Cuisine: Fusion, Middle Eastern, South Asian
Price Point: Mains from $15 - $30
Possibly Melbourne’s hippest neighbourhood, Brunswick’s cobbled streets are an intriguing mix of young creatives and Middle Eastern families, many of whom are directly descended from the original cameleers who played a key role in settling the Australian outback in the 1800’s.
With simple interiors offset by Arabian rugs, this authentic, neighbourhood gem draws on this legacy to reimagine the delicious flavours of Baluchistan which combine parts of Iran, Pakistan & Afghanistan.
Grab a bunch of friends, bring your favourite bottle and get stuck in. This is great-value food that will make you forget your manners and have you licking the plate clean.
Whole leg of lamb, marinated overnight in a secret blend of spices and slow roasted until tender, is a mind-blowing taste of ancient mountain culture, while saffron infused chicken thighs grilled until smoky are addictive alongside fluffy butter naan cooked in a tandoor oven. From paneer to pakora, daal to dessert, the huge range of dishes will have you re-visiting time and again.
