Source Dining, Albury

I have been in Albury-Wodonga the last few days teaching, golfing and eating.  Yes eating! For the 20 years or so I have been visiting A-W I have never found it difficult to discover a good restaurant and, with Rutherglen just down the road,  there are plenty of good wines to stir the appetite in the early afternoon.  The last few years I have made a point when visiting of eating at  Source Dining  a remarkably good restaurant with an unpretentious facade in downtown Albury.  This restaurant is something special for NSW-Victoria not just Albury! The wine list is carefully selected and reasonably priced with a very good range of fortifieds. While the modern Australian main courses are the sensible reason for going there, I am always eager to get to the deserts.  A couple of nights ago, following fresh Sydney rock oysters and roast duck with jellied tangy orange I couldn’t believe this crew could disappoint me with dessert so I – bravely – ordered olive oil icecream with white asparagus.   Despite my fears it is hard to exaggerate how really good it was. Creamy and divine.

    “This restaurant is something special for Victoria not just Albury!” – But Albury is in NSW.

    Err…why is it that I always associate good food with Victoria not NSW. I stand corrected.

  • I doubt if I could stomach Olive Oil icecream with asparagus even after socking back a couple of bottles of red and a 5 course meal on expenses.

    FXH, I ordered this outrageous concoction on the basis that I wanted to know how the hell they would pull it off. Its not just passable – but an excellent dessert and (so I am told) a fairly standard one in Italy and elsewhere.
