Sweet Sour Salt – Modern Asian Restaurant in Orange NSW

Sweet Sour Salt - Modern Asian Restaurant in Orange NSW a1

For those who are not familiar with Orange, it is a regional area with a population of about 40,000 and 4 hours away from Sydney CBD if you are driving. The key industries include agriculture, mining, health services and education (Wikipedia). Whilst it may seem like pub food is the prominent dining option in regional areas, you will be surprise with the options (other than pub food) available around town.

In my last dining post, I presented an unlikely dessert place in a pub. Today, I’d like to talk about a contemporary Asian restaurant called Sweet Sour Salt which I can forsee to be my favourite place for Asian food. We had a delicious dinner from there once, and until this day I am still craving the lychee crème brulee. The sweetness was perfectly balanced with a flowery hint of lychee. In addition, there was a nice surprise of an actual lychee when you scooped the bottom of the dessert. Sadly, I did not take a photo of this dessert at the time. So you just have to take my word for it. *wink*

Salt & Pepper Squid with Cucumber Salad $18

I did not realise it is available for lunch until I was there with my work mates. The lunches are at a lower price point, but no less impressive. I was really happy with the meal I had on the day, which was salt and pepper squid with Thai dressing. It was all you can hope for in salt and pepper squid:  lightly battered crispy exterior,  not overly chewy on the inside and the tangy and savoury Thai dressing simply tied the flavours together. Let’s just say I polished the bowl, including the dressing with the shared bowl of rice for the table. Yummo!

Since salt and pepper squid is a dish that can be done well in most places, I decided to go back, tagging along with my beloved and a friend in order to try the other dishes in the name of research ha!

If you want to have a quick lunch at the place, I’d recommend that you pre-order the food as it may take a while for the food to arrive depending how busy it was.
