Lunch @ 98 Chairs, Goulburn

Goulburn's not a town we usually associate with fine dining, so when a foodie friend recommended this restaurant a few months ago we sat up and took notice. We took my partner's parents to 98 Chairs for a belated father's day lunch today and it was a delightful meal. The place looks pretty modest from the outside but is elegant and spacious on the inside. The restaurant opened in November 2013 and the menu changes every twelve weeks to take advantage of local and seasonal produce. Here's what we had ...

For the main course, two people had:

Beer battered flathead and chips, with garden salad and tartare sauce

one person had:

Beef burger, with fresh beetroot, double cheese, bacon,
tomato relish, caramelised onion, lettuce and chips

and one person had:

Sweet potato wrap, with roast sweet potato, swiss
cheese, avocado, salsa verde, greens and chips

We were all pretty full by this stage but splashed out and had dessert anyway! It sounded too good to miss, and was both artistic and delicious.

One person had:

White chocolate and cardamom ganache, beetroot, orange
and chocolate mousse, almond meringue, chocolate soil and lemon gel

Two people had:

Popcorn sundae, with buttered popcorn, ice cream,
peanut brittle, caramel sauce and a waffle cone

and one person had:

Apricot tart with ice cream

Oh, and we enjoyed a fabulous bottle of wine with the meal. Andrew chose it because it was local (made five minutes from Goulburn) and a shiraz, and we really liked it.

This was a very enjoyable meal. We'll have to go back for Sunday brunch sometime.

98 Chairs is at 98 Auburn Street, Goulburn (about 100 km north of Canberra and 200 km south of Sydney). Cheers!
