Sweet, Sour, Salt in Orange

My cultural fix for this week was seeing the Australian Ballet perform Don Quixote, along with girlfriends Kallee and Kate. To give us plenty of time for catching up, we decided to embrace Frostfest and enjoy bowls of winter soup at Sweet, Sour, Salt beforehand.

The large selection of Asian soups all sounded tempting, in the end I chose tea smoked salmon with white asparagus in a coconut broth whilst the others had a short soup (a broth with wontons and vegetables). Sweet, Sour, Salt has a good selection of local wines by the glass or you can BYO if you prefer. We happily slurped our way through the huge bowls of soup which were jam packed with flavour and the perfect dish for winter time. We chose the tasting plate for dessert, thinking we would be able to have a little spoonful of a few different options.

To our shock we received a massive tray with 3 whole desserts each including lime sponge cake with cream, creme brullee with poached pears and a selection of Asian inspired ice creams. We were by this point running a bit late so had to demolish our epic dessert in record time – despite the size, it was delicious.

Going to the ballet has always been a rare treat so the fact that I could enjoy the experience in rural
NSW was brilliant. The performance was sold out and got better and better as the acts progressed. A
memorable night all round, definitely something we would like to repeat next Frostfest.
