On Saturday night I went with my friends Megan and Bee to Sumac restaurant in Darling Harbour. I had seen this restaurant a few times before, tucked away in the corner next to the docks hotel, but had never actually been. I saw jenius' post on it and decided to give it a go, plus it's right near where i live, so bonus!
We decided to start off with some cocktails while we decided what we were going to order. Clockwise from the front I had a good old cosmopolitan (which was good, but i make a mean cosmo, so it wasn't up to my standard), Megan had the Lychee Martini which was yummy, lychees are good and Bee had a Strawberry Daiquiri which i wasn't a big fan of. I always find that daiquiris are never sweet enough for me and i want a drink that i can drink and not have it get stuck in the straw. All the cocktails were $14.50, which is quite reasonable for a restaurant.
Mix Dips Plate - Hummus, Babaganouj, Tzatziki & Bread - $12
For starters we had the mix dips plate. Yum I could live on dips and bread, but i would have preferred a bit more bread, but then i probably should have ordered some more, so i shouldn't complain. Next up the mains.
King Prawn Linguine - $29
I decided on the King Prawn linguine. I was going to go for the lamb shank tagine (i love a good shank) but i had some the other day and hadn't had pasta for ages, so chose this instead. It was very tasty and the prawns were big and flavourful which was good to see. It was a bit spicy though, which i didn't expect. Luckily i like all things hot otherwise i would have not been able to eat it. It was a huge serving too.
Vegetarian (Roast Pumpkin, Pine Nuts, Caramelised Onion, Feta, & Coriander) Pizza - $16

I couldn't believe how many different jewellery shops there were and how they could all be profiting from having a stall here. Anyway we found some lovely rustic things for Bec and Robert (they live in the country) so it was well worth the walk from Pyrmont to Paddington! We also sampled some gorgeous smokey garlic mayo from one of the stalls inside the building who also sold chocolates of which i tried the white chocolate pistachio. Now i am not normally a fan of white chocolate, but this was goood! All this sampling was getting me hungry as i hadn't had lunch yet and it was 3pm, so off we head for food!
We decided on Himalayan, cause i hardly eat Himalayan food so thought i would be different. I ended up choosing their beef combination dish.
Beef Dish with rice, noodles, beans and chick pea dahl - $9
This was exactly what i felt like and it was very nice and filling. Not the best meal i have ever had, but it was certainly tasty. At the end i did encounter some cloves or star anise which wasn't the most pleasant surprise, but it is market food. Megan decided on the Chicken Kebab.
Chicken Kebab with Noodles and Salad - $9
Megan said this was very good, but that it was quite hard to eat the wrap that was underneath. She was meant to get the chick pea dahl on hers, but as it was late in the afternoon i actually got the last of it on mine.....sorry Megan. I did give her some of mine to try though! Both meals had mint yoghurt and homemade chutney on them which were great, I love my condiments! Overall the food was good and a change from the norm. I really wanted to try those ice cream sandwiches that i saw on chocolatesuze's site but i was too full :( Will have to try them next time and get me some of that mayo as well....
