Cheese & Wine Room

I've never actually been in the GPO before - it's that big fancy building on the corner of Martin Place and George St, with all the swanky-looking restaurants on the outside. There are also swanky restaurants inside it, one of them being the GPO Cheese and Wine Room. I love cheese, and since going to the Hunter Valley last year I've developed a taste for wine, so I rounded some people up for the first of my birthday get-togethers, and ordered way too much food (but only split one bottle of wine because we are poor).


The truffle cheese board - the hard cheese was so good.


The truffle cheese fondue.


I was my usual classy self and went for mac and cheese...


... which was all right, a bit dry. That's what the wine is for, right, to wash things down?

Making this post is has me salivating, I would totally go again for the truffley cheesey things and more wine. If you're looking for it, go downstairs to the food court and follow the signs (it's kind of tucked out of sight).

  6. Believe it or not, I actually used to dislike mac n cheese BECAUSE Y'KNOW, KRAFT'S MAC N CHEESE ISN'T EXACTLY THE BEST FORAY INTO THE DELICACY THAT IS MAC AND CHEESE. Go glad I got to try the real thing because it is now one of my favourite things to cook. (Bonus: I get to load up as much cheese as I want into the dish hello heaven)

    1. Freedom to control the mac:cheese ratio is definitely a perk to making it yourself!

  8. Oh man, truffle cheese fondue sounds amazing with the weather we're having now! That's a shame about the mac and cheese though, I only ever have it at home but definitely need to try the real deal sometime.

  10. Looks like the perfect birthday get together! I'm in love with cheese, but the only downfall is I can only take so much dairy. Your photos always knows the best way to make someone hungry, even after a meal. ;)

  11. That mac and cheese looks good but yes, dry food calls for good wine. And maybe a nap afterwards

  16. oh my god, truffle cheese fondue. that place looks amazingggg! it's a shame about the mac & cheese though, it's funny how for something so basic it seems to be so hard for restaurants to get right.
