Wrapped in charred vine leaves the balance between crisp and tender was made perfect. All sitting in a burnt onion dip, with puffed grains adding a delightful crunch.

OLD CITY MIX 18

Easily my favourite dish of the night and one I could have over and over again. The chicken was marinated in an incredible fragrant spice mix and tossed with target radishes, wrapped in a golden fried pastry. I’ll tell you one thing, I smashed this thing at lightspeed it was so good!

ARABIC LAMB TARTAR 23

An arabic spin on a favourite of mine, the lamb was spiced and highly aromatic. The quail eggs added a rich creaminess, while the pickled okra brought a nice sharp bite to the mix.

CHARCOAL OCTOPUS 27

Served with Yemenite bread, pencil fennel and olives, this octopus was everything that we wanted and more. Tender, sticky, crispy, with a nice hint of heat from the harissa.

WOOD ROAST SPICED SHORT RIB 500G 48

This beast of a dish was cooked so well, we basically lifted the bone out of the meat.

The succulent beef was infused in Arabic spices with roast carrots and garlicky toum béarnaise. This dish is phenomenal.

MIDDLE EASTERN BOMBE ALASKA  16

This dessert was the bomb! No pun intended. The mixture of sticky smokey meringue and rich pistachio ice cream went perfectly with the caramelized banana bits.
