As a locally owned and operated independent hotel group, we strive to support and encourage local independent businesses like ourselves wherever possible. With this season’s menu we acknowledge that the nights are getting a little longer and the kitchen team has identified some new and exciting products and techniques to share.
We have sourced the most succulent Mooloolaba prawns delivered direct to the Hotel from the trawler. Their beautiful sweet flavour is evident when added to Coral Coast barramundi, wrapped in paper and cooked in its own juices 'en papillote'.
Our grain fed beef cheeks are sourced from the Darling Downs, braised gently until tender enough to eat with a spoon. Our salads are made using the finest local product with herbs, micro leaves and shoots from The Green Shed in Palmwoods, fetta from Kenilworth and our Tasmanian Atlantic salmon is smoked in house. Local company, Suncoast Fresh supply us daily with the finest fruit and vegetables collected from a network of farms in South-east Queensland.
Great care and attention has been placed on sourcing the highest quality of beef available for your enjoyment. We have selected trusted high end Australian brands with a focus on their flavour, tenderness and texture with a mixture of grass and grain fed product to suit all preferences.
Our premium selection showcases Queensland's favourite steak, the Rib, from two world class beef producers. Exclusive in this region to the Sunshine Coast Hotel group, the Thousand Guineas rib fillet is a 180 day grain fed Australian shorthorn beef which is renowned for its open texture and buttery flavour.
The Cape Grim rib eye on the bone is a traditional British breed sourced from northern Tasmania. This tender cut is cooked on the bone with a consistent marble of fat and has a rich full flavour reflecting the 100% grass diet.
Our wine list continues to evolve and this season, we have introduced a delicious tempranillo called Calo from Rioja, Spain. Calo is the gypsy language of northern Spain and this wine is very expressive with full bodied blackcurrant and cherry cola flavours balanced by a mild, smooth finish. It’s yummy and pairs really well with mild spice dishes and also our pizza.
We have also added a new moscato to this season’s wine list. This wine is produced by Holm Oak Vineyards, a five star rated winery in Northern Tasmania which was established in 1983. Holm Oak is one of the few smaller family owned wineries who grow, make and bottle their own wines on site. The TBR Duffy Moscato is a refreshing wine with more complexity than you would expect from this varietal. The wine also has added spice flavours as a result of the extra skin contact.
We are very pleased to be the first venue in Queensland to feature the release of the Leeuwin Estate Prelude Cabernet Sauvignon from Margaret River. Leeuwin Estate is the benchmark of Margaret River chardonnay and cabernet and we now have both of the Prelude Vineyards varietals on our list.
This latest red is a cracking example of Margaret River cabernet and this premier 2013 vintage has all the Leeuwin trademarks of elegance and class. Enjoy a bottle with one of our premium selection steaks – you won’t be disappointed!
