Wine and Beer
The wine list has a good selection from Australia’s main wine-producing regions, all reasonably priced – some by the glass. Gina’s selection embraces most grape varieties, all eminently suitable pairings with the menu.
Oyster Bay Pinot Noir 2020 Marlborough, New Zealand, was our poison of choice. For the fancier wine buffs, French sparkling and wines might be the go. Seven beers are listed; domestic and imported.
“The wine list is sensible,” The Foodie announced. “Not too extensive, but a very good range, though adding a Clare Valley Riesling would round it out.”
The food was wonderful. Seriously good, fresh, lively and in generous servings. I can’t ever recall raving about steamed rice, but there I was, waxing lyrical and tossing about words like “cleanly separated”, “light”, “dry”, and “fluffy” like an expert (tosser).
Any lightweight worried about the number of scobles they’ll be slapped with at Attentive can rest easy. There’ll be no gasping, eye-watering, red-faced screams from you. For heat lovers, these dishes were on the mild side, yet chilli was still one of the gang, just not going on and on about it. For more heat, ask. If shy, pack Sriracha.
