A certain place in Sydney has taken the mission of serving healthy dining options. "Healthy eating, happy dining" is theme at the new O Bar and Dining restaurant.
O Bar and Dining is Michael Moore's new baby that offers dishes that are amazing in taste but also prepared with health conscious methods. It is located on level 47 (where Summit used to be located) of Australia Square. The setting is very modern and hip. It has the combined urbane vibe of a Tao nightclub in the U.S. and a stylish Hong Kong bar but somewhat laid back. It boasts of a revolving 360 degrees view of Sydney (including the Harbour Bridge and Opera House).
All the dishes are based on recipes in Michael's cookbook called Blood Sugar. The menu showcases healthier versions of dishes that we've come to love over the years but with a healthy twist. O Bar and Dining simplified their dishes by using ingredients that are fresh and good to one's health.

After our meet and greet session with Michael, fellow food bloggers Helen, Suze, Jacq and I were seated at the dining area. Browsing through the menu was pretty intense. The menu was so extensive and a lot of things sounded so good. Then finally, I was able to make my selections:
|Spanner crab cakes & quinoa crust, tahini, lemon yoghurt|
|rib eye steak 350g & home ground mustard|
|Hot chocolate soufflé|
Rather than just making food look good, their methods driven by their sense of social responsibility are very admirable. O Bar and Dining's mission to serve flavourful food and promote healthy eating is a refreshing movement in Sydney's food scene.
Ramen Raff was invited to dine at O Bar and Dining as a guest.
