This is not the first time I’ve been to Belair Hotel. In fact I’ve been a few times and unfortunately I must say the restaurant isn’t great. It’s rather expensive for what it is and the dishes so far haven’t given me a sense of satisfaction. From watery curries to extremely fishy risotto, I haven’t exactly had the desire to return.
One night we chose this place out of mere convenience to meet up with someone before we catch a movie at Mitcham so being on a time constraint, we decided to sit at the front bar and ordered from the bar menu. I must admit the front bar menu looks better, though still pricy for a bar/pub being that you don’t actually get to sit in the nice restaurant. Having said that we found a gem on the menu. Belair Dog – jumbo chorizo hot dog with bacon, onion, cheese, tomato sauce and mustard served with house made slaw and fries for $12.
It was delicious and satisfying. I loved the coleslaw too! I think next time we’ll be eating at the front bar instead.
