Rood Food

The Imperial Hotel's month-long festival of drag and dining.

Erskineville's freshly renovated Imperial Hotel is now home to Priscillas, a "drag and dine" restaurant where you'll find everything from plant-based food to late-night drag shows. Now, Priscillas is hosting the cheeky and raunchy Rood Food festival until October 10.

A month-long festival of dirty dishes, cocktails and kinky drag, its magnum opus is the hilarious show Bone Appetite & Oral Outhouse. A three-act drag extravaganza performed by Sydney queens Krystal Kleer and Coco Jumbo, the show comes with a side of phallic fare, crude cocktails and an interactive game, titled the 'glory hole game'.

Including a three-course set menu (featuring a total of ten dishes) and a glass of bubbly on arrival, tickets are a very appropriate $69. Some of the dishes you should expect include Bachelor Balls (herbed zucchini balls with spiced yoghurt), The Gay Time Gag Ball (salted caramel ice cream with almond nuts) and Panna Knockers ('perky' vanilla panna cottas).

If you'd like to sip on more than just one glass of bubbles, you can choose from cocktails such as The Nut Buster ($17) and the The Blushing Blowy ($17). Brace yourselves.

You can also taste the tantalising drinks and food, without going all out on the set menu and show. The Rood Food a la carte menu and cocktails are available every night throughout the festival.

The Rood Food festival will run until October 10, with Bone Appetite & Oral Outhouse happening every Monday and Wednesday night from 6.30pm.
