SYDNEY - Biota Dining - A 2 Chef Hats Award Restaurant - Approximately 1.5-2 hours drive away from Sydney in the rural town of Bowral, lies a hidden gem where food is always intricately prepared for selective guests. Especially if you enjoy taking long drives away from the city, this restaurant is worth a visit! Biota Dining has been awarded numerous awards such as the Regional Restaurant of 2014 and most importantly 2 Chef Hats Award for its fine cuisine. The restaurant prides itself for only using the freshest ingredients all sourced locally and regionally.The word "Biota" is a noun and has the meaning "Animals and Plant Life of a particular region".

Address: 18 Kangaloon Road, NSW 2576

Biota Dining experiences focuses on supporting local farmers and growers. They even have their own onsite automated glasshouse which grows over 40 varieties of seed imported from France, Netherlands and local suppliers to supply constant seasonal of harvest of cresses, shoots, and seedlings used for gastronomic practice daily. The menu consists of gastronomic dishes featuring the freshest seasonal produce that titillate your senses and taste buds to leave a memorable dining experience. This restaurant provides Molecular Dining at its finest in a fascinating open kitchen. Highly inspirational and impressive!

Guests were invited to choose from an option of either Three, Five or Nine courses for a unique gastronomic journey. I chose FIVE as I thought it was a decent choice. Service was impeccable and the attentive staff with warm smiles will keep your glasses filled at all times and serve food promptly. All food dishes were interestingly presented and I enjoyed a fruit mocktail :) Homemade whole wheat sourdough bread was served warm in a Biota Cloth Bag and the light smoked cultured butter was served on a black rock with a knife cut through it. Very quirky and interesting!

The FIVE course dinner - Reasonably priced at AUD98 & AUD154 with matching wines, was pretty filling. I enjoyed the first dish - Scampi with Smoked Roe, Charcoal, Purslane as I am a seafood lover. The charcoal was crunchy and it went really well with the Scampi. The second dish was Cooked curds with egg yolk, rye and chickpea which tasted marvellous! The third dish was Lamb breast with dried lactose, fresh and cooked oats which was cooked in perfection. The lamb simply melts in my mouth. The fourth dish was Duck with pine, cauliflower, pear and white raisins was an interesting combination  where the duck tasted sweet and yummy. Lastly, the dessert was heavenly and my utmost favorite. It was Stonefruit Sorbet with Rose meringue, peach gel and mums roses. Overall, I enjoyed my dinner and I highly recommend this restaurant to those who appreciate interesting degustation menu where every dish looks intriguing and divine. It's an art to savor every dish very S-L-O-W-L-Y!

The interior of Biota Dining restaurant was very clean, modern and contemporary. There was also a huge screen TV which shows how the culinary chefs put together each dish in an intricate manner. The open kitchen concept shows how Chef James Viles and his amazing team put together each dish using tweezers with much concentration like a surgeon to his operating patient. After each dish is ready, a soft clap will be a signal to wait staff to serve the dish fresh to guests at the dining table.

After a memorable dining experience, it was time to head home to feed my baby Snowy bunny! I think Snowy is growing up pretty fast as his appetite has increased significantly. I am thankful that Snowy is an intelligent bunny who goes to the bathroom to do his business despite having the freedom to roam about freely in the entire house. Snowy love cuddles and is very friendly. I love Snowy very much :)

I must say the great thing about living in Sydney, Australia is that there are so many new places to explore outside Sydney city and I enjoy taking long drives out to explore new restaurants, beaches and cafes. Talk about living life to the fullest! Thank God for blessing me with a beautiful life :)
