Loluk Bistro, Surry Hills: Homage to Southern French cuisine

View my food journey on Zomato!

Southern France comes alive in the intimate setting of the Bourke Street homestead, Loluk.  A menu that continues to captivate, only a handful of places in the immediate city come to mind when it comes to French cuisine representation and Loluk stands prominently with consistency, authenticity and aesthetics.  Aromatic flavours swirl through the palette with rich sauce, infused oils, slow cooked proteins featuring Salmon, Beef Cheek, Backstrap, Scallop, Octopus and more!   It’s influenced by Southern French flavour and technique with creative liberties for the diverse Sydney palette.

(LAMB BACKSTRAP) SELLE D’AGNEAU EN CROUTE DE CHATIGNE, VELOUTE DE PANAIS, PATATE CONFITE:     The crust is chestnut which is countered by a parsnip white sauce and confit potato.  The richness and obvious precision to the dish make this the must-try this winter.

(SNAILS) ESCARGOTS EN PERSILLADE: An essential 19th Century staple in French cuisine, the French reportedly consume 40,000 metric tons of snails each year.  The snails absorb and are soaked through with a garlic and parsley sauce.  National Escargot Day is on 24th May, so what better time to try, if you haven’t already.

  1. I live in the south of France and I wouldn’t call this classical southern French food with the obvious exception of the daube which is typically served with ravioli. It’s very rare to find belly of pork on a menu and the French don’t eat parsnips (panais) they feed them to said pigs. That said, the dishes do look delicious.
