Booking a table at the CIT Reid campus restaurant for lunch on Tuesday or Friday, or dinner on Thursday, is an excellent way to share a fine dining restaurant experience with friends, at mid-range restaurant prices.
At the same time, you will be supporting a great concept, creating a real-life environment for students to practice and hone their hospitality skills.
The seasonal menu, offering two courses for $20 or three courses for $25, changes every few months and is linked to on the CIT website. Each course offers three choices including a vegetarian option and plenty of gluten free options.
Salmon carpaccio (GF) – Sliced Salmon with ginger, coriander, chilli, mint and apple vinegar dressing (GF) ( a favourite)
Seven spice smoked marinated duck – Seven spice smoked marinated duck breast with green apple salad in a plum sauce (GF)
Eggplant & smoked goat cheese – Baked eggplants with soy miso dressing served with smoked goat cheese (V,GF)
Coq au vin – Braised chicken with dry-cured, smoked back bacon, mushroom, eschallots in red wine and brandy sauce served with mash potato (GF)
Steamed Barramundi – Barramundi with ginger and soy broth with seasonal vegetables and soba noodles (GF) (a favourite)
Mushroom and Capsicum Couscous (V) – Mushrooms, capsicum and chickpea stew with couscous and tomato basil
Self-saucing Chocolate pudding – Baked chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream and pistachio nuts
Gula Melaka – Sago pudding with fresh berries and coconut palm sugar (GF) (recommended by other diners)
Cream Brulee- Lime and ginger cream brulee served with fresh berries (GF) ( a favourite)
Bookings of more than ten people are requested to pre-order to ensure everyone’s choice is available.
Three courses can be too much to be comfortable, but if you’d still like to try all the courses, why not share and entree and a dessert with a friend and both get main courses (i.e. two courses each at $20, but an experience of all three courses).
Drinks (including wine by the glass at $5) are available from the fully licensed bar.
The soft furnishings and patiently paced service are ideal for a leisurely, rich conversation, accompanied by beautifully presented and prepared food.
