Review: Eighteen 70 (Orange NSW)

The night that Alvaro came to visit, I spent an unusually long amount of time tossing back and forth between my plans A and B while Alvaro rolled his eyes at me until both of them failed. The dining room in plan A was packed and as we sat outside for a few minutes I realised food would get cold the second it arrived at the table. Plan B was fully booked on the night. Luckily, I had a plan C. Eighteen 70 had been in my initial list until I read some mixed reviews and I decided to leave it out. This bistro is located in a quiet corner close to where I was staying.

But first, wine. It was a boozy night for me (hey, I hadn’t seen my husband in 3 weeks!), with this glass of great local cabernet merlot being my third and final glass.

We skipped the starters and ordered two mains to share. My non-negotiable was the pork knuckle with kumera, buttered sprouts & bier sauce. We ordered it gluten-free, so I think they substituted wine jus for the sauce. As expected, it was a generous serving, the skin was crispy, the sprouts were cooked just right and the flavour didn’t dissapoint.

Our second main was a sirloin steak with hand cut chips, wilted spinach, asparagus, Café de Paris butter & shiraz jus. Once again, generous serving and great taste. Good enough to overlook the fact that the steak was not medium-rare. Details.
