2013 B'day Episode 4 – Round House – Sunday Roast [CLOSED]



Sunday Roast originated from the British and Irish, with the main purpose to gather family members or friends on Sunday and to share a good meal. Main ingredients that you can normally find on a traditional Sunday Roast are Roasted Meat, Potatoes (Roasted or mashed), Yorkshire pudding, vegetables and gravy.

During my time in the Kangaroo land, my Australian family always have a beautiful Sunday Roast regularly to celebrate the family member birthdays. It is one of the special occasions that I really look forward to. The meal are similar to the Brits, but with more Aussie swagger. Such as the use of roast leg lamb and pavlova for desserts. Yum!!



Round House

The Sunday Roast Area

So when I heard that Round House have a Sunday Roast and I immediately check out the menu online, I just can't resist to give this place a try. Prime Angus Roast Rib Eye and Bread & Butter pudding, I'm sold. Of course, as a restaurant, you expect a different standard of Sunday Roast. Such as Roasted potato with duck fat, beautifully done Cauliflower Au Gratin and of course not forgetting the delicious gravy on top of your Yorkshire pudding and the meat. Yum Yum!!

Pricing and Menu
From the top left clockwise: Glazed Carrots and Sauted Mushrooms; Roast Herb Vegetables and Roast Potatoes;
Sliced ham; Cauliflower Au Gratin and Mashed Potatoes

Basically the Sunday Roast @ Round House is more of a buffet style. I skipped the salads and go straight to the main meal. The Rib Eye are roasted to medium rare with the centre part of the rack is pink. If you prefer your meat to be more done, ask for the meat near the side. The Chef sliced the meat to your preference.

The Star Attraction - Roast Angus Rib Eye

The Rib Eye is tender and juicy accompanied with a slightly thicken gravy made from the au jus from the meat. (I am actually drooling when I am writing this blog). The potatoes roasted with duck fat is quite crispy but delicious. A little over crispy to my liking. The mash potatoes are smooth, creamy and flavourful. Yorkshire pudding is crispy and a great vessel to fill the gravy in it.

There are salads and soup available, which we skip. For vegetables such as carrots, peas and mushrooms are nicely done with a touch of butter to bring out the richness in the taste. The Cauliflower au gratin is crunchy and coated beautifully with melted white cheese sauce. Little Devil preferred the one done by Aussie family Dad as it is thicker and richer. But Round House version is just fine by me. We both actually went for solid two rounds of serving, so it is very satisfying.

For desserts, it is nothing better than Bread and Butter pudding. It is nicely baked chunks of bread, with crispy texture on the outside, while moist on the inside. The Cream Anglaise has a nice light texture and sweetness, instead of thick and heavy. Two thumbs up!!

From the top, anti-clock wise: Bread and Butter Pudding;
Cream Anglaise; Assorted Praline's
The seating inside the restaurant is more of Pub style, where they have a huge bar in the centre. You can seat at the bar, or for an indoor proper meal you can be seated on the high tables and high chairs. Regular size table and chairs are available at the outdoor dining options, however these area are not air-conditioned.  The tvs indoor will show any popular British sports.

Service is very courteous, friendly and efficient. As it was raining quite heavily outside, the place is not as very crowded. Price for the Sunday Roast is $49++ with free flow of soft drink. $99++ for free flow of beer and wine.

Overall, the meal here got our seal of approval. The roast meat is beautiful and most of the sides are perfectly executed. It really bring back the nostalgic feeling in us. We will definitely comeback for more. Cheers!!!
