Sheraton Perth Hotel
207 Adelaide Terrace, Perth, Western Australia
When I arrived in Perth, I was told that the connecting flight to Sydney will be delayed till midnight. So, Qantas gave complimentary accommodation, dinner and a 3 minute international phone call to all affected passengers. The hotel room was very nice!
Complimentary dinner was buffet at Monterey’s, the restaurant in the hotel. It cost AUD$65 (SGD$84.50) per person (I saw the price when I signed the receipt). I’m glad Qantas is paying the bill.
All the antipasto dishes were very good! I like Tasmanian smoked salmon most of all.
The tomatoes were so fresh that they looked like they’ve just been picked. Each little red gem just burst with sweetness in the mouth.
I kept going back for the raw sardines topped with tomato salsa because they were so fresh and addictive.
The colour of the braised cabbage may turn you off but there’s nothing artificial about the taste. I like the crisp texture and slightly sweet flavor.
There’s also a seafood pot and freshly prepared penne with Mediterranean vegetables.
The highlight of the baked barramundi with beetroot was not the fish itself but the accompanying shredded beetroot! The long strands of beetroot were very tasty.
The crayfish were so fresh that I polished off 4 without hesitation.
There’s also a huge pile of local prawns, crab legs, oysters and mussels.
The food was so good that I heaped piles of it on my plate.
The desserts section was excellent too. There’s vanilla panna cotta with raspberry sauce.
The chocolate mud cake was a tad too dry. I also took the warm chocolate cake topped with strawberry sorbet which was very dark and rich.
The caramelized puddings were very smooth and not too sweet.
There were also a variety of small tarts, tortes and cakes.
This was a most satisfactory dinner. Seriously, eating a buffet was the last thing I expected when I left Singapore this morning. If I know about this beforehand, I would have come here on an empty stomach!
