As Sassy girls we certainly don’t shy away from a chilled glass of wine or two, but when someone says LKF, immediate thoughts turn to jello shots, bustling bars and street parties. In order to quash these preconceptions, I Love LKF invites us to sample A Taste of LKF on Saturday May 12th and celebrate the array of wonderfully intimate, top quality eateries and sophisticated wine bars dotted above the wild party streets!
Casa Lisboa’s fruity Portuguese red and deliciously rich Carne de Porco dish is just one example of what this extravaganza has in store for you. Unlike the numerous wine walks and beer festivals offered throughout the city, A Taste of LKF is about finding the perfect food and wine pairing, with ten of the area’s finest restaurants (including Indochine, The Flying Winemaker, LUX and Wooloomooloo) joining forces to tantalise your taste buds.
It’s that million-dollar question though – which food goes with which wine? The art of food and wine pairing is not to be sniffed at, which is why the restaurant’s connoisseurs at A Taste of LKF have combined wine regions and culinary traditions to enhance our dining experience. A match made in heaven!
For an island that boasts such an array of international fare, it is no surprise that Italian, Vietnamese, French, Australian and Portuguese are just some of the gastronomic delights on offer. We were lucky enough to be let in on a few secrets on what is in store for May 12th.
It was only right that our first port of call was the newly renovated Di Vino, LKF’s longest standing member. The proudly Italian chefs paired their beautifully rich traditional cuisine with crisp whites and spicy reds to compliment our experience. A lightly breaded ball stuffed with warmed mozzarella and anchovies is guaranteed to send you to foodie heaven and back!
Next stop was Casa Lisboa, a European classic, where their resident wino talked us through the history of Portuguese blends before we made our way to Robata Zawazawa. This Japanese gem is crammed with authentic style and charm, a wonderful contrast to the bustling streets below. Their signature mochi dessert, freshly prepared before your eyes, and the most incredible array of colourful and flavoursome cocktails, are just two of the dishes waiting to seduce your senses.
So if you’re a curious foodie or an inquisitive wino, treat your taste buds, explore the area and be wined and dined to your heart’s content!
