Celebratory dinner at ARIA

While on vacation I found out I passed a huge test! Coincidentally we were already planning to go to ARIA before I knew there was a reason to celebrate.

Anyway Here is the amuse bouche: shredded beetroot with some kind of cheese

First course: king salmon confit with salmon caviar, apple & dill—the best course in my opinion

Overall: australian restaurants are apparently not included in the michelin star system so the local substitute is hats. ARIA has two chef hats and I can certainly see why.
