Melbourne's best late-night bars

As the shutters come down in other Australian capitals, Melbourne's vibrant nightlife is just hitting it's stride. Michael Harden burns the midnight oil at the city's best late-night bars and diners.

Nougat, salted peanut caramel and milk chocolate tart

What's not to love about a Snickers bar? All the elements are here, but if you don't feel like making your own nougat, you could always scatter some diced nougat in the base of the tart instead. The caramel is dark, verging on bitter, while a good whack of salt cuts through some of the sweetness - extra roasted salted peanuts on top can only be a good thing.

Apfel kuchen

"This is my mother's famous apple cake. The apples are macerated with sugar, cinnamon and lemon, and this lovely juice produces the icing," says Brigitte Hafner. The apples can be prepared the night before and kept in the fridge. This cake keeps well for four days and is at its best served the day after it's made."

Method

  • 01
  • For Mexican marinade, combine ingredients in a non-reactive container, add chicken, turn to coat, cover and marinate overnight.
  • 02
  • For dirty slaw, stir sugar, vinegar, salt and spices in a saucepan over medium-high heat until sugar dissolves. Bring to the boil, reduce heat and simmer to infuse (10 minutes). Strain and pour over vegetables in an airtight container and refrigerate overnight to pickle. Dirty slaw will keep refrigerated for 3 days.
  • 03
  • For tomatillo salsa, blend ingredients in a food processor to a purée. Refrigerate until required.
  • 04
  • For chipotle aïoli, process ingredients except oil in a food processor, then add oil in a thin steady stream until smooth and emulsified. Refrigerate until required. Aïoli will keep sealed and refrigerated for a week.
  • 05
  • Preheat oven to 180C. Heat a char-grill pan over high heat, wipe off excess marinade from chicken and grill, turning once, until just cooked (3-4 minutes). Place grated cheese on the base of brioche buns and cook in oven until cheese melts (5-7 minutes).
  • 06
  • Spread tomatillo salsa over cheese on bun bases and chipotle aïoli on top halves, add even amounts of pickled slaw on all bun halves, slice chicken, sandwich between bun halves and serve.

Note Begin this recipe a day ahead to marinate the chicken and pickle the slaw. Reuben Hills use Brasserie Bread brioche rolls. Dried Mexican oregano, chipotle chilli in adobe, green habanero hot sauce and chipotle hot sauce are available from select delicatessens and online from montereyfoods.com.au and fireworksfoods.com.au
