle for replacement, and ensured us that he would “remove” the cockaroach which was creeping beneath my seat. A good ten minutes later, he turns with a bottle of Brown Brothers Moscato. No candle, and no removal of the pest. The Moscato was beautiful, it was so refreshing, sweet and fruity.

GFM 06 - Sugar Hit - Park Hyatt - tasting plate

The tasting plate featured [left – right] the milk chocolate and caramel creme brulee, chocolate and saffron infused poached pear, and the milk chocolate and coconut parfait. The brulee was so good, I thought it deserved it’s own picture. The poached pear was subtly sweet and had a lovely soft grainy texture. The parfait on my plate actually collapsed… and tasted quite ordinary.

GFM 06 - Sugar Hit - Park Hyatt - Milk Choc Creme Brulee

The highlight… milk chocolate and caramel creme brulee. I love tiny servings of creme brulee because it means I end up getting a larger proportion of the caramelised sugar.
By the way, did I mentioned it was priced at only $15 including wine?
Sugar Hit is available 9 – 11pm every night during October – the Good Food Month.

    I love the harbourkitchen&bar.

  • Lovely pics (and the brulee sounds divine)! Shame the service wasn’t a bit better, but I do love HKB and it’s been flawless on each visit.

  • oops. i thought i’d commented on this already. i saw it a few hours before we headed here for our hit so it was a nice sneak preview.
    looks like we got a much bigger portion size of the parfait. i guess it depends who’s on. we got lucky 🙂

    Hi there Ben – I love HKB too! Gorgeous location & scrumptious food 🙂
    Hey Julia – Thanks! The service seems like a hit & miss… but I cleaned up every little bit of my dessert tasting plate!
    Hi Helen – How good was the brulee! Maybe they gave you a double portion because it was a less-busy weekday night? Ah, I might just have to try it again 😛
