Even though we live in Sydney I always love being a tourist in my own city. So when I was asked if I wanted to stay at Adina apartments on Crown street I happily packed my bags and brought along me better half Mr NQN. The Adina is an apartment complex with large modern suite apartments and they make the most of their Surry Hills location. They may not be in the CBD but they have a neighbourhood rich in shopping and eating options such as Hudson Meat which is a fantastic butchery and just downstairs there is a direct line to the famous Bill's cafe where Bill Granger's ricotta hotcakes are legend. You could also do your own version of our Surry Hills Walking Tour buying in goodies from various shops and cooking them right in the apartment.
Their latest promotion is one that makes use of the kitchen facilities in the apartments and their neighbours at Hudson Meat. It's for those times when you are away staying in a hotel but you feel like a low key night in. You can cook your very own Cape Grim grass fed steaks with delicious cafe de Paris butter (you know that amazingly yummy butter that has over 20 ingredients in it!), sides of kipfler potatoes, beans and eschallots, relax in the comfort of your own room reading your very own copy of Crown Street Cooks and enjoying your bottle of Cockfighter's Ghost wine.
Thanks to Adina Apartments, one lucky Not Quite Nigella reader will win overnight accommodation for two adults in one bedroom apartment at Adina Apartment Hotel Sydney, Crown St and a Hudson Meat steak package for two including grass fed scotch fillets steaks with Cafe de Paris butter, kipfler potatoes, green beans and eschallots, a copy of Crown Street Cooks and a bottle of Cockfighter's Ghost wine worth $585! The book Crown Street Cooks and the bottle of Cockfight's Ghost isn't usually included in the package but Adina loves NQN readers so they have kindly added that to make your stay complete ;) All you have to do is tell me who you will take along with you and why! Simply add your answer as a comment to the story. The competition ends at midnight AEST 27th of August, 2011 and the prize is valid for 6 months from when it is drawn. You can enter this competition once daily and it is open to anyone within Australia but transport to Adina is not included.
The winner is: Matthew L. of NSW
Best of luck!
Lots of love,
