As part of boy's birth-month celebrations, we dined at I'm Angus with a red balloon voucher which was given to him by his mom. The voucher entitled us to a tasting platter of entrees, a choice of three mains (with sides), a dessert platter to share and a drink each.
My kangaroo was perfectly cooked, and was accompanied by capsicum and cherry tomatoes. Definite winner. The soft-shell crab, while suitably soft, lacked a little crunch from crispy batter, but the flavour was good.
Boy, practically bouncing at the idea of steak, claimed the choice of rump and lobster from the red balloon main course options. I was then left with the dilemma of if I too go with steak (mmmm, steak), or test out the salmon for research purposes. For you, my friends, I chose the salmon.
The steak, as you'd hope at a steakhouse, was cooked to the ordered medium, Hurrah! Also, as we probably should have been expecting, the seafood wasn't as good as the steak. The lobster and prawns that were part of each main were both missing the happy place of perfectly cooked 'just done' seafood, instead being very slightly overdone.
Each main was served on a bed of amazing mashed potato, and the sauces and dressings that came with each dish were spot on. Servings were large, and we didn't manage to make much of a dent in the included side dishes of beans or salad.
As we were trying not to lapse into a food coma after mains, the table next to us were served their dessert of warm Belgium chocolate treat. We suddenly sprang back to life and hoped, feverishly, that our 'platter' included what they were having. Thankfully, it did, and the desserts were the absolute high point of the meal. That chocolate dish was oozy and stunning, and the vanilla bean panna cotta (not on the regular menu) was absolutely delicious.
