Signature dishes from Southern Germany and Austria decorate the extensive menu of the Hubertus Club Restaurant, located at Luddenham in Sydney’s West - offering a true taste of some of the best variety that Eastern European food has to offer.
Hungarian Goulasch, flavoursome and filling.
Welcoming and homely
The scenic countryside that surrounds the Hubertus Club restaurant makes you feel like your a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of suburban Sydney. The staff are friendly and quick to answer any questions which you may have relating to the menu, providing warmth to the welcoming and fun ambience.
Scenic, country surroundings.
The decor is traditional with timber furnishing, antlers on the wall and flags promoting Erdinger Beer. I advise you to do come on an empty stomach, skip lunch and savour your hunger for the generous servings provided.
A vibrant atmosphere
The starters range from the traditional Langosh ($7.50) served with garlic and sour cream for dipping - a traditional bread/doughnut like starter which is divine. The Viennese style crumbed mushrooms are also a popular choice for something a bit different.
Mouth watering Langosh
No Eastern European meal is complete without a good ice cold beer. The bar is in the adjoining room offering many of the favourites. I went with the Bonator Doppelbock ($7.50 per bottle), a golden and fruity drop. The celebrated beer culture is evident with the Octoberfest merchandise for sale all year round: Prost.
Ice cold and robust flavours
Now for the mains - a diverse and inviting menu serving up traditional favourites like: Roast Pork Knuckle ($28.50) served with sautéed potatoes, sauerkraut, crackling and pork jus. For duck lovers the Roast Duck ($31.50) is amazing value with half a duck served with house made red cabbage, potato dumplings and jus. Being half Hungarian I had to sample the Pork Goulasch ($25.50), a Hungarian style slow braised pork served with spaetzle.
Meat lovers will adore the Mixed Schnitzel ($26.50), Viennese style crumbed fillets of chicken and pork served with fresh salad.
Mixed Schnitzel is delicious and generous
The goulasch was rich in flavour and matched wonderfully with spaetzle (a small pasta) bringing back memories of my grandmas kitchen. I also tried the pork and chicken schnitzels with the potato salad. Flavours were fresh and original, delicious.
Spaetzle - A light pasta
By this stage dessert was a challenge after the small mountain of food I had just devoured, but I started to get plate envy as I saw other tables receiving their strudels and crepes...caved without much convincing.
Amazing Butterscotch crepes
The deserts range from around $14 and include a selection of Apple strudel served with fresh cream, as well as Creme Brûlée served with blueberry compote and Crepe Suzette. I had Butterscotch crepes served with candied walnuts - a lighter less indulgent desert which was absolutely amazing. I also ordered a Swiss Coffee ( $9.50) which was with a shot of chocolate liqueur, and topped with fresh cream. Almost a desert within itself.
The atmosphere is fun and family friendly, and great for groups with long style tables.
There is a kids corner with toys for the restless rug-rats. A great location for somewhere different with character, culture, and a menu of traditional deliciousness.
A fun and family friendly environment
Great for a night out, reservations recommended.
