Peel Street

One of the city's first laneway bistros, Peel Street has refined its offerings and confirmed its place among the best. At first glance it looks no-nonsense - bare brick, concrete floor, huge blackboards - but the generosity of its dishes, flavours and hospitality shines. Don't be deceived by the terms "smaller" and "larger" on the menu; plates contain enough for two people, and even four, respectively. A salad of plums, figs, pears and walnuts comes with a quenelle of blue cheese ice-cream, which softens to dress the crisp, sweet fruits. Pork belly and prawns with greens and pineapple balances hot, sweet and sour Asian flavours. Slow-cooked lamb comes as a single piece, so diners serve each other, scooping up the accompanying herbs, feta, couscous and tomato. A tight drinks list is food-friendly and adventurous. The few desserts offer seasonal variations on luscious parfaits, or fruit-laden meringue. It's buzzy, busy and bright, ideal to share with good friends.
