Seafood Platter for Two ($40)
Complimentary miniature hamburger
It looked like a miniature hamburger and was very tasty.
For dinner we chose to share a sampler plate of seafood including smoked salmon, grilled salmon, char grilled baby octopus, fresh oysters(2), scallops(2), fresh prawns (4) and a green salad with Parmesan shavings – $40
The scallops melted in the mouth. It had been a while since I had eaten scallops with such flavour. We enjoyed everything on the sampler plate and wished there were more oysters, scallops and prawns.
As well as the plate of seafood I ordered a half lobster for my Mother, knowing how much she loves lobster. We had asked for a Bernaise sauce but the chef was not able to create one, opting for a mornay sauce instead.
Half Lobster Mornay $35
The mornay sauce was very tasty and well seasoned. The lobster tail section was tender and very tasty, unfortunately the upper part was rather rubbery and tasted as if it had been frozen. We were told that the lobster was caught fresh that day and that we were mistaken but my Mother was not convinced. Our family used to own a seafood store and my Mother has had a long history of cooking lobster and is able to cook them to perfection. Thankfully we were not left hungry, the seafood plate more than sated our appetites. It was my first visit to Addisons Seafood Restaurant but definitely not my last.
