Space in Woden is the hottest spot for lunch and it’s hard to go past it for dishes that look like works of art and combine flavours and textures in exciting ways.
So it’s excellent that already Ricardo has introduced some more new dishes to try.
The menu this week features two new salads that are both very beautiful to look at and include ingredients that complement each other well.
The Chicken Peach Salad is especially delicious, full of fresh mint and coriander instead of the usual lettuce leaves, moist spiced chicken breast pieces and crisp peach slices garnished with coconut, chopped peanuts and watercress made perfect with a great nuoc cham dressing $18.90.
The new Smoked Trout Salad $18.90 pairs haloumi and watercress, watermelon and smoked trout, with the sweetness and crispness of pickled grapes and carrots, finished with pine nuts and a lemon dill crème fraiche dressing.
Both salads are light but substantial and you can enjoy the full dish without feeling uncomfortable.
Great if you can order two and swap to try both.
Still on the menu is the Pulled Pork salad with pearl couscous, almonds, peas, mint, feta, pomegranate and harissa yogurt $18.90…
..and a Roast Vegetable Salad with roast baby carrots, pumpkin, beetroot, green olive and almond tapenade, pickled grapes, walnuts, goats cheese, quinoa and lemon poppy seed dressing $18.90.
The gourmet burgers are still looking great….
Wagyu cheese burger $16.90…
….as is the Calamari $18.90 with sumac spiced calamari, red pepper hummus, smoked almonds, quinoa and watercress salad and citrus aioli $18.90.
