Angel Sussurri Review

by Emilia Krumm

It is hard to forget a great eating experience in a restaurant with such an unusual name. The name is derived from the Italian – ‘Whispers of Angels’.

After being sad and lonely for some time, the Manor house in Yarramalong was bought by Deborah and Terry. Their dream of transforming it into a fantastic restaurant and guest house was realised, with their daughters Elizabeth and Aurora, and Aurora’s husband Matthew. It was the whispers of angels that convinced them to invest passionately in the Manor and now it is newly transformed. At last, it feels loved again. Thank you Angels!

Our great waitress Amy made Klara the most delicious Espresso Martini, I had a fabulous French Kiss made with vodka, Cointreau with cranberry and Emma had an Obelisk Wines Pilotage Plan Cabernet Merlot 2017, that we all agreed was velvety.

Chef Glen Crispin had prepared a variety of entrées from the new menu for us. Deep fried camembert with red currant jelly was delicious (lovely and gooey in the middle.) House made falafel with rocket salad and harissa, and the definite favourite, Black sesame scallops on pimento puree with wasabi kewpie mayonnaise. Superb!

We all had the grain fed sirloin steaks for main course. It was served on a bed of garlic mash with a brandy pepper sauce and broccolini. The steak was so tender that we did not need a steak knife to cut into it.

Dessert was another highlight. It was Ariels dessert for Angels, a musk Panna Cotta with chocolate ‘soil’ and a strawberry freeze dried fairy floss. It was unusual, and beautifully presented.

We hope the Angels will whisper in your ear, and entice you to this wonderful restaurant in the Yarramalong Valley.
