Pork belly seems to be on the menu of every second Sydney restaurant these days, as it was at Kingston & Co., a newish eatery at Chatswood Westfield. My boyfriend and I both have a soft spot for pork belly so of course we ordered it. One bite of the pork belly and I was in food heaven. The skin was super thin and crispy, and actually reminded me of the skin of a roast suckling pig found at a Chinese restaurant. The meat was wonderfully tender and melted in your mouth. Conversation ceased as we just savoured each bite. However, it did get a bit heavy towards the end so I would recommend sharing this dish. The housemade apple sauce was delicious and the coleslaw rounded out the dish well.
Wagyu 'n' cheese sliders - the beef patty was juicy and tender and I loved the mustard sauce which cut through the fattiness. Am definitely going to come back and try their other burgers on the menu. For an entree, the portion size was very generous.
Our other dish was the Haloumi cheese, Turkish bread and figs. It was a great combination of flavours - the intense sweetness from the figs, the saltiess of the cheese and turkish bread to soak it all up.
For drinks, we tried the Frozen Bounty - just as the name suggests, it tasted like the Bounty chocolate bar (a combo of coconut flakes, chocolate, ice cream).
I enjoyed sitting in their quasi outdoor section, observing the hustle and bustle of Chatswood. The dessert looked very appetising but we simply could not eat anymore, so will have to come back next time!
Based on reader feedback, I am trying out my new rating system - assessing each individual dish for its tastiness and lightness. Let me know what you think!
