Restaurants like Coda have earned Flinders Lane its reputation as a locus of hip Australian dining. Adam D'Sylva's open kitchen is centrestage in a basement with statement lighting, leather banquettes and laser-sharp service. The cosmopolitan Asian menu kicks off with spicy morsels of Moreton Bay bug and charred pineapple wrapped in betel leaf, then turns up the Thai in a salad of calamari, green papaya and nahm jim dressing. Sommelier Travis Howe has a gift for choosing mood-appropriate wines from an exciting rollcall of Old and New World talents. You could easily blow the appetite on the duck curry, a dense and smoky concoction redolent with tamarind and galangal, and jumbo nuggets of pork hock showered with sriracha peanut praline, but it would be a shame to miss sweets like toasted meringue with vanilla sponge, mango and yuzu. If the lengthy carte leaves you floundering, go one of the exceptional set menus.
