REVIEW

By day, in its café incarnation, Močan (they pronounce it 'mochan') pumps, locals lining up outside and packing onto outdoor seats. By night, it's quieter, which gives you some elbow room to mix the egg yolk into your Crookwell steak tartare. Raw scallop is served as is with lightly charred chorizo, and Narooma oysters come topped with tangy pickled wakame. Bigger dishes embrace Middle Eastern flavours – pink-breasted quail arrives with vibrant harissa sauce and merguez crumb, while aromatic lamb shoulder sits atop a smoked yoghurt bejewelled with pomegranate. You'll be eating these sitting at the central bar or on stools under the recycled timber wall. No, Močan doesn't win points for comfort, but it's homey and fittingly eclectic for this corner of New Acton, and has a tight list of fun wines and a standout chocolate mousse to cap off your night.
