We all know the BridgeClimb is one of Sydney's most iconic tourist attractions, but no one has ever done it quite like this. In a world first, Australian chef Luke Mangan took two diners on the culinary journey of their life, as they enjoyed a three-course meal perched atop the Sydney Harbour Bridge. (In case you were wondering, the table and chairs were as carefully strapped in as the two diners, Jin Zexin and Samantha Strachan.)
Lucky for them, Mangan had carefully selected the most bridge (and wind) friendly items from his extensive repertoire - the three course meal consisted of bite sized servings of Luke's signature kingfish sashimi; organic egg crab omelette, enoki mushroom and herb salad, miso mustard broth; and, fittingly, his Australian lamingtons. As you can see from the picture, the two diners have probably had more filling dinners in their lifetime. But hey, who can beat that million dollar view of Sydney Harbour as your dining companion?
The occasion marked another world first for Luke Mangan, who's officially now the only chef in the world who has his name to food across four modes of transport and five countries: planes, trains, ships and shore. "It only seems fitting to now also take our food to the top of Australia's iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge," adds Mangan. "Showcasing Australia's finest produce via our signature dishes definitely complements this amazing view of our beautiful city."
