Look at that glorious volcano of melting gruyere souffle! Dive into that with a fork and watch the cheese ooze out. Just divine. Felix Bar and Bistro tucked away on bustling little Ash Street in Angel Place, behind The Ivy is definitely a one hatted experience. Everything about the place screams one hat. The service, the maitre'd , the opulent lamps on each table, the buzzing atmosphere and of course the decadent food.
My entree was a grilled corn, smoked capsicum, zucchini, tomato, pesto and goats curd gnocchi which melted in my mouth. Followed by the creamy twice baked Gruyere soufflé with onion puree, rocket and walnuts with its perfectly burnt cheese edges and eggy puff. My fork bounced back as I cut into its soft mountain.
I had to try dessert although I am not a dessert person. It had to be their profiteroles, vanilla ice cream, salted caramel, pistachios and hot chocolate sauce. WOW. Washed down with a bottle of pinot noir this was a perfectly French affair from beginning to delicious end and all at a very reasonable price. Be surprised at the extravagance of your evening at such a decent cost.
Sweet music playing in the background as the patrons pour in and the turn over is high. A must try night out in beautiful Sydney ... French style.
