Pullman, Accor’s 5-star hotel brand, has launched a re-weaved Tapastry menu under the direction of culinary Ambassador, Justin North. A vibrant way to dine, the Tapastry menu combines artistry and gastronomy.
We enjoyed the selection of Tapastry dishes that showcased regional ingredients in innovative small plates - each created by Pullman’s Culinary Ambassador Justin North. Each plate was a small, colourful work of art that came together to create an experience for all the senses, similar to the beauty of a tapestry.

The Grilled half shell Queensland deep sea prawns, miso burnt garlic butter was one of our favourite courses from the Tapastry menu. The prawns were very fresh and the miso burnt garlic butter provided punchy fragrant flavours along with a luxurious and rich touch.
Goulburn Valley slow cooked pork belly and Asian slaw, steamed bun, house made chilli jam
The pork belly buns were another highlight. The fluffy, moist and slightly sweet bao buns went beautifully with an addictive Asian slaw which possessed a refreshing balance of sweet and sour elements and unctuous morsels of succulent pork belly.
Petuna ocean trout fillet served with caponata and polenta
We were also provided with the opportunity to try dishes from the Window’s Restaurant menu which were similarly enjoyable.
Cone bay barramundi with cous cous
Of particular note was the dish of Cone bay barramundi with cous cous which featured delicious Mediterranean and Middle Eastern flavours. Seared beautifully on the outside and wonderfully moist on the inside, the barramundi was stunning. The fluffy cous cous with sultanas were the perfect accompaniment.
Tapastry weaves together producers from all across Australia in a celebration of the diverse ingredients available throughout the country. A wonderful concept which invites guests to pause their busy schedules and discover local cuisine in a new and contemporary way with a spirit of sharing and conviviality.
