Overseas Passenger Terminal, Sydney

On the weekend, we celebrated my soon to be brother-in-law's 30th birthday! We went to Wildfire at the Overseas Passenger Terminal and wow, was it fantastic. We started with cocktails in the bar while we waited for everyone to arrive and from the moment we stepped into the restaurant, I could tell it was going to be a wonderful night. The staff and service were excellent from the get go.

As I have only recently started eating meat again after a 13 year hiatus, I was a little concerned about all the meat that was on offer. But I need not have worried.

The bread selection was delicious and the platter of entrĂ©es with curry puffs and king prawns was divine. We ate lamb, seafood, chicken and chorizo and it was all amazing. The wagyu beef I had was a little tough but most other people seemed to get lovely soft pieces so I can't judge that.

The grenache complimented all the meat perfectly. From Clare Valley, it was one of the most beautiful wines I have ever tried - I only wish I was smart enough to ask what it was called!

For dessert, everyone had the most delicious meringue with ice cream, hazelnut and chocolate in a mini cup and saucer and I honestly would have eaten a second one if I could have. By far, one of the best desserts I have ever tasted.

If you have never been before, I would strongly recommend it. 

Bon apetit'
