    I have to admit, it does sorta look like an egg!

  2. Camille

    Strangely enough, I looked at your teaser photo again today and wondered how I could have been so foolish, as it is so very obviously a perfectly round scoop of some kind of ice cream over something delicious and roasted. (I guessed pineapple, which isn’t too far off…) But I wouldn’t put it past you to order an egg for dessert if you thought it sounded interesting. 😉

    wow, what a fun meal/celebration!

    So did Jedda get to go to dinner with you to celebrate or did he get the doggy bag – ha ha! Your desserts look amazing – of course I thought it was icecream in your previous post because I just find the idea of eating egg too strange.

    By the way I was momentarily excited at the title of this post hoping it was about the band Pulp – sigh – I live in hope!

    What a great meal! Thanks for sharing!

    That banana tarte tatin is calling my name! Haven’t had bananas for so long because the prizes here in Sydney have been so outrageous!

    I tend not to order seafood in Canberra… I think I’m biased against it, would rather save seafood for coastal towns.

    That being said I had heaps of seafood last night. But I bought it frozen.

    Wow, such beautiful food! Oysters and sumac are two things I still have to try. And I can’t wait for the asparagus season to begin! I especially love the green one. 😀

    12th anniversary means Jedda is 13, right?

    It was a lovely night – lovely meal and the company was up to scratch too!

    And, I think WayChoc was right about our Calves’ liver … not as tender and tasty as the Ottoman’s lamb liver.

    mmmmm – that dessert looks amazing! I LOVE “sharing” desserts (read: stealing unsolicited bites)! : )

    “a meal without salt is like a pigeon without an oesophagus.” hahaha that’s the first time I heard that, sounds like such a random adage.

    Also, can’t believe I knew where the lyrics abt fish came from. Sebastien singing “Under Da Sea” in Little mermaid!

    Happy birthday to your mum, and yay for having great dogs in your life! Banana tarte tatin is a great idea, and next time my banana-growing friends have too many bananas to handle I think I will see if I can make something as good as yours looks and sounds.

    What an awesome name for a restaurant 😀 And also, your MUM blogs? That’s so awesome. Mine doesn’t even know how to turn on a computer 🙁

  14. Erin@TheFoodMentalist

    OMG Jedda is adorable!!!!!

  15. Soy @ honeyandsoy

    Don’t worry Hannah, I didn’t think that was an egg 8). Sounds like you had mixed feeling about the place. I think it’s a pity that most of the oysters in Canberra taste like it could be fresher….

  16. Agnes

    Two things.

    1: You’ve tried absinthe?!?!

    2: Your savoury food reviews definitely aren’t as poetically descriptive as your chocolate reviews. No hints of sawdust dusted with sparkling sunbeams?

  17. Peggy

    Hehe… I can see how it was mistaken for an egg =) Sounds like a lovely dinner though!

  18. Heidi - Apples Under My Bed

    Wow, all this yummy food just for Jedda! Happy Anniversary Jedda! hehe. Seriously, mumma Wayfaring Chocolate, I hope you had a fabulous birthday! With all these glorious eats it must have been a wonderful night. Love the pink salt here too – so pretty!

    how lovely! Would you recommend the restaurant overall?

  20. Vaala ◪

    It would have been better if it had been an egg on the banana pastry thing. Haven’t you heard? It’s like the new dessert of the century. Or something.

    Someone tell me to shut up now.

  21. L-Engineer

    And which chair is this dog sitting on, pray? Now I know what happens when the cat’s away!

    Twas a good outing and goo meal, indeed.

    Happy Birthday to Momma & poodle puppy. 🙂 I’ve not been to Pulp Kitchen, thinking I must. 🙂 Digging the Raspberry dessert, it looks gorgeous. And lovely lady, use that flash when your taking the pictures, I always take one with & one without, its nice to share all the ingredients of the dish, not just set the mood of how great the night was. Plus, coming from someone that works in the industry, it is a huge compliment to see someone taking pictures of the food. 🙂
    PS: I have forgotten about the Pink Salt, that stuff is seriously pretty and for some reasons the restaurants have stopped using it. Hmmm… Im going to bring it back. 🙂

  23. Rach

    Hahaha! I love your “not an egg” thing… hehe! Looks tasty, girl! And happy birthday to your momma and doggy!

  24. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    Happy Birthday to your mum and to Jedda’s anniversary! I would take that whole egg thing as a compliment. It means that you are delightfully eccentric and anything is possible which is actually a good thing! 😀

  25. Julia @ Boredom Abounds

    Oh wow, all that food sounds just amazing. The steamed asparagus sounds very yummy!

  26. hungryandfrozen

    Found myself saying “*you’re* alarmingly flaccid” to the computer/empty room before I could stop myself. Heeeee.

    Yay Jedda, what a beauty! Looks like a delicious meal although – I don’t know if I’ve just been conditioned to eat big or something – the meals do look a bit on the small side. I love the idea of sour cream sorbet, sounds like something I want to try making one day.

  27. Tasha @ Voracious

    Jedda is THE CUTEST! Poodles are such wonderful dogs. Growing up my sister and I each had a little apricot poodle, they were sisters, as well. They were silly and sweet, just wonderful members of the family. You are lucky to have Jedda!

    And what a meal. The pan seared salmon looks especially delicious.

  28. Erica

    awww 🙂 Love celebrating the puppers birthdays! What a unique meal! Makes me feel like I always order the most boring dishes!! Maybe one day I’ll become a more adventurous eater

  29. Christine @ Merf In Progress

    I still think it’s an egg. You’re just embarrassed.

  30. Ellie@fitforthesoul

    omgshhh!! Oyster is like, one of my faves!!! that makes me drool~seriously, the wangier a fish/seafood is, the better for me. 😀

  31. Susan

    Still haven’t been to pulp, which is hardly north side 🙂 There is something about that place, as with a lot of fine dining canberra restaurants, they just don’t look like they have any ambience. I have walked past pulp many times during the day and it looks so boring. They need to get some designers/architects into these restaurants!

  32. Conor @ HoldtheBeef

    Happy birthday Mrs Hannah!

    Did you all go out afterwards and continue the Absinthe theme (you know, the theme that was totally started with the oysters) and find an old Czech bar and have a few digestive tipples and write crazy poetry together?
