couple new snacks! *include the above

empanada

 

one of our sous-chefs, a certain cristobal bascunan, is chileno – and this is his empenada chileno.  inside is beef, pork, egg and black olive; and outside is a sauce called pebre, made of scallions, cilantro, chill peppers, tomato, vinegar and garlic.  big flavour in a little parcel on deliciousness.

middle eastern veg skewers

roasted cauliflower, lemon-stuffed olives, dried fig, babaganouj, dukkah, herbs, lemon zest.

fancy special: hotate-wasabi

this was a bit of a play on the more traditional tacowasabi – which you might have seen at your favorite neighbourhood isakaya made with octopus. here we have scallop with daikon, seaweed, wasabi, and finger lime. served with nori sheets.
