Victor Churchill, Woollahra

Victor Churchill

I've heard of Victor Churchill for a while now but haven't had the chance to go there until a few weeks ago.
My friend wanted to get their roast chicken for dinner, apparently it's the best roast chicken she has had so far.
I tagged along to see what the fuss is all about. 

This is not your ordinary local butcher, as you stepped it you are greeted with lots of security cameras on the side, glass room where the butchers are trimming the meat, glass cabinets of products that they sell - amazing !!
Wasn't sure if photos are allowed inside, so just to be safe, I didn't :)

The raw meat products on display are of premium quality, things like Wagyu beef with marble score 9+, black truffles, perfectly trimmed lamb cutlets, etc. 
I was expecting the prices to be much more expensive, but I think they are actually on par with my local butchers. Especially when the quality here is much higher.
Beside the raw products, they have a rotisserie with hot food on the back, some chilled take home meals and to my surprise....DESSERTS !!

Shopping Bags

They do not skim on packaging here, your purchases are wrapped in fancy packaging then placed in a carry bag that looked like something out of a clothing store.

Fancy Packaging

Creme Caramel

It's funny how I stepped into a butcher but came out with desserts LOL
The sweet stuffs have won me over :P
The creme caramel was soo good, not to sweet with soft pudding like texture, milky and the caramel was simply amazing. Sweet with a slightly burnt taste.

Carrot, Cumin & Coriander Soup

Also bought their soup for lunch the next day. The soup was very good as well, velvety goodness of carrot and lightly spiced with cumin.

Creme Brulee

The creme brulee that made us return the following weeks - it was very very addictive.
I had to say that this is the best brulee ever ! It was creamy with just the right texture, firm but still soft at the same time. The vanilla beans used give a subtle aroma of vanilla....I could eat this every day (I wish !)


As weird as it may sound, it is worth a visit to Victor Churchill just for the desserts :D
