Patagonian Toothfish is a South American Restaurant located in the heart of Redffern. It is about a 10 minute stroll from the station, or you could just drive straight there and park on one of the side streets. It wasn’t particularly busy when we went, but we had an early dinner.
The restaurant is quite small inside, but has a nice cozy feel about it.
Albondigas con Tuco
Traditional Spanish meatballs in a spicy tomato salsa (GF)
The meatballs were a little on the dry side but the flavour was nice. Not too overpowering. The salsa was slightly spicy, and the sauce light in texture.
Croquettas de jamon
Creamy mixture of potatoes, jamon, Spanish herbs
Rolled in bread crumbs and lightly fried served with aioli
Not too oily. Dip generously into the Aioli as it is a little dry without.
Chupin de Marisco
Blue swimmer crab claw, prawns, mussels, octopus, scallops and squid
Served in a tomato & saffron broth with rustic bread(GF)
Perfect dish for a cold day. The mussels, prawns, scallops and Squid were all nicely cooked. Not overly chewy/mushy.. But not sure where the blue swimmer crab was? The broth was light, so if you aren’t a fan of heavy, creamy type dishes then this one’s for you.
Spinach and ricotta Ravioli
Ravioli simmered in a rich napolitana sauce with touch of cream (V)
A nice pasta dish. However even as a fan of spicy foods, I think it needs to be in the menu description for diners with low spice tolerance. Otherwise, nice lovely flavours, and the ravioli cooked just right.
Aroz con Leche
Spanish Rice Pudding
Nice, creamy and quite sweet. Comes out nice and warm.
Sweet revenge Ricotta cheese served with whipped cream and
Ricotta sounds really strange in the context of a dessert , but it’s very similar to any other cheesecake. It has a caramel flavour, and sticks to the roof of your mouth with each mouthful.
