It was a miserable night in Randwick with the temperature dropping and the rain lashing outside. This weather was making us feel like something warm and comforting for dinner so we headed out to Corner 75 Hungarian Restaurant located on Frenchmans Road in Randwick.
Family run for over 20 years, the decor has a Hungarian flavour with maps and artifacts of Hungary on the wall, with traditional linen for tablecloths - it's very quaint.
The menu is simple and packed full of eastern european delights such as snitzels and goulash. The prices are very reasonable with us both having three courses and it only came to around $80. It's BYO as well which always helps keep the price down.
The meals come pretty quickly but the staff are fine if you ask them to wait a bit between courses. Kevin had chicken noodle soup, following by the Gypsy roast, breaded pieces of roast pork with a piece of crackling on top, served with garlic potatoes, red cabbage, in a rich sauce, and then creme caramel for dessert.
I had a savoury crepe filled with spinach for starters, followed by mushroom goulash with what look like Spatzle (a bit like pasta). My dessert is one of the best I've ever had - Gundel pancake - hot crepes stuffed with walnut paste, with lashings of chocolate sauce and ice cream. You will drool when you see the photo!
Suitably stuffed we made our way home in the rain thinking maybe winter won't be too bad after all as we'll get to eat at Corner 75 again soon.
