A Disney Degustation Has Landed In Sydney So Put Your Best Ball Gown On

Put on your glass slippers and call a pumpkin-carriage Uber to take you to Sydney’s restaurant nel., because their new and limited-run Disney degustation looks and sounds like something straight out of a fairytale.

The Once Upon A Time Disney degustation menu pays homage to all of our favourite Disney movies in the most mouth-watering way possible. The Mary Poppins-inspired “Spoonful of Sugar” dish starts the whole extravaganza, and it sounds like you’ll get a chance to recreate the spaghetti scene from one of the best (and most criminally overlooked) Disney films with the Lady and the Tramp-inspired spaghetti with basil pesto, pork, meatball and mozzarella foam. Don’t ask about the venison dish, named “Bambi’s Mum” (we’ll leave that for you to discover on your own).

Dessert is looking good too, with an indulgent banana mousse coming to us courtesy of The Lion King. Other faves like The Little Mermaid, Cinderella, Peter Pan and Snow White and the Seven Dwarves will all be represented in various dishes as well.

But if we’re being honest, it’s the cocktails that we’re most intrigued by. Matching drinks are optional, but if you decide to go all out then you’ll get a tea-infused pisco sour cocktail – served out of Chip from Beauty and the Beast, no less.

Up above is the bright blue gin cocktail poured out of Aladdin’s magic lamp (that already looks way better than the CGI Genie monstrosity from the upcoming live-action remake) and the Snow White cocktail is made from apple moonshine, of course.

The Once Upon A Time Disney degustation will run from April 9 until June 29, and costs $118 per person, with an extra $95 per person for matching wines and cocktails. For more information or to book a seat at the table, visit the restaurant nel. website.
