UTS rowing club, Haberfield, Sydney Inner west

If you're into running, you probably have done or at least heard of the bay run. The bay run is a loop of running track that stretches over 7km around a couple of suburbs but specifically got its name as it loops past the Iron Cove 'Bay'. 

Along this running path is the UTS rowing club. I've run past many times, but never actually been inside this place, but having heard that they just recently under went a huge refurbishment, we decided to try it out for dinner.

The location is pretty nice as you would expect of most water front restaurants with the refurbishment providing a nice open decking area to enjoy your meals, overlooking the bay. Order at the counter, grab a number and wait for your food to arrive.

The food is a tad on the expensive side, but some of this is probably for the atmosphere and views.

Flame grilled New York strip -$34 - With compound butter, mushroom cream, roasted corn and greens salad and thick cut chips. Steak was cooked medium with nice sear marks. Chips were crispy and went well with the steak. Salad was a nice refreshing break from the heaviness of the other components but could have been a bit more acidic with the dressing. Also - need more sauce!




Sizzling Australian King Prawns - $26 - Served on a hot plate with garlic, tomato, herbs and sliced sourdough. Almost every table was ordering this and the aroma and theatrics of the dish as it arrived at each table lured us in also. Four or five big fat juicy prawns, kissed by the grill to get the nice char grilled flavour contrasted with the tanginess of the tomato salsa. Perfect combo, but more of an entree than a main.
