New Menu at Pony Dining
Alicia Moo | On 05, Dec 2014
The location perfect, the space beautiful and the food comforting, Pony Dining on Eagle Street Pier has a new menu.
Pony is the restaurant you go to if you are looking for a relaxed yet sophisticated riverfront affair. The menu options are great for sharing, ranging from their â€˜big platesâ€™ of pork belly, roast duck and sous vide chicken breast. Thereâ€™s the open planned kitchen where diners can admire spirited chefs serve up honest, uncomplicated food.
Interestingly, Ponyâ€™s new menu is rather fusion in flavour ranging from classic jamon and manchego croquettes to Asian inspired dishes of shiitake mushroom gyoza and a delicate seared tuna with smoked tofu, dashi jelly and edamame. The gyoza was not the best I had but the presentation was adorable. If you like a bit of fusion in your life the new menu should catch your eye.
A highlight of the night had to be the double baked soufflÃ© with romesco, fire roasted hazelnuts and figs. The texture of the soufflÃ© was so light and the flavours were a perfect marriage.
The new dessert menu is a thing of beauty. A hark back to the 1970s with a gorgeous bombe Alaska. Or if meringue and ice-cream donâ€™t take your fancy, thereâ€™s the Mille feuilles tatin or coconut and raspberry macarons. The desserts kept coming with raspberry filled mini donuts and a cherry clafoutis packed with that real cherry flavour some desserts can sometimes miss.
With wood fired dishes and a cosy atmosphere, Pony is well worth a try. Expect comforting dishes and a great meeting place spent with good company.
