Top dining experience at local club

A group of some of Sydney’s food bloggers were treated to an exclusive first taste of Cabra-Vale Diggers’ new restaurant last week.

Champion journalist sat among them for the evening to see what impression the club’s $18 million refurbishment could make.

The new restaurant called Brasserie on the Park features a mixed menu to suit many tastes.

Its kitchen is surrounded by glass windows allowing people to see the chefs as they prepare the meals.

Head chef Kiran Arora prepared an extensive sample of what the menu had to offer.

A definite crowd favourite was the seafood platter and the beer-battered flathead soft tacos.

Part two of the club’s refurbishment will be a game-changer for the region.

Cabra-Vale Diggers’ chief executive Boris Belevski said plans were in motion to create an Asian eat street in the club.

He said it would be like walking down the Meekong River – featuring the tastes of Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam and China.

“While we’ve got a very multicultural membership – we have over 30,000 members – 24,000 of those members are of mixed Asian background, and of those 70 percent are Vietnamese,” he said.

“The rest are Anglo Saxons, and we embrace that particular market with Brasserie on the Park.

“Part two of this $18-million refurbishment on the new as-yet unnamed Asian eat street has already started and we’re excited for what’s to come.”
