Sepia

Date of Visit: August 11, 2012

Another memorable meal in 2012 was at Sepia. It is ranked #3 in the Gourmet Traveller Guide and also received 3 Hats from SMH Good Food Guide.

If not for the take-home degustation menu of the day (with postcards and the restaurant’s calling card as momento), I would be left puzzling at the pictures without a clue to what deliciousness I had. I must also say that dining at Sepia is the closest to molecular gastronomy experience in Australia! The following are my iPhone gastronomic journal (and I must say iPhone takes some good pictures!)

ONE
