If you love to eat local, there’s one restaurant in the Blue Mountains where nearly everything on your plate, except the seafood, is sourced from within an eighty kilometre radius!
Located within the Kyah Boutique Hotel, Blaq Restaurant and Bar is a welcome addition to the Blackheath Dining scene, with a strong focus on using local produce and suppliers. Out back of the kitchen, there’s a substantial cool climate kitchen garden, where the majority of the restaurant produce is grown. There’s also a chicken coop, producing an abundance of fresh eggs for the restaurant. Blaq’s menu is a fusion of both Asian and European flavours, with Head Chef Mate Herceg drawing on many personal food memories to create the menu with dishes that simply sing with local produce. Noteworthy dishes include the roasted Sichuan baby eggplant, the Fremantle Octopus with roasted heirloom beetroots, and a house-made, vegan, gluten-free Gnocchi, with Kyah garden vegetables and salsa verde.
When you stay at Kyah, guests can wander the gardens, as well as enjoy a game of tennis on the court, and there’s an outdoor wood-fired hot tub to relax in. For singles and couples, there’s ‘The King Rooms’, oozing style and charm, as well as family suite options with two bedrooms, lounge rooms, and all the mod cons. Kyah Boutique Hotel, and Blaq Restaurant and Bar effortlessly combine to create the ultimate destination dining experience.
