With its stripped-back interior and generous shared plates packed with vibrant flavours, this funky 90-seater is bustling from breakfast to dinner under former Aquacaf cohorts Ben McLeod, Jordan Theodoros and Martin Corcoran. Choose from prepared food along the service counter (lamb shank empanadas, roast pumpkin with green tahini) or blackboard specials, and team them with something from a wine list that stretches from SA to choice international bottles and cocktails. The mulloway pasty made famous at Aquacaf makes an appearance, but the Middle Eastern and Asian-inspired dishes are more impressive still - turkey meatballs braised with preserved lemon, pearl barley, mint and broad beans, say, or shakshuka with harissa, labne and mint. Outstanding salads, such as pomegranate and chilli with roast tomato, spinach, burghul and cinnamon fried onions, are bold in culinary influences, and served with aplomb.
