Xanthi Westfield Sydney - A Culinary Adventure

I've been finally going through a few photos on my phone this evening and it suddenly dawned on me that I've taken so few photos of our recent foodgasms at Xanthi of Westfield Sydney!  

The largesse of this dominant chain of malls can be pretty off putting as far as food experiences go, however the latest addition to the group in the centre of Sydney City has proven to be worthy of attracting some of the city's finest culinary artists willing to associate their stable of restaurants with this enteprise. That can only mean great things for diners!

I had been meaning to go to David Tsirekas' "Perama" restaurant of Petersham for at least a couple of years and when I learned earlier this year that he was closing up shop after many years of trading in the inner west to take a spot in the new shopping district I was filled with trepidation! How could I miss out (love Greek food) and will a new venue detract from the delicious authenticity that Perama was so loved for? 

Well I needn't have worried at all - in its short life, my husband and I have already managed three visits, each as delicious as the first!  We're never short of excuses to suggest taking guests either. To prove how the excitingly tantalising the menu is - we're always far too busy eating to take too many "food porn" pics - so big apologies for that but well I do this for fun!

I can say categorically that the wonderful tasting plates of Apo tin plastira include a must-try pork baklava and the Kyria (mains) feature the delicious lamb skaras that will fulfil all desires for Greek-style lamb.  You will find among the few photos the exquisite caramel baklava ice cream which is in a non-word "ZOMG".  

Xanthi does a great job of making you feel the banquet option is an experience rather than a compromise so if you are venturing unchartered territory give it a go and don't forget to come back here and tell me what you thought! Or tell me I'm crackers!
