Fermenting in their own brilliance and welcoming diners everywhere into their lively establishment, The Moldy Fig is jazzing things up with food and entertainment inspired by New Orleans.
It might seem like an offensive thing to call someone, but the term 'moldy fig' is actually a compliment, and the bar staff will happily tell you the tale behind it. The restaurant itself models itself on the American south and beautifully replicates New Orleans' streets with immersive wall paintings. Often graced by jazz bands and other live entertainment, The Moldy Fig is proudly Louisianan to its core.
New Orleans is famous for its Cajun Creole cuisine, and that's exactly what The Moldy Fig is serving up. Anyone from Louisiana will be familiar with Gumbo, the official state dish that pairs a rich, meaty stew with rice. You can take it one step further with a creole jambalaya or hunker down with a hearty portion of red beans and rice or a helping of big mama's meatballs.
Of course, no southern state is a stranger to the grill and over at The Moldy Fig they're grilling up an absolute storm. All your favourite cuts, from lamb ribs to chicken wings and pulled pork are thrown onto the fire for the ultimate smoky depth. More often than not, they're covered with a delicious BBQ glaze and paired with heaps of slaw, dressings and sides. How's that for a jazzy supper?
