If you’re after food for the soul, you can’t go past the devilishly good Seven Sins. I’ve known Head Chef and owner Seb Sindermann since his apprentice days – about 15 years. I can tell you that he is a very good chef. Previously, he has bangged the pans as Head Chef of the Naked Apple Cider House. He’s branched out on his own, with Seven Sins Perth Hills, in Roleystone.
You may have visited Seven Sins as it’s previous incarnation, Roleys on the Ridge. The cosy dining room is quite literally on the edge of the scarp, making for breathtaking views. Inside, the welcoming dining room feels cosy and rustic with recycled jarrah, corrugated tin, and enormous Woolamalloo wharfing beams.
German beers and local wines are on the drinks list.
Seven Sins, The Menu
Seb has German heritage, reflected in the Seven Sins menu. The menu features dishes all made with quality produce and generous serves. I’d been dreaming of the crispy crackle pork knuckle ($39, GF). It had been a while since my last pork knuckle – this was at Seb’s old family restaurant Beethoven’s in Applecross. It was as good as I remembered. Extra buttery potato mash, sauerkraut, apple mousse and shiraz jus. The meat was flavorsome, the crackle and sides spot on. It is a portion not for the faint hearted… I did have to take a doggy bag home with me!
My mum loved the chicken breast ($35). Wrapped in Black forest ham, a top a shitake and baby leek risotto, drizzled in a fortified reduction. The moist chicken breast was enormous – nearly heading into turkey territory!
The kids menu, affectionately called the ‘Little Sinners Menu’ has a choice of quality dishes. Little Chef was stoked with his choice of a beef schnitzel burger and fries.
I have no idea where we found room for dessert. The Dark chocolate brownie ($13), cappuccino choc mousse and double Dutch choc ice-cream is well-worth squeezing in!
Seven Sins Perth Hills is found at Roleystone’s quaint Brackenridge Village. You’ll find small businesses including Meraki Collective and local institution Blue Sky Bread organic bakery here. With great service, delicious hearty meals and that 5 star view – be sure to take a drive up the hill to enjoy Seven Sins Roleystone. It sure made a glutton of me!
Find Seven Sins at 3/1 Soldiers Road, Roleystone.
